No one around wanna talk about Whats Up Fatlip, Broken Language or Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshaush?

a hoy hoy, Thursday, 28 May 2020 10:52 (one month ago) link

spottieottie is probably the "best" of these, but im very sorely tempted to pull the trigger for rubberband man

voodoo chili, Thursday, 28 May 2020 12:33 (one month ago) link

gonna mix it up and go w Lefleuf Leflah Eskoshka

Spottie, Friday, 29 May 2020 00:08 (one month ago) link

big fan of that one

ciderpress, Friday, 29 May 2020 00:41 (one month ago) link

Tough call. Went for PE mainly because I think that song deserves more voted but could just as easily have gone for Jeru, Jay-Z, Nas or ODB

paolo, Friday, 29 May 2020 08:13 (one month ago) link

Brooklyn Zoo is probably not the best but I'm still voting for it

calzino, Friday, 29 May 2020 09:04 (one month ago) link

I ended up voting for ODB. RIP.

pomenitul, Friday, 29 May 2020 16:39 (one month ago) link

Tha Crossroads, and it should've been in the top 10.

Rapper's Delight

A White, White Gay (cryptosicko), Saturday, 30 May 2020 01:01 (one month ago) link

The poll was in 2011

Don't remember this and can't seem to find it...My three favourite are "Eye Know," "O.P.P.," and "Rapper's Delight."

clemenza, Saturday, 30 May 2020 02:38 (one month ago) link

Eazily I approach, the 100 GREATEST RAP (OR HIP HOP OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT) TRACKS OF THE GODS because I ain't no joke.

It was hard to find cos I gave it a dumb name

I went with You Gots to Chill, but was tempted by several others (Put it on notably). Glad to discover Heltah Skeltah.

Nabozo, Saturday, 30 May 2020 07:40 (one month ago) link

I voted Luda. It is such a humongous beat.

who's the dirty, disgusting comedian who voted for T.I.'s "Rubberband Man" now that the whole world knows the dirty, disgusting truth about him and stretchy bands

'What's Up Fatlip' is my favourite discovery from this poll. Love it!

The songs that got no votes >>>>>>>>>> Rappers Delight.

How the hell did that receive the most votes? You guys just all really love plagiarism and wack verses about soggy macaroni?

a hoy hoy, Monday, 1 June 2020 17:17 (one month ago) link

the very first soggy macaroni verses on wax.

(sorry for not voting)

Ok, just click on the link. :)

King Tim III has lines about tea, honey, Almond Joy, old jam, Burger King, french fries, and it beat Rapper's Delight to talking about hot butter on... say, what was it? -- but no verses about soggy macaroni. The record stands!
