'B.O.B.'

Could have been Time's up (missed it), Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers, Can I Kick it, Gimme the Loot.

But actually I went nostalgically for the epic fun of Me and Jesus the Pimp in a '79 Grenada Last Night

Gimme The Loot

paolo, Saturday, 30 May 2020 11:21 (one month ago) link

I don't get what the big deal about Rebel Without A Pause is. Sure it's a great track but for me it's one of the weaker songs on Nation Of Millions.

paolo, Saturday, 30 May 2020 11:21 (one month ago) link

Ha, easily. I actually discovered it through that ilm poll and it defined my taste since.

g simmel, Saturday, 30 May 2020 11:46 (one month ago) link

I had both "Work It" and "99 Problems" #1 on year-end lists; "99 Problems" seems like a good vote today.

clemenza, Saturday, 30 May 2020 13:52 (one month ago) link

Voted for I Can't Go to Sleep. Always found that one so unbearably sad and the Isaac sample is just perfect.

YES! The rhythm! The rebel!

Without a pause is how I voted for PE.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Monday, 1 June 2020 00:01 (one month ago) link

at least nine of these are the best

massage angry pixels (sic), Monday, 1 June 2020 20:49 (one month ago) link

'paid in full' over ' rebel without a pause'. 'the show' is great too.

i still think hypnotize is bad

Spottie, Tuesday, 2 June 2020 00:12 (one month ago) link

beat is dope, otherwise yeah, pretty mediocre pop rap.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Tuesday, 2 June 2020 00:15 (one month ago) link

what does it all mean ?

budo jeru, Tuesday, 2 June 2020 00:16 (one month ago) link

even the beat kinda plods a bit.

Spottie, Tuesday, 2 June 2020 00:19 (one month ago) link

dunno. it's mostly braggadocio (and those other tropes).
