BC’s Top 50 Fav Hip-Hop Songs of All Time (#10-1)

Hip-Hop-Albums

Well, we’ve reach the pinnacle… the BEST OF THE BEST… the Rocky of Hip Hop lists, if you will. Or Rambo. Or Arnold Schwarzenegger in Jingle All The Way. Or whatever.

I have listened to each of these songs hundreds, if not thousands, of times. They are in heavy rotation every time I DJ, as well as in my car and my iTunes… and in my heart. (Insert sad fog-horn here)

Now, before I ramble too much, let’s finish this bad boy.

[Throwback Thursday] Warren G feat. Nate Dogg | “Regulate”

It’s been just over a year since Nate Dogg passed away, and I thought it appropriate to honor him with what is probably his best, and most well-known, track. Warren G’s “Regulate” introduced the world to Nate Dogg’s laid-back, soulful voice, which masked the fact that Nate has no problems with gunning a mofo down.

After “Regulate,” Nate went on to be featured in a slew of other hits, such as Mark Ronson’s “Ooh Wee” and, of course, Dr. Dre and Snoop’s “The Next Episode,” where Nate drops words to live by: “Smoke weed everyday.”

The Game feat. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg | “Drug Test”

West Coast represents in-full on the latest track by The Game. “Drug Test” is going to be on The Game’s long-awaited LP, The R.E.D. Album, and features G-funk legends Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre (who’s Detox album may be more of a legend than he is, at this point).

“Drug Test” features hard beats and a catchy hook with the tag line “Let’s get high off somethin.” It’s nice to know they aren’t being picky.

Dr. Dre feat. Eminem & Skylar Grey | “I Need A Doctor”

This is definitely a rough and unfinished track from Dr. Dre‘s long-awaited, supposedly upcoming album, Detox. I gotta say, though, that even with all these “unfinished” tracks that have been leaking out over the last year, I have no idea what to expect with Dre’s new album. “I Need A Doctor” is epic, with Eminem practically shouting out his rhymes, and Dre almost half-assing his. The previously leaked “Kush” is much better, in my opinion.

Let’s hope this is just a diamond in the rough, and the new album ends up being Chronic 2001 caliber.

Dr. Dre feat. Snoog Dogg, Akon | “Kush”

Dr. Dre‘s first (supposed) official single in years, and it’s about, what else, smoking weed. But that’s what we love about the D-R-E, right? Actually, Dre has been quoted as saying this is the only track that’s about weed, so I guess the rest will be about being rich and lifting weights, but I don’t care, because it’s Dr. Dre and we’ve been waiting on Detox for over 10 years.

MUSCLE MILK

It’s also got a verse from Dre’s right-hand man, Snoop Dogg, and some wailing/singing/whatever from Akon.
