Share via emailShare on WhatsApp


To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their “Hot Rap Songs” chart- Billboard put together a list of the top 100 performing rap songs ever. The criteria for the song selection was based “…on actual performance on the weekly Hot Rap Songs chart, since the chart’s inception in the March 11, 1989, issue. Rankings are based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 having the greatest value and weeks at lower positions have less.” Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” came in at 100 and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” came in at number 1.  This list seems a bit off. No Jay Z or Kanye on this top 10.  When you think about the artists and the hits they released that have been around since 1989 until now – this list falls short. Do you agree? Comment below.

1. Thrift Shop – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz, 2013

3. Hot Boyz – Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott ft. Eve, Nas & Q-Tip, 1999
