  2. #2

    Default

    10 - Slick Rick La Di Da Di
    9 - Murs Walk Like A Man
    8 - Saukrates Vietnam
    7 - Ghostface Killah - The Hilton f. Raekwon
    6 - Brother Ali Dorian
    5 - Immortal Technique Dance With The Devil
    4 - Vakill - Fallen
    3 - Jay-Z Friend Or Foe
    2 - Eminem Stan
    1 - Biz Markie - Vapors

    pretty generic fucking list to be honest. if we're talking la di da di, dance with the devil and stan, how in the fuck was gimme the loot/warning/suicidal thoughts not included? one love/rewind/fetus/undying love? half of kool g rap's catalogue? it was a good day???? 1/4 of outkast's catalogue? this is completely ignoring the entire discographies of common, the roots, mos def, and tu fuggin pac.

    whatever. i dont even know what i'm so mad about.

    my favorite storytellers r gza nas and kool g. they had none of those on that list. lol at mentioning ghostface and not mentioning impossible. wtf impossible imo should b number 1.

    and seriously this story is way 2 underrated.

    how come no one mentions it.

    Your picks are just as, if not more, generic than the list tbf. This is very far from the list I would've chosen, but I wouldn't call it generic.

    Word to Me & Jesus.., I would also have Killah Priest's Deja Vu and Illogic - First Trimester which might just be the most slept on storytelling joint ever imho...

    that was my point. if they're gonna include some of those more generic cuts it a shame they dont have the other heavy-hitters.

    the dude wasn't trying to make the ultimate top 10 list. he said so in the beginning. if that was the case, Children's Story and Shakey Dog would probably be #1 and #2
