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
