To be fair, it is kind of hard to say that a song outweighs all other songs from not only its own genre, but from the others as well. So to make the matter simple, I’ve made a list of the best songs out there in each of the four major modern genres.
Well, a list like this, there is bound to be a fair bit of personal bias and it is quite understandable if a person hasn’t heard some songs! So as I dare compile this rather debatable list, I would just like to say that all these songs are the greatest in my opinion and among the ones which I’ve heard.
Since it is necessary to be fair to all genres and not just the ones I like more, I’ll make different lists for the best songs in each genre.
Here are some of the rap and hip hop songs from what must be the best hip hop albums ever!
