The Essential Top 25 - The Hip-Hop Edition

So I'm pretty bored at work, so I just scrolled down my iPod and came up with my personal top double dozen plus 1. Understand this was probably the hardest list to pare down, but I still did it in like 10 minutes! Surprisingly there's no Jay, no Big, no Rakim, but had this been another day, maybe they would've made the list.

Plus if I ever have new readers, I don't want them to think that I'm just an R&B thug haha. I bleed hip-hop yall. I'm surprised the Large Professor shows up 3 times on this, tied for most with Nasir.

So without further ado and presented in alphabetical order to quell any potential controversy are Reeg's top 25 Hip-Hop Songs [currently on his iPod]. I think real heads will agree for the most part.
