I can accept B.O.B. as song of the decade even though its probably not it. It's a great song and I fucking memorized the entire thing. It works well for impressing the ladies at karaoke out here in Tokyo.

Somehow I have no Clipse or Royce on this list. I just can't think of particular songs. I like it all. That's how I am with a lot of rap. I just fall in love with songs for a week or two and listen to them so much that I'm over them. I tried to pick songs that I still get excited about when I hear them. It's really hard to put them in order after the top 15 or so.

But just so we're clear, I could have just listed the Clipse's full albums.

EDIT: I forgot all about Convenience Stores by Buddy Wakefield. That one is top 20 for sure.

so anybody got the 'mp3 collection of all these tracks' hook up yet?
i barely know any in the whole list. i'm out of touch with the cool kids.


I'm sure if you search piratebay or something like it you can find the list. If you feel like doing it more legally, lala is selling most of the mp3s on that list for 50 cents apiece: http://www.lala.com/#content/P2K.

I agree with Ic here. The lack of underground rap is because underground rap totally sucks lately. And yes, I have no problem with Jay havig more than one track on there-- he should.

Plus, SYBG is a great pop song. The list, for what it is, looks fine to me. I don't know what some of y'all were expecting.

I agree underground hiphop (what does underground even mean? is Killer Mike underground? Gucci? Atmosphere?) hasn't given us much this decade but it's complete absence is more indicative of Pitchfork's (and Pitchfork-esque hiphop listener's) movement away from that whole scene.

This is also true.

This goes for a lot of people, some of whom in good faith. Once they got over the twinned notions that a) putatively "commercial" hip hop is necessarily without intelligence, sincerity and artistry and that b) hip hop that is smart, sincere, and artistic is necessarily made by people who avowedly reject the worldviews and sensibilities of commercial hip hop (or if they don't necessarily, but are white folks), they seem to have no need for intelligent, sincere, artistic hip hop that does reject the aesthetic and political sensibilities of more popular hip hop. If that makes sense. It's like people woke up and realized that Cam'ron or Guccie are witty, good writers and if Cam'ron is witty and smart, then I have no need for Sage Francis. And they pat themselves on the back for having once been racist. Then they blame said racism on, say, Sole and 'em and reject them for it.
I'm not saying pfork does that but I've seen a bunch of people go through this charade. We've all seen it. It's not really anything new.

I agree, trust me I know; I pitch stories to them all the time which they'll pass on for Grizzly Bear or The Bird And The Bee or some other bs band.

Sure, they definitely pander to trendy, hipster shit. But you have to admit that underground rap simply has been blowing it for a while now.

I totally disagree with this list, but how can anyone agree on music? The good thing about the list is I was reminded of a lot of songs I liked but forgot about.

I do agree about underground rap blowing it lately. There's some decent stuff out there, but it seems like a lot of crap is done just for the sake of completing a track. I'm waiting for someone to spend some time trying to craft an epic masterpiece. I'm sick of stuff getting hyped as the "next shit" and it sounds like the "rest shit".

On that list, I'm glad they mentioned Bombs Over Baghdad. That song is just incredible in how it progresses and I wish more artists would take chances like this in hip hop. The video was one of the best I've seen, too.

Isn't this where Trav comes in and tells you it's because you don't have any friends?

wow... i've never been dissed on the SFR before! nice!

one might think the way i look puts me at a disadvantage, but i get along equally well with hippies and rednecks, neither can tell what i really am, it comes in quite handy whether im touring in america or europe. the beard isnt a fashion statement, i've had it since i was 18, its just proof that i only look in the mirror once a month.
