The first rap song I ever heard, and like most people, I didn't realize it was rap....

It's got all the elements:
essentially spoken-word over a simple rythmic instrumental track
drugs and alcohol
violence and misogyny (not much of the latter)
social/political commentary

Ice-T, Public Enemy, early Jay-Z, Wu Tang, NWA, Afrika Bambaattaa, Sugarhill Gang and...

Outkast, who came out of the gates swinging and let two albums fly of what I thought would be the future of rap music. Then they just fizzled out and now we have the current breed of shit that bores me to tears. I was hoping that "Bombs Over Baghdad" was going to light a bigger spark in rap music. To me that is one of the most perfect tracks ever made in Rap. Nothing like it.

Missy Elliot kicks my ass, but even she has become a little stale these days.

Ludacris and Busta Rhymes both had some great stuff to start off with, but have become cheap pale imposters of themselves as of late.

Don't forget CB-4 bitches!!! ;)
