    That's funny, because as far as I am aware, Weird Al has never done a parody without the artsist's permission.
    Maybe I am mistaken.

    As for best rap songs, I am an old school junkie.
    I've been listening to Rap for prbably longer than most of todays Rap fans have been alive (since the late 70's, early 80's) and watched it downslide hard since the early - mid 90's.

    Eric B and Rakim's Let the Rythm Hit 'Em has been on constant rotation in my CD player for three weeks now.
    Poor Righteous Teachers
    NWA's Straight Outta Compton
    I could go on with the list, but I think the picture is probably pretty clear.
    With a few exceptions, there hasn't been much worth anything on the Rap scene in the past 10 - 15 years.
    And most of those exceptions have been around longer than the slump has, like A Tribe Called Quest.
    When Rap became an industry it lost itself, just like everything else that is co-opted by big business and turned into a "product".

    Please learn English and stop making yourself look like an ass.
    Displaying poor grammar skills doesn't make you cool, hard core, or anything else other than a simple-minded fool who cares more about image than substance.
    In other words, the typical consumer of the "Rap Industry".
    You are nothing more than a dollar sign and sheep to record execs and they are playing you like the fool that you are.
    You don't have to be a "playa" to enjoy quality Rap music.

    Well I remember watching the VH1 "behind the Music" about this. Here is what Wiki says:


    Although Yankovic traditionally secures permission from the artists he parodies (even though this is not legally required), and was told by his record label that Coolio had given permission, Coolio later claimed that he had not given such permission. This created a minor controversy, as speculation surfaced that Coolio had actually given permission but later claimed he hadn't in the fear that allowing the parody wouldn't be seen as "cool," or that Yankovic's record label lied to Yankovic in the hopes that the song would become popular. Yankovic later stated on VH-1's Behind the Music that he had written a sincere letter of apology to Coolio which was never returned, and that Coolio never complained when he received his royalty check from proceeds of the song. A series of photos taken at the XM Satellite Radio booth at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show suggests that Yankovic and Coolio may have made amends. [1]. According to Al, he was as suprised as anyone when Coolio came over to chat.

    Amish Paradise is the shiznit.

    "It's four thirty in the morning and I'm milking cows.
    Jebediah's feeding chickens and Jacob plows. Fool.
    And I've been milking and plowing so long that even Ezekial thinks that my mind is gone!"

    Truly awe-inspiring.

    I get a kick out of 1-800-suicide by the Gravediggaz.

    "Six fucking devils stepped up playing brave God
    Had the fucking nerve to try and enta my grave yard
    I'm the Ryzarector, be my sacrafice
    Commit suicide and I'll bring you back to life
    The first was convinced
    Stuck a water hose in his mouth at full blast so his head can explode
    Second said hmmmm that's good but I can top it
    Put an ax up to his head and then he chopped it
    Blood shot out in every direction
    The rest didn't know what to do, I made suggestions
    Put a slug in your mug, overdose on a drug
    Wet your hair stick a knife in the plug
    Or be like Richard Pryor set your balls on fire
    Better yet go hang yourself with a barbed wire
    Three and Four fell deep into spell and
    Ran to the zoo, locked themselves in a lion's den
    Number Five said it ain't worth being alive
    Smoked a dust suede, mixed it with cynaide
    The only one to escape was number Six
    He went home
    Sat in the tub and slit his wrists
    Yeah, more graves to dig. Goodbye
    There's no need to cry...
    ... cause we all die"

    The Buckwheat Rap is cool too.

    What all this nonsense about rap being unintelligent?Ebonics are stupid, not rap. Listen to Nas, Akon, some Kanye West(not a lot), or even a lot of unreleased Jadakiss. I'll admit that most of the rap artists of the day aren't the brightest light bulb in the knife drawer, but rap and all music are just poetry and literature enhanced. You can't say it's stupid just because amatuers rule the industry.

    Why do you keep light bulbs in your knife drawer?
    Seems a pretty silly thing to me.

    Rap is the worst musical genre in existence. Even worse than opera (if you could call it a 'musical' genre...)

    Hi Qbert

    this list is niot all that man,.... Straight outta compton is one of the only ones in the top 50 i would class as any good.

    Lords of the Underground were pretty cool though...

    They did a tune way back called here come the lords off their 1st album which was cool, , all of the frist album was pretty cool now i come to think about it.

    KRS-One though he is the master
    take care zak
  22. Zakariya04 and it was Valued Senior Member

    Hey bGhost

    i hope all is well

    these 2pac songs, were they out after he died or before?

    i find 2pac so strange as it appears that he released more songs after his death than before... this can almost be said too for biggie smalls....

    If you want some hiphop get slick rick "greatest adventures of" pure genuis"

    Gbert Shook 1's was well good and that come sin at 53 according to your list
    Check out slick ricks lyrics

    Well, it was one of those days -- not much to do
    I was chillin downtown, with my old school crew
    I went into a store -- to buy a slice of pizza
    And bumped into a girl, her name was mona -- what?
    Mona lisa (what? ) *singing* mona lisa, so men made you..
    Youknowhatimsayin? so I said, excuse me, dear
    My gosh, you look nice!
    Put away your money
    Ill buy that slice!
    She said, thanks - Id rather a slice of you
    Im just kidding, but thats awfully nice of you
    The compliment showed she had a mind in her
    And when I smiled (ping!) I almost blinded her
    She said, great scott! are you a thief?
    Seems like you have a mouth full of gold teeth
    Ha-ha, hah! had to find that funny
    So I said, no child, I work hard for the money
    And calling me a thief? please! dont even try it (right!)
    Sit down eat your slice of pizza, and be quiet
    She almost got cut short -- you know, scissors
    She tried to disrespect who? ! the grand wizard
    Me! well whats your name, son?
    Mc ricky d, but not to be so harsh I said to mona li-hee
    Im.. sorry and I know thats low class (uhh, yeah)
    Please sit, and tell me a little about your past
    She said, well I got courage, and I dont like porridge (uh-huh)
    Ive never been to college, but Ive got crazy knowledge (uh-huh)
    Over eighteen and my eyes are green (uh-huh)
    I wear more gold than that man on a-team (uh-huh, uh-huh)
    Trim, slim, (yeah) and Im also light skinned
    Best believe monas a virgin
    A virgin? ! honey needed a slap
    She tried to tell me shes a virgin -- with her yea wide gap
    I said, it dont matter, see, Im not picky (word)
    Let me spell my name out for you, its ricky:
    R -- ravishing
    I -- impress
    C -- courageous; so careless
    K -- for the kangols which Ive got
    That I wear everyday and
    Y -- why not?
    To fights not right that I recite and im..
    Quite polite like walter cronkite
    Well, just about then, trevor my friend came in
    He said, hey rick, dont you know playin with these snakes is a sin? !?
    He grabbed me by my shirt and pulled me right out the store
    He said, I dont want to see you playin with these lowlifes no more!
    Now come along, we have a party to attend
    With some real mature women and some more of her friends
    He hailed down a cab and he waited for a minute
    And as the cab came, he thrusted me in it!
    And as we were leavin and drivin along
    I could hear a melody as mona sang a song

    (excerpt from walk on by [d. warwick])
    If you see me walking down the street
    And I start to cry.. each time we meet..
    Walk on by.. walk on by..
    Foolish pride
    Thats all that I have left, so, let me hide
    The pain and the hurt that you gave me
    When you said goodbye..
    You walked on by..

    pure genuis rhyme making
    take care
