Reactions To Billboard’s Top 5 Rap Songs Of All Time
You will never guess what was crowned to the number one rap song of all time by Billboard magazine! Wait for it…. Top 5 songs listed inside along with Twitter reactions.
When I think of the all-time best rap songs I think of Slick Rick’s Lodi Dodi, Ice Cube & Snoop Dogg’s “Ain’t Nothing But A G Thing”, Eminem’s “The Way I Am” and Missy Elliott’s “Get your Freak On” come to mind.
But apparently Billboard magazine and I live on two different Planets because they named Macklemore as the “rapper” with not one but TWO of the hottest rap songs ever!!! Really?? Yes Really!!

Billboard celebrated their 25th anniversary this week by tallying up the best rap songs ever made. According to them, Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” is #1.
He also came in at #4 with “Can’t Hold Us” feat Ray Dalton. I like both of these songs and we definatley rocked out with them inside the #JazzyDriveAt5 but the GOAT of rap music?? I think not!!
@JazzyTOnAir somebody’s smoking dope.
