Eminem's New Track Goes "Old School," We Give You The Best Old School Jams To Celebrate
4. N.W.A., "Straight Outta Compton"
Eazy E, Dr Dre and Ice Cube all had a hand in this song -- whether producing it or rapping on it -- and Gwyneth Paltrow can apparently also rap the entire song, so that should adequately sum up how mainstream N.W.A.'s music has become.
3. Geto Boys, "Mind Is Playing Tricks On Me"
It's one of the best hip-hop songs to emerge from the '90s, and it's all about how mind-fucking things like hallucinations and paranoia can be, so it's pretty rad. Oh, and not to mention the whole -- Willie D is on this track -- thing, which only makes it better.
2. Public Enemy, "Fight The Power"
It's a song about societal injustices that samples James Brown and was somehow unlike anything that had been heard before, despite the heavy-handed sampling on the song. It's pissed off, defiant, and just fucking right.
