Rolling Stone recently asked Talib Kweli to list his 100 favorite hip hop songs of all time. For the most part, this list is what you would expect.. whole bunch of 2pac, Hov, Tribe, Rakim, Wu Tang, Nas, etc. And then there’s “Get Low” by Lil Jon. Hmm. Anyway, here are his picks, in what he says “is sort of in order”.

Follow The Leader- Eric B and Rakim
