Nothing can get a hip hop fan going more than 16 bars (sometimes more, sometimes less).

It is one’s ability to put rhymes together that can boggle the mind that makes them a true emcee. Whether they’re displaying a brilliant lyrical exercise, have a story to tell or outshining someone on their own track.

Making a great hip hop song is one thing. But sometimes putting together one sharp verse is all you need to earn you legendary status.

Not surprisingly, Hip Hop Universe’s list of the greatest rap verses (equipped with snippets of each) is based on lyricism, punchlines, metaphors, wordplay, delivery, cultural impact and overall awesomeness.

So get ready to pick your jaw up off the floor, as diehard fans demand more…

Hip Hop Universe worked on this video for over 60 hours, so sit back and enjoy it!!

Not many people can create an authentic list and there’s no Hip-Hop outlet out that tried to compile a list like this.

But you can’t blame them, it’s incredibly difficult to pick the best verses out of millions. And youtube blocks your video with a 100% certainty sooo…. only your boi Old Head Universe is crazy enough to create a 38 minute video of classics while having 10 guns to his face from companies like UMG, SME & WMG.

He couldn’t include songs like “Juicy”, “Twinz (Deep Cover 98)”, “Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)”, “Dumb It Down” & “Money Threes” in this video because of copyright.

He had to re-upload this video because of a worldwide block caused by Notorious B.I.G.’s song “Juicy”. There are also verses missing from these artists: JAY-Z, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Biggie, Big Pun, Kendrick Lamar, De La Soul etc.

Some songs just can’t be used on youtube, a lot of older videos got blocked because of a few seconds of fair use and the artists just named are backed by companies that are notorious for blocking videos.

What is your favorite verse of all time? Comment below.

Hip Hop Universe traveled back four decades and dug through a pile of hip hop tunes to compile a list of the greatest songs hip-hop has ever witnessed.

Picking hip-hop’s greatest songs is an incredibly difficult (and incredibly fun) undertaking, considering the various styles that have splintered the genre every way imaginable. Now 40 years old, hip-hop no more belongs to the Bronx originators than it does to today’s kids; its popularity has stretched to all corners, and the various mutations reflect that. The picks above reflect the songs that innovated, enlightened, delighted, and lasted.

These are hip-hop tracks that, with any justice, our grandchildren will have on playlists that are implanted into their brains, or whatever.

You could always buy them the CDs in the hope they listen to it some day.
