VH1 crowns 'Fight the Power' as best hip-hop song
09/24/2008 9:00 AM, AP

Let the debates begin: VH1 has compiled its list of the 100 greatest hip-hop songs, and Public Enemy's black power anthem "Fight the Power" tops the list.

The cable channel will count down its list in series of shows starting Monday. At No. 2 is the Sugar Hill Gang's groundbreaking song, "Rapper's Delight," followed by Dr. Dre's "Nuthin but a 'G' Thang" at No. 3. Run-D.M.C.'s "Walk This Way" with Aerosmith and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five's "The Message" round out the top five.

Salt 'N Pepa was the only female act in the top 10, with their early hit "Push It." Two of rap's biggest names Jay-Z and Eminem didn't make the top 10, though they are in the top 20.

Other acts on the list include the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Biz Markie, Black Sheep and J.J. Fad.

The list comes as VH1 prepares to honor the pioneers in rap once again as part of its annual Hip-Hop Honors show, which this year celebrates Slick Rick, De La Soul, Cypress Hill, Naughty by Nature and Too Short. That show airs Oct. 6.

It isn't. It is #4.

Agree... but I think this list is more of a popularity contest. I also agree with TNLakersFanInLA, 'Walk This Way' is too high...

maybe. But that was the first ever rap/rock song I've ever heard in my life. I don't think there was any before then. It was pretty groundbreaking. Then again, I'm pretty sure this list is limited ONLY to hip hop songs.

I would consider Anthrax's I'm The Man the first... Walk This Way by Run DMC is a cover....

Some might say the Beastie might have been first with No Sleep To Brooklyn.

Walk this Way might have done as much as any other song to bring about the mainstream credibility of rap. Whether that's a good or bad thing is a subjective call, but you can't deny the significance of the song.

I can agree with that... which brings me back to my original statement, this is a popularity contest more than anything...

T.R.O.Y. by Pete Rock & CL Smooth is number 90... behind the likes of JJ Fad and Tone Loc.. are you kidding me.... That right there makes this list

Doug E. Fresh & the Get Fresh Crew - "The Show" is number 50 but MC Hammer - "U Can't Touch This" is 26

Salt N Pepa is in the Top 10, but the first mention of ATCQ is number 30? Huh?

no MC EIHT "Streiht Up Menace?" And "Regulate" can't be 98 on that list ....... LOL

if they really did the 100 greatest hip hop songs, I think all the top artist would have more than one on this list.
