Comment by ieDANNY909 on May 31, 2011 at 1:00am
as far as the songs that they had on the list, they did a good job. but the order they were in was all fukked up. i understand its really hard to try to put them from worst to best, but they had woo ha and it aint no fun in the 200's. thats crazy. its all about the benjamins as #2? wow
Comment by Cashflow on May 31, 2011 at 12:30am
Damn that's a f****** solid a** list. A lot of my favorites are on this s***. XXL schooled n***** on this. 90s had some of the best music IMHO.
Comment by Basile Amir on May 30, 2011 at 11:19pm
first of all if you were actually born in the 90s then you are to young to be leaving any comments
Comment by Dana Wade on May 30, 2011 at 3:06pm

Comment by Munis on May 30, 2011 at 1:13pm
Eazy E The Real OG!!! F*** Dre!!! best line ever " All Of The Sudden Dr Dre Is The G Thang, But On His Old Album Cover He Was A SHE Thang"
Comment by A'SET on May 30, 2011 at 1:08pm
Nas- Nas is Like
Rakim-" I be on the Mic".
Comment by James on May 30, 2011 at 1:01pm
Rap is not pop.. if you call it that then stop
Comment by A'SET on May 30, 2011 at 1:00pm
The songs on the list are hot, but the numbers they fall at Ima have to debate on that. Lost Boys should be in the top 20,
Lost Boyz- "Music Makes me High", "lifestyle of the rich and shameless"
Queen Pen "Party aint a Party"
Foxy- "get you home tonight"
kim- Fake ones
Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz "-Dejavu"
Wutang- ''So Simple"
Red and Meth-"How High"
missy-"Sock it to me"
Biggy- "Party and b*******''
How the f*** Bling Bling in the top 20?
