Year-end lists are always exciting, but Questlove of the Roots decided it was also time for him to unleash his 50 favorite hip-hop songs of all time. Teaming up with Roling Stone, the famed drummer goes through some of rap’s most important records, many of which you will most certainly agree with him on. Not only does he list the songs, but he also provides in-depth written explanations for each of the tracks. Something that must have been incredibly time consuming. We are happy he did it, though, as this list provides a ton of insight and perspective from such a powerful force in hip-hop.
Head over to Rolling Stone to check out the full list.
