    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.

    "Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps." Chuck D. -Fight the Power
    This song is a Classic and definitely should be No.1. I'm so glad they didn't put something completely wack up there.

    This... Is REAL HIP HOP!

    Songs that NEED to be in.

    Rise N Shine



    "Holdin my mike like The Staff of RA..."

    Self Destruction



    "I neva eva ran from the Ku Klux Klan and I shouldn't have to run from a Black Man, cause that's..."

    Stakes is High



    "Sicka Swole Head Rappas wit dey Sickenin Raps!"

    This was put out 12 years ago and the Lyrics are more relevant now than they were then!

    Brings Back Memories

    I was deemed a racist, militant, and even investigated in the military because I played Public Enemy, Icecube, and other groups that spoke out against the system we lived and still live in. I believe that these types of songs/msg's should have been the top 25 and I wish they were played daily on the radio.
