  1. yeahyeah

  2. jojo

    yea i disagree with alot Fat joe i wont tell ranked way too high hot song but not better then half the songs after it and anything ron brows doesnt belong on the list…get ur on style stop biting..harlems hip hop game is over…Wack…

  3. mad

    im prolly weird but i never even heard dun dun by shawty lo until i just looked it up on youtube right now…

  4. jusme

    I don’t think either of the Shawty Lo tracks should be on there…that’s just me.

  5. Galil ( PINOY Baby)

    g-unit shouldn’t be mentioned on that list.

  6. Catie

    “Game’s Pain” should in the top 5 and Fat Joe’s song shouldn’t be on that list at all.


    i think fat joe and deff shawty lo shouldnt b on this list. i also think M.I.A. shouldnt cuz i dont feel she is a hip-hop artist, dont get me wrong shes still hot. i really think missys ching-a-ling and flo-ridas low or elevator should b on the list. they were hot tracks
