This is the official series looking at the Top 50 Most Popular Hip-hop songs of each decade. This list was made by using The songs Billboard Hot 100 success, RATHER then using the Hot hip-hop/R&B chart as that has many skewed rankings and I don't think justifies the songs rank as well. The songs included are any songs that include Hip-Hop as one of their two main genres. Some songs may be a little more of a Pop style, others may have more of an R&B style, but all songs fall under the categroy of a hip-hop song. If they did not they were not inlcuded in the list.
A song about how people, specifically Black Men are seen purely based on their color. Manblack challenges listeners to see others as Men and Women first, to see them for their humanity... Manblack by O-Naje prod. by Grizzly Beatz mixed by Modern Future in Oak, CA
Manblack is my attempt to put more value on the human being than in the color. America is a very race oriented society, everything is that black guy or the white guy over there, the Mexican guy over there, we become defined by our race or color, not by our humanity. So hence I flip the word BlackMan putting the Man before Black or the color.
My man GrizzlyBeatz out of Vallejo provide the beat. Soon as I heard it I knew it was going to be a powerful song. Shot out to him for lacing me once again, he also did my record "Familiar Faces" which you can listen to here to see the range....
