Dr Dre's “Nothin’ But A G Thang" # 1 On Their List Of Top 250 Hip Hop Songs Of The 90's, ranked by XXL

In an upcoming special issue XXL will take on the tough task of ranking the top 250 rap songs of the 90’s.

Dr Dre’s “Nothin’ But A G Thang” which featured Snoop Dogg takes the # 1 spot. Diddy’s “All About The Benjamins” remix with it’s all star line up of Notorious B.I.G., The Lox and Lil Kim come in at # 2.

Other songs that made the list according to MTV include 2Pac’s “California Love” (# 7), Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s “They Reminisce Over You” (# 10), Ice Cube’s “No Vaseline” (# 58), andScarface’s “I Never Seen A Man Die” (# 99).

The criteria used to rank the songs is not known, but it will be interesting to see where songs likeMobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Part II” (which should have made the cut), rank up against more radio friendly songs like MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” (which did make the list at # 115).


The one thing we can all agree on is that there are bound to be a lot of disagreements among fans regarding the rankings.

We’ll find out May 24 when the issue hits newsstands.
