Biggie Smalls’ ‘Juicy’ Rated #1 Rap Track of All-Time

Biggie Small’s hit ‘Juicy’ was voted the greatest rap track of All-Time in a new BBC Music poll. The poll consisted of “experts.” A quick glance through poll participants should ease concerns that any weirdos partook in the questionnaire.

The semi-autobiographical track about Biggie’s rise from rags to riches beat out other rap tracks including those from Tupac, Jay-Z, Outkast, Ice Cube, Nas, Scarface & Mobb Deep.

Veteran Chicago emcee Common, who was on the panel of more than 100 “experts” voting, explained to the BBC: “This song defines the American dream from any kid’s perspective.”

Public Enemy’s revolutionary rap track ‘Fight the Power’ landed in second place, with Mobb Deep’s timeless track ‘Shook Ones’ coming in third place.

Rounding out the Top 5 were #4 ‘The Message’ by Grandmaster Flash and Dr. Dre’s ‘Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang.’

Outkast, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Wu-Tang Clan, Tupac Shakur, and Nas are among the other artists with raps on the Top 25 list.
