Talib Kweli Lists His Top 100 Hip-Hop Songs

Rolling Stone recently asked Talib Kweli to list out his favorite hip-hop tunes. The Brooklyn rapper did, subsequently posting his list on Tumblr. Only "sort of in order," Kweli's top 100 includes Golden Age staples, modern classics like Jay-Z's "99 Problems," and his own 2002 single "Get By." Also included is one of this year's most overplayed songs and Lil Jon's hit "Get Low." Obviously there's lots of ground to cover in a list like this, but how do you feel about Kweli's? Have a look at it below. [RG]
