Top 10 Best Hip Hop Collaborations of All TimeTop 10 Best Hip Hop Collaborations of All Time
Remember the days when collaborations were to put in some serious work and not just simply expand the fan base or ensure the hottest, new, multi-platinum selling artist did your hook? Some of the hottest Hip-Hop tracks ever put forth were due in part of these collaborations. It’s all good hearing one artist on a track if they are talented, but sometimes the fans love to hear a couple of their favorite rappers working together. So we have put together a list of 10 of the best Hip Hop Collaborations of all time. Just to set the record straight, this is my Top 10 so you won’t find a Justin Bieber/ Usher or Nelly and that country dude on this list.
Survival Skills – Buckshot & KRS-One is the collaborative album from MC KRS-One and Buckshot. The album was released on September 15, 2009 on Duck Down Records. It is the 18th album for KRS-One, and the fourth for Buckshot. The duo tries to elicit all the things that are wrong about Hip-Hop…proving that the most important Survival Skills are talent and dedication to craft. Up and comers should take notice.”
All That I Got Is You – Ghostface & Mary J. Blige is the second single by Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah from his solo debut album Ironman. The song features R&B songstress Mary J. Blige and an outro which has Popa Wu giving teachings. It contains a sample of “Maybe Tomorrow” by The Jackson 5 as well as audio clips from the cult film The Education of Sonny Carson. Ghostface wrote the song as a tribute to his mother, with lyrics that both depict the harsh life the two struggled through together during his childhood and praise her ability to raise him even in their downtrodden state.
Still Not A Player – Big Pun & Joe is a hip-hop song, written and performed by Puerto Rican-American rapper Big Punisher (also known as Big Pun), produced by Knobody and featuring singer Joe. It was featured on his 1998 debut album Capital Punishment. The song is a remix of Big Pun’s previous single “I’m Not a Player” and an interpolation of Joe’s “Don’t Wanna Be a Player”.
