    2. Dungen – Du Ska Inte Tro Alt Det Ordnar Sig

    1. J Dilla – the $

    by the way i still haven’t heard “the Cool” or that intl players anthem joint, so maybe they deserve a spot or whatever.

    By the way I found this through some links on your blog and sh*t, pretty super:

  4. NOYCE! That fool Benner killed it in ’07. You cheated by putting non-rap joints on your list. I wish I could’ve done that (shouts to Feist, Spoon, and them Yeah Yeahs). Just teasing. Thanks for contributing!

  5. bp = cheater. but good call on the dilla.

  6. Just fyi rezmatic, Mos Def “Travellin’ Man” is a song off the second DJ Honda album (1998):

    Check track 19.

    And yes, this proves that I’m a way bigger hip-hop dork than you.

  7. shots fired…

  8. ouch zw. I’m all for accuracy, but I thought this was a “nice” blog. Welcome to Touch, though.

  9. nah son, never that. first i heard it was off the ‘mos definite’ album — a bunch of unreleased tracks.

    but i stand corrected. dj honda had a dope song with jeru the damaja. i think it was on the same album with m.o.p. and gravediggaz.

    shit, the first gravediggaz album should’ve cracked my top 25.

  10. HAHAHA. I meant nothing by it! Just thought I’d drop a little knowledge.

    And rezmatic, I’m all the way down with Gravediggaz being in the top 25. I might even say top 15.


  11. word up on that Six Feet Deep…
