Spotify's RapCaviar Releases List Of The 50 Best Hip-Hop Beats

After a few other controversial hip-hop lists dropped this year, yet another debatable list is here for fans to discuss in celebration of hip-hop's 50th anniversary. Moreover, Spotify's RapCaviar just unveiled its list of the 50 greatest beats of all time in the genre. While it does lean towards more classic fare from the 1980s, 1990s, and the 2000s, there are still some modern names that made the cut. As such, at first glance, the list seems quite fair to all eras and genres. Even though it probably missed the mark in a few areas for many out there, isn't that conversation what makes a great list?

Regardless, here are the top ten beats of all time according to Spotify's RapCaviar, from number ten to number one. First up are "Get Ur Freak On" by Missy Elliott, "SICKO MODE" by Travis Scott, and "Still Trippin'" by Mike Jones. Furthermore, spots seven through five are held by "It's All About The Benjamins (Remix)" by Puff Daddy & The Family, "POWER" by Kanye West, and "A Milli" by Lil Wayne. Following that are "Who Shot Ya?" by Biggie Smalls, "Grindin'" by Clipse, and "Shook Ones, Pt. II" by Mobb Deep.

Spotify & RapCaviar's List Of Hip-Hop's Best Beats Of All Time

Finally, the greatest hip-hop beat of all time (according to Spotify's RapCaviar) is "Still D.R.E." by Dr. Dre. What's more is that the legendary producer also got the top spot on Rolling Stone's list of the best West Coast rap songs. In both cases, it's quite understandable, although Rolling Stone picked "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang" over "Still D.R.E." That key line alone is one of the most iconic melodies and intros in the whole genre, but we're sure that you have a better number one pick in the comments.

Meanwhile, other names included in this list are Kendrick Lamar, Wu-Tang Clan, Future, Shawty Lo, Chief Keef, and many more. Some of the standout beats that missed out on the top ten are "Paid In Full" by Eric B. and Rakim, "Cell Therapy" by Goodie Mob, and "Ruff Ryders' Anthem" by DMX. You can check out the full list by Spotify's RapCaviar in the tweet above or in the via link below. After you take a peep, let us know in the comments what beats deserve higher placement or missed out altogether. As always, keep checking in with HNHH for the latest news, updates, and conversations in hip-hop culture.
