Greatest Storytelling Songs in Rap/Hip-Hop

I understand "storytelling" is such a broad term in rap, but the songs must include at least some form of running narrative or scenario. I find that when a rapper has a great storytelling song, they're consistently great in this department, so expect to see many from the same artist.
