Rap's Greatest Posse Cuts

List RulesBest rap songs that feature three or more lyricists.

Rap is typically a very dog-eat-dog musical genre. Whether it's on wax, in the streets, and, recently, over such internet outlets as Twitter.com, rappers are prone to clash with one another. When hip-hop's brightest stars are on the same page, however, hit music ensues. When three or more MCs come together, it indicates some form of unity within the genre. These days, deejays (particularly, one who goes by the name of Khaled) have made hip-hop fantasy dream teams come to life. On this list, we true hip-hop fans rank and debate the greatest hip-hop posse cuts of all time, featuring hip-hop's most lyrical heavyweights from all different walks of life. Some of these jams are familiar and resonates with the younger generation of fans, while others are forgotten gems, but are otherwise noteworthy collaborations that made a mark on the genre. Please vote for the sake of unity, or lack there of, in rap and hip-hop.

    I Shot Ya (remix)

    Video: YouTube
    Way past his teenage fame, LL Cool J turned out to be one of the few rappers from the '80s to change and progress with the edgier hip-hop scene of the '90s. As one of the illest cuts from 1995's Mr. Smith LP, LL found himself surrounded by the best rookie talent on the East Coast, Keith Murray, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep), Fat Joe, and Foxy Brown. But Papa Cool J outshined them all, proving that he can roll with the best of them and the rest of them.

    Not Tonight (remix)

    Video: YouTube
    Nicki Minaj take notes. Long before Minaj would go on to rule the hip-hop world in the 2010's, Lil' Kim crafted perhaps the best all-female posse cut ever, with the help of Angie Marinez, Left Eye, Da Brat, and Missy Elliott to set this track on fire. The result? This Grammy nominated tune that showcases the unity with women in hip-hop.

    We Takin’ Over

    Exactly how many rappers were on this track? So many versions featuring so many lyricists, there was no real star on that song, and nobody particularly stole the show. One thing was certain, no matter where you were, Khaled was taking over...one city at a time.
