Hip Hop's Best Beats

No particular order…

Queen Latifah- The DJ’s

Total and Biggie - Can’t You See

Busta Rhymes - Fire

These are just off the top of my head.

if we’re just talking about beats

Lil Kim - Drugs

Shawty LO - Dey Know

Diplomats - Dipset Anthem

Game - Put You On Game

Mass Appeal-Gang Starr

Worst comes to worst- Dilated Peoples

93 til Infinity- Souls of Mischief

Even though they’re not technically “new” beats, i always thought that sampled version of lets dance by david bowie, the scarface theme, and mobb deep’s version of “she blinded me with science” were awesome beats to rap too.


oh yeah, the trigger man beat is also pretty sweet. [media=youtube]2MeTlc6x_94[/media] lots of awesome remixes of that one.


Hell most of Twista’s old tracks were dope as hell.





I’m a big DJ Premier fan so pretty much anything by him


One of my favorite Preemo beats



[media=youtube]BIOevH7X58w[/media] producer only not rapper… but you just said hip hop beats didnt really specify whether they only count if they’ve been rapped over before

I know more but dont feel like searching for decent quality instrumentals… these are some of favorites though

EDIT: Forgot to add Xplosive by dre


Pete Rock & CL Smooth - T.R.O.Y. (They Reminisce Over You)

Scarface - My Block
