Some of them sound very promising when they start but then that rapper comes in with his monotonous dum-de-dum-de-dum-de-dum and ruins it.
I recall writing to you when you played the first few and declared, "There's no such thing as a good rap song". Sadly, you keep proving me right. But it's OK. I know I won't stop you playing them.
I've got a volume control to turn down the noise until the good stuff comes back. And it always does.

Anybody prepared to argue?
Can we run to a list of 'best hip hop' or is the phrase an oxymoron?
I'll open with 'La Raza' by Kid Frost
