Poll: Is ‘Thrift Shop’ the Hottest Rap Song Ever?

Macklemore apologizes to Kendrick Lamar after winning Grammy for best rap album.

Diehard rap fans were understandably disappointed when Macklemore & Ryan Lewis robbed Kendrick Lamar of Best Rap Album at the Grammys earlier this year.

Now, Billboard appears to be pouring salt into an open wound.

In honor of the music magazine’s Hot Rap Songs chart’s 25th anniversary, the editors counted down the 100 hottest rap songs of all time. Coming in at number one? None other than Macklemore’s infamous “Thrift Shop.”

Now, to be perfectly honest, I actually quite like this song and I downloaded it to my iPod (feel free to judge). But even I know it doesn’t deserve the top spot.

I get that the list is based on “actual performance on the weekly Hot Rap Songs chart.” And there’s no denying “Thrift Shop” dominated the airwaves last year, but it’s a far cry from hottest rap song ever.

Take our poll and let us know your pick for the best rap song of all time.
