If You Still Know All The Lyrics To These 5 Rap Songs, You're A True 90's Kid... Who Is Getting Old

By  January 30, 2016

We've all heard it at least once from either our parents or teachers before: "Why you so smart can memorise lyrics but cannot memorise your social studies/history/geography notes HUH???" (Errr, 'cher, maybe if your classes were actually as interesting and catchy as Eminem's songs, I would have been able to pass my exams with flying colours lor...)

The early 2000s was a great time for rap and as a primary school kid then, I was really, really into the genre. Below are five of my all-time favourite rap music from the past decade. I could even adapt that famous Alan Rickman (RIP Sir) quote: "When I'm 80 years old and sitting in my rocking chair, I'll be rapping along to Where Is The Love. And my family will say to me, 'After all this time?' And I will say, 'Always.'" If you know the lyrics to all of them, you and I could probably be BFFs (please be my friend, we can have rap battles all the time). 

However, as awesome and as it may feel and as proud as I may be of myself to have these lyrics still at my finger tips, I can't help but feel like I'm turning into an old fart! Why? Because -REALITY CHECK- the following tracks were released more than 10 years ago

 

1. Where Is The Love? - The Black Eyed Peas (2003)

 

2. Hey Ya! - Outkast (2003)

 

3. Mockingbird - Eminem (2005)

 

4. Numb/Encore - Linkin Park feat. Jay-Z (2004)

 

5. Get Back - Ludacris (2004)

Do you dare take up the rap challenge of these songs against me? Or are there any other rap music that you strongly feel should be added to this list? Tweet us!
