Sup Travellers?! What's your favorite rap song of all time? That's probably a really tough question. I personally can't answer that because there are so many good rap songs out there that it's almost impossible for me to choose my favorite. 50 Cent has a lot of good ones, so does Drake Eminem, Lil Wayne and Biggie. But according to Billboard, the biggest rap song of all time is Thrift Shop by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

I kind of understand why Thrift Shop is considered the biggest because in terms of numbers, Thrift Shop is clearly on top. So if we're playing the numbers game then Thrift Shop is the biggest. In terms of quality, I'm not really sure if Thrift Shop could suffice. There are a lot of quality rap songs out there that could far outshine Thrift Shop, if you ask me. Anyway, the full list was published on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs of all time chart. It's a top 100 list but here is the top 10:
