3. The Rape Over

Taking a shot at the rap industry and an indirect subliminal at its poster boy Jay-Z, Mos put an entire different perspective on the rap game over Hov’s “Takeover” instrumental. In a brutally honest and revealing lyrical tirade, the rapper/actor/activist blurts out on the chorus, “Old white men is runnin’ this rap s**t, Corporate forces runnin’ this rap s**t, a tall Israeli is runnin’ this rap s**t..” As much of a hit the song was for Jigga, there’s no doubt that Def’s spin on it breathed new life into the song and the original purpose of Hip-Hop music.
