Need help w/ rap songs.

Well, my fiancee and I just bought a new fifteen for our car. I am a rock fan more than anything so my experience with rap is pretty slim. I want to see how loud and hard this thing can hit at least one time so I am throwing together a CD of some of the hardest hitting "gangster" rap songs I can find. Like I said I really don't have too much experience in that field so I am hoping that someone here can help me out.

I need about 15-20 really hard hitting bad ass rap songs to push my new speaker to the limits. I figure, I got a three year warranty on the darn thing, why not? The songs can be old or new or mixed, it doesn't matter.


THANKS SO MUCH!

Was about to say, all you need is DJ Magic Mike for Bass-workouts:

"Do you like Bass?"
"Feel the Bass (Parts 1 & 2)"
"Chillin on the DL" (The bassline towards the end will kill your speakers. Watch out)

The bass on "Benzie Box" by Danger Doom off the 2005 album "The Mouse and The Mask" is pretty much the heaviest I've seen. Enjoy!

The City Sleeps - MC 900 Ft. Jesus
Television - Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprosy

Uhmm...how about no? Racist? Sorry if I use a little pride in my communication and speak correctly.

Racist? Are you serious? That has got to be the most asinine thing I have ever read.

To everyone else, thank you for the suggestions they are greatly appreciated.

The Bass on this song is MEGA:

Another Body Drops - Cypress Hill

You should also check out:

I Feel Like Dyin' - Lil Wayne
Tell Me When To Go - E40
A Millie - Lil Wayne

^It isn't Gangster rap just because the majority of the good rap is more about lyrics than Bass (Case in point: Immortal Technique)

I'd suggest checking out most of the Bay S**T as they hit pretty hard on the bass.

Not "Gangsta Rap" but I'd like to nominate Paul Revere by the Beastie Boys.

The bass is played backwards! Such a simple, but interesting trick.

Here's a link to a list of "100 Greatest Miami Bass Songs"

http://digitaldreamdoor./pages/best_dance-miami.html

Not sure if this is what you're looking for. Being a native of Miami, I remember hearing most these songs blaring out of many cars during my teen years in the late 80's. Ah, the memories.

EDIT. Link doesn't seem to work. Just google "100 Greatest Miami Bass Songs" and you'll see the site.

I use this one a lot when I want to hear my speakers bump (and I'm talking computer speakers, Klipsch albeit, so it should really bump on a good system).

You should also replace your sarcasm detector to go with the new speaker.
