Complex recently came out with a list of their top 100 picks for the best New York City rap songs.

New York—and the Bronx specifically—is the birthplace of hip-hop. Which means New York City and hip-hop are forever intertwined. […] So it should come as no surprise that all five of its boroughs have produced many of rap’s greatest talents. Slick Rick, KRS-One, and Big Pun all hail from the Bronx. Big Daddy Kane, the Notorious B.I.G., and Jay Z are all from Brooklyn. Nas, LL Cool J, and 50 Cent rep Queens. Staten Island’s main contributions come from one camp but remain significant with Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon. Even Manhattan has its own Harlem World fresh with stars like Kool Moe Dee, Diddy, and Cam’ron.

Check out the full list to see if your favorites made the cut.
