The 50 Greatest Chicago Rap Songs

#44. Common f/ Kanye West "Southside"

Year: 2007
Produced By: Kanye West
Album: Finding Forever
Label: G.O.O.D. Music/Geffen

Fresh off their success on Rash's comeback album, Be, 'Ye and Com joined forces again for "Southside," a dedication to the side of town south of the Loop. Com sounded reinvigorated, spitting, "The broads, the cars, the Half Moons, the Stars/I'm like Jeff Fort the way I get behind bars." Filled with Chi-Town lit, "Southside" included shout-outs and name-drops to many of the Chi's finest, including PsychoDrama and Crucial Conflict, who, ironically, are from the Westside.
