11. A Tribe Called Quest f/ Leaders of the New School "Scenario" (1992)
Murderer: Busta Rhymes
Album: The Low End Theory Label: Jive/RCA Records Producer: A Tribe Called Quest Cold Cases: N/A
Not only was this song one of the best posse cuts in hip-hop history, but it single-handedly launched Busta Rhymes' solo career. Before stealing the show on "Scenario," the rambunctious young Long Island MC was just the hypest member of Leaders of the New School. With the fuse already ignited by the in-fighting amongst the members of LONS, this feature proved to be the BOOM! from the cannon. Who doesn't know this verse by heart? It's embedded in our mentals whether we like it or not—and after all these years it remains Busta's best 16 ever.
