The 100 Best Kanye West Songs

88. Common f/ Kanye West "Southside" (2007)

Album: Finding Forever
Producer: Kanye West
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 part of Chicago where both artists were raised. Com sounded reinvigorated, spitting, "The broads, the cars, the Half Moons, the Stars/I'm like Jeff Fort the way I get behind bars." Filledwith Chi-Town gang lore, "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. The song was all Chi-Town, though. Common and Ye went crazy on this one.
