14. A Tribe Called Quest "8 Million Stories" (1993)
Album: Midnight Marauders
Producer: Skeff Anselm

Sometimes depression is just about the simple losses—not death, disease, or drug addiction—and "8 Million Stories" nails that frustration. Phife Dawg weaves a narrative that involves the store not having what he wants, his sports team not performing up to par, his car getting broken into, and other daily mishaps. Its relatable, and ultimately, just as relevant of a plight.
