27 Rap Songs That Will Motivate You to Win

Puff Daddy f/ The Notorious B.I.G. & Busta Rhymes "Victory" (1997)

Album: No Way Out
Producer: The Hitmen

Biggie's appearance on "Victory" is one of the best career finishes in rap history. If the aggressive tone and impeccable delivery doesn't stir something up inside, the instant quotables will. The Black Frank White performs like Mike (all three of them), makes the wildest threats, and presents himself as "The Underboss of this Holocaust." It's the type of legendary shit that's contagious, which is probably why Diddy also spit some of the greatest rhymes of his life.

"Victory" is also crucial by its instrumental alone. That Rocky sample is the very sound of triumph. Busta Rhymes also appears at the peak of his dreadlocked-madness on the hook. "Amped" isn't even the word to describe the feeling after listening to the whole thing.
