The 25 Best Ludacris Songs

12. Nas f/ Jadakiss and Ludacris "Made You Look (Remix)" (2003)


Producer: Salaam Remi
Album: N/A

One of Nas' most successful and memorable tracks, "Made You Look" from 2002's God's Son was equal parts chart topper and respectable banger. But the "Made You Look" remix wasn't just a boon for the song, but also, a crucial notch on Luda's belt, as he arrives on it with a more raw form of wordplay: That aggressive flow, punctuated by pulls from his typically smartassed body of reference: "They shootin!/ Look in the barrel/Then he made the front page of the Miami Herald/or Chi-Tribune, nozzles with silent doom, we in that A-Town Journal-list, filed with goons." The bars further illustrated that this southern rapper was about more than just quick one-liners, but a style of rap that should be taken seriously as he views himself: At brass tacks, one capable of delivering a worthy standout verse on a track with two very heavy hitters.Tannis Spencer
