38. A Tribe Called Quest "Excursions" (1991)
Producer: A Tribe Called Quest
Album: The Low End Theory
Possibly the greatest bass line, and definitely the best opening track from any rap album, ever. With a new meandering, talky style to match the pulsating rhythms, Q-Tip cements himself as a rapper and producer of prominence and begins curating the epic album that is The Low End Theory.
