1. A Tribe Called Quest f/ Leaders of the New School "Scenario" (1991)
Producer: A Tribe Called Quest
Album: The Low End Theory
Face it, you know every word to this song and can recite it in a coma backwards. You've played it a million times in your lifetime. Whenever you purchase a new iPod, you make sure to sync at least one playlist that features it. You've debated with your friends over whether Phife, Dinco, or Busta had the best verse. When this song comes on at a bar or a house party you forget that you're an adult and turn right back into an adolescent rap nerd. You have pretended at some point that you could die happily never hearing "Scenario" again, but here you are again, rapping along to it while you read this blurb. "Oblighetto" plus Jimi Hendrix drums equals win.
