The 50 Best Storytelling Rap Songs

50. Wu-Tang Clan "M.G.M." (1997)

Album: Wu-Tang Forever
Producer: True Master
Label: Razor Sharp/Epic Street/Sony Music

Ghostface and Raekwon usually come out looking like unkillable badasses when they tell stories, but "The M.G.M." off Wu-Tang Clan's 1997 album Wu-Tang Forever finds the dynamic duo easing off the death and disorder and kicking something more lighthearted. "The M.G.M." is just Ghost and Rae people watching at a Julio Cesar Chavez fight at the MGM Grand, trading color commentary and offering razor-sharp observations about what's going on outside of the ring.
