Essential Rap Music

Yeah that's right, you read the title right. Rap Music. Quite a bit out of character for me. I initially got the idea earlier today when my wife Jesica was listening to some old school rap tunes on iTunes. I actually thought of the idea mostly as a joke, sort of an inside joke known only to me but after getting a text message from Dave I let him in on the joke and then actually decided to go ahead and give it a try, thinking it would be a very short list. I guess the joke was on me, this list ended up being fairly long.
