10. Kanye West feat. Consequence and GLC – Spaceship


Ye talking about the time before he was famous will always sound funny now that he’s a superstar. The story of his job before music is pretty cool and the hook is great.

9. Talib Kweli Feat. Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z, and Mos Def – Get By Remix

Get By Remix

The epitome of the line “Made the beat then murdered it, Casey Anthony.”

8. Kanye West feat. Consequence and Cam’ron – Gone


The first two verses are great in their own right, but Kanye’s last verse is the best he’s ever spit in my opinion.

7. Pusha T feat. Kanye West – New God Flow

New God Flow

Kanye delivered his long sprawling verse full of knowledge, ignorance and quotables at the end of a couple great Pusha T verses on this track. What more can you ask for?

6. Kanye West – Dark Fantasy

Dark Fantasy

This song sets the mood for what is arguably Kanye’s best album. Can we get much higher?

5. Kanye West feat. Syleena Johnson – All Falls Down

All Falls Down

The first Kanye song I ever liked. Sounds brand new to this day.

4. Kanye West – Can’t Tell Me Nothing

Can’t Tell Me Nothing

Kanye’s first real street anthem and one of the catchiest songs I’ve ever heard.

3. Kanye West feat. Jamie Foxx – Gold Digger

Gold Digger

Kanye took his own style of soul sampling and flipped it on it’s head here. The most memorable song from Kanye’s early catalog.

2. Kanye West – Runaway


A really unorthodox song with an amazingly creative and innovative video, along with a dope Pusha T feature? This is Kanye’s version of an apology and it’s genuis.

1. Kanye West – Power


This song sums up everything Kanye is about. It really is THE Kanye West song of all Kanye West songs.
