THE TOP 100 RAP SONGS OF ALL TIME: 4
4. Roses - Kanye West
I said it before and Ill say it again. Roses is Kanye’s best song. In Roses, Kanye raps about his (at the time) ill grandmother. What makes this song so great is the emotional delivery Kanye gives. It’s two plus minutes of Kanye creating a vivid picture of this hard time in his life. The sample on the hook fits perfectly with the type of song Roses is as well. Finally, Kanye’s last lyrics are “instead of sending flowers, we the roses”, perfectly tying up the song, stating that no matter what the family will stick together. In conclusion, Roses is one of the greatest storytelling tracks of all time and easily Kanye’s best song. •
