    The problem is that in my original post I used the word "greatest" when I probably should have put "biggest", tbh.

    Hahaha I've been exposed to a lot of Hip Hop, but that's not the point. In fact, it is exactly the opposite. I'm talking about the song being so huge that even a person that doesn't know about hip hop, knows the song and enjoys it.

    I'm not talking subjectivities here, just pure raw mass appeal and notoriety.
    No, you’re being purely subjective. The song was all over the place and in a movie trailer when you were probably in elementary school.

    Obviously I have hundreds of songs I prefer over Gangsta's paradise, but what I mean is I don't think there are many (if any) more iconic hip hop songs than that one. What would you consider a more iconic Hip Hop song globally than Gangsta's paradise?

    I like both GP and FV but they pretty much tagged a rap onto already great songs. Nothing wrong with that; just seems way more dependent on the source material than more sample-based stuff.

    Coolio did a good job of staying in the public consciousness over the years. RIP.

    I don't feel like Hey yeah is as globally recognised as Gangsta's Paradise. GP is among the most well known songs in history, every generation alive knows that song from your great grandmother to your grandchildren. It is in the same level as songs like Bohemian Rhapsody and Thriller. There's not a person on Earth who doesn't know the song.
    I guarantee you there is. My kid (22 years old) knows Bohemian Rhapsody and Thriller (and that's a weird choice btw). But I doubt Gantsta's Paradise registers with her. I will check though.

    They're not matted, they're layered. She knows this. She's just being a vengeful .

    Yeah I can think of a dozen, but he has obviously not been exposed to as much hip hop as someone from the US. A lot of people know the original the beat is taken from by Lakeside. I will just go with Rappers Delight for now.
    For sure. You could also throw The Message in there.

    Nah, there's no chance those songs are even half as known as GP globally.

    Ask your daughter if you want but, according to this sutdy, it is the most recognised rap tune of the 90's (the so called golden era of hip hop) by the newer generations.

    That's an interesting study. I'd like to know more about the methodology of how they pick the songs to play on the quiz and if it's equally distributed among the possible songs.

    Well if pudding.cool says it, it must be fact.

    But if we’re playing this “biggest globally” game, In Da Club is the right answer.

    G Thang is the most culturally influential song in the history of rap. Comparing it to Gangstas Paradise is like comparing Smells Like Teen Spirit to Tomorrow by Silverchair

    If I play G Thang on a gathering in my country, about 10% of the people will know that song. If I play GP, everybody knows that song. Yall don't have much of an idea about which Hip Hop songs are popular outside the US, tbh.

    LOL. I'm not sure you're making a positive point about Argentina.

    At least you have Manu which goes a long way here.

    It's not just Argentina, brother. Pretty much everywhere in the World, except the US.
