Ask a Rapper: Big Boss E's Favorite Boss Songs

The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -- lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good -- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? E-mail

This Week's Rapper: Big Boss E

This Week's Prompt: Since you're the boss, and since "boss" has become such an entrenched colloquialism in the rap lexicon, answer us this: What are the six best boss-themed rap songs? Go.

6. Big Pun, "Not a Player"

Big Boss E: Because I'm really not a player, I just crush a lot.

5. DJ Quik, "Sweet Black Pussy"


*Um, yep.

4. Master P, "Da Last Don"

BBE: I am the last Don of Houston. No one has done what I have done thus far being a independent artist.

3. Nas, "If I Ruled the World"

BBE: I feel that song gives me a goal to rule the world at some point. Not just musically, but the world as in my craft and day-to-day life.

2. Fat Pat, "Ghetto Dreams"

BBE: Because I'm currently living a dream, a ghetto dream. Having my face and music on MTV and Internet makes me feel good, but I have more work to do.

1. Frank Sinatra, "My Way"


Everything I do is my way. Going thru the trials and tribulations of an independent artist, I have tried and failed but also succeeded in different avenues. I have learned to do things my way.
