“There were people who incorporated melody before me, but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.”

Our course this caused a stir among hip-hop heads (both young and old) with almost everyone referring back to Ja Rule.

It seems like a lot of the artists in the Young Money camp could use a few lessons when it comes to hip-hop history so we put together just a small list of some of our favorite songs of hip-hop artists that have combined rapping and singing-successfully!

There are really just too many artists and songs to name? What other artists and songs come to mind?

  1. I would have to side with Drake on this one. Several other rappers have tried to sing but none were very good at it. Can you imagine a whole album of Ja Rule singing!? In modern times Kanye probably comes the closest to what Drake is doing but Kanye relying on heavy alterations to his voice to sound even passable. So for the most part Drake is right but I think one person has been over looked that has already did what he’s doing… Lauryn Hill

  2. Gil Scot Heron . . . need I say more.
