Eight Worst Hip Hop Collaborations

T-Pain and Taylor Swift
Last week, Cypress Hill released their single "Roll It, Light It" with  dubstep sensation Rusko,  and it wasn't pretty. This is not what hip-hop needed. With rap trending on a horrible downward spiral, we thought it would be a good time to name our eight worst hip-hop collaborations.


8. Cypress Hill and Rusko

To trendy dubstep enthusiasts: Guess what, it's not a Skrillex remix. Rusko has teamed up with South Gate's own to make the terrible sounding "Roll It, Light It." Dubstep is showing its unwanted crossover ability in this one.

7. Linkin Park and Jay Z

At the time Collision Course was released it was pretty impressive until you found out how it was made. Every hip hop/rap fan(what ever you want to be called) should be eating every dirty word said about electronic music. Yes this CD was touched up on each end, but any kid can make this album in their grungy garage.

6. Jason Aldean and Ludacris

Ludacris used his southern hospitality (pun intended) to complement Jason Aldean's cowboy-hop ditty on "Dirt Road Anthem." Awkwardness sinks in when you hear Aldean try to rap. The song gets even more awkward when you the phrase "Luda" as Ludacris enters the song. Did someone tell Ludacris that this wasn't for a movie?

5. Nelly and Tim McGraw

Thank God this song isn't playing over and over again. After releasing the mega hit "Country Grammar," it was only a matter of time before Nelly teamed up with country superstar Tim McGraw. "Over and Over" was not creative at all, with annoying Nelly "Uhs" and the phrase repeated over and over again throughout the entire song. But who can account for taste? Even with the annoying phrases and a whining McGraw, "Over and Over" shot to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard top 40 chart and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

My problem with this article...Most of these songs were hits that made money! And the Cypress Hill and Rusko collabo is pretty damn good. I think the "writer" might have a Skrillex bias....

Anthrax and public Enemy?  Seriously?  Were you like 2 when that came out? 

As one of the first and most admired rap metal songs, the Anthrax version of "Bring the Noise" is considered highly influential. It attempted to bridge the gap between hip hop and heavy metal and paved the way for other attempts to mix the two genres. It was ranked #12 on VH1's 2006 list of the 40 Greatest Metal Songs

Otherwise good list... I did like Numb by Jay z and Linkin Park, But dont entirely fault you for adding it to the list.
