    wayne's discography is so diverse and expansive that it's difficult to compile such a short list that covers everything but i tried anyway (shouts out @Slyk for combing through his itunes and helping me lol)

    also: I did not give it this title because I wasn't necessarily writing for best so much as diverse (though at times they overlap), but you know clickbait n all

    edit: here's another article I never posted:

    Speaking of lists: I don't think I ever posted it here but a few months back I also made a list that shows the history of rap songs that evoke country/cowboy culture and sound (this was b4 billy ray even hopped on old town road). This one took me a long time to narrow down and even then there are some obvious ones I should have put on (I cut bubba sparxx for some reason and I cut yelawolf because he sucks and I didn't want to listen to yelawolf albums to find the best example to use).

    Yeah its really good. He made a lot of amazing music later in his career as well but this, especially his voice in that era, is my favorite Wayne music.

    Oof I wish I'd included this, totally forgot about this song and I wanted a couple more from earlier in his career. Good call!

    Lists are always so hard because you're NEVER gonna be able to include everything.

    Yeah, I told them about the error but they never fixed it :emoji_slight_frown:

    I figure a bloggy site like this moves so fast that they don't really have the manpower to fix errors in older articles, cuz once they're off the front page/the tweet of the article gets buried it's not getting a ton of traffic anymore anyway
