15 of the Best Rap/Hip Hop Workout Songs

15 of the Best Rap/Hip Hop Workout Songs

This is the first part of a series of articles. Each will cover a genre of music, and will compile some of the very best songs to get you fired up for your workout. Keep in mind these songs are in no particular order. We love all of them equally(for the most part).

1. We Ready by Archie Eversole

Discovered this with a buddy of mine while playing Madden one day. Needless to say this has been on our workout playlist ever since.

2. Here Comes the Boom by Nelly

Cheesy but classic. Is there anything that will get you fired up like turning up the bass in your headphones and letting this play?

3. Niggas Bleed by Notorious B.I.G.

Biggie knew what was up. Listening to this song could even make this guy feel like a real G.

4. Till I Collapse by Eminem

The feeling that listening to this song will give you is summed up in the title. As someone in the comments section put it “this song could get a care bear pumped”.

5. Play for Keeps by B.o.B.

Everybody knows those beats that get progressively more intense are always good for firing you up, and somehow this beat manages to get more intense throughout the entire song.

6. The Beast by Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne has a large collection of songs that are awesome for working out to, but this song is — well — beastly.

7. Knuck if you Buck Freestyle by Lil Wayne

Yeah yeah, we know. A lot of people aren’t exactly big fans of Lil Wayne. But give him a break. This song has some good punchlines and the beat is sick.

8. Thrift Shop by Macklemore

This song isn’t nearly as ‘intense’ as all the previous songs on this list, but let’s be real — this song gets you pumped up and feeling good. It’s good for when you’re just feeling a little out of breath and need a little kick.

9. Heisman Part 2 by Tyga

There’s two parts of this song, but we think this one quite definitely goes harder.

10. Who Gon Stop Me by Kanye West & Jay Z

Really this should just be the entire “Watch The Throne” album, but if we had to just pick one, this would be it. Who’s gonna stop you? No one but yourself.

11. Oh My God by Jay Z

Jay has a whole bunch of good workout songs like Dirt Off Your Shoulder, Moment of Clarity, No Hook. Basically all the songs from his American Gangster and Black albums(we mentioned Watch The Throne too, right?. But this song’s intensity just barely pushes it up here over some of the others.

12. Point of No Return by Immortal Technique

All of Immortal Technique’s songs are pretty — heavy, but this one’s beat is awesome, and the lyrics don’t get so heavy that it could be detract from your workout like some of his other songs might.

13. Let’s Go by Lil Jon

I think when a rap song manages to put one of the best guitar riffs ever in it and do it well, it deserves some recognition.

14. Country Shit by Ludacris

Why? Because the beat is awesome, and Ludacris is awesome. If you disagree with either of those statements then you suck.

15. The Payback/Untouchables by Tupac/James Brown (Django Mash-up)

Does anything really need to be said here?
