Doo Wop (That Thing)- Lauryn Hill
It was hard to choose a Lauryn Hill song because she has so many greats. Ultimately, I settled on this one because people like to debate about whether she’s a singer or a rapper. She’s both. And this song with it’s lyrical complexity and mastery proves just how great of an emcee she is. This song tells two stories, makes us want to do and be better and dance all at the same time. Genius.
