1. #MFDoomsday: 100 Rap Song Titles About (Or At Least Coulda Been About) the RAPture.

    RAPocalypse_LEADART

    To paraphrase the great Pete Rock, this weekend should've been time to "get wrek with the Creator." Instead it was time to get busy... tweeting. What began as a late Friday afternoon tweet about listening to the Jungle Brothers "In Days 2 Come" in anticipation of Saturday's supposed Doomsday begat an impromptu, 4 hour, end-of-the-world rap barbeque with our Twitter followers bringin' the special sauce. (Hip Hop Hooray for crowdsourcing!) The result of this communal brainstorm: 100 rap song titles applicable to the Rapture. We haven't experienced so much rap nerding-out since the basement dungeon days of Book of Rap Lists . (Now THAT was a Good Book. Thank you Black Jesus.)

      Mr. Lif also had a one-two punch of apocalypse tracks at the end of "I Phantom:" "Earthcrusher" and "Post Mortem" with Jean Grae, El-P, Insight and Akrobatik helping out.

      Good call. There's plenty of good ones we forgot. Guess we'll save them for the next Apocalypse. (Apocalypse 2, Electric Boogaloo).
