The posse cut is a time-honored tradition in rap music, and like all time-honored traditions, it's OK to fuck with them on occasion. Kanye did it with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Eminem did it with his massive, 16-minute, 20-emcee remix of "Detroit v.s. Everybody," and now Vice magazine subsidiary Noisey has taken it even further with their epic "Rap Monument." True to its name, the "Monument" stands atop verses from 36 rappers, including Raekwon, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Danny Brown, YG, Action Bronson, Young Thug, Prodigy, Nipsey Hussle, Flatbush Zombies and many, many more. The full thing comes in at a jaw-dropping 42 minutes.
Carve out some time:
Look, it's OK if you don't have a spare 42 minutes. We know you're busy. Noisey does, too, so here are some select solo cuts from "The Rap Monument":
