Macklemore just keeps on winning. After snagging the Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammy Awards, the Seattle rapper has another reason to celebrate. His song ‘Thrift Shop’ tops Billboard’s list of 100 hottest rap songs of all-time, beating out others from the likes of Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and more.

Billboard published the list of best-charting rap songs since 1989 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Hot Rap Songs chart. Interestingly, Macklemore has two songs in the top 10 with the chart-topping ‘Thrift Shop’ and ‘Can’t Hold Us’ at No. 4.

The remaining top five includes 69 Boyz’s ‘Tootsee Roll’ at No. 2, Missy Elliott‘s ‘Hot Boyz’ coming in at No. 3 and No. 5 is ‘Expression’ by Salt-N-Pepa.

Big names like Kanye West and Jay Z bow in much later at No. 18 with their ‘Watch the Throne’ smash ‘N—-s in Paris.’ So what song
