Hip-hop has come a long way since its beginnings 40 years ago, and its influence has spread out on a global level. Now, another generation of rappers and producers is emerging to take hip-hop further into the next decade, and they've taken the influences of those that walked in the same shoes in the past 20 years and modernized it for what's coming next. But for each of these artists, there has been one song or album that changed their lives and made them want to have a career in hip-hop. With that in mind, XXL asked 23 rappers and producers to pinpoint the one song or album that changed their lives in a way that pushed them to think differently, to relate to their music or to enter hip-hop at all in the first place. —XXL Staff

Lifelong music fans always know that there are certain songs you hear as a kid that just stick with you, no matter the genre or artist. And hip-hop heads know that without rap's history, both in its early days and the artists who came before the genre was established, much of the foundation of the culture can be lost. But while there are plenty of deep conversations to have about where different elements of hip-hop came from and how listening habits affect generations, sometimes it's easier just to take a trip down memory lane and worry about what it all means. With that in mind, XXL spoke to 17 different rappers to find out what was on each artist's playlist as a child, from N.W.A and Jay Z to Marvin Gaye and Dana Dane. Think back. —XXL Staff

lean lyrics 40 songs
Much like molly was the buzz word for viral hits in 2012 and 2013, we are now, like it or not, firmly in the age of lean. Sure, sizzurp has been in the game for decades, emerging out of the depths of the Houston underground and firmly into the mainstream with DJ Screw, UGK, the Swishahouse factory and Three 6 Mafia. It killed Screw and Pimp C, ruined (or helped, depending on your perspective) Gucci Mane, was a consistent crutch for Soulja Boy and did an unfortunately fantastic job of nearly leading to a premature end to Lil Wayne.

Recently, the Atlanta scene has been a hotbed of the stuff, with everyone from Future to Migos to Young Thug and everyone in between rapping about their favorite double cups. After Rich Homie Quan was rushed to the hospital this week after suffering two seizures while on the set of his new music video, the overwhelming suspicion was that Quan was downing lean, too. But despite its serious and well-documented health risks, it seems that rappers can't stay away—or stop rapping about it. XXL has compiled a list of 40 songs that reference lean specifically—not purple drank, not sizzurp, but, to quote Young Thug, L-E-A-N-I-N-G/Lean lean lean lean lean lean-lean-lean. From 2 Chainz to Nas, check out the rappers dropping references to that purple stuff. —Dan Rys
