Introducing Someone To Hip-Hop...

If a friend of yours had never listened to hip-hop before and asked you to make him a CD with 15 songs to get him into the genre, what 15 songs would you use?

Curious to see the different answers.

Edit: You can't use multiple songs by one artist (they can be features though just not their own songs), no full albums.
