My cousin and I were arguing about this topic. I said hip hop artist's singles needs a singing hook and a hip pop beat.. The song needs to appeal to both white and black people that's why "Who Dat" didn't chart high. It was too hip hop for the radio. He disagrees. He said Not Afraid and No Hands charted high but I told him they hand singing hooks. He doesn't believe they have singing hooks. Someone please clarify this...  :mindfk:

What makes a hip hop artist song chart high?

A hot beat, poppy hook, a good delivery/flow and a big name artist attached to the name of single.

catchy/simplistic lyrics
The lyrics don't have to be simplistic - look at Superstar, for example, or All Falls Down, Touch The Sky, etc.

Something with universal appeal, that many races would like, and something Tweens can sing all day long.

Something about a chick being the best thing in the world.

And yeah anything Eminem will chart high, always has, always will.

Catchy hook + catchy beat + lyrics that aren't about black power or things that scare us white folks = hit song.
