Notorious BIG's 'Juicy' named greatest hip-hop song of all time in BBC poll

The Notorious BIG's Juicy has been named the greatest hip-hop song of all time in a poll for BBC Music.
 
A rags-to-riches tale loosely based on his own childhood beat songs by Nas and Kanye West to claim the top spot.
 
Public Enemy's Fight The Power took second place while third place went to Mobb Deep's menacing Shook Ones (Part II).
 
The 25-strong list is short on crowd-pleasers, concentrating instead on heavyweight, credible tracks that moved rap forward. 
 
There's no mention of Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Lil Kim and Missy Elliott, however, the male dominated list also includes Queen Latifah and Lauryn Hill representing women. 
 
Critics and artistes based in 16 countries participated in the poll, including hip-hop legends like Slick Rick and Common going through the more than 280 tracks that were nominated.
