Yes, we know, Drake songs are slow and sappy. But not these 5 jams! It may be rare for Drake to make good pump up songs, but when he does, they’re must-listens. With these tracks, you’ll be ready to go from 0 to 100 real quick and kill any workout, which is why they HAD to be on our playlist of the best rap workout songs.

Draft Day

I’m Going In

For this track Drake partnered up with Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy to bring you the song to throw on when nothing seems to be going your way. Instead of being a sensitive Drake meme, beat those emotions out into your workout. Lift weights or run your sprints like you own the place.


The song sums up “doing you” better than anything else we’ve heard. Throw this one on your list of good pump up songs to always remember why you’re working out. Keep doing everything for you and you only. You have nothing to prove when it comes to what others think of you.

Known as one of the best rappers of all time, Em’s music will get you through even the toughest of boot camp style workouts. Just when you feel like you can’t do anymore, you’ll lose yourself in his music and let it take control. Not many consistently crank out top pump up songs like Marshall Mathers can!

Renegade – Jay Z. ft. Eminem

The Way I Am

This song is perfect for when you end up at the gym because you’re stressing. The lyrics couldn’t speak to that more if they tried. Be alone in your own head and focus on whatever challenge you have coming your way.

Lose Yourself

You definitely have to have this classic on any list of good pump up songs, no doubt. These lyrics coupled with the aggressive beat are enough to get anyone going. You’re working out for a reason. Give it all you have and lose yourself while getting the job done.

2 Chainz

2 Chainz is our go to rapper to fuel us through interval training or cycling. There’s nothing like a solid rap song to help you get your RPM’s up and feel like a complete badass during any workout. You’ll probably start rapping along to all the lyrics, so don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Used 2

This track might be three years old, but don’t underestimate its power to get you going. There’s a reason we had to have this on our list. It gets us amped up and ready to take on the world.

I’m Different

Spend It

Mercy – Kayne ft. 2 Chainz

We would be doing just a disservice if we didn’t include the one and only Mr. West in any list of top pump up songs. The hip-hop king teams up with multiple rappers to give you a track that with push you to your limits and further. Let all your worries fade away with the help of some Kanye.

Hip Hop Is Dead ft. will.i.am

It’s hard not to get off to a good start with the beat to this one. Tune into this track during your warm up to get that blood flowing to get ready for the feat ahead of you. The irony of this hip-hop song’s title is also pretty amusing; this song very much keeps hip-hop alive.

The World Is Yours

For another song that takes a little from the worlds of both rap and hip-hop, this track gives you the perfect combination of the two worlds. With a slower tempo, this is is another one to look to for good warm up songs, or even just for stretching.

Get Down
