Jay-Z, Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur cover the latest issue.

Rolling Stone magazine has named Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message" as the greatest Hip Hop song of all time.

According to Reuters, the 1982 hit crowns the list of the 50 most influential Hip Hop songs of all time. The magazine refers to the song as the first track "to tell, with Hip Hop's rhythmic and vocal force, the truth about modern inner-city life in America."

Additional songs on the list include Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" (No. 2), Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere" (No. 19) Run-D.M.C.'s "Sucker M.C.'s," Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy," Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's "Nuthin' But A G Thang," Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" and Kanye West's "Jesus Walks" (No. 32). Additional artists to make the cut include Jay-Z, Eminem, Missy Elliott, Outkast, Lauryn Hill, LL Cool J, Nas and Tupac.

The full list, compiled by 33 members of a panel that included ?uestlove, editors and experts, will be released online at RollingStone.com and will be included in the magazine on December 7th. That issue will feature four different covers: Eminem, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur, the picture of which can be viewed below (via Instagram).
