Hip Hop in it's Purest Form…

My 3 Favorite Songs of 2010

For awhile now, I have been putting together some type of lists for Best Albums/Mixtapes/Songs of the Year. But over the last few, lists like that are getting more & more trendy, and less & less relevant. So instead this year, I decided to make it simple on you and say that Big K.R.I.T. – Krit Wuz Here was the best release of the year, hands down. I am still not sure if it was a mixtape or album, but either way, I thought the production and songwriting on that joint stood above the rest. With that being said, I guess you can name my favorite song of the year to be, “Country Sh*t.” I remember when I first heard this track, the feeling I got. I immediately knew it was a special song(even though NYC booed him when he performed it there, hahaha).

Next up, I gotta go with the homie Freddie Gibbs. This dude is straight gangsta. Haha. He gets it in though. His verses are always dope and he has a good ear for beats and rhythm. If you don’t believe me check out this heater from Str8 Killa, No Filla

Lastly, I am going with a joint that kinda surprised me at first. The reason that it did is because I thought it was a local song the first time I heard it. That’s because Mickey Factz went and recorded multiple versions to go with DJ’s all over the country. Pretty good idea, if I do say so myself. This beat is just so crazy. I have never heard anything like it. Check it out…

Really, I think all 3 of these songs are dope, and it’s difficult to put one above the other. 2010 was a pretty good year for music. I hope that trend continues into 2011…
