FredRico's TOP HIP HOP SINGLES


J. Cole J. Cole - “Premeditated Murder”

“Rappers are usually insecure about having good vocals in rap (it's not "cool", you know, maybe even "gay"), so even the fans can’t recognize singing when they hear it from a rapper... but that's exactly what J. Cole did here (without autotune *cough*Drake*cough*). Production is amazingly beautiful, the composition denotes a real artist behind it, with musical ear. And all that comes from a guy who is rapping like the finest MCs ever, yet so genuine.”

Love the Way You Lie Promo Photo Eminem - “Love the Way You Lie”

“The circumstances that led to the Rihanna feature makes this so genuine and powerful. With the proper proportions, or just humanity, anyone can relate to this. Em paints a graphic, gripping picture and his psychotic flow fitted this perfectly. It was a relief that Rihanna actually sounded good (it's not a sure bet), but the biggest surprise was the production, probably the most commercial of Em's career. (get over it!) Not a single flaw on this one!”

Ya Hear Me Promo Photo T.I. - “Ya Hear Me”

“Beat is dope: that bassline, guitar and organ bring a fresh vibe! The opening alone is enough to tell you the musical greatness you're about to have. I'd love to hear this live! T.I. makes it sound easy, but there's actually an amazing effort in how he rides the beats he gets. It's as great as a flow can get! He actually makes it proper without loosing any comfort and sounding genuine and dynamic. People are so damn spoiled...”

Live Fast Die Young Promo Photo Rick Ross - “Live Fast Die Young”

“Amazing! Kanye did one hell of a job here! Production is top notch, the music is beautifully crafted and catchy! This is so heavily Kanye-influenced that the only way one can tell it's a Rick Ross song is that he gets 2 verses and does actually sound hungrier than usual. Nonetheless Kanye was the most comfortable on the beat and was outstanding. The chorus is just feel-good and genuine. Rap listeners are definitely not music lovers. Rating this garbage and hating is plain ignorant.”

Like It or Not Promo Photo Justin Garner - “Like It or Not”

“A real R&B SINGER?! Not a pretty boy who knows some dance moves?! Not a production-depending travesty!? :o No autotune gimmicks?! You gotta be kidding me!!! In 2010?! Nah, this must have been done in the 90's, so that's it, there's the gimmick! Seriously now, Usher's vocals are overrated for me Z, so I'd say Justin's voice is even better! He actually reminds me of Robert from Day26, but a little smoother. First time hearing Justin, and he's definitely Top3 R&B singer right now (sit down Jason Derulo, I.Y.A.Z, Sean Kingston and alike... -_-)! And then the production?! Music like this isn't made anymore! Great man, thanx! Finally a "traditional" R&B jam. I love some "contemporary" too, but this type of sound shouldn't disappear! The percussion alone deserves one full listen to this and enjoy the build up. LISTEN!”

XXXO (Remix) Promo Photo M.I.A. - “XXXO (Remix)”

“Loved it! Production is just catchy and M.I.A.'s delivery is addictive. Love the blend of rapping and singing. Jay's verse sounded great, his flow was so on point!”

No Love Promo Photo Eminem - “No Love”

“0_o Nathan, you should be punched in your big boy face! ... XD haha Man, you're bold to dare exposing yourself like that! I don't like Eminem singing too (why does he have to make it so high pitched, wtf?! He's not even bad at singing, just chooses awful tones!), but everything else is perfect! Em's lyrics and delivery blow me away!!! I'm so glad people doubted him now! =) And what a pleasure to listen to Lil Wayne in a rapper mode, and a great one at that! The beat is great: way to make the sample work! I always get hyped as the beat builds up, like it was the first time. "Where the fuck is Kanye when you need him..?" is probably my favorite quote for some time to come... I know I could use Kanye when I'm surrounded by clowns! XD”
