thagrizz's TOP HIP HOP SINGLES


Young Dro Young Dro - “On Fire”

“Hot production on this one....Jim Jonsin is grinding like hell these days and sounding great. Although lyrically Dro does a pretty decent job, you can't expect him to drop a lyrically heavyweight track to put himself back in the game...he needed some hot radio bangin' production and a head knockin' track...nothing complicated - perfect for mainstream re-exposure. Grand Hustle DO IT! Great summer banger... PS I don't know why though, I've always been a bit partial to Dro so my review might be a bit biased. I don't know what it is about him, but I pull for Dro nonetheless...”

Birthday Sex Promo Photo Jeremih - “Birthday Sex”

“Not normally my cup of tea...but this has "#1 on the Charts" written all over this. Hopefully he gets a strong push from Def Jam as he deserves it. It's nice to see some more competition hitting the stage in the usually "3 or 4 at the top" world of dude R&B. Banger.”

Fabolous Fabolous - “It's My Time ft. Jeremih”

“Heat. Banger. Fire. Hit. I just gave my two cents on "in the bag" before I decided to listen to this...and I'm happy I saved the best for last. This street single is a 2009 lavarock. I'm floored. Runners production is near classic status. Fab sounds perfect on the heavy drums. And give Fab and Def Jam some credit for Jerimih some time to shine and shine hard and not having to get You-know-who and You-know-who #2 on the hook...keeping it Def Jam. This lets me know that Fab hasn't gone soft(ish) - the last single worried me. Roll out the red carpet and let Loso through...I'll be copping the album for sure. I think DJ Clue (Desert Storm!!!) is also thanking Fab as well...”

Clipse Clipse - “Kinda Like A Big Deal ft. Kanye West”

“I would have to say BANGER - through and through. I think with any Clipse bomb-track, it always takes a few listens for you to get hooked. Pusha T and Malice come hard to the table (both lyrically as usual and with great flow) and the production is Neptunes-soundish, but Neptunes before they got toooo far out (progressive?). Anyway, maybe everyone has gotten used to Ye's new style if about only 50% of those are feeling him on this, cause I personally was happy to hear him sans auto-tune with some on point griminess which comes as close he he'll ever get to the virginia natives. I saw Clipse live in January and the concert was fire. The house was packed and was going nuts, they know they have their fan base out there without having to sell their soul for radio spins. I hope they maintain like this till the casket does drop but I hope I don't have to wait that long for this next album 'cause if this is just a case of what's to come then make way for another classic. @ everyone, how can many of you listen to the new em track and give him passes and excuses on dropping his first single (arguably second) of the album and keep on sayin' "don't worry, it's not that good, but we know Em, it's his first forumlaic single, so it's actually awesome." Then you listen to this and many are saying "kinda disappointed" or "not really feeling this"...I don't get it, this here is real hip hop from some of the most underrated. Listen to this song a few more times, then tell me I'm wrong. Like I said: BANGER.”

Neako Neako - “I'm On It ft. Vertical Jones”

“There are so many things going on here on this track. Upon the first listen it could sound a little mixed-up, all over the place and confusing....but in the end it all comes together so nicely. Got a very space-age feel to it, but the "tribal" beat over top makes it what it is. I'm ok with auto-tune on a hook as it's become pretty standard these days and if it's done right it tends to work well, like here. Alleged Drake "copy-cat" or not, NeakO shows up with a Banger - and also, comparisons aside, if it sounds good, who the eff cares?”

The Embassy Music Board The Embassy Music Board - “My Life”

“This sounds good right here. They each bring a great original flow with their turns on the mic...sounds great over the production...and the production?? Fantastic. Much respect going out to Don Cannon. It's refreshing to here great production these days that isn't always necessarily synth-driven (as so many hits and bangers seem to be these days). Much respect to EMB and this Thursday Banger.”

Mic Legacy Mic Legacy - “Radio ft. Skyzoo”

“Can't to believe that this BANGER is the track with the least ratings (and by assumption the least listens?) of the day!!! I love this old school appeal with this new school feel. The energy here is high on both the soulful, yet head-knocking, production as well the flows. Kudos to Mic Legacy for coming hard on this...and I think Skyzoo sounds great on most of his cuts and guest verses - this one being no exception. It's my favourite for today and I'll definitely be looking out for more Mic Legacy in the future...”

Nappy Roots Nappy Roots - “That's Right”

“KA-BOOM! Nice big names for the freestyle series here on the booth...so sick - well done. Always liked this Akon instrumental and the Nappy Roots sounded great on this. While not the most technically superior freestyle (as compared to others from the series...) - this was just overall a great track. If that 40 Akerz business is as good as that Humdinger, we're all in for a nice treat. Kentucky & Georgia represent!!”
