Meek Mill

#1 - Meek Mill ft. Drake & Jeremih - Amen

Hope y'all are dressed up in your Sunday best, because Meek Mill's taking us to church. A standout cut off the MMG fast-riser's Dreamchasers 2 street album, Amen has been repurposed as the lead single off his forthcoming...Read More

T.I.

#2 - T.I. - Go Get It

T.I. will be the first to admit that his career in the game hasn't been an uninterrupted string of victories—I mean, he is titling his new album “Trouble Man”--but, when you add it all up, precious few can compete with...Read More

Baby aka Birdman

#3 - Birdman ft. Rick Ross, Lil Wayne & Nicki Minaj - Born Stunna (Remix)

First featured back in mid-May, Birdman's Born Stunna won plaudits from the rap mogul's loyal fans, but left many others cold. Thus, Baby's recruited two of his biggest YMCMB colleagues to invest the joint with wider appeal....Read More

Maybach Music Group

#4 - Maybach Music Group ft. Kendrick Lamar - Power Circle

When you’ve got the entire MMG roster (minus Omarion) appearing on the same cut, you expect a banging, DJ Khaled-esque posse cut, right? Wrong. Instead el generalissimo Rick Ross decides to take things in a completely...Read More

Ludacris

#5 - Ludacris - Jingalin

On a 1990 single off LL Cool J's Walking With a Panther LP, the battle-rap master advised his competitor to set down the mic and dance like the female he is—hence the jingling earrings. More of a lover (or, at least,...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#6 - Wiz Khalifa ft. 2 Chainz - It's Nothin

If Charlie Sheen references weren’t horribly outdated I’d make a “winning!” reference, but you have to admit, Wiz Khalifa hasn’t taken any losses in a while. Everything he’s put out in recent memory has been met...Read More

Curren$y

#7 - Curren$y ft. Young Jeezy & Lil Wayne - Jet Life (Remix)

Currently riding high (literally, I imagine) off the success of his major-label debut album, Curren$y sits back and luxuriates in his achievements on the official remix of reader-acclaimed single Jet Life. For this version of...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#8 - Wiz Khalifa ft. Busta Rhymes - Different Cloth

They’ve always said that Wiz Khalifa was cut from a different cloth. Actually, I don’t know who “they” are, and I don’t think anyone’s used that phrase in conversation since 1954. But maybe they’ll start now...Read More

DJ Drama

#9 - DJ Drama ft. Future & Drake - We in This B*tch 1.5

Since We in This B*tch already featured about as much guest muscle as could be packed into one record, DJ Drama's switched it up for the record's newly-released half-sequel. Rather than simply throwing more talent onto the...Read More

2 Chainz

#10 - 2 Chainz ft. Drake - No Lie

Anyone who thinks that 2 Chainz’ success has come overnight clearly doesn’t remember how long he’s been grinding as Tity Boi as a member of Playaz Circle. But regardless of the moniker, it’s an undeniable fact that...Read More

G.O.O.D Music

#11 - Chief Keef ft. Kanye West, Pusha T, Jadakiss & Big Sean - I Don't Like (Remix)

And they say that negativity won't get you anywhere in life! After scoring a local hit with I Don't Like, a jam which found him listing off the myriad people and things that he simply can't stand, Booth newcomer Chief Keef...Read More

Kendrick Lamar

#12 - Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank)

UPDATE: Click "Watch Video" above to view the brand new video for Swimming Pools (Drank). Hip-hop's never been shy about drinking, but in recent years rappers seem to have taken liver-destruction to a new level. No longer...Read More

Rick Ross

#13 - Rick Ross - Hold Me Back

For years “Don’t Hold Me Back bro!” has been the rallying cry of frat boy fights nationwide, yelled by people who, in fact, want their friends to hold them back from a fight. Rick Ross, as always, has other plans. For...Read More

Slaughterhouse

#14 - Slaughterhouse ft. Swizz Beatz - Throw It Away

Back in March, Slaughterhouse polarized listeners with My Life, a single which found them tempering their lyrically iconoclastic style with more mainstream ambitions. On the follow-up, Throw It Away, the group once again...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#15 - Big K.R.I.T. ft. Slim Thug & Lil KeKe - Me And My Old School (Remix)

When you’re Big K.R.I.T. the grind never stops. You’d think dropping Live From the Underground, the number one rap album in the country, would be enough to Krizza to take a vacation, but he’s right back at it with a...Read More

B.o.B

#16 - B.o.B ft. Nicki Minaj - Out Of My Mind

B.o.B. is a man just as capable of crooning an acoustic guitar ballad as he is rhyming hard next to Playboy Tre. So it only makes sense that after previous single Both Of Us, featuring pop princess Taylor Swift, Bobby Ray has...Read More

CyHi The Prynce

#17 - Cyhi Da Prynce ft. Chris Brown & Big Sean - 100 Bottles

I think hip hop needs an intervention. Day-by-day and single-by-single, it's becoming more evident that rappers have a love affair with buying and downing bottles (of liquor). The latest victim? G.O.O.D. Music's very own CyHi...Read More

Nas

#18 - Nas - Bye Baby

Since Nas is on record saying that his Life is Good album, and certainly the cover, is directly inspired by his acrimonious divorce with Kelis, we can just go ahead and assume that Bye Baby and its music video is pretty damn...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#19 - Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)

"Those who would trade in their freedom for their protection deserve neither," Benjamin Franklin. And if I’m starting off a post with some revolutionary political quotes than there’s a pretty good chance some new Lupe...Read More
