Rick Ross

#1 - Rick Ross ft. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z - 3 Kings

You've got to hand it to Rick Ross, the man certainly knows how to stay in the news. For the Bawse's latest headline grabber he puts together what, judging by the names on the marquee alone, has to be considered one of the...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#2 - Lupe Fiasco - B*tch Bad

Did you hear it—that faint rustling sound issuing from nowhere in particular? That was the sound of Lupe Fiasco fans worldwide raising a collective eyebrow upon learning that the Chi-town rhymesayer was following up...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#3 - 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If Charlie Sheen references weren’t horribly outdated I’d make a “winning!”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

T.I.

#4 - T.I. - Like That

It’s been a long, long, long road for T.I. For every success a (usually self-imposed) setback seems to be waiting on the horizon for the King of the South, but as of right now T.I.’s looking like he’s ready to get back...Read More

Wiz Khalifa

#5 - 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

Nas

#6 - 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

B.o.B

#7 - 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

Nas

#8 - Nas ft. Rick Ross - Accident Murderers

Nearly two decades ago Nas broke onto the hip-hop scene with New York State of Mind, one of the best storytelling raps the game had ever heard. Fast forward to 2012 and Nasir is returning to his roots with new single Accident...Read More

Maybach Music Group

#9 - 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

Lil Wayne

#10 - Lil Wayne ft. Big Sean - My Homies Still

Lil Wayne had to have recorded his new single My Homies Still with Big Sean before he decided to launch a some "beef" with Pusha T and everyone who loves him; a category that would include, you'd imagine, Pusha's G.O.O.D....Read More

CyHi The Prynce

#11 - 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

Curren$y

#12 - 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

DJ Drama

#13 - 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

Ludacris

#14 - 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

Rick Ross

#15 - 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

GunPlay

#16 - GunPlay ft. Rick Ross - Real Ni**as

I know I'm not the only one who thought we'd heard the last of GunPlay after his crew, the Triple C's, sputtered, but the MMG rapper is proving to be more resilient that many doubters ever anticipated. Having gained a buzz...Read More

Slaughterhouse

#18 - 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

#19 - 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
