What's your favorite song of 2011 thus far?

It brings me great pleasure to announce several of my favorite writers will be revealing their picks for 2011's most impressive rap song right here on 'Droptops & Stacy Lattisaw Tapes' next week. With that said, I'm curious as to what songs the ol' faithful readership have enjoyed the most this year. I suppose I'll look pretty silly if no one responds to this, but whatever. What say you?


  1. Okay, so as the narrow minded Nas stan that I am it's definetly "Nasty". Come on man! Nothing or Nobody else matters when Nas is droppin' good music.

  2. Based on songs ive played the most:

    Danny Brown -Cartier, Radio Head
    Frank Ocean - Swim Good
    Cyhi - Whoopty Doo

    Nasty is kinda meh to me

  3. "Scarface Nigga"

    Keep the good work.

  4. *late addition*

    Ghetto Dreams - Nas & Com

  5. Jehst - England
    Action Bronson - Shiraz
    Davinci - Blame Game

    Must be other ones too....

  6. Yep, just heard the Nas & Com and it is certified proper.

  7. "Ghetto Dreams - Nas & Com"

    ^What?! *sprints to rap radar*

  8. "Come on man! Nothing or Nobody else matters when Nas is droppin' good music."

    ^Can't argue with this. I had a hard time narrowing down my favorite.

  9. Fat Joe - Pushing Keys
    Pusha T - Alone In Vegas
    Saigon - Greatest Story Never Told (song)
    Kendrick Lamar - Ignorance Is Bliss
    Kendrick Lamar - The Heart Pt 2
    Kendrick Lamar - Hiipower
    Rawse x Meek - Perfectionist
    Rawse - Transporter
    MMG - Self Made (Meek & the instrumental mostly)
    Amanda Diva - Manchild
    Mobb Deep - Dog Shit
    Action Bronson - Imported Goods

  10. WTK & ALC - Fucking Toxic
    Rawse - Transporter
    Pusha T - Alone In Vegas

    ^hmmm... Definitely up there.

  11. I'm not gonna bring up the white lady but quik & Free's Nobody is mine by a few football fields. DB The General's I B On isnt far off. I like the Wille The Kid/Alc joint though

    "Scarface Nigga" I thought this was from last year?

  12. "Jehst - England"

    Havent Heard that name in a long time.

  13. ^His new album has some real treats on it.

    This "England" track has a "Shook Ones PT2" vibe to it beat-wise.

    Check for it.

  14. Big Krit-R4 Theme
    The Weeknd-Glass Table
    Jamie xx & Gil Scott Heron-Ny Is Killing Me
    Kendrick Lamar-The Heart pt 2
    WTK and Styles P-Live From The Ritz

    There are prolly a bunch of songs I'm forgetting, but these 5 all come to mind most prominently.

  15. Also, I was literally in a record shop in the west end of ldn today and saw that Jehst album out. I'm a huge fan but had no idea he was dropping that ish. UK hip hop and grime are slept on...

  16. You throwing up sets but you really from Cleveland

  17. RNC Chairman Michael SteeleJuly 2, 2011 at 10:45 PM

    Juicy J ft. Curren$y- Bitch I Own You
    Drake- Dreams Money Can Buy
    Wiz Khalifa- The Race
    Kanye- Mama's Boyfriend [who cares if it's not real]
    DJ Khaled, Drake, Wayne, Ross- I'm On One
    Big KRIT- R4 Theme Song
    Big Sean ft. Chris Brown- My Last
    Tyle tha Creator- Yonkers

    Good call on CyHi's Woopty Doo whoever said that.

    My answer to your question is :

    Lincoln Continental

  21. Raekwon ft. Nas - Rich & Black
    Nas - Nasty
    Raekwon ft. Method Man, Raheem Devaughn - From the Hills
    Mobb Deep - Must Go Hard
    Grafh - Black Roses
    Lil Flip - Trap Talk 2
    Blu - Lucky
    Curren$y - Ventilation

    ^off the top of the my head

  22. Blu - Lucky

    ^This one was pretty slept on. Nice track.

  23. Was listening to that "Jesus" tape the other day...wasn't as bad as I initially thought it was...

    sure its very avant-garde but that isn't anything new for John Barnes

  24. for me it's Kendrick Lamar - Ronald Reagan Era

    Section 80 hands down best album/tape of the year.. so glad he didn't stay w BWS, he's a straight beast
