  1. Tight list broski.

    I am really happy to see all the Bay songs on here and especially stoked about Rich the Factor making the cut because he makes so much dope music that no one seems to care about besides a handful of people.

  2. Hl you need to do a Nas-less one every year, this is a goodun. That Rich song is so good.

    Thats one of my most played off the Styles tape myself.

  3. Yeah, a little heavy on the Bay this year. Guess I dug a lot deeper into that scene than in years past.

  4. It's like we're currently trapped in a bizzaro universe where a Nas song makes my list but he's entirely absent from yours.

  5. @Lowery I'm not yet familiar with Quilly's work.
