HNHH's top 10 tracks, according to our Top 100 chart.
Last week was a game changer at the top of the Top 100. After a few weeks of relative consistency, the Top Ten was washed out in a wave of new music. Keep track of how those songs are doing below.
10) The Game ft. Dej Loaf – Ryda
While it’s not exactly a new song, this cleaned-up CDQ version of the track formerly known as “Ambitionz of a Rida” still managed to eke its way into the Top 10, debuting at #10 this past week. The upbeat track pulls double-duty, introducing Dej Loaf to everyone who is waiting for the old Game to come back and re-introducing The Game to Dej’s young fanbase.
9) 2 Chainz – Get Away (Freestyle)
The only guaranteed freestyles to land in our Top 10 come from Luda and Fabolous, so you know Tity 2 Necklaces’ take on Mobb Deep’s “Get Away” earned its spot, entering the Top 100 at #9. The uncharacteristically serious track is set to appear on DJ Self’s upcoming Expanding My Business mixtape.
8) Fabolous – Been Around The World Remix (Freestyle)
What did we just say? Fab continues his freestyle chart run with this freestyle over Puff Daddy’s “Been Around The World (Remix)” Fab lays the punchlines on thick, referencing everyone from 2 Chainz to Aaron Hernandez in this excellent take. This freestyled debuted at #8.
7) King Los ft. Marsha Ambrosius – War
People have been waiting for King Los to blow up for a while now, and with tracks like this one it’s looking like it just might happen. “War” features some of the nicest production that King Los has ever been on (courtesy of Anomaly & Da Internz) and bodes well for his upcoming major debut God Money War. As Los himself has been tracking, this single is climbing its way up our Top 100, with a spot at #7.
6) Tech N9ne ft. Eminem & Krizz Kalico – Speedom (Worldwide Choppers 2)
This is the moment that fans of Tech and Em have been waiting for for over 15 years. The last time the two noted, high-octane rappers appeared on a track together was all the way back in 1999 with the showcase track "The Anthem."
While it’s debatable if “Speedom” was worth all the wait, it’s certainly a killer track with an unexpected nod to Richie Havens’ on the Krizz Kalico bridges. Unexpectedly, it debuts within our Top 10 at #6.
5) Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y – Weed Nap
Wiz and Curren$y have never been known for subtlety, so releasing a song called “Weed Nap” that sounds like a blazed take on a rainy afternoon is totally in their wheelhouse.
While the track doesn’t break any new ground, it’s certainly better than Wiz’s embarrassing attempts at hyped-up party music over the last few years. Spacey and lazy Khalifa is best Khalifa. Welcome the duo at #5.
4). Raekwon ft. A$AP Rocky – I Got Money
A$AP Rocky has never been one to fetishize New York rap history. The A$AP Mob figurehead came up in a rootless, post-internet generation, always looking for what rap could be as opposed to what it was. That makes it all the more special when we get to hear Rocky go in over a traditional boom bap sound.
Rocky joins Old Guard member Raekwon on “I Got Money”, a track from the Wu-Tang member’s upcoming album F.I.L.A. and both rappers rise to the occasion.
3) Dej Loaf ft. Lil Wayne – Me, You & Hennessy (Remix)
It was a Dej Loaf kind of week. The Detroit native landed on our Top 100 both as a feature and as a main attraction. This Weezy-assisted remix of her slow jam netted her the bronze in its first week on the charts.
2) Drake – My Side
This is the only track to remain in the top ten from last week. The If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late bonus track stayed firmly at #2 in spite of a lukewarm reaction from HNHH readers.
1) Chris Brown & Rihanna – Put It Up
This previously unreleased bedroom jam provides listeners with a glimpse of what Breezy and RiRi were feeling before Brown decided to be despicable. Or at least it did, before it was scrubbed off of Soundcloud.
