Tracks of the Year PT. 2

Round 2, lets go! (and because Dwei brought up a good point...some tunes might not be seen as SFW. If this is seen as an issue, I would just listen to these when you get home!)

STARKEY FEAT. MERKY ACE & KOZZIE - PC


A killer grime tune from one of my favorite producers, and two really awesome MC's. Not too over the top, but still grimey enough that the streets should love it!

SPOOKY - SPARTAN


While this single was released in 2010...again, I give it a pass since it was December 30th. Its close enough to 2011. This instrumental, as well as all the remixes, brought real Grime back in a serious way.

ASAP ROCKY - PALACE


An awesome intro into one of my favorite albums of the year. Might not be everyones cup of tea, but if you like southern style hip hop, give ASAP Rocky a listen!

GEMMY - DA DODGEMS


Any time I hear this song, all I can think of is the So Solid Crew (here is your proof). The vocal sample at the drop is actually what sold me on the track. The whole thing is good, but seriously, I just love saying Awwwwwwww Shieeeeet.

MENSAH - BIG UP THE GOONS/ACID DUB



I couldn't choose which of these two tracks to put, so I settled for both. Big Up the Goons is a gangsta as shit purple kind of track...while Acid Dub is a throwback to the old school rave sound. Love them both to death.

Also, watch out for the post coming on Christmas morning, folks...you're going to be in for quite the present from ol' Santa (if you're good of course!)
