Oh, hey there. Merry Christmas and all that. As the new year looms ever so closer I thought I’d get on this list making bandwagon and put together something that will very likely be the playlist my friends and I will see in the new year to. These are the songs we’ve listened to pretty much on repeat since they came out, the songs we blast before we go out to town, and the songs we harass DJ 09 to play every time we’re at Hitch haha!!
DJ Khaled feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Rick Ross – I’m On One
The perfect song for that time of the year when everyone will be ‘on one’. As soon as Khaled sings, ‘get em up’ you’ll be raising your plastic glasses and asking whoever’s next to you, ‘what’s up with your best friend?’
Best lines to rap out loud to: “I walk around the club, f**k everybody” & “So get it while you here boy, cos all that hype don’t feel the same next year boy”
Meek Mill feat. Rick Ross – I’m A Boss
Oh man, so many times have I jumped around the club like a lunatic rap-singing to this song, no doubt I was off-beat and shouting the wrong lyrics but that’s not the point. The point is the self-affirmation of singing “I’m a Boss” repeatedly, and putting your arms around friends and sharing a moment about popping bottles and models. hmmm.
Best lines to rap out loud to: Meek Mill’s entire first verse, & “f**k a blog dog, cos’ one day we gon’ meet” + “scared money don’t make no money, if I ever go broke, I’ma take your money”.
Jay-Z & Kanye – Ni***s in Paris
We’re all gonna be dancing round like this dude once this song drops. That shit cray!
Best lines to rap out loud to: Yeah, all of it. Personal faves : “That shit cray, ain’t it Jay? What she order, fish fillet?” & “bourgeois girl, grab her hand, f**k that bitch, she dont wanna dance, excuse my French but I’m in France, I’m just sayin.’
Future – Tony Montana
The first time I heard this song, I was like ‘why’s his voice sound funny?’ Oh, it’s cos’ he’s rapping in a Tony Montana accent LOL. I enjoy how the concept of the song has been taken so literally, with ‘you leave me no choice’ as part of the hook and Future taking over the streets fresh off the banana boat.
Best lines to rap out loud to: “I know Sosa” & “I’m bout to cop a tiger, and put it in a castle.”
