’11 Best Singles: #6 The Throne “Otis”

Before the album even dropped, this song was a movement by itself. Son! Do you remember how this pass-the-mic, soul sample-packed lyrical exchange shook the rap game up? Over Otis Redding’s “Tenderness,” this nigga Kanye told YMCMB to “tuck their whole summer in.” Crazy! Hov’s callin the paps on himself? This shit still give me chills. Run it back! Maybe Flex likes this shit more than me. But not by a lot. Ha!

    Just throwing this out there, because out of all the singles, this one would probably overlap best with the same audience, but one of my personal favorite singles this year was “Thuggin'” by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib. Link below or Google it, apparently they’re gonna be dropping a full-length LP sometime soon.
