’12 Best Singles: #6 G.O.O.D. Music “Mercy”

These days, posse cuts may seem oversaturated and underwhelming, but Cruel Summer‘s lead single was the complete opposite. Over a chopped up hook and a Fuzzy Jones soundbwoy-sample, Yeezy’s collective individually delivered. Big Sean takes off from the starting line with his repetitive flow while the metaphors from Pusha T soon followed behind (“I’m red leather, I’m cocaine, I’m Rick James, ho”). As the Scarface theme music slowly creeps in, Kanye pulls up with his boastful raps. However, it’s 2 Chainz’ closing verse that’s the song’s true blessing (“I’m drunk and high at the same time, drinking champagne on the airplane”). Oh, mercy me. Now that’s the true champion sound.

    WOW I”m shocked it wasnt #1. This shit was played out after a week

  • true

    all the way down here at #6 eh? now i know y’all done fucked up

  • Dashing

    Number 6 woulda been number 1 to me….

    But then again I thought “2 Chainz’ closing verse that’s the song’s true blessing” would make the list of best guest verses and it didn’t. No “Clique” then? I wouldn’t rank that higher than “Mercy” even with Jay on it.

    Permanent head scratch.
