’13 Best Beats #1: Boi-1da x Jordan Evans “Pound Cake”

Cake Anyone?

Hope you saved room for dessert. With a touch of Timbaland’s vocal recreation of the Wu’s “C.R.E.A.M” chorus, Ellie Goulding’s “Dont Say A Word” is layered over fluffy drums and atmospheric warmth. Needless to say, Drake’s frequent beatsmith Boi-1da whipped up a tasty batch for him and Jay to close out Nothing Was The Same. What a happy ending. Bon appétit.—Big Homie

    The beat was nice and smooth, but the best of 2013? How?

    • Mike Wash

      considering that the beat was made around jay’s acapella verse is tough, then its just raw….anybody can rap on it but only the best rappers gonna murder it and stand out

  • Caposet303

    ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. This makes no sense. So many beats are better than this like I don’t understand. Too Much was better than this and we talking about another beat on the same album. Damn near all off Pusha’s album beat wise is better than this. If I want to start nitpicking other albums then I could easily give you a list of 15 records with better production than this.

    • Boyz

      Dont call garbage. you can listen the beat without the artists’ very creative of 2013. period. any producer would agree. Also how many rappers covered after it was released huh?

  • RNDYM

    Man, this list was horrendous. Slept on so many heaters… I hope you guys never executive produce an album or compilation cuz that shit would have mediocre beats (at best) all the way across the board.

  • NAs

    Ok this was BS….

  • Mag

    Great choice!

    Just an idea, maybe next time have a poll for the users and let us choose our favourites. I think it would say a lot for what we are all really fucking with.

  • Dashing28

    the best beat of the year? Of all of 2013? It’s not the best beat on NWTS.

    If there is even 1 person who thinks this was the best beat of the year, speak now and explain yourself

  • Pdog

    The thing sign pound cake is that it wouldn’t necessarily me anyone’s best beat of the year but I think majority would put it top 5 consistently so on average it probably could be called the best beat

  • Don P

    Might as well change the name to DrakeRadar Elliot! Terrible

    • Strong Enough

      just leave nigga

  • Jody Hudlin

    No way this is beat of the year. Its nice but I even liked Paris Morton music beat better than this

    • Courtney S.

      I agree! Paris Motion Music is a better beat IMO…If Jay-z wasn’t on Pound Cake nobody would be paying this much attention to it and it definitely wouldn’t be #1.

  • Ed

    ASAP FERG’S WORK WAS THE BEST AND MOST ROTATED BEAT OF 2013. RAP RADAR GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!!

  • JADatsyuk

    Fuck with the song and beat, but not sure about #1. It might not even be best on the album. Still wondering how Picasso and Tom Ford didn’t make the list.

  • CCXX

    King Push?

    • Strong Enough

      you people dickride pusha too much

  • sway-z

    Ain’t no way in hell this was the best beat of ’13, it wasn’t even the best beat on that album…

  • VAUN

    Credibility…shattered

  • JemPage

    even I had to have a crack at this beat: https://soundcloud.com/jem-page/pound-cake

  • LOL

    hip hop is on it’s deathbed, and this is why.

  • Mike Wash

    Yall clearly don’t get the point of this site do you? It’s not a for the come up/under appreciated rapper……who putting numbers on the board?

  • Pull the other one

    You guys set the bar really fuckin low with this one foolcats.

  • LA Tha Gawd™

    I would really appreciate it if y’all listen to this record. https://soundcloud.com/boi-genuis/whatyougot-feat-d-stacy-prod

  • Peekay

    most overrated beat of the year. Don’t like it at all. These lists are a joke.

  • mokgethwa

    Best beat of 2013 is definitely the Control beat

  • CmonSon

    Lmao this best beats list is God awful
