’11 Best Singles: #7 2 Chainz x T.I. “Spend It (Remix)”

2 Chainz’s “Spend It” was already the hottest in the hood. But once T.I. was released from the clink and added a verse for the remix, it was a wrap. Over Drumma Boy’s friendly organs, Tip delivered a sweet 16 that complimented Chainz’s kooky rhymes, “I’m riding around on my side of town/ Wit’ my dubs up, and my wind down”. Don’t forget the similac!

’11 Best Singles: #8 Ace Hood Ft. Rick Ross x Lil Wayne “Hustle Hard (Remix)”

This street anthem set the year off right. Make no mistake, Khaled’s protege had a certified smash on his own. Lex Luger’s sinister track was knocking and Ace’s hook was deadly killer but then Rozay and Wayne hopped on and this joint went national. Weezy’s verse here is his best since life after prison. With a lil help from his friends, Hood proved all the doubters wrong. The third time is still the charm. We The Best be that logo.

’11 Best Singles: #9 J.Cole x Trey Songz “Can’t Get Enough”

The story goes that Trey Songz was originally rapping on the chorus. Thankfully, the powers that be deaded that. Held down by Balla Et Ses Balladins’ tribal sample, Cole creates an irresistible hit with more bounce than an ounce. But it’s not all fun and games, Lightskinned Jermaine still handles his business with smart similes like, “I’m from the ‘Ville where they bang for the money/ And carry 4-5’s like change for a 20.” Good God, that hit the spot!

’11 Best Singles: #10 Wale x Miguel “Lotus Flower Bomb”

Interscope didn’t believe. Rozay did. And MMG’s star recruit proved the Warner Bros bosses right. The misunderstood DC MC showed us that he could make hit records. Big hit records. Shit, this one is still heavy on the radio and recently knocked “Niggas In Paris” out the #1 Hip-Hop/R&B Songs charts position. I’ve yet to meet a member of the female species who can resist this one. Miguel hittin’ high notes. Folarin spittin’ game. A-E-I-O-U equals W-I-N.
