    Forgot about 'Sunday School'!

    Would have included Burrprint 3D but I believe it was released 2009? As were all Gucci's classic tapes (same goes for Max B).

    Will seek out some of those others.

    LD, Monkey and Dimzy's "6.7" is the best of the Brixton Drill stuff I think so far :



    Young Thug : Barter 6

    Earl Sweatshirt : I don't like shit, I don't go outside

    The first two songs off of Lese Majesty by Shabazz Palaces are fantastic, super super super mushroom trippy, especially the way they segue into each other. Rest is meh but worth it for those two.

    CasIsDead's "Commercial 2" mixtape is wonderful, Cas rapping over dreamy dated electro house.



    Chief Keef's Bang 3 wasn't released in this form but someone compiled an imaginary version of it here, which I really like.



    I loved Lil Reese's Supa Savage 2, it's just super solid, and is probably my most played thing on this list bar the Thug.

    I'll bleed it over as I feel like that's the peak of Gucci and it needs to be counted over his more questionable 10s material.

    Speaking of which, this is a really good oral history of Gucci's rise/fall/rise from The Fader: http://www.thefader.com/2015/10/01/g...y-hard-to-kill

    Yeah, only tracks I really like are Big Emblem Benz and Hurt Like This, don't like the music on the rest of it enough to give it time, unfortunately.

    Just checked out that Viper you posted, it's wonderful.

    I have had to listen to a whole Wiz Kalifah tape in order to review it, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    You do get some great mixtapes/albums but I definitely think that these days singles are a more 'relevant' index of rap music than albums are. Mind you, it's hard enough picking 10 mixtapes/albums, let alone 10 singles!

    point taken. enjoying this though. have picked up cds by danny brown, future, asap money, vince staples, rich gang, kendrick lamarr, yg, rick ross and earl sweatshirt.

    a few years back i compiled these from that nozinsky blokes singles lists and was really underwhelmed by the whole singles thing - maybe he just has weak taste?

    noz' has good taste, or seems to, but yeah i find his lists a bit underwhelming too. i think he picks a lot of album tracks rather than singles on those end of year round ups he does?

    Great, thanks for the tips man, his catalogue was so immense that I didn't bother and what I came across I wasn't into, but I really like the Yo Side Thang one. Will look those others out, thanks.

    Apropos of nothing, this beat, on a loop, forever :

    Noz's lists usually aren't based around singles all the time, just what he's looking for specifically in rap from certain people. So For example, I know one year he had "Gucci Gucci" by Kreayshawn on it the same year he had DJ Quik "Ghetto Rendezvous" and E-40 "My Little Grimey N***A" which aren't great singles by any means, but kind of good showcases for the rapper at what he considers their best (in Quik's case, incredibly petty battle raps aimed at members of his family or former friends and in E-40's case, weird ultraspecific detailed 'panoramic' storytelling, though without a clear beginning/end structure like say a "Children's Story".)

    I've done lists kind of like that too, and its weird to rate one thing over another, but like when I think about it I'm rating "is this beat interesting, is there something going on lyrically, is there a unique quality to the song I don't find very common" So like, Rich Homie Quan making a song about dealing with his father being shot is def. that characteristic, but Famous Dex rapping about being the man isn't. Doesn't mean that the former's the better single either!





    Edit: also if I'm out here alluding to lists, I should link them.
