Schoolboy Q featuring A$AP ROCKY-Hands on the Wheel
This is one of the most fantastically offensive rap songs not just of this year but of the decade. It’s a song so disgusted with itself and hostile that listening to it might make you want to punch the world in its ugly face. Schoolboy loves to say the F word as much as he loves to brag about drunk driving, when A$AP comes on he spits the laundry list of drugs flowing through his altered body. Anyone who thought Kid Cudi was too whiny and self aware on Pursuit of Happiness, can take this song as that one’s big thuggish older brother. Unashamed, unaware and fearful of nothing.

Gucci Mane featuring Waka-Walking Lick
Of all the most hated current rappers: Waka, Soulja Boy, Hurricane Chris (JUST KIDDING DO YOU EVEN REMEMBER HIM?) Ice Cream face is probably the most talented. Gucci can sit back and let the DJ have the first 30 seconds to say terribly annoying things, he’s that confident in his ability to make music. It’s not all the strange chipmunk voices repeating the hook that make it work. It’s an artist with a completely unique flow and ability to dig into dark subject matter or merely to insinuate it. Waka got rich off yelling and that’s exactly what he does here, he’s great at it. You can listen to this song once, cross your arms and say KRS-ONE wouldn’t have made this but if you listen a few more times…you’ll be hooked. You can hate Ice Cream face but you shouldn’t front. Dude is talented.
