List of participants: CzechyGuy, Jasdevi087, neekafat, anatelier (replaced tacos N stuff), DeadlyNightShade, DeusAutomata9012, Sevengill, Conmaniac, Drifter, dbizzles, butcherboy, DoofusWainwright, BlazinBlitzer, AsleepInTheBack, anarchistfish, pjorn, VaxXi, Dewinged, SoccerRiot, bgillesp, Joeman82, CompostCompote
22Lil Wayne

Drop the World

Jeff Ross said it best:
21Vanilla Ice
To the Extreme

Ice, Ice, Baby

Good god, you can't get any whiter than this, can you? 2.0/5
20Wicca Phase Springs Eternal

Shut My Eyes

Of course, this Emo jack off comes from Conmaniac. This could have been just a stupid and weird track with not a lot to show for itself, but the vocals are just the worst thing in history of everything ever. 2.2/5
19Big Sean
Finally Famous: The Album

Dance (Ass)

bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad 2.2/5

P.S.: Now I know why everyone hates Nicky Minaj...yeesh
1850 Cent
Get Rich or Die Tryin'

21 Questions

"If I didn't smell so good, would you still hug me?" Truly a lyrical genius. 2.3/5
17Angie Martinez
Animal House

If I Could Go

This track should stay in that early 00s pothouse shed or the slightly trashy make-up-overusing late-teen girl, who says 'bitch' inbetween every word. 2.5/5
16Chief Keef
Finally Rich

Hate Being Sober

The beat may be as standard a beat as you can get, but is fire nevertheless; Chief Keef's flow is somewhat odd and not exactly enjoyable; and the features (50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa) are pretty much non distict. But in spite of all that, if you turn your brain off, it's your typical banger that required no real concentration. 3.4/5
15Young Thug
Barter 6


A textbook example of a perfectly acceptable and accessible Pop-Rap track that has nothing to offer beyond its core fun nature. It's dumb, but it works. 3.5/5
14Insane Clown Posse
The Great Milenko

Hokus Pokus

If it wasn't for their openly idiotic personalities, I might have taken this track seriously, because it does sound professionally made with nice production and some interesting beats and even fine verses. And it is really only the fact that their theatrical component is pretty much unnecessary for this song in particular, outside of that it's a fairly decent track. Nothing above usual, nothing offensively bad. 3.5/5
Hotel California

Switch Lanes

It's your typical Pop-Rap with some passionless 'fuck-y'all-we've-already-got-more-money-than-you' kind of flow and some sweet production. And this is pretty much all there is to this track. It's as alright as it can be. 3.5/5
12Fort Minor
The Rising Tied


To anyone wondering what would Linkin Park sound had they never met Chester. They'd sound underwhelming. The flow is fine, the lyrics are surprisingly good, although a tad too edgy and the music is, well, it's fine. Everything coming together is just sort of following the line of 'okay'. And that's all there is to it. 3.5/5
11The Black Eyed Peas

Hey Mama

It's strange to think of the times, when BEP weren't godawful, just aggressively generic. Nevertheless, this track has a nice dance-y beat and the rising chorus intensity and its repetition gets stuck in your mind and it sort of forces you to enjoy it. 3.6/5
10Rick Ross
God Forgives, I Don't

So Sophisticated

Rick Ross always seemed to me like one of those people, who has an inherently badass voice and delivery, but this track has only hints of that. Its strengths however are in the catchiness and the production. It is a banger and it knows that fact well. 3.7/5
9Yung Lean
Unknown Memory

Yoshi City

This song's formula is something that on a regular occasion I would dismiss as a completely tedious and obnoxious crap, but for whatever reason, Yung Lean's subtle delivery and the off-kilter production style kept me hooked althroughout the listen. But I would still appreciate some sort of musical variety every now and then, otherwise the track just sort of flows through and all you remember is that it was unusual. 3.7/5
8Soundtrack (Film)
Furious 7

See You Again

Oh that's what this song is. I've heard it around a couple of times, but never bothered to finish my listening or even find out, who's it from. Well, now I know. That singer's vocals are somewhat grading, but the overall execution is quite touching and sweet. I like the production and the beats on here and Wiz Khalifa's flow is surprisingly fitting, even though I always thought that he can't even pull off tracks on his own records. Also, I feel like I just left a coma, cause the video's got a shitload of views and I didn't even know of it. 3.8/5
The Blueprint²: The Gift & the Curse

Meet the Parents

A fine example of Jay-Z's dramatic musical vision with a lot of interesting background instrumental details and pretty good lyrics. 3.8/5
6Gucci Mane
The State vs. Radric Davis


Feel-good, catchy, well-crafted and hip track that might be just the right thing to help me finally understand the Gucci Mane phenomenon. 3.8/5
5Big Sean
Dark Sky Paradise

I Don't Fuck With You

This is that kind of not-serious humorous music Big Sean is really good at. His nonchalant titular explamation will now be stuck in my head for a long time. Besides, E-40's contribution to this track is fire. 3.9/5
4Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa
Mac and Devin Go to High School

Young, Wild and Free

The most feel-good and relaxing track on here. Its cool and hip nature really makes me forget Snoop is pushing 50. And if that isn't the best indicator that their goal was reached, I don't know what is. 3.9/5
3Big Bear
Doin Thangs

No Lies

This is an actually good throwback to the good old days, when Hip-Hop was much more carefree. It's a 4.0/5
Knock Madness

The Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 (not actually on Knock Madness)

This song might have the most impressive streak of lyrical vomit. Hopsin's flow and production are both top-notch, the songwriting is surprisingly moving and the overall overwhelming atmosphere is quite dramatic, but those lyrics, man, they're either the most profound philosophical masterpiece or the most nonsensical verbal rollercoaster. 4/5
Uncle B

You Better Not Waste My Time

Grime's finest (not really). This track is dramatic, emotional and fucking memory-piercing. It has by far the best melody and progression of all the here present tracks. I love the use of multiple MCs and the brilliant production. It's a doozie by all means. anatelier, you've proven your worth. 4.6/5
P.S.: Don't watch the music video, it's the trashiest (and Britishest) thing ever.
