Here are the Top Hip Hop Songs for July 2011 (specifically as of July 9, 2011) that I listed for the people. It’s been a whole month since I’ve done a list of the top hip hop music or rap music songs for the people (see: Top Hip Hop Songs for June 2011). I think that I’ve got a really solid balance between underground, mainstream, and emerging artists. In my list, I gravitate towards what I think are the best songs and I base my choices on a combination of factors. Too many people these days think that music is all about lyrics, and that’s just not true.
There are plenty of lyrical artists out there who cannot get a good beat to save their asses. Additionally, there are artists that are lyrical, but don’t have a catchy melody that’s easy for people to understand. There are also artists out there that get awesome beats, but cannot rap their way out of a wet paper bag. Anyways, here goes the top hip hop tracks for July 2011 as of today (July 9th).
1. A.D.H.D. – Kendrick Lamar
This track is off of the Kendrick Lamar Section.80 album which is in stores now. The album is a classic, and although I was debating on whether or not I should put “Ronald Reagan Era” up here, I think I’ll save it for my next list. A.D.H.D. was my favorite track off of the album, and I love when Kendrick says “fuck dot/dat” in the chorus. I know dude has been solid from the get-go, but he really stepped his game up since he first started. I’m not going to dickride though like the other bloggers and just say that he’s the best artist in the digital age. No doubt he’s great though, that’s why I have him with the top track (Top Dawg Entertainment stand up)! Click here to read more.. »Tweet
