The 2011 Finale: The 100 Other Unforgettable Songs We Enjoyed

By 12.31.11

71. Juicy J – “Stoner’s Night — No artist had a stronger resurgence than the Juiceman. Going at it virtually solo, Juicy J turned some of the year’s best get high music, including numbers like the bass-heavy “Stoner’s Night,” which sounds like the dark, filthy material Three 6 made in their early days. (Listen)

73. A$AP Rocky Feat. ScHoolboy Q – “Brand New Guy” — This ScHoolboy Q character seems to be making a habit of stealing the show when he collaborates with his higher profile rap buddies. After his unforgettable presence on more than a few Black Hippy tracks, he dominates H-Town’s current champion (that’s Harlem, not Houston) with aggression and energy, not to mention a touch of humor. The “netflix on your couch/what this popcorn about?” bars get a chuckle out of me every time. (Listen)

74. Mookie Jones – “Everybodi Wanna B Famous” — Young and on the rise? Here is your theme song. (Listen)

75. Fortie Bowie – “Impala” — There isn’t a more aptly named song on the list as this track is perfect for the whip. Cruise the Chevy with pride. (Listen)

76. 2 Chainz Feat. Big K.R.I.T & Bun B – “Pimps” — Whether it was readily apparent or not, the artist formerly known as Tity Boi dominated the “First To Be Called For A Feature” slot previously held by Wayne. How and why? Check the silky smooth “Pimps” and 2 Chainz fluid delivery of lines like “Pull out the garage, hit a button then the top faint, You ain’t from the “A”, all you really did was migrate, Asking me if I’m great, yeah bitch I’m great, Swerving down Peachtree, yeah bitch I’m straight.” (Listen)

77. Dopehead – “Airbags” — Detroit, stand up! (Listen)

78. Phonte – “Who Loves You More” — Exemplary big brother rhymes emanate from the ex-LB member. Phontigallo’s consistent on the mic but his performance on Charity Starts at Home’s finale is easily one of the best records of his career. (Listen | Buy)

79. Future – “Tony Montana” — Al Pacino’s most famous character strikes Hip-Hop again. (Listen)

80. Drake – “Look What You’ve Done” — Criticize the Canuck’s propensity for making sappy songs but “Look What You’ve Done” is one where the overflowing emotions produce a moving piece of music. R.I.P. Static Major. (Listen | Buy)
