Ranking:  :fire:  :shit:

Gorgeous Children – ICE EP. This album was heavily anticipated in the rap underground and it may have even served to surpass the hype I felt for it.

Category: Oh, Kanye…

Ranking: :pray:  :pray:

Mans takes a very banging but very overplayed TNGHT track and makes it into something bigger than it ever could have been. The Kanye effect.

In all honesty this might be my favorite track of the year. Scott my roommate really likes it too.  :thumbsup:

Ranking:  :blue_car:  :oncoming_automobile:   :gun:

The song came out in 2012 but the video is the best thing that happened to us this year Keef-wise.

Category: Best Drake appropriation

Ranking:   :couple:  :two_women_holding_hands:

Like all my obsessions (see: Chief Keef), my infatuation with the Migos started as a funny joke. Fast forward to the point in time wherein this track dropped and watch me eat my hat while truly respecting their hustle.

2013 was a strange year for the Klan. They played Coachella. They had a huge falling out. Mad twitter beef took place. Key stayed cool the whole year though.
