Thanksgiving might be right around the corner, but that doesn’t stop the diss tracks from happening. Hip Hop can be thankful for beef, after all, since it keeps things interesting. The list this week has some beefs, remixes, new album leaks, and more. It reflects the shape of things to come as we close out the new year. There is only a month and a half left in 2012, here are some tracks to keep the weeks moving quickly.
J. Cole and Game Drop Album Tracks, Plus Game Brings a Diss
With J. Cole bringing Born Sinner in January, and Game bringing Jesus Piece in December, the album leaks are starting. This week, Cole grabs the #1 slot with “Miss America,” while Game takes #4 with the track “NY Shining.” He shows up again, though, on #7 with his “Cough Up a Lung Freestyle” where he disses Shyne and 40 Glocc. The disses don’t stop there. At #2 Cassidy comes with “The Diary Of a Hustla,” a diss to Meek Mill. Stay tuned for what happens next with these diss tracks.
Kanye West Returns With Another White Dress, A$AP Rocky Stays On Top
Kanye West’s track “White Dress” made its rounds last month, but now an alternate version arrived thanks to RZA. The song hit the #4 spot this week and will probably stick around as long as the original version. Another track with some staying power is A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin Problem” with Drake, 2 Chainz, and Kendrick Lamar. That song has become a Top Singles staple and returns once again this week at #9. Kendrick shows up again to close out the list at #10 with his Lady Gaga version of “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
