    I rep west but this nowhere near his best work ...preme give the right artist their props ...not an accurate Account of who should be on top that pusha t Numbers on the boards

  • jack johnson

    From seeing his other lists, I know he has an odd taste. He think he said his favorite Wu-Tang song was Shame On A Nigga, most people wouldn't have that as their favorite but thats exactly the type of songs he likes. I knew he'd like that Hardest by P-Money & MOP, thats exactly the kinda songs he likes as well

    too much respect for Preem but yeah, this list is no bueno...just peeped the jack frost track...what the f$$$ is up with the drunk broad rambling in another language midway thru the song. He must be is average at best on a day I'm feeling good enough to do volunteer work....De La's Get Away is the sh*t tho

    that Jakk Frost is not bad but this is not the best song of 2013...i would say Tech N9ne feat Kendrick Lamar - Fragile is the best song of 2013...fuck it my opinion

  • Big 18th Street Gang, E'z up!

    The only GOOD joint on that list is De La's "Get Away" joint. The rest are SHIT! Also, what's with all these stupid ass rap names nowadays... "Durag Dynasty", "Dawhud", "Jakk Frost", "H.Stax" etc.. Fuck outta here with your faggot ass names, you clown ass bitches.
