There is no doubt about it; a lot of well-rounded singles dropped this week. It was a playground for the new jacks, veterans, and indie kings. However, it’s also indicative of the fast turnaround for top singles. Take last week for example. Snoop Dogg sat at the top of the hill with his “Stoner’s Anthem,” Joell Ortiz came in second with “The Motto Freestyle,” and J.Cole had “Visionz Of Home.” While people like J.Cole, Wiz Khalifa, and Tyga still showed up for the party this week, there are many new faces. It’s amazing what a difference a week makes.
Rick Ross Gets Another Round, Nas Is The Don, Both Play Doubles
Rick Ross was the winner this week with his MMG cut “Another Round Rmx.” He’s joined by Wale and Stalley, and the cut skyrocketed to the top of the list. So that hit at #1. Second place? Nas’ “The Don.” The Heavy D, Salaam Remi, and Da Internz-produced track leaked toward the end of the week, and within hours became one of the top tracks on the site. Both Rawse and Nas showed up as cameos too. At #6, Rick Ross jumps on Wiz Khalifa’s “Never Been Part II” featuring Wiz’s fiance Amber Rose. Did the track make the list because of Wiz, Rozay, or Rose? You decide. As for Nas, he’s been quite the fixture on the list thanks to the Tyga track “Kings & Queens.” Wale was on that one too and it shows up at #9 on the list. J.Cole closed the list out at #10 with “Grew Up Fast.” While “Visionz Of Home” leaked after this track, the fans have spoken and they know which they liked best.
Machine Gun Kelly Has Alot of Friends, Cam’Ron Has a Message
There’s no doubt about it. Machine Gun Kelly is a wild boy. He’s so wild that he enlisted six friends for the remix to “Wild Boy” which hit the #3 spot this week. MGK brought out Steve-O, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Mystikal, French Montana, and Yo Gotti. That’s alot of people. The Bad Boy young gun can stand on his own two when it comes to tracks, but it’s always good to have some strong back up. Meanwhile, Cam’Ron has quite the profane message: “F**k You.” While Cam gears for another round of Killa Season, this new track came out for Killa Cam fans. That one reached #5. In between was a Statik Selektah-produced snippet from Obie Trice. While Trice just dropped Watch the Chrome, the probable cause of such a successful snippet as “Richard” was the cameo from Eminem. Wait until this track surfaces in its entirety.
