Dshaq’s Top 10 of 2011

Posted by on January 11, 2012

2011 was a big year. I started blogging, I got accepted into college, all that good stuff. It was pretty tough going through the iTunes library and narrowing down the choices to just these 10 but I’m pretty happy with it and hopefully it’s a crowd pleaser. Without further ado here is my top 10 of 2011.

10. Lets just say had this song not come out I probably would not like Skizzy Mars as much as I do. This was the first song I heard by Skizzy and his wordplay and unique sound got me hooked.
Skizzy Mars – Douchebag

9.Out of Mac’s 2 mixtapes, album, and EP he released this year, I’m going away from those and with the under the radar track that he did with DJ Premier. This beat alone probably could’ve made the list but Mac spits some quality bars over it.
Mac Miller – Face The Facts

8. This song was literally on repeat all summer…and still is today.
Aer – Feel I Bring

7. I had no idea that my favorite character on Community was able to spit fire like this. I mean the beat is insane but his wordplay is even crazier. Excited to see more from Mr. Glover in 2012
Childish Gambino – Freaks and Geeks

6. This song is pure happiness. I don’t know how else to explain it except that this beat is mesmerizing.
Neon Indian – Polish Girl

5. I don’t know what I enjoy more in this song either the beat or his voice. It’s such a powerful and dark song.
The Weeknd – Wicked Games

4. Macklemore’s ability to tell a story through his lyrics is mind-boggling good. The emotion in this song pours out line by line.
Macklemore – Wings

3. This song alone made me really appreciate Frank Ocean as an artist and also dabble into his other music, which thank god i did.
Frank Ocean – Novacane

2. Ever since A$AP released that mixtape, I honestly can’t go a day without listening to it. This song in particularly, especially with his flow and lyrics in it.
A$AP Rocky – Peso (Prod. By ASAP Ty Beats)

1. Well where do I begin on this one. 2011 was a big year for Tyler and the GOLF WANG. He supplied us with hands down the best Nardwuar Interview, a phenomenal album and countless other funny outbursts that kept us entertained. Although I love this beat and Tyler’s lyrics, I think the video might be even better and it definitely helped create the buzz that really got them on the main stage. I’m really excited to see what’s in store from the Golf Wang hooligans in 2012, especially if Earl comes back.
Tyler, The Creator – Yonkers
