TEN OF THE BEST: Week 6
TEN OF THE BEST is back for yet another installment and boy is this one a cracker. It was probably the hardest one to compile in a while, and as I write this I’m debating changing a tune or two. I really don’t want to waffle on, so here is this week’s playlist…
Check out the spotify playlist at the bottom of this post:
This weeks playlist, in no particular order:
Show You Off – Wurld X Shizzi X Walshy Fire
The beat on this one is fire, with such an infectious bassline. I honestly can’t praise this tune enough, the production, the vocal delivery, everything is just on point.
No Time – Cali P
Plenty of vibes on this one. On this tune Cali P delivers tight lyrics about grinding hard. Solid tune no doubt.
Five Days – Tarrus Riley X Big Youth X Mr Cheeks
If you ever want a definitive reason why I rate Tarrus so much look no further than this song. Creativity is the name of the game. Also, I grew up on Lost Boyz so the Mr Cheeks feature gives this tune another level for me.
Likes – Chronixx
Jamaica’s golden boy is at his very best on this one. A relevant tune that takes a jab at the whole notion of basing one’s worth on social media likes. Big tune alert!!!
Gucci Ferragamo – Yemi Alade
Not my usual type of tune but I had to consult my good friend Shazam when I saw it tear down a dancefloor right in front of my eyes. The riddim seems to make my blessed sisters move with consummate ease…FORWARD!!!!
Mari Hairambwe – Takura
Though I’m not overly big on trap music, this dude has had me listening to trap on repeat. The title loosely translates to “You don’t turn down money”, and Takura has me wanting to get on the grind with each bar. I must say, I’m a big fan of this guy’s music. The control in his delivery is simply incredible, he is a beast for sure.
Break Away – Jahmiel
Another big tune on a huge riddim, which I featured a few weeks ago with Mascika’s version. Jahmiel offers up the title tune and he certainly doesn’t disappoint. I would seriously suggest listening to the entire riddim, so many nice songs to pick from. How about that hook tho???
Black Woman – Jesse Royal
An ode to all my strong black women out there. The song title reflects the content of this tune. Another big tune from an artist I feel deserves much more accolades than he gets.
That’s Not Me – Skepta X JME
The Adenunga boys bring it on this one. I have had this one on repeat for a while because the concept is solid. Sing along value is there also which adds to the appeal. Pull up my selector!
Nuh Hype – Kabaka Pyramid
Morals riddim in the building. Kabaka delivers in spades on this tune, dropping fire bars on this solid riddim. Big shout out to my brother Razzah for introducing me to the riddim.
Another week done, hope to see you next time…
