10. Migos, feat. Drake – "Versace (Remix)"
8. Tree - "The King"
Royalty has long been a hip-hop playing card. On "The King," New Orleans rapper Tree takes his turn on the throne, graciously saddling a syncopated beat. King him now.
3. Pusha T - "Numbers on the Boards"
It starts with the beat. It's sparse and steely, and by the time Pusha T's voice comes on, you're already hooked. Maybe because Pusha is cognizant of the omnipresent competition, he's sharp and focused throughout. One of the most vicious anthems of the year.
