Big K.R.I.T. - If I Fall (ft. Melanie Fiona)
Ironically the first time I listened to this song I was actually walking along a path that follows a river. I kept If I Fall on repeat for a good 30 minutes, letting the lyrics thoroughly soak into my mind. The profoundness of Big K.R.I.T’s message is amplified through his extremely well written lyrics. You can actually feel the “desperate emotion” radiate from his words and flow. It’s a truly beautiful song that you’ll only fully appreciate once you give it some time and mental investment.
Essentially Big K.R.I.T. depicts multiple scenarios where an individual, due to his actions, feels distant to someone who used to be close (be it a friend, mother, or girlfriend). This individual turns around and sees this emotional distance they unintentionally caused, and asks from the bottom of their heart, ‘through all of this shit, can I still count on you to be there for me in my time of need?’
This is my favorite song off of Big K.R.I.T.’s album Live From The Underground. It stands way above all of the other good songs on the album, such as What U Mean (Ft. Ludacris).
“If I fall by the river bed
Would you save me or leave me dead?
All the blood I shed
And I’ll just rest my head”

Danny Brown - Grown Up
Even though this song is somewhat short, it’s easily Danny Brown’s best song thus far. The beat is phenomenal, and it really captures the reminiscent and personal aura of his lyrics.It goes to show that Danny Brown doesn’t have to utilize a wacky abstract beat to stand out in this overpopulated hip-hop game. He has enough originality to shine over pretty much any beat…everything from his G-Unit sponsored song Trippin’ (ft. Lil B) to his outstanding feature on A-Trak’s electro infused banger Ray Ban Vision (Remix). I’m somewhat excited to see what his next project turns out to be. Danny Brown’s been in the game for some time, but now that he’s getting some real attention he seems more motivated than ever to make truly great hip-hop.

Yelawolf - Gangsta Of Love (ft. CyHi Da Prynce)
This beat is groovy as fuck. I absolutely love it. Not to mention Yelawolf rides it with such a hardass flow, you immediately get the implication “none can fuck with this shit”. Definitely one of my favorite songs by him. I was kind of disappointed by his first album Radioactive (it was a little more poppy than it should’ve been), but I know he’ll eventually put something together that matches his skill level. He’s a talented dude, just not as consistent as he could be. This song was actually supposed to be the first single for Radioactive, but for some reason he dropped it from the album.
