With the end of the year almost upon us I was wondering what some of the more hip hop inclined fans thought were the best songs, singles or otherwise, to drop this year. I'll start with three but I'll pop in and out periodically. Honestly, I feel this is a great way to put others on to your favorite artists.

Action Bronson - Midget Cough http://youtu.be/ujOs3-LcGec

Roc Marciano - The Man http://youtu.be/nMHi5ydHB28

Finally the realest dude in rap Sean Price - Bar Barian http://youtu.be/TDfExECG3mU

For those with an eye on the younger MC's here's three that come to mind.

Joey Bada$$ - Waves http://youtu.be/51e1gIkzHgk

Someone barely anyone has heard of Wiki sporting the Anthony Davis unibrow in Pretty Picture http://youtu.be/Y86jsPY-Ry0

Finally out of Detroit Clear Soul Forces - Get No Better http://youtu.be/BWKLuwR_bFw

for Clear Soul Forces... They have a very old school vibe.

I thought about that but since I wanted to keep this more contained to just this year I made the new thread.

Anyone heard of Ab-Soul? I've been told to listen to him because he's supposedly one of the best currently in the game, but haven't gotten the time to yet.

Ab-Soul is another member of Black Hippy (see Kendrick Lamar Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q for the remaining members) who has gone from an after thought to possibly the second best member of the collective. Check him out with Joey Bada$$ on Enter The Void. Ab goes first.

Here is someone who I feel needs much more shine, Kembe X. Coming out of Chicago at only 18 he most definitely one of the best up and coming talents in the windy city. Here's two from Kembe.

Don't Quit http://youtu.be/C_RLSyzKCl8

Sawbuck (New Smoker's Anthem) http://youtu.be/zUxMKZEnxv0

I you like what you hear download his mixtape Self Rule @ http://www.2dopeboyz.com/2011/11/30/kembe-x-self-rule-mixtape/

Joey Bada$$ is badass... incredible flow for such a young kat... Waves is dope... I like the original version better (the version in the video you posted) than the official version on iTunes. I hope Freddie Joachim is getting credit for that beat. If you haven't cop his mixtape 1999, do it...

Black Star - Fix Up - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3ios1f295w Classic ish... word play, the verbal back and forth... these kats can't be touched...

Tab-One & Sunshine J - Caught Up feat. DJ Gonzo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZUQrEfuHpk Love little dig at Jay and West... and he kills the second verse...

I think Nas' album was underrated....

Lupe - (bleep) Bad - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3m3t_PxiUI Nice album...
