Chamillionaire. The forgotten superstar. While most have dismissed this guy as a threat soon after “Ridin” stopped getting airtime, those who stuck with him know. As Rap Genius’ top scholar for King Koopa, as well as him still being my favourite rapper, I had to throw him in here somewhere. While I’ve felt many of his tracks this year, “Slow Loud & Bangin” was on top of the heap for me.
Not my favourite track of the year, as evident by this list, but a very, very strong one — such a chill one which can take all your worries away, as well as throwing in some beautiful H-Town effects at the end. Honestly, if you haven’t heard it, get on to it, it’s a big track. Check out his other releases this year too — Elevate and Reignfall, as well as last years’ Ammunition — you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
