Songs of the Year 2013: 2. Beyoncé – I Been On

That being the H-Town remix, of course. Well, saying of course may be a little unfair, Beyoncé is hot on her own (musically too) but this is fire. Some of the hottest artists from the south jumped on this one; with Bun B leading the charge, this may well be the best pure rap song of the year for me. Normally I check Rap Genius to see if a song has been put up after it drops, and it’s usually there (or thereabouts) — not this time, as sometimes seems to be the case with H-Town tracks — no worries though, I had to jump on that. So check out the lyric page, yeah? Cool.

Other verses from veterans Lil Keke, Scarface, Slim Thug, Willie D and Z-Ro combine to form one of the greatest odes to Houston I’ve heard — the only negative I’m drawing from this is that Chamillionaire the don was omitted from the list. Still, can’t complain too much, he’s had some fire of his own this year. More on that below. Still, for now, enjoy this.
