End of the Year Urban Awards Part 2: Song of the Year

Similar to last year, we have asked our DJs and Urban department music heads to select their favorites of this year for 7 different categories. We will be logging the results throughout the next few days in the following parts:

 

Part 1: Best Album (12.30.16-AM)

Part 2: Song of the Year (12.30.16 – PM)

Part 3: Best Music Video/ Best New Artist/ Best Bay Area Album/Producer of the Year/ Best Live Performance  (12.30.16)

 

This year was an amazing year musically with artists such as Isaiah Rashad, Mick Jenkins, Schoolboy Q, Anderson.Paak, Mac Miller,  Chance the Rapper all dropping well-received albums, and similarly Bay Area artists Rexx Life Raj, Caleborate, Traxamillion, Elujay, Jetpack Jones & Tone Oliver and others dropping some of their best work yet. Combine these with other notable projects from artists such as Chuuwee & Trizz, Noname, Bas, and countless others, and we realized we had our work cut out for us.  We also witnessed veterans A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Royce Da 5’9, Masta Ace and others dropping projects that exceeded expectations, which were pretty high to begin with. Before we dive into our team’s selections, check out the contributors below:

Elujay’s “Respirate/Atlas” is one of the standout tracks off Jentrify, which was an an amazing debut for the young artist out of Oakland.

  • #4 on Dee Mobby’s Top 20
  • #6 on Phinite’s Top 20
  • #15 on StrongArm’s Top 20

9. Mick Jenkins – Spread Love

Produced by: Sango

Mick Jenkins is another artist who made some very honest music in 2016 that resonated with many hip-hop fans. On “Spread Love” he has a great message, which combined with Sango’s infectious production and Mick’s ability to create harmonies while still gassin lyrics.

  • #8 on Dee Mobby’s Top 20

  • #2 on StrongArm’s Top 20
  • #4 on LaTOR’s Top 20
  • #13 on Debo’s Top 20

7. Chuuwee & Trizz – Location, Location (feat. Sahtyre) 

Produced by: Montage

Besides the fact that several of our jurors including myself are in this music video, this was one of the most played tracks on KSJS this year, and given that all 3 artists spit some of their most memorable verses on this track (which if you follow these guys, you know is a big deal since they are all great lyricists, respectively). From Trizz’s laid-back gangsta cadence, to Chuuwee switching up his flow and Sahtyre’s bars with even more shock value than usual, this track is one that several of our crew found to be outstanding.

  • #8 on LaTOR’s Top 20
  • #9 on Shiva Diva’s Top 20
  • #14 on Ghoulboy’s Top 20
  • #17 on Dee Mobby’s Top 20

6. Kaytranada – Got It Good (feat. Craig David)

Produced by: Kaytranada

Kaytranada’s standout track marked the first time many of us heard or bumped Craig David in ages. The track is smooth, well written and another example of Kaytranada’s unique talent.

  • #1 on StrongArm’s Top 20
  • #1 on Shiva Diva’s Top 20
  • #8 on DJ Llama’s Top 20

5. Rexx Life Raj – Handheld GPS 

Produced by: JULiA LEWiS

The stand-out track from Rexx Life Raj’s Father Figure LP has garnered praise from all kinds of industry artists from Kehlani to Russ. The track is unique and a great example of Rexx’s ability to make thought-provoking and extremely melodic music that is honest and people have identified with.

  • #2 on Ghoulboy’s Top 20
  • #3 on DJ Llama’s Top 20
  • #3 on StrongArm’s Top 20

4. Rexx Life Raj – Running Man

Produced by: Mike Gao

Rexx goes back-to-back with this joint which is the type of track you will catch yourself singing at work or while you are running errands (S/o Analogue). The track was Rexx’s first solo release after dropping

  • #1 on Abeltron’s Top 20
  • #6 on Dee Mobby’s Top 20

3. Traxamillion – Days Inn (feat. City Shawn)

Produced by: Traxamillion

Traxamillion had a great year in 2016 dropping The Trap Addict EP and The Tech Boom LP, which boasted 16 tracks with some of San Jose’s dopest emcees and vocalists over Trax’s signature production. The most popular song on the album was undoubtedly “Days Inn” featuring City Shawn, who seemed his most comfortable on the banger. City’s flows and memorable lines combine well with Trax’s addicting basslines to provide for San Jose’s most infectious anthem of 2016.

  • #4 on Ghoulboy’s Top 20
  • #5 on Abeltron’s Top 20

2. Isaiah Rashad – 4r Da Squaw

Produced by: FrancisGotHeat

Isaiah Rashad’s 4r Da Squaw is a unique track which is a great representation of The Sun’s Tirade, which was our crew’s selection for #1 hip-hop album of the year. The track sees him speaking on some very relatable subjects and the video further highlights these ideals.

  • #1 on The Barhemian’s Top 20
  • #4 on Abeltron’s Top 20
  • #5 on LaTOR’s Top 20
  • #12 on StrongArm’s Top 20

  • Hit #5 on KSJS Urban Top 40 on November 7th, 2016

1. Cal-A – Broke No More (feat. Rexx Life, Jay Ant & Caleborate)

Produced by: Cal-A

 

It was pretty much clear that this amazing Bay Area collaboration was the most popular song of 2016 amongst our crew. It was the only song that was voted as #1 song of the year by multiple crew members, and not 2 or 3, but FOUR different people thought this was the best song of the year. Cal-A taps Bay Rexx Life Raj, Jay Ant and Caleborate for 3 fire verses and Raj and Caleborate who both had massive achievements in 2016 take turns rapping/harmonizing the catchy hook, which is something everyone can relate to. Ain’t nobody trying to be broke in 2017, thats for sure.

  • #1 Dee Mobby’s Top 20
  • #1 on DJ Llama’s Top 20
  • #1 on Debo’s Top 20
  • #1 on Ghoulboy’s Top 20 (this guy is obsessed with this song)
  • #13 on LaTOR’s Top 20
  • Hit #1 on KSJS Urban Top 40 on November 2nd, 2016

 

 

Well thats the top 50 songs as decided by our crew however since we are in the giving mood, we are going to list tracks that were voted in our respective crew member’s Top 20 songs of the year which didn’t make our collective Top 50 above. There are no embeds for the honorable mentions as we think the 50 above are more than enough and don’t want this post to take any longer to load for ya’ll than it already does. We are listing these songs though in order to recognize them so please do google them n check them out as they are definitely worth your time!
