The Best List Of The Year-End Lists (Part II)

This is Part II from this series.

The almighty Noz of Cocaine Blunts dropped his year-end rap singles list (40-1). Here's the Top 10 from his tally.

Best Rap 2007: You know the drill. One record per artist. Usually singles, occasionally strong album tracks. If you disagree, then you're wrong.

01. UGK (F/ OutKast) -- "International Players Anthem" (Jive)
02. Playaz Circle (F/ Lil Wayne) -- "Duffle Bag Boy" (DTP/Def Jam)
03. Ghostface (F/ Styles P & Beanie Sigel) -- "Barrell Brothers" (Mixtape)
04. Dude N 'Em -- "Watch My Feet" (TVT)
05. Kanye West -- "Can't Tell Me Nothing" (Roc-a-fella/Def Jam)
06. Scarface -- "Who Do You Believe In?" (Rap-a-Lot)
07. Devin The Dude (F/ Andre 3000 & Snoop Dogg) -- "What a Job" (Rap-A-Lot)
08. Lil Jon (F/ Fabo & Gucci Mane) -- "I'm a J (Remix)" (Mixtape)
09. Lil Wayne -- "La La" (Mixtape)
10. J Dilla -- "Wild" (Stones Throw)

Noz has some nice picks listed here, but I have to add my two cents to his roundup. So here are a few of my favorite rap tracks in 2007:

Styles P (F/ Ghostface Killah) -- "Star of the State" (Koch)
Common -- "Misunderstood" (Geffen)
Black Milk -- "Three+Sum" (Fat Beats)
Mims -- "This Is Why I'm Hot" (Capitol)
-- Don't front, you like this song, too
