Since my thermometer is finally crackin’ 70 this week, I thought it might be time to throw together a mix for the summer. Lets do it the right way though. 10 volumes from here to September, 16 tracks per clip. Somethin’ for your car, somethin’ for your hangout spot, or just somethin’ for you to chill to. Our A-Alike blog TROY runs a series called “Sounds like the 90s,” so we’re gonna call this one “Sounds Like Summer.” Volume uno below.

One of the best songs of ’09 finally gets a video. Now drop the album already! –Philaflava

Philaflava’s Favorites of 2009

Before we get started let’s clear a few things up first. This is no way a BEST of 2009 list.

I tried to limit the amount of time an artist appeared but it was impossible to do with Raekwon. While he might not have been the best rapper this year, he gave us the best material. He had tons of guest spots, a stellar album and was hands down the most intricate part of Hip-Hop in 2009.

I also had to give Big Boi a nod on my favorite rapper list because you can’t two drop of the best singles of the year and not make it. 2010 is looking pretty promising with the return of OutKast, The Roots, Blu and the Wu-Massacre. New albums from Pill, Curren$y, Yela Wolf, Jay Electronica, and Freddie Gibbs to name a few. When you look back at ’09 you won’t find that many amazing moments, but if you look closely you’ll find a ton of dope tracks you can’t deny. Not the best year in the decade but certainly not the worst either. Check back tomorrow for a list of my 200 favorite tracks of 2009. –Philaflava

No links. No embedded clips. These are just my thoughts, yo! –Philaflava

(Amerie has noting to do with this post. I just like to look at her)

10. This years version of Blu (every blogs favorite rapper) is Freddie Gibbs. Pill made noise too but he’ll probably be next years Freddie Gibbs once the others catch on.

09. Cam’Ron better bring it this year and stop being chintzy with beats. Nobody wants to hear him rap over generic beats again. Save that for Hell Rell.

08. Anyone else feel bad that Dres from Black Sheep now has to go by “Black Sheep Dres” to make a comeback? Sad when you think about it. Remember when Blahzay Blahzay’s OutLoud tried to make a comeback a few years ago and renamed himself “Blahzay Blah?”

07. Rappers should take cues from MF Doom. Don’t Seth Rogen yourself. Disappear for a few years and then comeback with heat.

06. Ras Kass just doesn’t get it. He never will.

05. If Gang Starr is never going to happen can Premier at least link up with somebody that won’t waste his beats? How about an entire album with Devin The Dude or even Cormega?

04. Jadakiss will never drop an album that matches his potential. He will always be a guest appearance guy.
 

03. Tiger Woods will be the most name-dropped athlete in 2010 and if I was a betting man Budden will probably reference him first.

02. The new Clipse album Til the Casket Drops is not that good. It contains unnecessary hooks, dumb downed lyrics and Timberland knock-off beats. Rick Rubin never would have allowed this album to come out. Pharrell did not bring it, Khalil did.

01. For a guy who hasn’t dropped an album in years, it’s pretty impressive that Big Boi has managed to make the best songs for the last two years (Royal Flush, Shine Blockas, Fo Yo Sorrows)
