1. Second Place – Royce da 5’9″

4. Nasty – Nas
5. Legendary – Royce da 5’9″
6. High (Featuring Wiz Khalifa & Chiddy Bang) – Big Sean
7. She Don’t Want A Man – Curren$y
-My favorite track off of Weekend At Burnies, great video too.
8. Penny Hardaway (Featuring Ghostface Killah) – The Cool Kids
-Mikey and Chuck straight killin it with the Ghostface feature and an overall dope track.
9. A Kiss – Eminem & Royce da 5’9″
10. Jaws – Greneberg (Roc Marciano, Oh No & The Alchemist)
