If you're looking to find the 10 best hip hop songs of March 2009, then perhaps these ten hip hop jam may just be what you are looking for. Being as someone who's not too keen about what's being churned out in the music industry today, I still do feel obliged to try and inject a little bit of optimism in this subject matter. March 2009 was a blur of auto-tune and uninspiring beats in Hip Hop music, one that seemed to please the ears of many of today's Hip Hop fans.
- "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" by Beyonce. You either love this song or hate it. Whichever you choose, it still remains as the lady's favorite song of choice, especially in night clubs. Not for every lady, but those who actually believe in and abide by the message that is conveyed in this song.
- "Blame It" by Jamie Foxx featuring T-Pain. If the process of getting drunk had a recognizable sound to it, I think it's safe to say that it would sound like something along the lines of Jamie's Foxx's "Blame It" with T-Pain. This sound is all about the wondrous joys of getting loose and free up in the club.
- "Right Round" by Flo Rida. Flo Rida's hook for this song samples that of the 1980s classic "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" by Dead or Alive. It's rather clever how this is incorporated into Flo Rida's "Right Round" which talks of a male developing a crush on a chick at a strip joint.
- "Day N Nite" by Kid Cudi. Many critics and hip hop fans alike have considered Kid Cudi's "Day N Nite" single to be one of the biggest and top songs of 2009. If Jamie Foxx's "Blame It" is what it sounds like to get drunk, then Kid Cudi's "Day N Nite" sounds like someone getting high without a doubt.
- "Turnin' Me On" by Keri Hilson featuring Lil' Wayne. Keri Hilson must have one of the most seductive voices out there in the music industry today, at least in this song she does. Honestly, the song could have fared better without Lil' Wayne's presence as Keri Hilson crafted this hip hop classic together perfectly.
- "Diva" by Beyonce. Sharing many similarities with Lil' Wayne's single "A Milli," Beyonce's "Diva" presents with a moderate tempo/hip hop groove that is ideally fit for both the night club scene as well as the radio. Just throw in some flashing strobe lights and maybe a few fog machines and the mood is set.
- "Crack a Bottle" by Eminem featuring Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. Eminem's "Crack a Bottle with 50 Cent and Dr. Dre is an awesome hip hop collaboration from this trio of industry titans. While the overall production from Dr. Dre is fantastic, the song suffers from a somewhat repetitive hook that loses steam.
- "Boom Boom Pow" by Black Eyed Peas. Could you possibly ask for a more futuristic electronic sound than what is presented in "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas? This wicked style of electro-rap over a fierce electropop/techno beat contains just all of the right ingredients or ear candy.
- "Letter to B.I.G." by Jadakiss. "Letter to B.I.G." by Jadakiss was released on March 9th, 2009, marking the twelfth anniversary of the death of the legendary Notorious B.I.G. As a former label-mate with Notorious B.I.G., Jadakiss' single proves itself as true and sincere devotion to a hip hop superstar.
- "I Get It In" by 50 Cent. Released off of his album, "Before I Self Destruct," 50 Cent's "I Get It In" immediately lures you in with its irresistible uptempo rhythm and drum beat. Despite a rather repetitive loop, "I Get It In" is a short-lived catchy piece of modern-day hip hop nonetheless.
