HHNM 2013 Year-End List: Most Underrated & Most Disappointing Songs



Eminem – ‘Love Game’ (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

mmlp2 deluxe frontThey trolled us.






Rick Ross – ‘Devil Is A Lie’ (Feat. Jay Z)

rick ross devil is a lieAfter weeks of hype and anticipation, Rick Ross released his Jay Z-assisted single ‘Devil Is A Lie’ last month to a mostly positive response but we are not feeling this one. ‘F**kwithmeyouknowigotit’ was one of the hottest records of last year so a lukewarm follow up like ‘Devil’ make it sound even worse. Ross isn’t making much sense with his verse and the below average hook made matters worse. Hov’s clever words weren’t enough to save this.



DJ Khaled – ‘No New Friends’ (Feat. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne)

no new friendsThe first problem about this song is that we’ve heard this combination of artists in one way or another a million times now so the excitement was no longer there when we clicked play. On top of that, when you label it as “Started From The Bottom Remix’, the expectations go even higher and after hearing the song a few times, our hopes came down crashing. Even Drizzy’s magic couldn’t save this one.



DJ Khaled – ‘I Wanna Be With You’ (Feat. Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross & Future)

IFWT_djkhaled1Having big names on the same song is not always advantageous and Khaled has definitely learned his lesson lately. Before it was yet to be released, Khaled described it as the “biggest song” but reality was that it featured some ordinary verses and a forced off-scale hook from Future. No surprise that it went off-scale on the charts too.


2 Chainz – ‘Netflix’ (Feat. Fergie)

boats 2 me timeOur eyes lit up when we heard Fergie is going to be the guest artist on 2 Chainz’ ‘Netflix’, the promo single from his sophomore album B.O.A.T.S. II: MEtime as it had been a long time since we heard the Black Eyed Peas singer on a Rap song. The track unfortunately ended up being mediocre as hell.

  • 50 cent?



  • Q

    gladto see 50 getting some recognition. song was FIRE

  • Vintage Chi-town Soul

    This site, outside of thisis50.com, is pretty much the last bastion of 50 Cent standom in the rap media ahhaha…the navjosh guy probably still wears the g-unit brassiere tank tops

  • jamie

    list is nice… yeah, “we up” was good..

    “no new friends” is dope tho.

  • LOl

    Nav50.. i mean NavJosh with his typically 50 Cent picks smh

  • MGZ

    wow these commenters talkin bout fif def proves he’s still relevant as fuck lol.

  • Zack

    Only thing i dont disagree with here is Love Game. Incredibly toung in cheek, but i liked it haha!

    Memories Back Then is amazing, should have gotten more recognition!

  • Fif Haters Everywhere

    why do people hate on 50? makes no sense.. hes a genius. haters gonna hate… n they proud tho? 2014 SMH

  • RealNinja

    Yall MFs lame if yall don’t think “We Up” is dope. It was different sonically than everything that was and is out and not to mention the bars a flow 50 had was dope.

    @HHNM I gotta disagree for the 1st time. I didn’t like the premise of the song cuz your network can determine your net worth so ain’t nothing wrong with gaining new friends as long as they mean well and can add positivity to your life BUT the song sounded good and banged so I fucked w/ it. Plus I believe it came out before “Started From The Bottom” so this was actually “Started From The Bottom Pt. 1”

    I gotta check out that “Headlights” joint from EM cuz I only heard some of the album and didn’t feel what I heard.

    Real good lists so far, can’t wait to see what’s next.

  • iknow

    underrated songs list is so fuckin on point!! but yall being too harsh on khaled LOL

  • @…, Vintage Chi-town Soul, LOl: Let me guess! Back in between 2003 and 2006 you were dickridin’ 50, then the media campaign (BAN 50, SAVE THE KIDS!) and people like Q & Elliott Wilson told you to start hatin’ 50 and everything he does cause that’s what’ll make you the cool kid, and if you don’t hate him, y’all are a bunch of losers. Am I right?
