1. Drake – “6PM In New York” (Only Verse)
We know, we already listed Drake twice on our list. But Champagne keeps it too real on this one, way too real to not give proper credit for the sake of diversity. In Drake’s verse (the only verse, and with no hook) on ‘6PM In New York’, 6 God absolutely shits on Young Money label mate, Tyga (who is dating 17 year-old Kylie Jenner). “It’s so childish calling my name on the world’s stage. You need to act your age and not your girl’s age.”
Shots were also (arguably) fired at ‘Money Trees’ rapper Kendrick Lamar as well. “Why you rappin’ like you come from the streets? I got a backyard where money seems to come from the trees” raps Drake. Even without the subliminals, this verse is lengthy but consistently hot from start to finish. This is certainly the hottest verse of the year so far.
Who did we snub? What verse did we give way too much credit too? Let us know on Twitter (@TheEarlyReg).
