3. "Power" by Kanye West

Are you living in the 21st century doing something mean to it? If not, what's stopping you? The world is yours.  

4. "The World Is Yours" by Nas

We're taking it back with some old school Nas. I think many of us could agree that the 90's birthed some of the best music. This song is definitely an anthem so, turn it up and never forget who's world this is!

5. "Collard Greens" by SchoolBoy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar

Veggies are important, yes but, that's not exactly the type of collard greens SchoolBoy Q and Kendrick are talking about in this song. Nonetheless, the two of them on this track is greatness comprised within 5 minutes. 

6. "Make A Toast" by Belly

This entire song is pure greatness, you have to listen to it to understand why though. Belly is one of our favorite artists right now! His lyricism is insane. We couldn't make this playlist without putting him on it. 

7. "For Whom The Bell Tolls" by J. Cole

Most of us can agree that this song should've been much longer because it's that good. No surprise though, Cole only puts out great music. He's a true artist. 

8. "Lullaby" by Belly

Another song off Belly's Mumble Rap album, "Lullaby" made it onto our playlist because his entire album is hot! We encourage you to give all the songs off his album a listen, you won't regret it.

9. "Ville Mentality" by J. Cole

So, when is Cole not rapping facts? One of the things that draw us most to him is how real he is. "Ville Mentality" is only one of many clear representations of his amazing artistry.

10. "Faith" by Kendrick Lamar

We end the playlist with a throwback from none other than K. Dot. "Faith," a rather underrated song holds, much power. If you haven't heard it, now is your chance to.
