The finale of this cheap nostalgia-fest. 30 Legit Jams™ from the year of the Gucci Mane blog post comment section wars. Bit of an anticlimax after the 1989 and 1999 lists, but a not half bad if you're willing to accept that 80% of everything good in 2009 was now on the internet or from some obscure independent album.

Honourable mention of sorts goes to T-Pain & Lil' Wayne's Listen To Me: supposed to drop in 2009 but didn't see the light of day until 2017. G.O.A.T use of the Oompa Loompa song or wot?
Backwudz had the definitive oompa loompa joint, t-wayne prob beats big moe though. The ghost of pimp c called, he wants answers on whether u enjoy slum village aside from elzhi
This is the first one of these that makes me feel old, most these are still regularly in rotation for me lol
Tom Breihan lolol
Add 'Gunplay' by Rick Ross w/ Gunplay
I've never heard a Slum Village song which didn't bore me.
What the hell happened to the whole Huntsville scene anyhow?
Breihan was the Velvet Underground of indie guy rap bloggers. Everyone who read Status Ain't Hood went out and created their own Status Ain't Hood. Now we're here.
😃 That's the realest shit you ever wrote, SE.
Like a dad, like i'm rad, like i'm Brad, like i'm Chad
Oh man this list is really taking me back to another time and place. I was bumping Diamonds and Cadillacs non-stop that year! Now I'm curious to see what Jackie Chain has been up to over the last half-decade or so lol
I made a best of Jackie Chain playlist a few years ago. Audiomack has fucked up the track titles with the guests now, but the playlist still jams.
I think he gave up Rap and moved to Cali to become a weed farmer.
Another cool year, I love that Quick & Kurupt album, so good. Same for The Jacka's Teargas.
Juicy J released his best solo album in 2009: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l3XTHdURFA
And I know you're not into Freddie Gibbs but his midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmusic also had quite a few jams on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9M9MFe-kho
I'd probably put a couple other songs from that year on my own list:
Slim Thug & half of the Houston rap scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XBn83tVJqM
OJ Da Juiceman - Burr Beer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsjrBa_hx6E (those ad-libs man!)
Blaq Poet - Ain't Nuttin' Change: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNesrbQ-Bm0
Illa Gee ft Prodigy - Walk With A Shotgun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu_CN0rl2WY
Blaq Poet 👌
This was the year I got back into rap music after a long hiatus - so I love this list.
My small contribution is to suggest ppl dig out Cam'ron and Vado's "Ric Flair".
My contribution is Young Dro “All That Money” the original mixtape version. Favorite use of the “Moments In Love” sample by a rapper and I can’t believe it wasn’t a single.
