Ain't gon' lie, there's actually 19 songs in this list. Pick me a 20th with a non-2020 song you've discovered in 2020.
Cuzzin by Messy Marv.
I know that already. But great song.
Lost Boyz 'Music Makes Me High' (Frankie Cutlass remix)
my favorite 2020 late pass is super obscure
surprised that the monie love joint didn't get a lot of uk burn
Lady Wray - Piece of Me
Feelin' all those and hadn't heard any of 'em before.
I only knew Monie's singles back in't day. Didn't check out her first album until a couple of weeks back.
ODB - Lyrical Virus
Title doesn't ring a bell. Will check it later.
Kinda cheatin because I discovered that one late 2019:
Mack The Jack'a - Doing Dirt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOhyJAC5IAw
I had a time period at work in december were I fell down in a hole of early 90's tapes from Flint/Saginaw/Upper Michigan, thanks to that youtube channel as well as various uploads from hotboxsocial and old comps from Chicken N Kalinka, but that song is probably the highlight of it.
As a general rule of thumb, you can't go wrong with rap songs titled Doin ' Dirt.
slap n da trunk... unbelievable knock, that's Roblo for you too though, hugely underrated producer.
A not so thinly-veiled A-Wax dis song too.
