100 Great Chicago Rap Songs Of 2012

FSD STAFF 26

3. Chief Keef “I Don’t Like” / Chief Keef f/ Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T & Jadakiss “I Don’t Like (Remix)”
Producer: Young Chop (Original), Young Chop & Kanye West (Remix)
Album: Back From The Dead

What can be said about “I Don’t Like” and its remix that hasn’t already been said a thousand times? It’s hands down the most popular Chicago rap song this year (that had no label push at the time), and has left hundreds of freestyles and Keef copycats in its wake. It’s hard to measure its exact impact, but this record gets burn across the country from Cali to the Big Apple. The chorus is addictive, and fun to yell out after a few drinks.

The record was so big that it prompted Chicago’s biggest rap artist ever to jump on the remix, and bring his G.O.O.D. Music cronies and Jada’s new caesar along for the ride. Keef was already on his way to stardom, but this remix certainly fast-tracked Keef’s trajectory. In the words of Hawk Harrelson, “he gone.”

    You gotta be kidding me with this click-bait bullshit fam. At least give me the OPTION to view it as a list. I honestly thought this was a real nigga site and you over doing this shit. DISAPPOINTED AND DEF NOT READING THIS FUCKASS ARTICLE CUZ OF THIS.

  2. LaTrice

    Who in the hell came up with this list? You have a lot of unknown and don’t deserve to be up here songs and S.Dot songs not on here…A lie!!

  3. BiggiesWarning

    I gave up after 10 clicks. The energy wasted just clicking on this doesn’t rectify the amount of snoozers listed. If the top ten listed here is supposed to be the best we had to offer then Chicago had a pretty mediocre year.

    100 OF THE MOST TRASH BAG ASS RAPPERS CHICAGO HAS TO OFFER. I’m glad this coonery ass foolery hasn’t hit the airwaves cause it’s already saturated enough with this trash.

  8. MyHonestOpinion

    I must say, I spent a LONG time listening to all these artists to be on a fair note before commenting, but I must say, 80% of this list is hot garbage, just my opinion. I am 100% for indie artists but if you’re putting in that much time to make music, please come with a little more substance! Even if you’re rocking your party anthems or trapping out, you can still come with something a bit more well rounded and thought out. I’ve heard a shit load of amazing indie artists out of Chicago this year and I’m sad to see that literally two or three of them are on this list

  9. PoPimp85

    I’m bias to begin with, because I grew up on CWAL and Chicago music of the same in the mid 90’s to early 2000’s. So, it’s immediately hard for me to enjoy most of this music, but there are some gems from time to time, so I give it a listen. But, this list, and 99.9% of the tracks on this list were garbage in my opinion. They pretty much all sound the same with no substance. I don’t know what happened to Chicago rap/hip hop, but I want it back.

  10. Boogie

    What a fuckin joke of a list. It should’ve been called “the latest ignorant chi-town ghetto bullshit” list. How can you listen to this trash?

    • Sounds interesting i hope this label makes it far its this kid from Chicago that goes by the name of pharoah he doesn’t have much publicity but is one of the most lyrical and talented artist iv’e heard from chicago yet i really think he’s going to be one of the greats i slipped up on some of his music on YouTube would you like me to send a link ?
