The Tracks We Wore Out

Pitchfork just (somewhat prematurely) released their list of the top 500 tracks of the decade as part of their ongoing P2K: The Decade in Music series. But I guess someone had to kick off the end of the decade lists that are sure to start permeating our lives starting now. Regardless, it’s quite a feat for anyone to take on. When these things do inevitable come around, I love to turn them into playlists for my own bizarre entertainment. You see, I love lists, of any kind really. And these are my favorite kind. So I thought I’d take my playlist of Pitchfork’s top 50 tracks of the decade and put them up here. I’m sure someone will come along and put up all 500 somewhere, but that level of obsessiveness is for another fool to deal with. Enjoy.

Artist: Kaws

kaws_gg

Street artist turned entrepreneur, Kaws is kind of a legend who’s now getting his due as a pop art kingpin. He’s gone from pasting up his memorable characters illegally on street corners to showing in galleries, doing album covers for Kanye West and Clipse, designing blinged out chains for Pharrell and making vinyl toys and clothing through his company OriginalFake. You can buy some of his products at his site Kawsone.

Clipse

the-clipse-fast-life

The Clipse, comprised of two brother from Virginia Beach, Pusha T and Malice, are about the best rap duo out there right now (as is evident by the line up in our mast head “Addicted to the Fly” which is from one of their mixtapes). They have a new album coming out late summer and have been leaking a few tracks from it with cover art by Kaws. Their past two propper albums are packed with sick coke rhymes backed by beats from Pharrell and the Neptunes. They’ve also stayed relevant between releases by dropping about as many mixtapes on us as Lil’ Wayne with their foursome, the Ru-Up Gang. Can’t wait for the new shit to drop.
