OMFG The Hype Floats Top 50 Countdown Starts TOMORROW!

November 30, 2009

I know you all have been waiting on the edge of your seat for the official Hype Floats Top 50 Countdown of 2009.  Well tomorrow is the big day.  It took me like 50 hours to schedule all the shit and get everything set up so you’re going to appreciate it and love it. 

Two songs will post every day: one at 12 Noon and 12 Midnight.  If you do the math carry the 1 that leads to the #1 song of 2009 going up at Midnight on Christmas Eve.  Awesome!

This is not like a radio countdown or an iTunes countdown.   It’s not the most popular songs on the charts.  Most of these songs never even hit the radio.  The criteria was simple: my favorite songs, the most popular songs at pregames, and the songs that really defined Hype Floats and One Night In Bangkok.  You won’t see like “Empire State Of Mind” or “Best I Ever Had” because even though we probably broke those songs, they just got way too big for a little old blog like this.

Nike Air Max 90 iD Pigeon

November 30, 2009

If these shoes don’t cause an instantaneous sensation of excitement and fear that you might have an uncontrollable bowel movement, then you should go see a gastroentorologist. These Pigeon 90s were fashioned after the Pigeon Dunks which were THE sneaker to own in 2005 and caused a riot in front of The Reed Space where 20 of the 150 pairs were released. The shoes above were supposedly crafted on Nike iD which I find a bit fishy because there is no option for an SB tongue, which is what the shoes above sport on a pair of Air Max 90s. In any case I’ll be trying to replicate these on Nike iD for the next 72 hours, so wish me luck. Also as an added bonus for being on Hype Floats, enjoy the video below where the CBS newscasters embarrass themselves with shameless puns. Not one anchor from the 2005 newscast remains on air today….coincidence, I think not.

Chip Tha Ripper: Fat Raps feat. Big Sean & Curren$y

November 30, 2009

It looks like Chip Tha Ripper cartoonized some of his facebook friends with an equally cool picture but paltry song in comparison.

30 Seconds To Mars: Hurricane (feat. Kanye West)

November 29, 2009

Don’t ask me what the deal is with this song.  Just your run of the mill heavy rockers adding Kanye to the track.  Bingo!

Timbaland: The One I Love (Maniac) [feat. Keri Hilson, DOE, and Chris Brown)

November 29, 2009

Funny story about this song.  While this version may be “featuring Chris Brown” you won’t see Breezy on the official Shock Value II track because Timbo thought it would be a bad idea to have that chick beating dickhead on a track called “Maniac.”  True story.

Chip Tha Ripper: Get Down

November 28, 2009

This is an automatic download for me due to the creative colorful album art. I don’t know much about Chip except that he hails from international hot spot Cleveland, and he’s done some work with the Man on the Moon. This song is off his forthright Mixtape, The Cleveland Show, which we will bring to you promptly when it drops December 1. For more information on Chip as well as a few other HypeFloats Co-Signees, check out Complex’s 10 Most Underrated here. With a Boobie Gibson shoutout, how can you go wrong.

DJ Khaled McDonalds Commerical

November 28, 2009

If you cringe as much as I do every time DJ Khaled is allowed to command the microphone and sanctimoniously claim that he is in fact the best, then this commercial will make you smile. To quell any confusion, the overweight DJ is the man pictured to the left, and the link below will allow you the privilege of hearing him shamelessly pedal the McCafe for more dollars than I’ll smell in a year. Listen/WhyWouldYouDownload here.

Be thankful that you’re not one of those dopes in the headress, and if you happen to be reading this on a reservation sorry for our high-socked ancestors. Oh you can be thankful for a new mixtape from Lupe.
