2009 Songs Of The Year (Staff Picks)

So here we are again. No voting. No debates. Just each staff member picking their 5 favorite songs of 2009. It seems that “Empire State Of Mind” by Jay-Z & Alicia Keys was popular with the crew as was “Forever” by Drake, Weezy, Kanye, & Em. There’s some Raekwon, some Rick Ross, and even CunninLynguists on this list. But for some strange reason, Waka Flocka Flame appears here too… Blame King Jerm. – B-Easy
