99. Charles Hamilton, "Brooklyn Girls" (2008)
Heat-seeking Harlem MC Charles Hamilton have been as big as his peers Kid Cudi and Drake by now, if only he knew how to play the game better (his career took a sudden nosedive almost as soon as it took off, following a much-YouTubed clip titled "Gets punched in face by a girl"). Of course, Hamilton's authenticity, wit, and playfulness are exactly what make him extraordinary, as exemplified on nabe anthem "Brooklyn Girls"—a cut that makes most Brooklyn ladies want to give him a smooch instead of a knuckle sandwich.
