2. Bishop Lamont - Grow Up
Definetly not what anybody was expecting but that's the type of rapper Bishop is. A single with actual substance, telling every rapper what we always say: to show growth, stop with the pety beefs and release quality hip-hop music; to grow up. Bishop could've went the safe rout and dropped a club or a chick singer but he took a chance and went out of the box. I smell a simillar outcome as Chamillionare had with Ultimate Victory, so Bishop is probably gonna get dropped. Dre delivered a beat with some fly guitars, polished piano and those big clapping drums. However, you can tell that the track wasn't completley finished (confirmed from Bishop and Dre), so again thanks to Matty for improving the quality.

BULLSHIT!

They would not have mass e-mailed the song if it wasn't completely finished. Shit, they even put out the instrumental. If you believe that it wasn't finished, then I don't know...

That's exactly why I asked the question...it seems like some internet nerds really believe anything artists (or better said themselves) want them to believe, you know like "Ow Grow Up was already awesome, but it wasn't finished yet...imagine what it would sound like if it was finished...and people...if you're disappointed by this song, please don't give up.... detox will sound better...cuz then it will be finished"

That instrumental was just a loop Mauzip, if not send it to me. The sound quality is also really low that's why I said that it doesn't sound finished. Here's where Dre said it: http://www.dubcnn.com/connect/index.php?topic=190568.msg1945974#msg1945974

And now I'm not sure if it was Dae One who is Bishop's close producer or Bishop himself said it in an interview that they leaked that track themselves without approval of Jimmy and Dre, like 50 does. I can't find it since the search function is fucked up.

95% of all Dr. Dre instrumentals sound like loops, lol. The instrumental was sent out by the people Bishop works with. They wouldn't put out unfinished track and if they would, Bishop Lamont is the biggest fuck up on Aftermath ever.

Eh ? That's  commonm pratice on Aftermath, unless you're Dre or Em. 50 leaked Wanksta, Disco Inferno (which was also unfinished), Straght To The Bank and Get Up; Busta leaked Touch It and Game Higher. They all said that they did it because Interscope wasn't doing shit and we know that Dre likes to take his time.

BTW Grow Up has a snyth (if thats the right name) in the chours, the instrumental doesn't --> loop.

Yeah. You know what it is, most in here just mention like 5 songs.
And I understand the more I mention, the less overall quality.
But I probably listened to over 15.000 tracks this year, so this list ain't even that big.

To answer your question, the bolded tracks are some of my personal favorites just like the rest but those were outstanding to me.
