“I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And god damn it, people like me.”

Quelle Chris, channeling Stuart Smalley and Sally Field, gave me the positivity I needed this year. Producer Cohenbeats has quietly been putting out some of my favorite beats since J-Dilla ascended into hip-hop godhood, and here he brings the perfect flavor for Chris’ lackadaisical flow. The whole album is fantastic, an easy recommend for hip hop heads.


Are these the best songs of 2017? Probably not. But in another sense, definitely yes. These are some songs that really made an impression on me for a variety of reasons. I hope you enjoy them. -pocoGRANDES
