15. Chronixx, โ€œSell My Gunโ€

Chronixx has been the face of the so-called reggae revival since 2013, but heโ€™s also shown an aptitude for riding dancehall rhythms, particularly those made by long-time collaborator Romaine โ€œTeflonโ€ Arnett of Zinc Fence Records. The two recently had a falling out, casting doubt on future collaborations, but not before dropping this thought-provoking anti-violence anthem at the very end of 2015, just past contention for last yearโ€™s list. (It appears on Chronixx + Federation Soundโ€™s Roots & Chalice, one of our picks for this yearโ€™s best mixtapes). In a year in which dancehall offered little conscious fare, this one went somewhat under the radar, but with Chronixx planning to drop his new album, Chronology, it may soon see more life. โ€” Jesse Serwer
