10. Mavado, β€œProgress”


Mavado really went hard with the war tunes this year, especially in his lyrical battle with Popcaan, but didn’t have too many major hits for the clubs if you subtract those that were actually released in 2015. β€œProgress” (which appears as a bonus track on DJ Khaled’s Major Keys album, and also makes a cameo in his β€œNas Album Done” video) is a very notable exception. Personally, my favorite Mavado is the Mavado who sounds sad or disappointed on a slow riddim and talks straight from the heart. β€œProgress” is definitely one of those songs. The Money Boss riddim, on which β€œProgress” was voiced, is a great production by Mineral Boss Records β€” Vershon, Jahmiel and I-Octane have great songs on it as well. β€” DJ Shirkhan
