9. Tropkillaz โ€“ Badman

Brazil’s Tropkillaz are definitely pushing the envelope in this genre and are one of my favorite groups. This track is interesting in that itโ€™s not the typical fast-paced, jump-up-and-down kind of vibe. It doesnโ€™t bore you with the usual minute-long buildup before the drop but gets right to the point, smoothly blending a Sleng Teng-like bassline, hip-hop drums and the sampled vocals( from Ding Dong’s “Badman Forward, Badman Pullup”) into a head-nodding drop.
