Here is our third and final best-of list for 2009: a selection of the top singles we've been involved with. Please consider them for inclusion in your end of year lists.

The Contenders:

Diamond District – "I Mean Business"

The lead single from the official re-release of Diamond District's highly acclaimed debut album, In The Ruff.

D-Lo – "No Hoe"

Ultra-low bass and handclaps constitute the heavy beat and sparse synth stabs for this infectious single that quickly spread beyond Oakland, and made its way up and down the entire West Coast, drawing remixes from hip-hop veterans Too $hort, E-40, and even Snoop Dogg.

DJ JS-1 – "Ridiculous" Feat. OC And Pharoahe Monch:

Featuring OC and Pharoahe Monch, JS-1's beat is the glue that brings this track, the first single from JS-1's No Sell Out together.

Dres of Black Sheep – "Forever LuvLee"

Dres is back to represent the legendary group Black Sheep with "Forever Luvlee," the first single from his recently released EP, From The Black Pool Of Genius: The Prelude – a precursor to his forthcoming full-length, scheduled for a March 2010 release.

El Michels Affair – "C.R.E.A.M."

For Enter The 37th Chamber, a name that pays homage to the title of the Wu-Tang Clan's historic debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), El Michels Affair took the time to interpret fifteen of the most legendary and well-known Wu-Tang Clan songs, including first single, "C.R.E.A.M."

Finale – "One Man Show"

Finale has quickly gained critical acclaim for his debut album A Pipe Dream and a Promise, picking up accolades from,,, Remix Magazine, Chairman's Choice in XXL Magazine, and more. "One Man Show," the album's single is produced by Black Milk, features a remix with Hiero emcee Casual, and is set as the backdrop for Finale's very own video game, Super Finale:

God-Des And She – "Respect My Fresh"

With their third album, appropriately titled Three, God-Des (the rapper) and She (the singer) enlisted the efforts of producer Brian Hardgroove (Public Enemy, Aerosmith, Bootsy Collins). "Respect My Fresh" is the assertive first single from the recently released album.

iLL-Literacy – "Gentleman's Kool-Aid"

After years of touring and building buzz, iLL-Literacy has released their debut musical effort, IB4the1.1. "Gentlemans Kool-Aid" is the sample-inspired, bass-driven, electro-gospel-funk first single from the project.

Jern Eye – "So And So" Feat. Guilty Simpson

The first leaked song from Jern Eye's sophomore LP, Vision recently released via MYX Music Label. For the single, Jern enlists the assistance of Detroit emcee Guilty Simpson and production efforts of Bay Area duo and fellow MYX artists, Keelay & Zaire.

Tanya Morgan – "So Damn Down"

Don’t let the title of the song fool you into thinking this upbeat sounding song is full of hip-hop clichés about lyrical braggadocios; listen carefully to pick up on clues about the unspoken gritty truths of being an indie artist. "So Damn Down" is the lead single from Tanya Morgan's Brooklynati, an album racking up acclaim everywhere from XXL Magazine to SPIN to, and more.

Thank you, again, for your continued support throughout the year.
