Rocked this song alot toward the end of 2010. Dope stuff. Nocando always delivers no matter on Grindtime or on his tracks. Im just sad i jumped on this track so late in the yr. Props to Nocan for sending the album to the station.

Props to Dirtbag Dan for comming to Hawaii and reppin on the Got Rice? show and at Hiphop at the Trops. Hella Cool cat. This is Hommies cru and this track quickly became a Got Rice Favorite...
#12 Distant Relatives : As We Enter
Nas and Damien Marley... How can u go wrong??? track fucking rocks. Nuff Said
#11 Ill Hill Society : Aloha Broha
These cats been putting in work for the last few years and finally put something out. After having a really good showing on the Show N Prove Segment of the show, this track made its way into the rotation and has been a fav ever since. Wouldve been higher if there was more tracks out, Still Waiting for a full album guys. hurry da fuck up... haha.
#10 Tassho Pearce / Kwalified Emcee / Copywrite : Books
Tassho's Been putting in work for a while now. Props to him for his latest DL's under the Aloha Friday series. Shits been dope, and this is one of em. The other fav is the collab with Murs, Creed & Omega6 called Good Problem and the collab wit all the local emcees. Keep it up and Tasshos gonna find himself at the top of this list next year. Good job fam. keep it up. Cant wait to hear whats next.
#9 Mo Illa Pillaz : Manapua Man
This came out late in 09 and has been rocked on the Got Rice? Show throughout 2010. From Manapua Man, to Blu Lights, to Da Secret wit Jimbo of Ooklah the Moc, We rocked a hella bunch of tracks from this longtime local hiphop duo. wit there latest album, Universe Citys, just dropped, were mos def gonna hear more noise from them on the show in 2011
#8 Bambu / Prometheus Brown : Slow Down
We been playing Bambus stuff for a lil while now, but only recently have we really pushed his solo tracks and they are fucking dope. Slow Down, Queen is dead, Pull It Back, Like us and more are all Favs. Add to the fact that Bambus been back in the islands twice in the last year and has been killing all his shows, also with a willingness to work with local emcees (and blessing the Got Rice? Show twice didnt hurt... hahaha) he is well deserved of this 8 spot right hurrrr. ha
#7 Rocky Rivera : The Rundown
We were torn between putting Bambu b4 Rocky and vice Versa, but finally decided to put Rocky 1st cuz Lady's 1st.... and we didnt think Bambu would mind... haha. In all realness though, home girl has killed it wit her album. The Rundown track gets a hella lotta love in the islands for its "local" beat, also MRSHMLO and Girl Like Me had alotta play on the show. Add the dope show she did earlier in the yr and blessing the Got RIce? show at that time, she is really is showing that at number 7, lady's should be first.... ha
#6 Angry Locals / Kluv : Collapse Slow
Now this shouldnt have to be explained... but i will. The local "Super cru" Angry Locals should have been higher if they had come out with their album earlier in the year. That being said, for the noise they made in the last month or two, this spot is well deserved. Wit all the members breaking out this year, Krystyles killin the airwaves as well as tracks, Mox wrecking stuff on the battle tip and on the mixtape circuit, Osna's on everybodys album, and Mic 3 dropping his album and being on the new Pirates Movie, add in KLUV wit his mixtape and teaming up wit mox on Prolific Unknowns.... Not to mention the Big Battles and Party at there CD release, and not to forget the hilarious "call out videos" they made on Youtube, the Angry Locals are gearing up to take the top spot in 2011. Keep reppin the locals Boys...
#5 Pro : Nobody
This might come to a surprise to some, but the cats in the local hiphop game know, Pro is the real Deal. Hommie produces and Emcees and seems to have taken both skillz to the next level in 2010. On the Show N Prove segment of the show, hommie has been on as an emcee or a beatmaker an unreal 4 times. Once wit Kinasi, once wit Fellow emcee Product as Pro n Product, Once as a beatmaker with Prie, and of course Nobody on his solo ish, and he never went into the negative wit any of his tracks on show n prove. Weather its teaming to make the dope duo Pro n Product, teaming up wit other local hiphop cats or doin his solo shit.... not to mention the shows hes been doing at various venues, Hommie has been putting in unreal work and has stepped his game up hard in 2010. mos def looking foward to 2011 for this Got Rice? Show Fav. Mos def cant wait to see whats next. Good Job, Keep it goin Brotha...
#4 Creed Chameleon : Groupie Song
No Surprise here, Creed Chameleon kept grinding in 2010 wit his first serving from the Flip the Bird Fam, The Ultimatum. The Got Rice? show has rocked many of the tracks off the album Throughout 2010 like Paradise life relaxing wit Geo and Bambu, Groupie song, Morning Blessings and more. Add the fact that Hommies been on every big rap acts bill the last few years, number 4 is a great place for this Hawaii hiphop vet. The Got Rice? Show is always excited to see whats next with Mr Creed... only time will tell. keep goin and rising my Brotha
#3 Mayer Hawthorne / Jay z : Just Aint Gonna Work out
Now this is the trak that Brought me and Eligh the one and only, together. Shit was so dope we had to rock it. The beats and the videos together were perfect. I was blown away at how well it worked. Not to mention, its the perfect "fuck u girl" song... hahaha. Mayer Hawthorne has always been up there, but 2010 really blew it up when we started seeing videos for Maybe so, Maybe no and Wish it would rain. Also with a performance in the HI, Mayer Hawthorne has become one of the Got Rice? shows quirky favs and deserves the 3 spot
#2 Dumbfoundead : Rapper O's
With the rise of Grindtime and its popularity here in the islands, it was only natural that we would pick up on more of their better rappers. Dumbfoundead was incredible on the battle tip and blew us away. what really made it dope was when we heard his tracks.... damn, shit rocked. Rapper O's is his ode to wack rappers and we thought it was great... and so did U listeners giving multiple likes on FB. with other songs like Different Galaxies, 3 pipes down, Bullets of truth, Professional raps, 2 versions of She dont care and more being rocked on the show, its no wonder why Dumbfoundead landed in the 2nd spot. Cant wait to hear this cat live one day.... stay tuned... chee
#1 Murs / 9thmatic : Asian Girl
We dont need to talk about this really... but we will cuz its our number one of 2010. Fornever is a dope album, but when i heard Asian Girl, i knew we had a new song to open the show with. A dedication to all my Asian Girl listeners out there was just to perfect and has been the theme song for the Got Rice? Show ever since. multiple cats love it and have called and commented saying so. not to mention, Murs being one of Got Rice? shows all time favorites, this one song has changed the image and added the FUN back into the Got Rice? Show fornever... hahaha.
Good look guys. big up to all that have listened to the show throughout the year. 2010 is over, but well be back in 2011 harder and crazier then ever. Get Ready, twenty one one is when we gettin it done... Chee
