The Playlist: Chief Keef / Yeah Yeah Yeahs / Big Boi / Trash Talk / Chlöe Howl A$AP Rocky ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Big K.R.I.T / Foals
I Don't Like
Taken from the 'Finally Rich' LP – the most-hyped hip-hop release of the year – "I Don't Like" is the track most likely to drive the controversial 17-year-old rapper into the mainstream.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
The New York three-piece recently confirmed they'll be releasing a new album in spring. Let's just hope it contains tracks as good as this 2003 cut – easily one of the best songs of the 2000s.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Ok, so it's not a new song as such, but we can't stop replaying the Outkast man's reading of the Dr Seuss classic for 'Vice' magazine's noisey.vice.com channel.
It seems unlikely many fans of this hardcore punk outfit are planning to buy their $60 coffee table book for Christmas, but those that do will be treated to this previously unreleased ditty.
This 17-year-old Londoner makes thoroughly modern pop complete with grime and dubstep musical references that never feel contrived. A Lily Allen for 2013.
A$AP Rocky ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Big K.R.I.T
A good old fashioned hip-hop party anthem with a star-studded cast battling for space over an excellent Hit Boy beat. It won't set the world alight, but it'll make your New Year's Eve party sound a lot more fun.
The unmistakable Afro-pop influence is still apparent, but Foals' ear for an orthodox hook and pop melody is ever- refining, as demonstrated on this track from their new LP 'Holy Fire'.
