PIGEONS & PLANES: BEST SONGS OF 2017 (SO FAR) - AMIR OBE & VINCE STAPLES
Best Songs of 2017 (So Far)
28. Amir Obe - "Wish You Well"
Amir Obe has been "working 25 hours every day," and the hard work is paying off. "WISH YOU WELL" starts off with some mild steel drums, and then the beat drops and kicks you in the gut. This is one of those songs that makes you feel like the superstar, like it's you on the way to the club to pop bottles and spray all your haters. Obe's None of the Clocks Work project is impressive and definitely worth a listen, starting with "Wish You Well."
Kick back and enjoy the champagne showers, they're on the way. —John Walaszek
22. Vince Staples - "Big Fish"
The best tracks from Vince Staples take full advantage of his rapping abilities by not distracting things with overblown choruses or busy beats. It helps that “Big Fish” has a super catchy Juicy J hook, but the main attraction here is Vince’s verses. Atop the bright, clean production, Vince flourishes. Reflecting on how he got to where he is now, the success, and everything that comes with it, “Big Fish” is just another reminder that Vince is one of the best rappers alive.—Joe Price
