Some things can't wait. I have two other song lists on backlog (and I hope the SC people get back to me about the '90s list) before I hang up my list-reporting hat for good. But I've been waiting for them to add to this list for ages, so ladies and gents, here's K.Dot.

33. "Swimming Pools (Drank)" (2012)
32. "Untitled 06" (2016)
31. "The Heart Pt. 2" (2010)
30. "The Jig Is Up (Dump'n)" (2012)
29. "Westside, Right on Time" f/ Young Jeezy (2012)
28. "Untitled 07" (2016)
27. "Blow My High (Members Only)" (2011)
26. "Wesley’s Theory" f/ George Clinton and Thundercat (2015)
25. "Poetic Justice" f/ Drake (2012)
24. "You Ain't Gotta Lie (Momma Said)" (2015)
23. "Love" f/ Zacari (2017)
22. "The Art of Peer Pressure" (2012)
21. "Untitled" (2015)
20. "Hol' Up" (2011)
19. "Blue Faces" (2016)
18. "Humble" (2017)
17. "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" (2012)
16. "King Kunta" (2015)
15. "Rigamortus" (2011)
14. "Hood Politics" (2015)
13. "Fear" (2017)
12. "HiiiPoWeR" (2011)
11. "u" (2015)
10. "Alright" (2015)
9. "Duckworth" (2017)
8. "A.D.H.D." (2011)
7. "Backseat Freestyle" (2012)
6. "The Blacker the Berry" (2015)
5. "Money Trees" f/ Jay Rock (2012)
4. "DNA" (2017)
3. "Sing About Me/I’m Dying of Thirst" (2012)
2. "Cartoon & Cereal" f/ Gunplay (2012)
1. "m.A.A.d city" f/ MC Eiht (2012)

Don't understand why they left of "i," in my opinion his very best song, but there you go.

Thanks, Stevie.

I know we're still in June, but I have the slight impression that "DNA." will be the most acclaimed song of the year.

DNA and Humble are both getting heaps of praise - I think both will do well in the year-end lists (Humble in particular has popped up high on several mid-year lists).

Swimming Pools at the bottom of the list is a little disappointing.

Will this list count. I know Henrik said for a single artist list it had to be 50 songs I think. I don't know maybe it was 30. Can't remember.

No, 30 is the minimum.

Artist lists with -50 songs have been declared eligible a lot of times (Nina Simone, Nirvana, Depeche Mode, etc.)

Ok good, thanks. Just couldn't remember the rule on that.
