Sfizz Nitty cracks the list once again this time with a song featuring and produced by SAP. At the time, The duo was still riding the wave of success from 2009 breakthrough record “Sox In The Air” in the moment this song Hit the clubs and airwaves it was an instant classic. Ironically, this song haFs seen a resurgence over the last couple of years because of the popularity of the Delaware two step.

In the summer of 2018 it seemed like Shay Free was everywhere with this song being played in the clubs and on radio stations throughout the tri-state.

2. Shizz Nitty – “That Booty” Prod. By SAP (2010)

Even with what at this point has to be considered legendary status of “Sox In The Air”, “That Booty” by Shizz Nitty has to be his most successful song to date. This song still receives regular radio play nearly a decade later, and gets play throughout the East Coast and has become somewhat of a cult classic in the New Orleans Bounce circles. You will hear this song in urban clubs and top 40 clubs throughout the area cementing Shizz Nitty as the decade’s most successful Delaware artist.

1. Bobby Dime$  – “Out Delaware” (2011)

No song more embodies the Delaware party experience than the 2011 smash “Out Delaware”. This song has become an anthem that can be played at almost any party throughout the state and the Peedi Cakk remix is just as hot as the original. With his distinct voice and unique swag one can only wonder how far The muli-talented rapper could have gone if not for his untimely demise but needless to say we miss Bobby Dime$.

Songs That Made Us Take Notice:

These are the songs the had the internet buzzing I should have bought everyone’s playlist.

Lil West – “Somedays” (2019)

The Bridgeville Delaware native signed his first deal with Republic records at the age of 17 and dropped this song that already has over a million views on YouTube and has become a clear fan favorite. We are excited to see what the next decade brings for this young up-and-comer.

Starrah – “Rush” (2017)

The Rehoboth Beach, Delaware native has taken the writing world by storm, having written for the likes of Rihanna, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, Madonna and Beyonce. After writing on the 2015 hit “Be Real” by Kid Ink and Dej Loaf she exploded on the scene and is well on her way as an artist as well.

Sap – “I’m Made” (2016)

One could easily argue that Sap’s 2016 song “O Eight” should be on this list having over a million streams on Spotify, and they’d probably be right. But Sap’s I’m made is so Delaware it has to make the list. One look at the video and you see a who’s who of artists, DJs DE elites and a fitting tribute to Thomas “Cannibal” Cottington.

Pauly Dinero – “Never Will I Ever” (2018)

This infectious Caribbean themed track brought Pauly Dinero to the forefront as an artist with the song getting regular radio play and being the catalyst for him to perform at Powerhouse.

Rell Jerv – “Either Way” {2017}

Rell Jerv shot onto the scene after his successful stint on “The Four” and let us know he was a force to be reckoned with. With his witty, melodic flow and hard-charging lyrics he secured himself amongst the who’s next in the industry.

Jimmie Allen – “Best Shot” (2017)

This is actually the most successful song on our list with a combined 24 million views. The 33 year Milton, DE native is well on his way to being a superstar.

Kitty Monroee- Blue 42 feat. Freeky Reek (2019)

As the decade comes to a close this New Orleans Bounce themed song started burning up the airwaves on the urban and top 40 charts at one point getting as high as 143 all the BDS charts. Being a triple threat as a singer, rapper and writer expect to see big things from Kitty Monroee as we enter the next decade

Sap Feat. Mac Miller – “C4” (2016)

Sap’s 2016 album “Self Employed” cemented him as a force to be reckoned with in the industry and was widely considered the classic project. The album’s feature track with the late rapper Mac Miller has become a cult classic with his fans and has many hoping that this song gets a posthumous release at some point.

Gutter From Da Gutter – “Back Broke” (2013)

Earlier in the decade this infectious party track started making waves getting regular radio play and rocking in the clubs. This was one of my favorites as well, as it was guaranteed to get the party going. We’re not quite sure why we didn’t hear more from her but hopefully the new decade will bring more music from this talented artist.
