#1 commercial of the year: "rbk a5," jadakiss
I tacked on a couple of special categories to my top 50 this year; this is the first. as I've previously discussed, I love jadakiss but dislike most of his songs. this is his best solo joint, 1:11 of 'kiss rapping about reebok's latest basketball shoes and allen iverson. the lyrics just trip off his tongue with so much love to give, but the track is the killer. every sound is from a basketball court: balls hitting the floor, swooshing through nets, sneakers squeaking as their wearers (presumably a.i.) pivot. "rbk a5" is one of the most truly original "records" of 2002.
