02. Bangs the Great, “50 Cent Ain’t Call Me Back Yet”

“Before Kat Stacks had the whole Internet going nuts, ya boy Bangs the Great was serving hip-hop fans with the Planters  and popcorn. At the top of the year, the Australian rapper by way of Sudan was an online sensation thanks to his ultra-catchy, yet super-hated on song, “Take U to Da Movies,” complete with its green screened video.” (XXL)

03. Juan Manuel Marquez still a force

“Rematches of great fights rarely live up to their original, and Marquez-Diaz II, the sequel to the 2009 fight of the year, unfortunately didn’t. In Marquez-Diaz I, waged in February 2009 in Diaz’s hometown of Houston, Marquez scored a ninth-round knockout to culminate a comeback in a bloody slugfest to retain the lightweight world championship.” (ESPN)
