* Proper audio *

After browsing over the Rhythmic Top 40 today, I thought it might be an appropriate time to make some predictions for which new hip-hop songs will become big hits going into the holiday season. Here they are:

Ludacris Ft T-Pain - One More Drink

Possibly the most fitting and entertaining Ludacris single since "Number One Spot", "One More Drink" is rocketing up the Rhythmic charts moving 23-14 this week, up 792 spins. I can see this one sticking around for a while once it enters the top 10. TrackMasters are back!!!

Kanye West - Heartless

"Heartless" debuted @ #4 on the Billboard Hot100 this week, while its up 34-25 at Rhythmic with 644 added spins over the week. Guaranteed to become a hit leading into Christmas. I predict a top 10 position next week.

Plies Ft Chris J - Put It On Ya

"Bust It Baby Pt 2" part three. I love this song, I have no doubt it will dominate Rhythmic radio over the next two-three months. Up from 42-30 with a gain of 482 spins. Plies looks like he can actually have two successful album campaigns in one year. The new DMX. Yes we can.

Honorable mention goes out to the inexcusable "Pop Champagne" which somehow, is doing quite well at radio. SMH.
