Best of 2014: Top 50 Hip Hop and R&B songs of 2014 (Part Four 20-11)

2014 closes in a matter of weeks, and with its end comes a myriad of reflective best of lists that serve as a good way to round up the array of sounds that really made an impact this year. Undoubtedly you'll be seeing a bunch of these lists published on the AU in the coming weeks, but I wanted to kick mine off with a round up of 50 tracks I feel were the best moments of hip hop and R&B - what some people call 'urban music' - this year.

The top 20 albums will follow, but for now here are the singles, non-singles, and mixtape cuts from Australia and around the world that owned 2014. This is part four; positions 20-11. Each part will be published progressively throughout this week. No one artist (unless they are a guest artist) is featured more than twice.
