First Annual XXL Awards Winners

Record of the Year Readers’ Choice

G.O.O.D. Music, “Mercy”

mercy album-coverKanye West and his crew of G.O.O.D. Music players dominated 2012 with their Cruel Summer smash, “Mercy.” What initially kicked off a resurrection of G.O.O.D. Fridays ultimately became an epic-sounding, double platinum giant.

Produced by Lifted, with co-production credits going to Hudson Mohawke, Mike WiLL Made It, Mike Dean and Yeezy, the record successfully built momentum for the crew’s group LP and remained an eardrum fixture on airwaves.

“Mercy” was the year’s biggest single—conquering Billboard’s Rap Songs and R&B/Hip-Hop charts and scoring the crew two 2013 Grammy-Award nominations (Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance) in the process.

Nominees: 2 Chainz ft. Drake “No Lie,” Rick Ross ft. Drake & French Montana “Stay Schemin’,” G.O.O.D. Music “Mercy,” Juicy J “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” Ca$h Out “Cashin’ Out”
