"Pretty Little Thing"
Artist: Styles P
Producer: Green Lantern
Release Year: 2010
Song Sampled: "I Met A Little Girl"
Sample Release Year: 1978

Why The Song Is Dope: Styles has had some trouble gaining solo traction after The LOX, but Lantern laced him with the perfect baseline with this quick Marvin sample. He doesn't try to do much, mostly because he doesn't have to, but fills in the gaps with smart, evocative lyrics that connect across the board. —DR
