Earlier this month, we released our Best Songs and Best Albums of 2015 lists, respectively.

As usual, these year-end lists get people charged up. How could we put Rae Sremmurd's Sremmlife at No. 3 on our list?! Do they even write their own rhymes?! Where's the real hip-hop?! So, in light of all the surrounding controversy of the lists we argue over for weeks, we had an idea: ask the artists.

What did Future spend his year listening to besides his three incredible mixtapes and two chart-topping albums? What does Tinashe like to listen to in bed? And who does Jadakiss wish he collaborated with this year? Here's part one (of five installments) of your favorite artists listing their favorite songs of 2015 and why.
