Best Collabo’s of 2010

by Yvette Travillian

Sometimes in order for a singer, MC or producer to make a hot song he or she must seek the help of another singer, MC or producer -to make it even hotter. Got that? As the end of the year rapidly hit, I noticed that a chunk of my favorite songs came in form of a collaboration. So here are my top 20 collabo tracks that rocked my headphones in 2010.
