Nostalgia can be a funny thing. While digging through crates of family photos or spinning old mixtapes can bring back good memories, some resurrect more challenging, introspective feelings. The latter thread through this collection of tracks. Some are bitter about it and rock their memories to shreds, while others think about what could have been.

10. Alexander Spit feat. DaVinci – “Pool Shark”

The affable Los Angeles rapper/producer Alexander Spit, who could’ve picked so many other names, is usually judicious with the pen. On “Pool Shark”, though, he’s edged ever so slightly by San Francisco’s DaVinci, who, over piano topspin and anvil-heavy drums, starts things by enumerating the perks of his underdog status. For his turn, Spit recounts undoubtedly intense experiences like stealing cars and tripping nuts in Death Valley. There’s no hook here, although the half-sung latter part of Vinci’s cameo sticks in its own way. –Michael Madden
