69. Santigold, 'L.E.S. Artistes'

A Philly-born, Brooklyn-based b-girl with a taste for dub reggae, new wave, punk and scuzzed-up dance beats, Santi White is a scientifically perfect hipster. Which is one reason this ice-cold diss of the hipsterati– "Leave me out, you name-dropper"– hit so hard. The killer guitar hook didn't hurt, either.
