Summer is only weeks away and there’s still no clear cut anthem for the season. In fact, radio pretty much spins a set of older tracks, some of which date back to the top of this year. What’s the issue here? Are our favorite rappers above dropping tunes for cookouts and turn ups?

Hopefully not, but from the looks of it, MCs are opting to ride the success of past singles until the wheels fall off. So much so that the Internets have received an unusual amount of remixes for hit records in past weeks.

Some would say building on something already hot is the smart approach. Others believe artists are being stingy with their new material. Regardless of your stance, this is the best we’ve gotten so far.

Here’s a quick update. MMG, YMCMB, and DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group have formed a rat pack of sorts, with Future Vandross serving as their hired assassin. Meanwhile Juicy J continues to pop up here, there, and seemingly everywhere. Even the big homie Jay-Z briefly pumped the brakes on his business endeavors to hop on a popular jam.

We’ve compiled a list of the top summer remixes as we see it, or at least until someone steps of to the plate and drops some new tunes. Turn your volume up loud and hit the jump for a few summer essentials.
