HALFTIME: Tentative Greatest Rap Songs of the 2012

Keeping abreast with modern rap is time consuming to say the least. I've dedicated more superfluous time this year to documenting Action Bronson's somersaults into moving vehicles than my career or relationship. I imagine that for people fortunate enough to lead more balanced lives, rummaging through the aggregate blog circuit for quality music is exhausting. That's why well constructed end-of-period lists are important. They do all the heavy lifting for the uninformed. I hope this list helps casual fans wade through the mediocrity. Enjoy.

  1. Solid.

    I think I dig the Massive Attack remix of The Don more than the OG.

    And no Accident Murderers?

  2. I haven't heard Accident Murderers yet. Trying to hold out for the album. Only heard Daughters once. I dig the Massive Attack remix, but the OG has more energy. I'm still trying to find that mp3 actually.

  4. Well connected to Major Expressway such as Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) and Central
