The Best Songs of 2012 (Part 2)

Evil Nine – “The Black Brad Pitt” f. Danny Brown

Danny Brown’s most foul-mouthed rhymes to date thrown into Evil Nine’s grimy blender.

Tame Impala – “Elephant”

The premiere 21st century purveyors of psych-rock dabble with ZZ Top and plenty of fuzz.

Usher – “Climax”

The best song Usher has released in the past five years, if not longer.

TNGHT – “Bugg’n”

Hudson Mohawke and Lunice are here to destroy your speakers and subwoofers, and make you dance.

Ab-Soul – “Terrorist Threats” F. Danny Brown & Jhene Aiko

Paranoid raps laced with weed smoke and society’s ills have never sounded this good.

Kool A.D. – “Manny Pacquiao”

Tweet-friendly non sequiturs from Kool A.D., who flaunts his Bay Area roots with hyphy-friendly producer Trackademicks.

Miguel – “Adorn”

Romantic Miguel trumps overtly sexual Miguel. Case in point: “Adorn”.

Heems – “You Have to Ride the Wave” F. Mr. MFN eXquire & Danny Brown

Producer Mike Finito cues up sprawling mania while Danny, eXquire and Heems embrace their wavier side and spit an endless supply of quotables.

Killer Mike – “Untitled” F. Scar

Killer Mike embraces his elegance with an elephant-like strut atop El-P’s crushing Bomb Squad-inspired production.

Big Boi – “In The A” F. T.I. & Ludacris

Atlanta has a new anthem courtesy of its three kings.
