Trek Life, from Mello Music Group, dropped this video earlier this week, and while the video isn’t anything spectacular, the music is. The song is motivational backed by super strong production from Oddisee.

So here it is. Our final part of our Best of 2012 coverage concludes with our top 50 tracks of the year. I’ll avoid the clichés, but this has been a tough list to put together and a special thanks to everyone who produced great music throughout the year for making it tough. It’s been fun.
We’ve still got our guestlists for 2012, which will be coming up each day this week and then we’ll be returning to regular goodness. But for now, enjoy the end of the year with our Top 50 Tracks of 2012.
It’s a cliché itself, but what a great year we’ve had. It’s just been packed with so much great music as hip-hop diversifies, there’s one thing for sure – hip-hop ain’t dead. So why don’t we get down to what you came here for? A list of our favourite albums of 2012 for you to skim-read. Then once you’re done, let us know your albums of the year in the comments below.
How else could we mark Christmas Day but with a post of free presents of the year? So we’re going to share with you our picks of the free downloads from the past twelve months.
While it might seem like minor news that a computer company has handed out an award for Hip-Hop album of the year, but when that company is Apple and that album is one we’re into, we have to gives props. iTunes Best of 2012 awards have just gone live on the iTunes Store and the California technology giant have deservingly awarded Oddisee’s People Hear What They See, their Hip-Hop album of the year. Massive credit where it’s due, not just to Oddisee and Mello Music Group, but to Apple for not picking the mainstream’s latest flavour.
Substantial dropped this bonus song from the recording sessions for his album Home Is Where The Art Is. This one features yU on the mic, with Oddisee handling the production and doing a great job with the go-go sound of the area. yU drops a great verse to accompany Substantial and this is a song that definitely could have been on the album. You can download the song for free on the bandcamp page.
Oddisee’s latest and essentially first album, People Hear What They See, has been one of the releases of the year. Nobody doubted his production capabilities going in, but he achieved a great flow through the album and matched it with genuinely humble lyrics. No better example than “Let It Go” which Oddisee performs with his live band that have recently embarked on a massive tour.
