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.

It’s a well-compiled mixtape packed full of Wordburglar remixes and tracks from the whole Backburner crew (Timbuktu, More or Les, etc…). Also it’s free…
We’ve had Wordburglar’s third album, appropriately titled 3rdburglar, on our list of upcoming albums for a long time now – we were starting to get worried. Luckily though, he’s recently released his first single from this long-awaited album. “Rhyme O’Clock” is pure hip-hop through and through as Wordburglar & More or Les pass the mic back and forth. The latest date on the album is set for May 2012.
We’re just entering our second week. Thanks for the support so far guys, we really appreciate it. As a reward, we’re going to carry on our weekly features as planned! The 2nd weekly top six is here. Remember, this is what we’ve been listening to personally and not anything respective of sales or new releases.
