Despite what some people may think, 2012 was a great year for music, provided you looked in the right places. I’ll be listing my favorites here, as well as a standout song from each.

Best albums:

Killer Mike – R.A.P Music

Kendrick Lamar – good kid m.A.A.d city

Brother Ali – Mourning in America, Dreaming in Color

Nas – Life is Good

Big Boi – Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors

Robert Glasper – Black Radio

Homeboy Sandman – First of a Living Breed

El-P – Cancer 4 Cure

Minus the Bear – Infinity Overload

Songs:

I wasted a weekend afternoon putting together my (fairly) definitive list of the top 25 songs of 2012. I limited it to one song per artist and album. Of course, it’s limited to songs that are on Spotify, but that only led to two deserving songs not making the list.
