S-R-H-H: Top 10 Albums of 2012


KdawG and Spiritual Revolutionary Hip Hop presents their personal favourites through the GREAT hip hop year 2012. Please note that there are several albums that easily could have taken place on this list, and it's very difficult to pick out only 10, when there is only a little margin separating them. Some individual songs, may also have torn me in, and made this final results. But when that is said, S-R-H-H feel that this is a good list, a good mix of veterans, some debutantes, that have delivered this year.







S-R-H-H will also come with top tracks, EP, Mixtapes, etc. So Stay tuned!

TOP 10 ALBUMS

 

01. JOEY BARBIERI - CLOSER 2 CLOSURE 

The impressive debut album by Joey Barbieri goes straight to the top on S-R-H-H. 

Top Track(s): Stepping Stone, Finally Standin', To The Top, They'll Never Take Me A Live, What We Need, Closer to Closure

02. KALKI - EXCEPTIONAL FEATURES VOL. 3

Kalki - One of the most hard-working emcees through the year 2012, who have released a lot of dope music this year, takes a strong second place. Not only is it dope, but also super conscious, and thought-provoking to the fullest. Maybe the best of them all, is Exceptional Features Vol. 3, and therefore the album goes straight to a second place on S-R-H-H Top 10 albums.

Top Track(s): Still Frame Solstice Ft. Stranded (Produced by Aquarius Minded)







03. DANEGUROUS - THIRD EYE VIEW

Danegurous full-length debut album "Third Eye" was one of the highlights this year. A cosmic travel through conscious lyrics over beautiful, spiritual, beats. A revolutionary album where both beat and lyrics scores high. 

Top Track(s): Rebel Movement, New World War, Prevail, Higher Purpose, Infinity, Infinity Beyond

Top Track(s): The Wake 













05. REKS W/ NUMONICS - REBELUTIONARY

Reks's "Rebelutionary" entirely produced by Numonics, should have an obvious place on this list. An important album with a strong message. Revolutionary from start to finish.

Top Track(s): Unlearn












06. SON OF SATURN - THE BLACKHOLE SPEAKEASY

Saturn's full-lenght album this year, "The Blackhole Speakeasy" is a very strong album. Strong lyrics, powerful and deep instrumentals, without a doubt one of the best releases this year.

07. REKS - STRAIGHT, NO CHASER 
Reks take another place on the list as well. With "Straight, No Chaser", released through Brick Records. The album offers some dope productions from Statik Selektah, in a way a different album than Rebelutionary, but at the same time, just as dope as Rebelutionary.

Top Track(s): Sit/Think/Drink











08. APAKALYPSE & SON OF SATURN - SKILLFUL MEANZ

Apakalypse has been very hard-working in 2012. No doubt that at least one of his albums shall be on this list. Skillful Meanz Featuring Son of Saturn offers some of the sickest beats made in 2012(!) and with their conscious, revolutionary lyrics over this beats, you get nothin' but BANGERS!

Top Track(s): Pendulums, Future Teacherz
