Dart Adams’ 25 Most Slept On Hip-Hop Albums Of 2012



AWAR – The Laws Of Nature

AWAR’s criminally slept on project The Laws Of Nature features production by The Alchemist, Jake One, Sid Roams, Nottz, M-Phazes, Sebb Bash & Vanderslice of Brutal Music. AWAR takes full advantage of this veritable producers Murderer’s Row over 15 tracks with assistance from MURS, Evidence, Joe Budden, Nottz, Stat Quo & Has-Lo. Why don’t you own this album again?


Apollo Brown x Guilty Simpson –  Dice Game

Contender for Producer Of The Year Apollo Brown had his hands in two of the best Rap albums to drop all year long, this one featured the lyrical beast Guilty Simpson and he bodied all 16 slaps he was provided. Standout tracks include “Dear Jane”, the Torae featured “Potatoes” and the Planet Asia collaboration “Nasty”. Life is like a dice game, but this pair of dice rolled a hard seven.


Bambu – One Rifle Per Family

Bambu of Beatrock Music has always made much needed rebel music throughout his career in an era where Hip-Hop needs it most. His latest album, One Rifle Per Family, is no exception, featuring contributions from Killer Mike, Prometheus Brown, Sick Jacken and Rocky Rivera.


Billy Woods – History Will Absolve Me

Billy Woods of Backwoodz Studios’ new album History Will Absolve Me will probably be completely overlooked and unmentioned by 95% of Hip-Hop blogs, Rap publications and sites. Dart Adams doesn’t write for them, though…


The Black Opera – Libretto: Of King Legend

A Side Worldwide teamed up with indie Hip-Hop juggernaut label Mello Music Group to release one of the best albums of 2012, The Black Opera’s incredible Libretto: Of King Legend. Produced entirely by Astronote, it blended social commentary and consciousness with superior lyricism and brilliant production.


Blu x Exile – Give Me My Flowers While I Can Smell Them

The last time Blu teamed up with Exile they made a classic. This time Blu teamed up with Exile and made an album that you should definitely own if you claim to love Hip-Hop. So…do you?

    I just was going back and forth with some clown on Fb about rap this year, wherein he tried to make some comment about “obscure” artists that “20 people know about”, and I thought about you and your knowledge and championing on these artists that are in the “minor league”. I have several of these releases, and thank-you for proving I’m not the only one that digs more than the mainstream that’s served up.
