Most Slept On Projects of 2012
 

 
With the year winding down it's time to put people on notice so they still have time to listen. 2012 has been a solid year, not as good as 2011 but there's still some dope sh-t that went by the way side. Before we get into it once again here are the ground rules...

Post WHY the project was slept on - Text based like mine will be for the most part or just youtube videos, either way give me more reasons than the cover as to why I should listen.

Post a link to the project* - Pass us the link so we don't have to dig. *If the project is a retail release DO NOT post the link obviously.

Let's get into it...

 SL Jones & DJ Burn One - Paraphernalia - DJ Burn One

Hands down this is my most slept on project of 2012. I hadn't even heard of SL Jones prior to listening to his tape, I just gave dude a chance & I'm glad I did. This tape has everything from the FIRE production from DJ Burn One down to the careless lyricism up to the serious lyricism & everything in between. Jonesy's word play & hook game are ill also. I can't sing enough praise for this tape, I love every second of it.

The second best album to drop this year but not slept on as much as the other two, Skyzoo's lyrical interpretation of Langston Hughes' "A Dream Deferred" poem is one of the biggest reasons of why I'm a fan of his. In his own words...
[This project] is lyrically superior than anything I've ever done to date. That's not to discredit anything that I've done because I'm a fan of all of my work, and I feel like everything I do is supposed to be better than the previous. I feel like I've accomplished that throughout the course of my career, but this definitely goes above and beyond where any other project I've done has gone lyrically.
I'm not sure if I agree with this but it's definitely up there. Lyrically it's easily the best album this year. Conceptually it's the best album this year also. The production despite one misstep is still crazy. I love the trumpet based segues & riffs on the album. Overall this album is just pure flame.

Oddisee's album will prove sufficient for anyone who loves serious lyrical endeavors. In his own words...
This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences.

People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. Listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired 'American Greed', Watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired 'Maybes'. By having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs.
There aren't any "bad" beats on this LP but the lyrics definitely outshine the instrumentation. This album was for a while in contention for album of the year. I don't spin it that much but it definitely was nice.

 Rockie Fresh - Driving 88 - DJ Ill Will

With Electric Highway on the way I'd like to see how Rockie changes since he signed with MMG. Prior to his signing though this gem was dropped. The production is top notch from top to bottom with a variety of sounds + samples. Lyrically if you fu-k with Sir Michael Rocks you'll fu-k with Rockie -- Rockie being the better emcee lyrically (slightly) though. For a young cat his flow & mic presence are both dope.

This right here is my favorite CyHi project -- the rest of them were forgettable. Ivy League on the other hand has solid longevity, sh*t Honor Roll is playing as I type this up. Lyrically CyHi has never been a slouch and his word play is reminiscent of SL Jones' but with a little less potency. The production on this is also really dope. There's a few missteps but the dope tracks are enough to compensate for it...

Nah it wasn't a bad year at all. For me at least 2012 has low replay value across the board though there is sh*t I still rotate from this year. Not as much as 2011 though...

Gary Clark Jr's debut album Blak and Blu, obviously this was slept on here on BX because it's a Rock album but this sh*t is easily top 5 releases this year. Production on this album is perfect, it has a perfect mix of Rock, Blues, Soul and Hip-Hop. Even if you really aren't into Rock music do yourself a favor and listen to this, I had never heard of dudes music before and I just decided to buy this album on whim and it was a great decision.

A slept-on prelude to his forthcoming album "Prisoner of Conscious". This was most likely slept on because of the slew of mixtapes/projects that came out around that time, overshadowing this one. This mixtape has some great features, and the tracks are blended well cohesively.
