The 50 Best Songs of 2012 (So Far)

3. Schoolboy Q f/ A$AP Rocky "Hands On the Wheel"

Album: Habits & Contradictions
Producer: Best Kept Secret
Label: TDE

Flipping Lissie's live version of Kid Cudi's "Pursuit of Hapiness," Best Kept Secret crafted an eerie beat suitable for Schoolboy Q and A$AP Rocky to swap tales of weed, brew, and bitches: "If I fucked her once, then I could fuck her twice, if I fucked her twice I might change her life." This song sounds as epic as we need our hip-hop to be, starting with the fact that Cudi's raw source material is all about rock-and-roll's ultimate life-or-death struggle—as the song says "if I fall, if I die, know I lived it till the fullest." SBQ and Dat PMF are on the same shit, but they're going so hard they don't even have time to reflect on it.
