The 50 Best Songs of 2012 (So Far)

39. Wiki "Wikispeaks"

Album: 1993
Producer: SPORTING LIFE
Label: N/A


Okay fine, this came out last year but whatever. It’s not like all that many people ever heard this song until the video dropped a few months back. But "Wikispeaks" has more than just excellent visuals going for it. The song is the birth of one of rap’s newest, most promising acts. Wiki’s nasally voice and intricate lyrics are oh-so-reminiscent of a young Slim Shady, but he’s NYC to the core. Like he says in the song, “Damn I feel like Jay-Z in '96/Man I feel like ODB in '93/Am I even an '04 Ye?” All that remains to be seen—but this is still a great start.
