The 25 Best Guest Verses of 2012

6. Danny Brown on Ab-Soul's "Terrorist Threats"


When you have a hook featuring the line "extra pills, EXTRA PILLS" delivered with near-cartoonish anxiety, you damn well better have Danny Brown on your track. And, as expected, he doesn't just "show up" on Ab-Soul's "Terrorist Threats"; he rips the airy, albeit booming, beat to shreds. It's a guest verse brimming with Brown's trademark animated style, ridiculous wordplay, and enough internal rhyming for 100 bars. It's also one of his most socially aware pieces to date, rhyming together thoughts like "Got a n***a in the streets, no health care/Tryna slang weed just to put shoes on his feet/So fuck you, you don't give a fuck about me/Can't get a job cause they drug test me."
