The 25 Best Guest Verses of 2012

10. Jay Rock on Kendrick Lamar's "Money Trees"


It must be tough being Jay Rock. He was originally drafted by TDE to be the one to bring them to the promise land of money trees way back in 2008 (back when he had a single with Lil Wayne and will.i.am). But for whatever reason, things didn't work out for the spitfire MC. But he and his TDE team weren't making mistakes, they were going through life lessons. And there was no greater benefactor to those lessons than Kendrick Lamar who avoided similar missteps. When it came time to crafting his major label debut, he went into his own zone and didn't really get guest spots from his Schoolboy or Ab-Soul. However, he did holler at "big brother" Jay Rock who provided a stellar verse where he contemplates a life of crime versus one stricken in dire poverty. We just hope the lord forgive him.
