The 50 Best Songs of 2012

34. Pusha T f/ Kanye West & Ghostface Killah "New God Flow"

Album: Cruel Summer
Producer: Kanye West, Boogz & Tapez, Anthony Kilhoffer
Label: G.O.O.D. Music, Def Jam

For this G.O.O.D. Music collaboration with Pusha T, Kanye West borrowed the drums and hook from Ghostface Killah's classic Supreme Clientele song "Mighty Healthy" to expert effect on "New God Flow." And in a surprise move that even Pusha wasn't hipped to until the 11th hour, 'Ye added a brand new Ghost verse to the record for its final Cruel Summer album version.

As if the song wasn't already ridiculous enough with two fiery verses from Pusha and Kanye spazzing for 32 bars, the Wally Champ himself adds a whole new dimension to the track with some of the dopest guest rhymes of the year. It almost felt unfair of Kanye to commission a G.O.O.D. Music and Ghostface collaboration. That's just too much talent, and style. — DI
