The 50 Best Songs of 2012

46. SpaceGhostPurrp "The Black God"

Album: Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp
Producer: SpaceGhostPurrp
Label: 4AD

There was a justifiable cause for concern when SpaceGhostPurrp had some of his best work properly mastered for the Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp compilation. Much of his appeal is steeped in his grimy, lo-fi approach, which is lost at times when his work is polished. But not with "The Black God," a stark declaration of supremacy over some of Purrp's finest production to date.

When the hook hits and everything cuts out like a pivotal horror movie scene, you might really think dude is a deity. And if not that, then at least the ruler of the underworld, where everyone still listens to Three 6 Mafia. — Andrew Martin
