25 Songs That Should Have Blown Up in 2012

King L "Val Venis"



Underrated producer C-Sick provided the thundering beat for Chicago rapper King Louie's "Val Venis," a track named for former WWE superstar wrestler and current libertarian twitter personality Sean Morley. Initially, King Louie's "Val Venis" was not a song but a dance invented for his YouTube channel, based upon the moves of the wrestling counterpart. He later turned the background instrumental into a song of the same name, one that highlights his sense of humor and a dynamic rap style that is at once densely written and effortlessly casual. It also managed provided a regional catchphrase for the moment (a particular King L talent) in "I'm the man/ littledidtheyknow."
