25 Songs That Should Have Blown Up in 2012

Lil Debbie f/ Dolla Bill Gates "2 Cups"



"2 Cups" is a bunch of particular cultural touchpoints and lazier lyrics, just barely yawning past the bar of minimal work required. Absolutely nothing about this is exceptional on the performative level, and this only seems to make its catchy, trash-culture insoucience even more effective. Sure, it's the anthem of summer unemployment, of smoking too much weed, of letting your days waste away. But even a modicum of effort would disturb its effortless langour; this is a song about moving as little as possible, to avoid leaving any sweat marks on your clothing, to do nothing and to look as fresh as possible doing it.
