The reset of the calendar can only mean two things: record companies need to get their tax write-offs in order—and it's time to make New Years Predictions!

As we fondly remember a 2011 sprinkled with ominous portents like the V-Nasty/Gucci Mane album and the Kreayshawn/Rick Ross beef, who knows what 2012 will bring—besides a Mayan apocalypse, that is?

We at ItsTheReal don't make guarantees—nor do we use EZ-Pass or traceable phone numbers. Since we prefer to stay off the grid, we do feel safe making a few predictions for those special people we care most about: rappers. So join us as we describe the future—not the rapper, but the actual future.
