Complex has already put you up the hottest albums to drop in the first half of 2012. Now it’s time to dig a little deeper and go line for line, bar for bar. In hip-hop, it’s all about having that one rap that smacks of brilliance (and sometimes, hilarity) and punches the competition in the face. 
There are some undeniable ones on our list—shout to Drake and Rock Ross. But some sleepers made the cut, too. So while the summer heats up, pop a cold one and check out the coolest bars that 2012 has had to offer (so far).
