The year has coming to a close and since the world didn't end it we are moving forward with 2013. It was an interesting 12 months for Hip Hop; Barack Obama won re-election, Hip Hop artist Mike Scala (Pizon) ran for Congress, Ice-T's the Art of Rap came out, the Hip Hop Gods Tour happened, Detox still didn't come out, a bunch of people started saying Yolo, Shawty Lo got a tv show called "All My Babies' Mamas" approved, and Trinidad James (sigh). Here at OneTwoOneTwo we hope 2012 was a good one and wish you the best for 2013.
With that being said, let's end of the year with what everyone in Hip Hop waits for this time of year, the Skillz 2012 Rap Up.
Skillz 2012 Rap Up http://www.onetwoonetwo.com/skillz-2012-rap-up/ continues what has become an anticipated Hip Hop tradition. This year's recap is included on his new album Thoughts Become Things. Hip Hop heads look forward to the yearly Skillz Rap Ups. This year Skillz came with a different flavor than normal and indicates that this is his last year doing the Rap Up.
