Dramacydal Tv: From The Homies Over At 2DBZ, Year End List Of What Was Hot And What Was Not In Hip Hop

As we close in on the New Year (which will be the DopeHouse’s fifth, crazy), Mek and I have put together a list of our favorite projects from the last 365. And like I’ve said the past couple years, this is OUR favorites list. It’s not a “best of” and it’s not us saying everything that’s not listed is trash. It’s simply a break down of whatwe enjoyed the most. So without running the risk of talking too much, hit the jump to see what your favorite (or least favorite) dopeboyz were banging in 2012.
