Face it, 2012 was kind of an epic year for music. Kanye and Jay stayed on top of the throne, but left plenty of room for newcomers like Trinidad Jame$ and Chicago native Chief Keef to dominate the airwaves with a fresh twist on hip-hop. Just about every site, including us, has done the deed of listing all their favorite songs, rappers, and albums of this year, ranking the aforementioned, but very few of them have what we have: A secret deadly weapon known as DJ Nana Kobra

LIST: The 12 Best Singles Of 2012 

GlobalGrind’s Digital Product Director by day, and sultry DJ by night, Nana Kobra is a Canadian born hip-hop DJ known for her trap mashups that are inspired by dirty south beats and influenced by the recent emergence of EDM. Her love for trap knows no boundaries and extends long beyond the mainstream with sets that intertwine sounds from the likes of RL Grime, String Theory, and Flosstradamus. 

LIST: The 12 Best Albums Of 2012
