100 Great Chicago Rap Songs Of 2012

FSD Staff

42. Onis “Ciabatta”
Producer: Nascent
Album: The Time Is Now

There was a lot of chatter surrounding Onis’ The Time Is Now project, which is hosted by DJ Burn One. And to build the hype, Onis put his money where his mouth was when he dropped the song and video for “Ciabatta,” which silenced any naysayers and helped him pick up a slew of new fans. The smooth soundscape courtesy of Nascent was the exact coming out party Onis needed. Get that bread, young man.

    Who in the hell came up with this list? You have a lot of unknown and don’t deserve to be up here songs and S.Dot songs not on here…A lie!!

  • BiggiesWarning

    I gave up after 10 clicks. The energy wasted just clicking on this doesn’t rectify the amount of snoozers listed. If the top ten listed here is supposed to be the best we had to offer then Chicago had a pretty mediocre year.

  • MyHonestOpinion

    I must say, I spent a LONG time listening to all these artists to be on a fair note before commenting, but I must say, 80% of this list is hot garbage, just my opinion. I am 100% for indie artists but if you’re putting in that much time to make music, please come with a little more substance! Even if you’re rocking your party anthems or trapping out, you can still come with something a bit more well rounded and thought out. I’ve heard a shit load of amazing indie artists out of Chicago this year and I’m sad to see that literally two or three of them are on this list

  • PoPimp85

    I’m bias to begin with, because I grew up on CWAL and Chicago music of the same in the mid 90’s to early 2000’s. So, it’s immediately hard for me to enjoy most of this music, but there are some gems from time to time, so I give it a listen. But, this list, and 99.9% of the tracks on this list were garbage in my opinion. They pretty much all sound the same with no substance. I don’t know what happened to Chicago rap/hip hop, but I want it back.

  • Boogie

    What a fuckin joke of a list. It should’ve been called “the latest ignorant chi-town ghetto bullshit” list. How can you listen to this trash?

  • Download Beats

    Man I ain’t finna click that shit 100 times, but I will say Hip-Hop’s been riding Chicago’s dick a lot lately.

  • Yo!
