50 Best Albums of 2012

Frank Ocean reimagined R&B; Dylan drenched us in blood; pop-punk vets, disco orchestras and Scottish oddballs made an election year bearable.


Rick Ross, 'Rich Forever'

Among the many ways in which Rick Ross lives large, you can add this: His mixtapes have better guest stars than other rappers' albums. Drake, Diddy, Pharrell, Kelly Rowland and a recharged Nas ride with Rawse, and with swirling, dense beats spurring the headliner's unmatched confidence, Rich Forever blows like a hurricane. It's not his first victory lap, and it won't be his last. "Get it straight off the boat, yeah, my life is a movie/Got a three-story mansion, big saltwater Jacuzzi," he announces. He's still inventing brash new ways to say, "Fuck you."
