Due to technical difficulties, which may or may not be technical, our Top 50 Hip Hop Songs and Best Albums list won’t drop until next week. What else can I do, all apologies. I believe Paul McCartney wrote that. As a minor recompense, there’s the new episode of Shots Fired, where Nocando and I talk about some our favorite songs from the past year and call out a few rappers for some epic fails. The Earwolf description is below. So is the MP3. Listener discretion is advised if not required.

“This week on Shots Fired, Jeff Weiss & MC Nocando wind down 2012 with their favorite songs of 2012. The duo talk about their choices for Epic Fail of the year, countdown their Top Ten Hip-Hop songs of 2012, and the best producers of the year. It will get turnt up.”
