TR 808 The 10 Best Trap Tracks of 2012

Trap is one of those genres that either sucks you in immediately, or you instantly loathe. There are many trap detractors (detraptors?), but the rise of southern rap in the mainstream has helped this sound prosper. 2012 was the year that everything clicked for the sound, where it became more than just throwing 808s and Trap-A-Holics mixtape drops and hitting "trap" on your sequencer. The sound went global!

That's right, dance music heads on both sides of the Atlantic fell in love with the sound, with scenes being born often. Almost too quickly; there's already a massive amount of trap originals, remixes, and refixes out here on your Internets. These 10 here? These are without a doubt the most lethal trap tracks to touch down in 2012, from Flosstradamus to TNGHT.
