You know the deal. Skillz recaps the past 12 months with skill and verve and a hint of comedy. Apparently, the 2012 “Rap Up” doubles as a bonus cut on Thoughts Become Things, which is up for grabs on iTunes now.

Key references: Gagnam Style, Aurora theater shooting, Blue Carter, Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta, 2 Chainz, Obama’s re-election, Chik-fil-A’s homophobic stance, the sorry ass Lakers, Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey, Hurricane Sandy, Trinidad James, and more.

Also, Skillz hints at this being the conclusion to the series: “I’m wrapping up ‘The Rap Up,’ y’all it’s been 10 years.” Damn, it’s been that long?

Anyway, hear it below.
