Now I’m officially nervous about dropping this Best Music of 2012 list before December 6, when Laurenovich is scheduled to drop his Mandatory Brunch Meetings mixtape.

The queen piece on the chess board scores another one. My lady passed this along to me this evening and I couldn’t help but post it under the She Likes section of music she puts me on to. It’s hard to place this into a genre, but the music is dope and the video is [...]
