Coming in at No. 2 is Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz. Some people may question Tity Boi being ranked this high, but there's no denying the fact that he was everywhere in 2012.

"No Lie" has since been certified platinum with sales over 1 million.
2 Chainz also appeared on A$AP Rocky's "F*ckin' Problems," Nicki Minaj's "Beez in the Trap," Kanye West's "Mercy" and many more.
Coming in at No. 1 on the list is Compton's Kendrick Lamar. The Top Dawg Entertainment artist came into his own in 2012.
K. Dot's good kid, m.A.A.d city album sold 242,000 copies in its first week and has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The project featured the hit singles "Swimming Pools (Drank)" and "Poetic Justice."
Kendrick made guest appearances on A$AP Rocky's "F*ckin' Problems," Birdman's "B-Boyz"; Schoolboy Q's "Blessed" and A$AP's "1 Train."
