Best of Denver

The twenty best hip-hop shows of 2012

As much of a stronghold as our town is for EDM, Denver is also a hotbed of hip-hop. Although we've always held true to the assertion, and such a declaration would seem perfectly reasonable to even casual observers, the point was never driven home more definitively than when we took a look back at the number of acts that came through town in 2012. While it was a daunting task, we paged through all of our write-ups over the past year and singled out the twenty best hip-hop shows. Keep reading to see which ones we picked, and, as always, feel free to add to the discussion below if you think we left something out.
