The Ten Best Latin Alternative Albums of 2012
1. Ana Tijoux
Ana Tijoux isn't just a Spanish-speaking rapper from Chile -- she's one of the world's best lyricists, period. On La Bala, Tijoux touches on Latin American politics and hard knocks with a flow that's quite adaptable to her beats. La Bala was released back in January, and other than Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.a.a.d city (which has been dominating year-end lists) hers has probably been the best reviewed.
