As 2012 comes to a close, and we enjoy the holiday season, alive and well (yup, we made it, Mayans!), its time to take a look back at the releases this year and select the best of the best.  As with last year, since the focus of this site is always live music and we’re discussing studio albums, we’re providing a live song from each artist who made the list.

Wale took the stage at Highline Ballroom earlier this week for his highly anticipated A Show About Nothing, fresh off the release of the excellent More About Nothing mixtape.  Presented by Rap Radar, Wale and his go-go band UCB tore through tracks off the tape, with the horns blaring and drums banging on all night.  J Cole and Fabolous made guest appeaerances during the set to the crowd’s delight.  ATWL was in the house, so here’s our full, exclusive recording of the show.

We’re back with more from Wale’s show in NYC last week.  You already heard Kid Cudi’s surprise performance of Day N Nite here, and now we proudly present more exclusive recordings from the concert. First up is Wale doing a fantastic cover of Tribe’s “Electric Relaxation”, with some go-go flavor, as well as the first single off of his debut album, Attention:Deficit, “Chillin”.   Both sound great live with UCB and should hold you over until Back To The Feature finally hits the internet.

Elitaste hooked up a soundboard source of Wale’s complete set from his show at Mezzanine last week.  From what I gather, the energy of the crowd was amazing and the show itself is sick.  Wale, and his backing Go Go band, UCB, absolutely killed it.  He also performed 2 songs from his upcoming debut release, “Pretty Girls” and “Chillin”.  Hit the jump for the tracklist and the link.
