Top Ten of Twenty Twelve: Nick Testa (The Nightbeast)

The Nightbeast’s Nick Testa

In Fall 2011, the probably love child of Har Mar Superstar and T-Pain, Nightbeast, reemerged with his sophomore EP, You’re Welcome.  The follow-up to his debut, Inside Jokes For Outside Folks (which featured contributions from dudes from Punchline, Hawthorne Heights and even Say Anything’s Max Bemis), the LP is a effervescent, celebratory romp featuring a humorous, pop-culture obsessed MC who touches on everything from The Adventures of Milo and Otiz to The Princess Bride.
Ghettoblaster caught up with Nightbeast, (aka. Nick Testa) to ask him what he’s been listening to in 2012.  Here’s the list he provided:
OK, here goes. I’m not really good at keeping up with current music.  But, I know what I love. Some of these releases were from well before this last year.  I’ve been living in a cave for years… Here is what I started listening to this year. It’s what I like. Eat shit. Get wild.
