4- Love Story - Yelawolf:
A very dope collaboration between the Wu-Tang legend and the rising Jazz trio BBNG. I hope this leads to more creative output from Ghostface and more Hip-Hop collaborations between BBNG and other notable rappers.
Another solid Big K.R.I.T. mixtape filled with is signature production and Southern flavoured rap.
A great short EP filled with stellar lyricism from Lupe.
A great extension of Mike's Dark Comedy filled with witty and funny lyrics.
Another album that was difficult to leave off from my list, a very cohesive and well executed East-Coast debut album from this very talented rapper.
A very solid West Coast Hip-Hop album.
Cherry Bomb – Tyler, the Creator
A very messy disappointment following Wolf, which was a great album. The vocals weren't mixed well and the content wasn't anything special.
Some of the chances taken by Bronson didn't pay off and led to some very awkward moments, still a decent album but not an impressive major debut.
Decent but did not match the quality of Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap. I understand these are different projects but my expectations were very high and they weren't met.
Had high expectations for this due to his great debut album Long.Live.A$AP, however this album was filled with very boring tracks and mostly disappointing features. Not horrible but not that great either.
The Incredible True Story - Logic
This is a good album but did not give me half of what his debut Under Pressure gave me. Some great beats and good lyricism, but the concept didn't work and the content wasn't as deep as what I wanted it to be
