FAVORITE HIP HOP ALBUMS OF 2015. (SO FAR)
Fuck off Dark Sky Paradise was literal shit
- 1.I Don't Like Shit I Don't Go Outside- Earl SweatshirtDark, lo-fi beats on this record are one of the reasons why it's my favorite. I am also impressed that he made all of them himself. Some of these songs have my favorite lyrics of 2015. They were very clever. Pls listen. Favorite Tracks: Faucet, Grief, Inside, Wool, DNA MF Doom would be proud.
- 2.To Pimp a Butterfly- Kendrick LamarIt's fucking Kendrick. Momma had a cool chillwave-like beat and that made me happy. aka knxwledge which is gr8. Favorite Tracks: Wesley's Theory, i, Alright, Momma
- 3.Evermore: The Art of Duality- The UnderachieversI felt high the entire time listening to this. Issa's voice is dope. Beast Coast af. Thought it was interesting how they split the sides of the album by tone. V good album. They have the airy beats down. Q Existential, similar to Indigoism. Favorite Tracks: Rain Dance, Chasing Faith, The Dualist, We the Hope
- 4.Summertime 06- Vince StaplesWowza Clams Casino producing three of my favorite tracks on this album. Not sure if this is gangsta rap or not but whatever it is its v good. I like that he featured Kilo Kish on two of the songs too bc she is cool. Too bad he had weird anti-abortion lyrics on some songs :/// Lemme Know had awesome layering of lyrics w/ Jhené & Vince Favorite Tracks: Norf Norf, Lemme Know, Summertime, Surf, 3230, Birds and Bees
- 5.B4.DA.$$- Joey Bada$$I like this 90s revival shit. Also from beast coast which is dope. I really enjoyed his album prior to this one as well. Favorite Tracks: Hazeus View, Paper Trail$, No. 99, Belly of the Beast
- 6.If You're Reading This Its Too Late- DrakeTypically I don't like most of Drakes stuff but this album was very good. There are some hawt bangers on here. Favorite Tracks: Legend, 6 Man, Energy. Also enjoying Hotline Bling
