top10

Schoolboy Q – Oxymoron – Representing Hoover Street, Q brings West Coast Gangsta Rap on his first major label project with catchy, chant-like hooks and A-list guests. [My Review]

<Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Piñata – Gangsta Gibbs’ gritty lyrics sound exceptional over the raw and standout production Madlib is famous for.

Theophilus London – Vibes – Listen to a melodic and electronic alternative R&B album that boasts executive production from Kanye West and an appearance from Leon Ware.

Run the Jewels – Run the Jewels 2 – Rapper Killer Mike and producer El-P solidify their impressive chemistry as a duo on their hard-hitting sequel with unorthodox, but satiating beats.

D’Angelo and The Vanguard – Black Messiah – D’Angelo’s much-needed album feasibly addresses political issues and meshes various eras of R&B over upbeat instrumentation.

Big K.R.I.T. – Cadillactica – The self-proclaimed King of the South spits transparent rhymes, and his production manages to surprisingly resemble beats from Outkast’s classic, Aquemini at times.

PRhyme – PRhyme Royce da 5’9″’s raw lyrics over DJ Premier’s exquisite beats create an exceptional 9-track album you’ll need to play multiple times to truly appreciate all of its clever wordplay.

Flying Lotus – You’re Dead! – Experience a Jazz infused death trip accompanied by Kendrick Lamar, Snoop, and Thundercat interspersed among  psychedelic, funky and divine instrumentals.

YG – My Krazy Life – Take a trip  through Bompton with beats that embody the traditional West Coast sound reminiscent of classic acts like early N.W.A. and Tha Dogg Pound.

Pharrell Williams  –  G  I  R  L – Enjoy a feel-good, uplifting album rejoicing femininity from the legendary Pharrell Williams featuring everyone from Daft Punk to Alicia Keys. [My Review]
