Don’t get me wrong it was a fantastic album, but If you guys truly think TMTYL was the best akbum so far this year, you really need to expand outside of Strange Music a little. To each their own I suppose.
Reks – Straight, No Chaser
Bumpy Knuckles & DJ Premier – Kolexxxion
Schoolboy Q – Habits & Contradictions was dope as hell.
Wont be album of the year material, but A$AP Rockys album should be dope.
Kendricks solo Good Kids In A Mad City should be great.
Also looking forward to Ab-Souls upcoming album Control System dropping the 11th.
Godfathers by Kool G & Necro looks promising.
Really can’t wait for R.A. The Rugged Mans Legends Never Die.
REBELutionary by Reks & Numonics will be nice. Reks has been killin it.
Skelethon by Aseop Rock will be nice.
Mourning In America & Dreaming In Color by Brother Ali will be dope.
Act II: Patents of Nobility by Jay Electonica (If it actually drops) will be the most hyped album of the year, so hyped that it can probably never live up to it, but can still be an instant classic.
And it probably wont happen, but an album by Earl Sweatshirt would be amazing. That kid has more potential than anyone in the game.
But, I’m predicting Life’s Good by Nas will be the album of the year.
Lots of good shit coming out this year. Legends are dropping shit, and balance is finally returning back to Hip-Hop with all these young cats. Don’t confine yourself to just Strange releases.
