Oddisee is easily one of my favorite emcees of the past decade. The Iceberg is his latest album. Once again he gives us lyricism, smooth and varied flows over great production.
One of NY’s finest emcees, Roc Marciano, released his anticipated Rosebudd’s Revenge. Ka & Knowledge The Pirate are the sole guests.
After Future’s suprise release last week with FUTURE, he doesn’t give fans a lot of time to let it sink in. HNDRXX is another album. Rihanna & The Weeknd are the guests.
Future drops his new self-titled album with little promotion. FUTURE clocks in just over an hour, without features. It marks Future’s fifth album release, following the well-received Evol.
Lupe Fiasco keeps his word and released his DROGAS Light album. Ty Dolla Sign, Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T. and others are featured on the 14-track project. This is nice, but I’m waiting on DROGAS.
Sampha’s debut album is out now. I knew this would be good, with impeccable singles like Blood On Me and No One Knows Me (Like The Piano), which you can stream below.
Once thought to be soon forgotten, years later more popular than ever. The Migos trio have certainly become part of the Hiphop culture and they celebrate it with their latest album.
Rapper Big Pooh has improved a lot. He follows up his solid projects with Nottz & Apollo Brown with Everything 4 Sale.
Ras Kass dropped one of the most random and weirdest albums of the year. It includes a Dubstep intro, a Frozen Let It Go remix and, why not…his classic Nature Of The Threat.
Just before the year ends, El-P & Killer Mike come through with one of the better albums of 2016, Run The Jewels 3.
24hrs ends a strong year with the four-track Sunset Blvd EP. Post Malone is the sole guest on the standout cut, Malibu, which you can stream below. Hit download for the whole thing.
After Dom Kennedy & Hit-Boy’s Half-A-Mil, we get a Dom Kennedy solo album. Unfortunately, his old flow isn’t there on this album.
Yo Gotti drops White Friday a.k.a. CM9. The tape features Kanye West, Big Sean, Quavo, DJ Khaled, Blac Youngsta, YFN Lucci & Kodak Black.
J Dilla’s mother released a new Dilla compilation with some unheard music on it, called Jay Dee’s Ma Dukes Collection.
Mos Def is retiring from music, but before he goes, he releases the Dec 99th album. It’s a collaborative effort with Ferrari Sheppard.
I wasn’t familiar with Slim One, but he’s a producer. He enlists Saigon, Termanology, Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Reks, Lil Fame & more.
S.T.S. releases his Ladies Night album, with guest appearances from Torae, Kyle Lucas, Chill Moody, Terrace Martin & more.
Black Soprano Family front man & Griselda affiliate Benny released his 17 Bullets EP. If you’re not familiar with Benny yet, I suggest you start changing that today.
T.I. dropped a surprise album. We get a full-length album, continuing where he left off with the Us Or Else EP.
Mozzy and Trae teamed up for a full-length album. The tape features Snoop Dogg, Jadakiss, Dave East & a bunch of lesser known guests.
Here is the first The LOX (Jadakiss, Styles P & Sheek Louch) album in 16 years. It features Fetty Wap, Mobb Deep & Gucci Mane.
Gucci releases the The Return Of East Atlanta Santa album, featuring Drake, Bryson Tiller & Travis Scott.
Cudi’s new Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ album is here. Stream an Andre 3000 featured cut below and hit download for the full album.
