2014 - Meh Year For Hip-hop?

Diskus pls. List is just shit that I actually did listen to for the majority of the year.
1Sean Leon
narcissus, THE DROWNING OF EGO


Canadian dude with the "CAKE, CAKE CAKE CAKE CAKE" producer bringing some highly superficial
ignorance with a sense of self-awareness, my personal favorite out of the whole year, search
Pretty Girls Put Boys In Cemeteries (or just: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMKTPCLO2UY)
2Mac Miller
Faces


Definition of a filler mixtape but enjoyable at least, and all without a Jay feature.
3Schoolboy Q
Oxymoron


The hype train fucking derailed but I still enjoyed the majority of the effort, still feeling fucked over in a sense due to the whole sampling issues
causing the album to turn an ear more towards radio appeal than the genuine gangster shit back on H&C, hopefully we'll see some restoration
on the next release.
4Isaiah Rashad
Cilvia Demo


To be honest, I fell asleep during my 2nd listen through of this shit but it's still p. cool for a
mellow mixtape with some slight emo insights on the trimmings.
5Domo Genesis
Under The Influence 2


Pretty much what it says, direct sequel to Dom's growth, only wishing I'd catch more of the
same dude that was over Rusty and SS4.
6Freddie Gibbs and Madlib
Pinata


Obligatory mention since everyone's turning this (or RTJ2) into their rap AOTY, I'm still not
getting the absolute hype behind it but the chemistry between Gibbs and a Madlib beat is still an
impressive one.
7Mick Jenkins
The Water[s]


Another album I almost slept through (un)surprisingly with the production being as soft as the
running waters Jenkins is constantly rapping about but a pretty good lyrical showcase regardless.
8ASAP Ferg
Ferg Forever


Pure whip material, tracks 7 - 11 gotta go though. Let It Go 2 & Doe-Active are my candidates
for some of the hypest production of the year. + NV is the literal equivalent to Domo x Tyler -
Super Market and we need more of these tracks.
9Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels 2


Obligatory mention, haven't gotten to yet with me being weighed down by absolutely nothing but
not being able to understand shit El-P means to this day, I'll sit down and listen with RapGenius
open in another tab sometime.
10J. Cole
2014 Forest Hills Drive


Surprisingly kept me awake through the entire LP, good shit Jermaine. Now if only you could dull
down that ego, turn down the diet Drake tendencies and make more shit like the first half,
specially A Tale of Two Citiez.
