Here it is. Any other hip hop record that isnt on this list I either forgot to listen to or rjust didn't care enough about it.
Year of the Wolf
The imagery in the bonus track "Bloody Moon" was uncomfortable and very unnecessary. 2.5.
Didn't like this at all the first listen. I should give this another try but I probably won't. 2.5.
Seen it All: The Autobiography
I'm sure we can all agree that "Me Ok" is the best song of 2014. 2.5.
My Krazy Life
|49||50 Cent |
Honestly though, "Don't Worry Bout' it" is an awesome song. 3.0.
|48||Your Old Droog|
Your Old Droog
I really don't see why this album is such a big deal. 3.0.
Silence of Me Eternally
worst album I've heard this entire year, but I'm giving it a 3.
Coming out of the same camp as Lecrae, you should know what to expect. Decent project with
potential to do a lot better. 3.0.
|44||The Grouch and Eligh|
The Tortoise and The Crow
Some Really good songs but way too many duds. 3.0.
This is what happens when you let Spotify discover music for you. Childish Gambino meets
Chance the rapper but not nearly as good, of course. 3.0.
|40||Alpha MC and Pigeon John|
Sorta like a mix between The Doppelgangaz and Vince Staples. 3.0.
Welcome to Fazoland
A lot of good songs but its way too long. 3.0.
Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium
These guys are trying to hard. 3.0.
It's something about Bones and his crew, a lot of their songs are sooo bad they're good, if
that makes sense? 3.5.
Heavy Hearted in Doldrums
Way too many sexual lyrics and the production could use some work. 3.5.
New York Telephone
Very rough and grimy New York style hip-hop album. The gripe I have with this is that the
extent of how great the best songs on this project are, the worst songs are equally as bad.
With all the praise this was getting, I was expecting a lot more. 3.5.
The Infamous Mobb Deep
Jesus, god, lord, savior. This guy can spit and make a good track though. 3.5.
Half of me wants to give this a 1.0 and the other half a 5.0. So I think I'll meet in the
somewhat in middle.3.5.
|27||King Louie |
Best of the Drill. 3.5.
|25|| ||Freddie Gibbs and The World's Freshest|
The Tonite Show
2014 Forest Hills Drive
Life as a Dog
Why did I enjoy an album where some chick is crying about what seems to be her ex as much
as I did? 3.5.
Thought I was going to enjoy this a little bit more, since I am a driver of buses with perfect
Great experimental hip-hop. 3.5.
Do your thing, Common. 3.5.
Hell Can Wait
Dude killed it on "Hive" so I listened to this right away and I was pleased with it. 3.5.
|18||Sir Michael Rocks|
Not the most technical or blah blah blah but nonetheless, it is a very fun listen. 3.5.
Seriously this album has a lot of great tracks and I wanted to rank it higher but like everyone
else, my main complaint is that it's a jumbled mess. 3.5.
|16|| ||Black Milk|
If There's a Hell Below
PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
|13||Open Mike Eagle|
|12||Freddie Gibbs and Madlib|
Subject matter may lack a bit, but definitely his best work to date and I don't care what
anyone says. A very well thought out idea, good bars from Q and the guest verses (I hate to
say it but even 2 Chains), banging beats and a fun listen. What else could you want? 4.0.
March on Washington
First project I've heard from these guys and I was thoroughly impressed. Not one song
sounds the same as another and all the lyrics on point. 4.0.
|8||Run the Jewels|
Run the Jewels 2
A little more of a grower than their previous project. 4.0.
I was truly surprised by how much I enjoyed this album, hopefully he can follow up. 4.0.
So it Goes
Eagles are our brothers and flowers are our daughters. 4.0.
Next to Nothing
Excellent follow up to his slightly disappointing debut. On this record he proves he has more
aspects to his game than the double time flow. 4.0.
Wouldn't expect anything less from him. If you've been sleeping on this guy, stop. 4.0.
|3||Isaiah Rashad |
Wasting no time, this cat comes out of nowhere to prove that he's for real. He has a very
unique flow and flows great over any beat. Who woulda knew the new cat in TDE would walk
away from 2014 with the best project from their camp? 4.0.
Excellent conceptual album that has everything you could ask for. The constant water
references do get stale about halfway through and is the only thing holding this back. 4.0.
a toothpaste suburb
Nerd rap to the max but there's no denying the amount of thought, time and precision that
took to craft the album. Intelligent and intellectual lyrics, dream-like beats and spine-tingling
moments all put together to create this year?s hip-hop album of the year. 4.5.
