Reasons that MellowHype's BLACKENEDWHITE is the rap album to beat of the year:
1.) Hodgy Beats is a monster on the mic with a ton of style and charisma
2.) Left Brain is one of the best / most innovative producers currently in hip-hop
3.) Odd Future collectively shit on 95% of the rap game lyrically, including the washed-up "greats" who refuse to retire and retain some of their dignity as they hit their 40's
BLACKENEDWHITE is one of the best releases from the Odd Future collective, and exhibits both talent and youthful energy. From shocking lyrics, to hard beats, BLACKENEDWHITE is a really fun album that holds up well to replays.
