Without a doubt in my mind, the perfect example of an NYC hip-hop album.

Koopsta Knicca Da Devil's Playground

Lil Wayne Tha Carter IV
Now that I listen to this, it's disappointing for Weezy but giving this a 1 just because it's Lil Wayne and you haven't actually heard the album is dumb.
Lil Wayne Tha Carter II
Modest Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition
Gorgeous, energetic, etc. Basically THE piece to help you get into classical. The best Romantic period composer in my opinion.

Camp Lo Uptown Saturday Night
I never thought I'd be so in love with a jazz hip-hop record so much since I kind assumed it
was all ATCQ knockoffs, and I actually don't like A Tribe that much. This is amazing, the
emcees both have so much charisma along with the catchy-yet-relaxed production. The slang
that seems made-up on the spot just makes some extra unf. Coolie High might be one of the
best hip-hop songs ever. Can't believe this isn't more of a classic.
Charles Mingus Blues & Roots
Clams Casino Rainforest
Knowing he has no rappers to minimize his efforts or make him restrain himself on his production, he goes all out to produce a landscape of lo-fi, beautiful, hazy, drug-induced sound that uses eerie melodies, fuzziness, and imagery that really can make one imagine sprawling bright green foliage and rushing rivers and it makes the music just wash over you.rOh, and it's good when you're high, too.
Converge You Fail Me
D'Angelo Brown Sugar
Lady is the joint to play as a morning soundtrack with a good system. that describes dangelos whole vibe but ladys the song that does it best

DJ Screw Chapter 70 - Endonesia
Drake Take Care
ppl don't seem to get that Drake is more about musicianship than he is trying to be an
amazing rapper. He's a great songwriter and he includes so many great subtleties and subtext
in his lyrics plus goddamn the man can make an amazing melody.
Frank Ocean Channel Orange
i like rating albums as classics an hour after they're released, too.

Lil B God's Father
Need to listen to this a few more times to get a real idea of what to rate it but I will tell you now that in twenty years, when fathers feel that their child is of age to really learn and understand the world, they'll dig a box out of their closet and dust a #rare vinyl of God's Father off before handing it off to their child, with tears glistening in their eyes to help them in their life journey. #ThankYouBasedGod

Drake So Far Gone
Drake Thank Me Later
Amazing primarily pop rap/R&B with personal Drake twists and a story about a young man
thrust into his fame and having to assure himself that he's worth it. Not as artsy as So Far
Gone or Take Care but Aubrey and 40 still knew how to write fantastic poppier songs.
Earl Sweatshirt Doris
Erykah Badu Mama's Gun
Eyedea & Abilities First Born
Pretty cool I mean not that eye-opening or mindblowing but it's thoughtful and the lyricism
is pretty nice. And Abilities is a pretty great producer, he knows Eyedea works best with
these minimalistic beats and makes them these weird futuristic things.
James Blake CMYK
Japandroids Celebration Rock
I'm going to wait til this is reviewed to know what I should think of this.
Justin Bieber Believe
album is pretty damn good, one of the best full pop albums in recent memory. I was really
skeptical when I heard shit like Mistletoe and that this would have some club/"dubstep"-
influenced production on some songs (which makes me throw up when mixed with pop), but he
made it work really well (holy shit did you hear that climax As Long As You Love Me and
Beauty and a Beat?).

He really matured musically and this has very little filler as opposed to My World 2.0, and
it feels a lot more cohesive and has the fantastic closer really makes this feel like an
album and not a collection of possible singles with some other stuff thrown in.

Some of the weak tracks include the opener and Take You (kind of gross generic "electro/R&B"
songs). Also the song with Drake is one of the best Summer R&B songs ever and the bonus
tracks are great. Bieber's on his way to progressing to step up next to Timberlake if he
keeps it up.

Chief Keef Back From The Dead
chief keef has so much potential but he's just too content with puttin out sub-par songs. but I think this Chief Keef is the best chief keef. it's raw shit that just sounds like a dark night in southside Chi town and this is just a dude in a hoodie ready to come out the shadows and buss ya head open any second as opposed to the super catchy mumbly Keef on the album. Designer and I Don't Like are the best songs

Meek Mill Dreams and Nightmares
ties wit OG dreamchasers for meek's best shit. half the songs on this are some of the best he's done. from how hard believe it goes, the rawness of traumatized, the storytelling of tony story 2, but unfortunately some songs like young n gettin it that tries n fails to jump on the future/autotune street music trend n the last few songs (rich famous, real niggas, burn) that all sound like generic radio-appeal mixtape joints that fuck up the whole vibe of this album by the end. with the shitty songsd this would be one of the best rap albums of recent years

Young Jeezy Trap Or Die 2: Reloaded (Mixtape)
its hard to rate a good jeezy project cuz theres always gonna be a lil filler but the heights of the album are so high and usually the project as a whole jus speaks to you and is a war anthem against brokeness. trap or die reloaded is one of jeezys best tracks and talking/hood politics are my shit here

3.0 good
2 Chainz B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time
his sense of flow has gotten perfect this past year, his lyrics/wordplay aint great usually but they're entertaining and usually not trash anymore and some of the beats on here are some of the wildest of the year. maybe this will change but too many songs dont stick with me and too many of the beats are above average radio friendly trap for me to really be into tho
ASAP Ferg Trap Lord
I give ferg the credit of being able to make a good sounding song when he wants. let it go, shabba, hood pope, dump n didn't wanna all sound good for the most part and I can vibe wit the verses. but for the most part ferg bases his rap career/lyrics off trendy "street/gangsta music" buzzwords and boring "new age indie trap beats" to make the whole album enjoyable and his delivery can be interesting at some times and at others he tries too hard to sound different and raps like a male nicki minaj. good songs bogged down by insincerity, studio gangsta-isms and trying to sound different too much. also the work remix sucks but the og work is my favorite ferg song, dat clean ya gun music
Childish Gambino Royalty
the guy who gave it a 2.5 thought Beck killed his verse. guess he's really "turning traumas into nirvanas". ughhhhh.
Eyedea The Many Faces of Oliver Hart
a lot of this is cringeworthily corny, "I'M A LITTLE BIT ON THE WEIIIIIIIIIIIIRD SIIIIDE! HAHAHAHA SO ZANY" and some is "First Born"-level thoughtfulness but Idunno mayne.
James Blake Enough Thunder
A further venture into his piano ballad-y side with a more tamed future garage sound. A
pleasant listen, but can just seem like another art-pop artist at times. He needs to delve
deeper into his CMYK and Klavierwerke days and bring back that. Though keep the vocals like
on his ST because those are gorgeous.
Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Kesha Animal
Lil Wayne Dedication 5
lil wayne back on his hollygrove hood shit but this makes me think of a no ceilings sequel
more than a dedication sequel. his flow and delivery is a lot better and a much better beat
selection and while his lyrics dont infuriate me they dont stick with me neither or make me
spazz out like they'd do in his prime, it all sounds like generic street lyrics with some
pussy lines thrown in for good measure

Kinda fun with some bangers and of course it has that hilarious appeal of him just getting ridiculous and fun with these things but just a pure stream of that is ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. If you like weird ridiculous fun you should at least check this out still.

Justin Bieber Under The Mistletoe
Kanye West Yeezus
Meek Mill Dreamchasers 3
this disappointed the fuck out of me. wit recent events with lil snupe (RIP) and the song he released in his name I thought meek would be coming back wit the real but this album is 75% booboo that all sounds like trendy beats and empty verses that don't stick with you and bring that real street music that makes me fuck wit meek
Spark Master Tape The SWOUP Serengeti
goddamn the vocal pitch thing is fuckin corny and annoying cant even care about the super polished trap edm beats and the horrorcore lyrics I cant remember a line of
Travis Scott Owl Pharaoh
steaming hot trash. the beats are overproduced, full of superfluous sounds and sound like a poverty kanye. the rapping is straight booboo and not only are his lyrics the least interesting of all time with talmbout unrelated things on top of each other and forcing a "dizzick" rhyme and when he gets "deep" it's laughably corny but na$ally scott manages to have the most boring delivery/flow ever that made me not remember a single bar of this. high points of this album are a few good beats (mia, drive, bad mood) and the paul wall/fauntelroy features

1.5 very poor
Lil Wayne I Am Not a Human Being II
