The stuff that I loved and kept in rotation all year.
Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut
"Losing my lenience, moving with meaning
It’s two of me, and truthfully, this duality the root of my genius
Angels is hoodrats, depending on the angle you look at
Hanging with crooks, black straps came with the book bags"
Album of the year no contest. Unique production and this kid just rapping his ass off over every beat. If you dont listen to Kenny Mason, you need to fix that ASAP.
The House Is Burning
I waited 5 years for this guy to drop another album, and it did not disappoint at all.
Headshots has the best hook of any song this year. Whole album is smooth as butter.
To Hell With It
This album is 18 minutes long and there is not a single second of filler on it. Catchiest album of 2021
The Romance of Affliction
Its like they took their last 2 albums and smushed them together and sprinkled some 2000s era core elements into that bitch. Love it.
"We dyin broke or live with broken hearts."
This guy just doesn't miss.
Play With The Changes
R&B album of the year
By The Time I Get To Phoenix
"I felt loss but a hole like this I never coulda imagined
Your pattern's still in place, algorithm's still in action"
Amazing project. RIP Groggs
This guy just doesn't miss (2)
metalcore ep of the year.
|10||Every Time I Die|
A huge step up from Low Teens. Their 2nd best album right behind New Junk.
Certified Lover Boy
Best album Drake's dropped since 2017. Champagne Poetry, Fair Trade, Race My Mind, Get Along Better, Fair Trade, 7 AM on Bridle Path, TSU, all top tier Drake tracks. This is what Scorpion should've been.
2nd best R&B album of this year. Smooth as butter.
Best pop album of the year. Follow The Leader, You Lose, and Secrets are just *chefs kiss* perfect
Måsstaden Under Vatten
Another album that I waited years for and it delivered. Love when that happens. This shit is all I ever needed from them.
Bitch Where has to be one of the hardest opening songs to any album of 2021. Keef sounds so aggressive on this.
Fragments of a Bitter Memory
the vocalist sounds like she's out for blood on this album.
Smooth as butter (3)
Shut The Fuck Up Talking To Me
Truthfully shocked at how hard this goes. Did not expect Zack Fox of all people to drop a heater.
Kaytranada doing what he does best, just making shit you can groove to. And that's really all I need from him.
Weight Of The World
Would be cool to hear Maxo and Tyler collab more often. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ALBUM, MAXO IS FIRE.
Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 3
Tkay always delivers. Check out her cover of Where is My Mind. She's awesome.
A Tear in the Fabric of Life
This shit just bangs. I heard someone on here describe this band as caveman metal and it made me die laughing but that's exactly what these guys make, and it just goes sooooo hard lmfaoooo
400LB BACK SQUAT
This is a fun lil album. Not even sure how I discovered this Bilmuri dude but I'm glad I did. Roidmage is one of my favorite songs of the year.
|24||Born of Osiris|
Angel or Alien
This shit just bangs (2)
Honestly this project has like 3 amazing songs and the rest are just dumb interludes, but I've been listening to this band all year long so I felt obligated to give them a spot on the list.
B4 I Breakdown
This came out last year but IDC, it didn't get enough love and nobody on here listens to her so I'm just gonna show her some love cus this album is just too good to be slept on.
This was cool.
Hot Pink was way better but this is still fun and my girl loves it, and Doja is fire so she makes the list.
If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power
Never really expected to have Halsey on my year end list, but here we are. Her and Trent/Atticus make a great combo.
Such a feel-good album. The live performance set he did for this rules too.
The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was
Great ep with a very powerful theme.
Daisy - S.O.M.E EP
Robb Bank$ - Few Pillz
Tyler The Creator - Call Me If You Get Lost
AKTHESAVIOR - Hiatus
