Now that we've had time to digest all the great albums and mixtapes that came out. Usually takes me longer to work out whether I like a rap album than an 'indie' or dance one. Maybe I'm biased because this was the year I finally let more rap music into my life , but I think it's been a stellar 12 months.
For my pick, I honestly couldn't choose between Schoolboy Q's 'Habits and Contradictions' and Kendrick Lamar's 'good kid, m.A.A.d city'. Both excellent releases from the Black Hippy crew. Have also been enjoying material by Action Bronson and Danny Brown.
Very curious to know what's actually had staying power with people this year?
