Jay-Z and Kanye West – Watch the Throne


The momentousness of Watch the Throne by Jay-Z & Kanye West has to be eulogized immediately. The motif of the album is erudite yet fashioned into an album ca be liked across the board by music appreciators.

The Weeknd – House of Balloons


Everything about The Weeknd’s House of Balloons. The lyrics. The production by Martin “Doc” McKinney & Carlo “Illangelo” Montagnese. The order of the songs. The timing of when to release it. Et cetera. The work is simply epoch-making.

Drake – Take Care


Have to give this to Drake’s sophomore effort. It is a manifold of glittering music. What’s more, it contains my dearest track of the year (“Marvins Room”), preferred hip-hop beat of the year (“Lord Knows”) and it includes an Andre 3000 verse. And, yeah, a single verse by 3000 is that persuasive.

Fabolous –Β Pain


Off of his Soul Tape project, Fabolous’ lyrics for “Pain”each bar was free of deceit. Reason enough for me.

Jadakiss –Β Lil Bruh


If there was one song I would want every minor in each ghetto of America, maybe even worldwide, to listen to, it would be “Lil Bruh” off of Jadakiss’s I Love You: A Dedication to My Fans – The Mixtape.
