A cast-iron pot propped over a fire in the dark. A tropical beach shimmering with broken glass. This Bandcamp blurb tells the story of this project. Moor Mother and billy woods have great chemistry together, and they recruited exactly the right artists for the guest spots on this project. For others, BRASS may be somewhat of a slow-burner, a project though that will reward multiple listenings.
BRASS is a great album. The Rugged Man is one of our favorite personalities in the Hip Hop game: he is totally authentic and says what he thinks, no matter what other people think about his opinions. But R. Few, if any emcees can go bar-for-bar with R. The Rugged Man. His technical skill, his incredible flow, his breath control, and his bar-building skills are second to none. Anyone who saw him performing live knows he can rock a crowd too — as a real emcee should be able to.
Is it on par with his previous work? Well, yes it is. For those unfamiliar with R. The Rugged Man, the album may seem a bit schizophrenic. Some songs are personal or emotional, about family and fatherhood and such, other songs have some conscious and political tendencies, some are about Hip Hop history and some songs have that typical R.
What all songs have in common though is R. Ice T. Chuck D. Kool G Rap. DJ jazzy Jeff. Brand Nubian. Ghostface Killah. Inspectah Deck. Masta Killa. Chino XL. Immortal Technique. Vinnie Paz. And others besides — this has to be one of the most impressive guest lists ever. Despite all these guests, this is very much a Rugged Man album, though — he is never outshined and nowhere overcrowded.
Awesome rhyming, amazing features, and fire production too. Fans of mainstream pop-rap will likely not like this album, older heads and those in tune with Hip Hop history will. This is a perfect album for the HHGA demographic. Gary, Indiana phenomenon Freddie Gibbs is like a modern-day Ice-T in a way: maybe not the best rapper ever, but the leader of the pack anyway.
Freddie Gibbs has had enough solid releases in the past decade, but his stand-outs are the two albums he did with Madlib — Pinata and Bandana both are modern classics. If Alfredo will eventually be considered to be on that Pinata and Bandana level remains to be seen, but most ingredients are there.
Fortunately, there are not a lot of misses, if any. Freddie Gibbs is on top of his game here. His recognizable voice, flow, delivery, and cadences sound as good as ever, and his connection with The Alchemist is as strong as it is with Madlib. Luckily Alfredo is not cluttered with guests and features are limited to appearances by Rick Ross, Im Getting Better - The Spencer Davis Group - You Put The Hurt On Me (Vinyl) the Butcher, Tyler The Creator, and Conway the Machine — who all come through with great verses.
Alfredo is paced and sequenced perfectly, and is over before you know it — which leads to the only complaint and the only reason it is not ranked even higher here: Alfredo is just too short. Alfredo is short, sharp, and punchy, with top-tier lyricism and songwriting from Freddie Gibbs, and a perfect collection of instrumentals from The Alchemist — 10 tracks, no filler, all killer. Alfredo is a keeper. Download Alfredo. Ever since that monumental debut except for a 4-year break between andArrested Development has continued to create quality music in ever-changing line-ups frontman Speech is the only AD-member who has always in the group since its inception in With Public Enemy, Paris, and Arrested Development all dropping new quality albums, September 25 truly proved to be a memorable day for conscious Hip Hop, showing that Hip Hop as an art form still is perfectly suited to bring a meaningful message the people.
Both Public Enemy and Paris dropped albums that are among their best since their work in the s, and the same can be said unreservedly about this Arrested Development project. Between RTJ4 and Shrinesthe 1st week of June was a great week for political rap and forward-thinking music. Where RTJ4 is hard-hitting and in-your-face, Shrines is more subtle and layered — but no less intelligent and thought-provoking.
Masterfully produced left-field instrumentals serve as claustrophobic backdrops for a barrage of dense and dizzying lyrics. By now we know what to expect from Armand Hammer.
Ferreira — among others. A stacked features list, but a carefully curated one — none of these artists feel out of place here. Shrines is singularly attuned to the grim political and societal realities of This is not a casual listen by any means, but an album that demands — and rewards — close attention and engagement. Shrines is another Armand Hammer master class in left-field Hip Hop, and a superlative continuation of their hot streak.
On Rocket To Nebula we get the same kind of stream-of-consciousness type lyricism we know from Killah Priest, filled with his characteristic abstract metaphysical musings and slick subliminals.
Musically, this album is totally different from his best works though — there are no bass-heavy beats to be found here, in fact, the whole album is practically drumless. Download Rocket To Nebula. Highlights on Mt. LOTS of albums similar to Mt. Add pristine lyricism to the pristine production and what you get is another Roc Marci winner, and one of the top albums of the year. Following their supremely underrated debut collaboration My 1st Chemistry SetDetroit emcee Boldy James and top-tier producer The Alchemist team up again for the long-awaited The Price Of Tea In Chinatheir second collaborative full-length project.
Their Boldface EP from late proved to be a great appetizer for this project — we get powerful Detroit style lyrics from Boldy James and elegantly understated boom-bap beats from The Alchemist, and the synergy between the two is as tangible as ever. The album holds 12 tracks, all masterfully produced and expertly sequenced, with just the right amount of features.
Lots of artists today tend to clutter their projects with guests, on The Price Of Tea In China Boldy James avoided that trap and went the exact right route. Only 4 of the 12 tracks feature guest appearances, and the guests Boldy James recruited — Freddie Gibbs, Benny The Butcher, Vince Staples, and Evidence — all are A-listers who add their own distinct flavor to the album. In this day and age of short hype circles, The Price Of Tea In China is one of the exceptions — an album that will prove to have staying power.
Killah Priest had a great year in Killah Priest is an acquired taste, but those with the patience and capacity to surrender to his stream-of-consciousness philosophizing will find a lot to unpack and enjoy here. Unlike most horror-movie sequels, the second part of this clipping diptych is even better than the already formidable Im Getting Better - The Spencer Davis Group - You Put The Hurt On Me (Vinyl) part.
More immersive, more intense, more bloodcurdling. Like There Existed an Addiction to BloodVisions of Bodies Being Burned is far from a casual listen, with its genre-bending and its boundary-pushing blend of ambient, industrial, techno, noise, and Hip Hop — the horror-theme adding to the uncanny and hallucinatory vibe that is consistently maintained from start to finish. Unlike many other artists who make the same album over and over again, this eclectic Detroit rapper never takes the easy way out, instead, he is always looking for new directions.

On the Reject 2 cover, Conway is facing fully away from the camera with his naked torso showcasing his bullet wounds, one on the back of his head and one on his shoulder.
He is one the hardest rappers out, but on this album he comes off vulnerable at times too, making FKTG one of his best-rounded projects yet — his growth as an artist and as a person throughout the years evident.
The album contains 14 tracks, with a few monologues from DJ Shay, the something of a mentor figure to Griselda who passed away recently.
Only a few months after his collaborative album with top-producer The Alchemist, the excellent The Price Of Tea In ChinaBoldy James dropped this completely different but equally captivating project. Manger On McNichols is a release that has been a long time coming, a result of a collaboration with fellow Detroiter and veteran producer Sterling Toles that started over 10 years ago.
Much of the lyrics on Manger On McNichols were recorded between andwith some new lyrics added to a couple of tracks to finish the album for its release. Because of its experimental vibe, Manger On McNichols probably is more of an acquired taste and less likely to appeal to wider audiences than TPOTIC and other Boldy James projects do, but it is an intriguing listening experience that deserves attention.
Download Manger On McNichols. LSD lysergic acid diethylamideis a hallucinogenic chemical compound, first synthesized in Hip Hop artist Cambatta is known for his thought-provoking and psychedelic-inspired rhyme techniques. This album was created throughout four years of psychedelic usage and reality-based life-changing events. This process has made the album a duality of both real and surreal interpretations.

Download The Allegory. Walking With Lions is a textbook example of how it should be done. In this era of unlimited music streaming and short hype circles, a lot of artists seem to more concerned with producing quantity instead of quality. Ras Kass, El Gant, and J57 clearly went the other way.
Everything is done right here — from the razor-sharp lyricism to the flawless production to the sequencing of the songs to the cover-art — the total package is dope as f.
This is an excellent blend of traditional and avant-garde Hip Hop — hopefully Walking With Lions is not a one-off, if they can keep this up Jamo Gang will give Run The Jewels a run for their money. Download Walking With Lions. Why is that? Dropping an album in the last two weeks of December even KRS One has his own reasons for this specific release date is not the best move to make from a marketing and promotion point of view.
NO ONE! His voice is unique and still as powerful as it has ever been. His eloquence and articulateness are unparalleled. His rhyme-structuring is one of a kind and his lyrical content is always relevant and Im Getting Better - The Spencer Davis Group - You Put The Hurt On Me (Vinyl). Lyrically, few have ever been able to touch KRS One. The beats on Between Da Protests could and should have been better, though. Imagine KRS-One getting with DJ Premier or Apollo Brown for a full album, plus releasing it on a label that understands how to market and promote an album in a way befitting the status of an industry icon — that would be something.
Maybe KRS-One can go for a collaboration with a top-producer and opt for a release on a strong Hip Hop label for album number 24? Download Between Da Protests. One day they coincidentally signed up for the same slot in one of the recording studios facilitated by PEOPLE organizers. In AprilGreg asked Jonas for the audio from the session. When Greg sent Serengeti the completed track a few weeks later, they liked it and decided to make a full-length album.
While Serengeti wrote lyrics, Greg produced some classical-and-Broadway-inspired tracks. Each time Serengeti received a new track in his inbox, instead of listening to it first, he would immediately press record and record his verses. All the lead vocals for the tracks on this album were done this way. Custom writing help is not prohibited by any university or college.
