What's happened with 2014?
I haven't been on /mu/ in a while, but I haven't heard as many good albums this year as opposed to last year. I can only name 4 that I like so far.
Can /mu/ show me some of the good releases from this year that I can give a listen? I wanna fill up this chart
>>
>>51834286
ew

the hellfyre releases were all ok

furtive movements was really nice

the new doppelgangaz was cool

haven't really been keeping up this year tbh i've just been exploring old shit
>>
>Mastermind
>Welcome to Fazoland
>RetroHash
>Rich Gang: Tha Tour
>>
>>51834286
Clippings album that came out in the summer, and Pinata
>>
>>51834353
fazoland was good and free crack 2 wasn't bad

mastermind and retrohash were both fucking abysmally bland though

kevin gates has put out some great stuff this year and the new common and cormega albums were solid
>>
>>51834286
Isaiah Rashad - Cilvia Demo

My Krazy Life and Pinata were both great, probably better than any hip hop on your chart so far. You should also check out The Water[s] by Mick Jenkins, Hell Can Wait EP by Vince Staples, Cilvia Demo by Isaiah Rashad, If There's a Hell Below by Black Milk, Broke with Expensive Taste by Azealia Banks, Rich Gang: the Tour by Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan, and Ferg Forever by A$AP Ferg

I've also heard good things about the new PRhyme album and Ghostface album, both of which are streaming on NPR's website, but I haven't listened to them yet.

>Pinata
>Cilvia Demo

I'd put NOTM up there too, also I wouldn't exactly call FlyLo (at least You're Dead!) hip hop.

Also Gambino's new project wasn't even as good as YG or Rick Ross

Thank you guys for making a clear and concise list for me
And thank you to everyone else that has contributed

I tried to like Pinata and Cilvia but I couldn't, and I'm not really into Vince Staples. but I'll give everything else a shot

>>51834766
It's been more than a year now and you guys still use "memecore" and "memerap"? I thought that'd be gone when I came back

>Hail Mary Mallon - Bestiary

I'm surprised at how little people have talked about that one
>>
>>51835109

It was kinda forgettable, especially for a record with Aesop Rock on it.
>>
>>51835109
that's because wordvomit-core =/= hip-hop

c'mon loc, everyone knows that
>>
>>51835236
You know, when people add creative lyricism to already good beats, it's generally seen as a good thing.

Or would you rather no hip-hop ever actually tried on that front?
>>
>>51834754
i liked this a lot and haven't seen anyone mention it in raoty discussions. not that it is the raoty, but it's still cool

Yea i was wondering why no ones mentioned busdriver
>>
>>51835486
not that anon, but i feel the same way

in the case of aesop rock, he uses cool words but rarely in a cool way. he's guilty of abusing the thesaurus and just doesn't get the musicality of words, favoring content over form. good instros on all the hail mary tho

>>51835534
way to call em out m8 keepin ppl honest on /mu/ is hard work :^)
>>
>>51835638
not the other anon, but I actually really like Aesop's take on lyricism. It's true that it can come off as forced at times, but when he nails it, the imagery he can come up with is really creative, and always gets me to smile.

I guess an example would be Grace. His lyricism really helps transform what would be an ordinary, everyday "eaiting veg" story into this battle of biblical proportions, and I can't help but smile at that. I don't think he's always trying to "just use big words" (though there are times when it sometimes looks like he's trying too hard) but rather trying to create an interesting new way to visualise the events being described.

"S-stop liking what I don't like!"
>>51835526
I don't think FlyLo is a hip-hop artist, but an album that he himself raps on and that features Kendrick and Snoop sounds kind of hip-hopish to me

New Wu Tang has a few good tracks that's it.
36 Seasons is good though.

>Blink Twice if you are being held hostage
>I speak and spell of a sleeper cell in the hospice

this couplet is pretty cool. maybe he's a better poet than i gave him credit for, but this song still sucks dick.

i think he's better as a storyteller. No Regrets is a life story with an unlikely protagonist that made me think about rap in a new way. i don't listen to it much but i still think of it highly
