Frank Ocean - nostalgia, ULTRA.
Just a good example of contemporary R&B. It's one of my favorites and it's worth a listen if you're a fan of the genre.
Favorite tracks: "Novacane", "Songs for Women", and "Swim Good"
Black Milk - Album of the Year
Don't let the braggadocious title fool you. This is more or less producer/MC Black Milk triumphantly looking back on the year leading up the release of this album, which he says on the album was the hardest year of his life. I loved the production and Black Milk holds his own as an MC.
Favorite tracks: "365", "Keep Going", "Deadly Medley" feat. Royce Da 5'9" and Elzhi, "Black & Brown" feat. Danny Brown, and "Closed Chapter"
