This thread sometimes... SMH at some of you longing for "prime" Wiz Khalifa like he was ever nice or much different than he is now. ANd the obligatory Eazy E/NWA or Biggie or 2Pac posts every few pages.
This last 6 or 7 months had a lot of good hip hop albums/mixtapes drop, I can't complain at all. My favorites of the year in no order:
Big KRIT- 4 Eva N A Day
Freddie Gibbs- BFK
Prodigy- Put the good tracks off his 3 projects from 2012 together and you have a good album
Currensy- Stoned Immaculate and Priest Andretti
Killer Mike- Rap Music
Roc Marciano- Reloaded- This is crack, some of the best MCing i've heard in a while as far as just bars for the sake of bars.
Ross- Put the good tracks off his 3 projects together and you have a great/maybe classic album, he was just a little overexposed
Sean Price- Mic Tyson
Off one listen TI's album was much better than I expected, his best project to me in a while. I like that he switched up the production on this from the sound of his last few. Big Boi and Game sounded good from what I heard from their albums.
LB, what'd you think of Reloaded? It's a different type of album from his first to me, the production doesn't bang like some of those tracks did, but lyrically it's even better imo. Wee Ill especially. I've had it on repeat.
