    Not as strong as 2015, nor the last 3 but still a big year, despite a few big disappointments (Views). Lots of change, lots of new names, lots of new sounds and styles.









    ...Not to mention the greatest XXL cypher of all time



    not as much in the way of groundbreaking albums, but still plenty to go round

    Frank Ocean - Blonde
    YG - Still Brazy
    Chance the Rapper - Coloring Book
    Anderson .Paak - Malibu
    Kanye West - The Life of Pablo
    Lil Yachty - Lil Boat
    Skepta - Konnichiwa
    Gucci Mane - Everybody Looking
    Danny Brown - Atrocity Exhibition
    Schoolboy Q - Blank Face
    Young Thug - Jeffrey
    A Tribe Called Quest - We Got It From Here... Thank You 4 Your Service
    Mach Hommy - HBO
    21 Savage - Savage Mode

    What else you got?

    U mention Views as a dissappointment (fair enough) but leaving out this GOAT song must have been an accident :)

    This song IS summer :sweatt:. Views had its fair share of hard s---. Cut it down to about half of its tracklist and you've got a solid album lol

    pheww. Although I will always consider this a Thug song

    Oddisee's first album


    then the rest of his catalog onward later, after his first album though I'd listen to the MMG compilation albums to get familiar with some of the artists





    Next, any Quelle Chris album is a major treat, I'd start with these 2 though and go onward.





    Next, you can start with any Apollo Brown album and L'Orange after all of this, the label has a really deep catalog now.

    Enjoy!,

    @Asmodeus shot for the suggestions man, I'm gonna start with Oddissee, I've heard only good things.

    Heard Quelle Chris' latest album, really enjoyed it but definitley need to go back and check out his previous stuff.
