Ooh yeah. Gonna go for sure. Although I'm not sure it'll top the GZA gig I saw with Pharaoe Monch opening. He signed my shoe.

Since we've got a thread going for overall lists, I'll post my hip hop list right here. #1 is obvious, but there were so many other great projects that went relatively under the radar. If you guys have questions about any of these or want a track pick from them, let me know:

1. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
2. Lupe Fiasco - Tetsuo & Youth
3. Milo - So the Flies Don't Come
4. L'Orange & Jeremiah Jae - The Night Took Us in Like Family
5. Lil Ugly Mane - Oblivion Access
6. Earl Sweatshirt - I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside
7. Czarface - Every Hero Needs a Villain
8. BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah - Sour Soul
9. Vince Staples - Summertime 06
10. Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Surf

Thanks for posting this. That Milo album is something I have seen mentioned in a few places; I will give it a try. I enjoyed Earl's album and loved the Staples album.

I'm starting to think I appreciate Kendrick's work more than I enjoy it. In terms of hip-hop I definitely gravitate toward the nihilistic stuff rather than the affirmational/inspirational.

Absolutely, 100% listen to Lil Ugly Mane's album then. It's free on his bandcamp and is nasty, misanthropic industrial hip hop with just a few gorgeous streaks of humanity to make it go down easier:

https://liluglymane.bandcamp.com/album/oblivion-access

Horrible pen name aside (he's about to retire it), he is one of the most creative men in hip hop today. His compilation album Third Side of Tape (also released this year) runs the gamut across rap, ambient, punk, heavy metal and more and all of it is done skillfully while tying it into a coherent set of lyrical themes.

The Best Rapper Alive, Every Year Since 1979 | Complex CA

So much potential, a strong start, and then drops off a cliff around 99/00. Cool illustrations, though.

Only a couple of honourable mentions for Three Stacks and NONE pre-Stankonia? And Drake over Kendrick for 2015?! Hahahahahahaha fuck outta here.

Great read though, thanks for posting.

They had Nicki Minaj as the best rapper of 2014. It's a popularity contest.

Drake was a bunch of memes in 2015. Over TPAB? It really seems like it got too hard or too long for the writer after Biggie got shot because it gets real lazy and often absurd from that point. Jeezy and Lil Wayne (twice)

Up till then though I think it's pretty on point. At least I listened to a shitload of old school tracks I hadn't heard in forever.

Man, DJ Shadow's "Endtroducing" is so good. Yeah, it's like mostly instrumental. But still.

I've been trying to seek out the most acclaimed hip-hop of the last decade or so. Two names I kept running into on various lists were Isaiah Rashad and Shabazz Palaces. Gave the latter's Black Up a listen today and really dug it: adventurous, liquefied grooves with some unconventional, almost mystical subject matter (sample song title: "An Echo from the Hosts Who Process Infinitum").

Going to look into Rashad later this week, I hope.
