2014 was a very, very decent year for hip-hop. A lot of hotly anticipated albums, EPs, and LP’s dropped, and whilst some may have not lived up to the hype, it’s easily arguable that a bigger percentage did. Artists like RATKING, Isaiah Rashad, Vince Staples, and Freddie Gibbs & Madlib (Piñata is an absolute banger), released some serious records in ’14, and if you slept on any of them be sure to click the links. This is, however, the time for looking forward, and 2015 is now upon us; with that comes new music, new film and a whole lot more to look forward to. To start things off here’s our top 6 picks for hip hop albums that are set to drop this year. Keep an eye and an ear out for these ones and go out and get em when you can!
