I think this is going to be a non hip-hop year, to be completely honest.
That Vince thing (which might actually just be a single?), another Danny Brown collabo with Paul White, and whatever the fucking fuck "More Life" is going to be, plus Yeezy Season 5 coming with no new music announcements, all point to this being an off-year for actual albums.
So far we have Run the Jewels and Migos. yaaaaaaaaay.
I think this is going to be an indie-rock bounceback year with lots of good electronic and experimental music to dig through.
So maybe we should talk about "old" hip-hip, just so this thread doesn't suffer. To this end, I've decided to read the 33⅓ entry on MBDTF — which should be here any day — for inspiration.
