So as 2015 draws to a close, I'm gonna share with you my #HiphopAlbumOfTheYear.
Don't even ask me about other genres cos I don't have a clue! This is my call from the corner of #Hiphop I'm up on.
In general, I think 2015 has been one of the greatest years for #Hiphop. I can't remember the last time anyone real released an album like Kendrick Lamar's and it legit blew up the mainstream. Regardless of whether you like his album, if you listen to it, you can hear it's real and I respect that.
Big shout out to NIKO IS too, signed to Javotti Media (Talib Kweli's label) he's the perfect blend of braggadocio with the depth to back it up, a silky flow with solid lines, definitely my favourite new American rapper.

My newcomer shout out in UK Hiphop goes out to Ocean "Spitz" Wisdom! The man is fire, go check him out if you ain't heard.

So my pick for Hiphop album of the year goes to
Mr Key and Greenwood Sharps - Yesterday's Futures
This album has everything for me, cutting edge production, painfully great lyricism and more depth than a Russian sinkhole. Fuck the write up, just listen to it.

Happy new year to you all and watch out for my new release coming in January, it's already rumbling dancefloors! Any DJs want some outrageous Trap get at me.
