Favorite Albums of 2015

I know I essentially ended my last blog post with "coming next week/month, part 2 of my top 10 hip-hop albums of all-time" but I'm going to interrupt the flow with a brief list of my favorite albums of 2015. I promise that second part is coming. I have a draft for it sitting unpublished. Next time I'm on a plane, I'll probably finish it. Anyway, here's a list of albums you can use to judge me silently. Or not so, as the case may be.

Favorite Albums of 2015 (fuzzy ordering):

  1. To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar
  2. GO:OD AM by Mac Miller
  3. If You're Reading This Now, It's Too Late by Drake
  4. Summertime '06 by Vince Staples
  5. 90059 by Jay Rock
  6. Couch Potato by Bobby Raps & Corbin
  7. Compton by Dr. Dre
  8. But You Caint Use My Phone by Erykah Badu
  9. B4.DA.$$ by Joey Bada$$
  10. Fetty Wap by Fetty Wap
