Hopefully you can survive one afternoon without me posting the newest hotness, because today we’re looking back at the best albums of 2014 so far.
Rick Ross – Mastermind
Ross the Bawse recruited Kanye, Big Sean, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, and French Montana to hop on tracks, and they all turned out to be straight fucking fire. HUGH.
Skrillex – Recess
Skrill hadn’t dropped any newnew in a while, but when you’re the Bass King your music is worth the wait.
Schoolboy Q – Oxymoron
My favorite album of the year so far. ”Gangsta” and “Yay Yay” are the only rap songs I ever wanna listen to again.
Major Lazer – Apocalypse Soon
Honestly not my cup of tea, but people love the Lazer and I’m a man of the people so here you go.
Stream Apocalypse Soon
With new tracks from Zedd, Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala, Ellie Goulding, Banks, A$AP Rocky, Chance The Rapper, and a bunch more studs, seems like they had a decent music budget for this flick.
Stream Divergent Soundtrack
Foster The People – Supermodel
Alt rock giants Foster The People rise from the dead after a dog’s age away from the spotlight with their sophomore effort Supermodel.
Aer – Aer
I really hadn’t heard much Aer before this album, but these dudes are 4/20 gold and “Spades” is one of the best songs of the year so far.
Young Money – Rise Of An Empire
It was no We Are Young Money, but with “Trophies,” “Moment,” and a few more gems sprinkled in, can’t hate too hard.
Stream Rise of an Empire
And the last two spots go to nobody, because nobody earned it. Can’t say the kid doesn’t have standards.
