Music

Girl Talk & Freeway: Broken Ankles

Girl Talk & Freeway collaborate to bring you a fast-paced EP that is well worth its short run time.

Girl Talk Music

Music

Soulja Boy: King Soulja 3

Soulja Boy's latest offering is a fairly vanilla addition to the trap genre, with few highlights to make it a worthwhile listen.

SODMG

Music

SZA: Z

If RZA, GZA, and Smoke DZA weren’t enough for you, we’re now throwing SZA into the mix.

Music

The innovative hip-hop duo from Seattle is back with another genre bending album.

The latest album from How to Dress Well sounds similar to his previous work, but doesn't have enough to keep it interesting the third time around.

Pale Fire

Music

Asher Roth: RetroHash

Forget The Spaghetti Tree and Is This Too Orange?, Asher's second studio album shall be known as RetroHash and it really does exist!

Music

Aloe Blacc: Lift Your Spirit

Aptly titled, Lift Your Spirit is a collection of feel-good neo-soul hits with a pop-friendly vibe.

Music

Rick Ross: Mastermind

Album number six from Rick Ross doesn't stray too far from the sound of his previous work, but a high level of polish just might make this his best album yet.

Wicked Awesome / Republic

Music

Isaiah Rashad: Cilvia Demo

Isaiah Rashad's jump into the public eye solidifies him as one of the best up-and-coming rappers to watch out for. Smooth production and intricate lyricism make this one of the most enjoyable releases of the year so far.

Music

Step Brothers: Lord Steppington

This collaborative offering from Evidence and Alchemist brings some of the best beats of January, but lacks the substance to keep it in rotation for the rest of 2014.

Music

Clear Soul Forces: Gold PP7's

Clear Soul Forces put together a nostalgic and technically proficient album to establish themselves as one of the best up-and-coming rap groups around.

Music

Eminem: The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (take two)

Eminem's revisitation to his most accomplished album is a recipe for disaster that somehow turns into a pleasant surprise worthy of being called a sequel.

Music

Best Coast: Fade Away EP

Fade Away is a presentation of more of the same music that Best Coast has already made. Whether or not that's bad news to you depends on how big of a fan you really are.

Music

No Malice: Hear Ye Him

No Malice is a changed man. Don't expect this Christian Rap album to sound like a Clipse album.
