Cali rapper Hopsin has a tight flow and rhymes that don’t mince words. While I like the more hard-hitting tracks on this new LP of his, there just aren’t enough of them to balance out the sickening melodrama that happens on a great deal of this new LP’s songs.
Southern rap titans Three Six Mafia are back under a different name–and with a slight lineup change–but that hasn’t stopped them from pulling together one of the rawest, grimiest mixtapes to drop this year.
The new Sadsic album is one of the heartiest collections of beats that you’ll come across this year, featuring over an hour’s worth of psychedelic, kick-heavy odds ‘n’ ends.
The new Moonface record not only features a simple display of Spencer Krug’s vocals against his incredibly refined piano playing, but it’s also the Canadian singer-songwriter’s most personal record yet.

Sorry I haven’t mentioned this yet, but an occasion such as this can’t be talked about too many times, honestly.
Three 6 Mafia is back, but they’re now working under a different name and making music sans a few original members. I’ll let Koopsta explain:
Like Koop said, Juicy J isn’t in the mix on this new mixtape, and I don’t think Gangsta Blac and La’ Chat are on any of these cuts either. However, despite all of that–and a name change–the group has managed to bring back their classic sound without sparing us on their typically grimy, eerie edge.

On M.I.A.’s latest record, the UK-based rapper, singer, and producer takes a small step away from the noisy production that made her last record so bombastic, but still manages to deliver a series of smart, infectious, and wild banger-style party tracks.
Daniel Avery assembles a diverse album of well-crafted tech house tracks that’s solid from start to finish.
