My 3 favorite Hip-Hop Albums of 2012 so far

 Control System by: AB-Soul

AB-Soul, in my opinion, definitely made a lane for himself and seperated himself from the Black Hippy moniker with this project. The hip-hop group Black Hippy consists of AB-Soul, SchoolBoy QJay Rock, and Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick Lamar is the most popular member of the group but AB-Soul is coming for his neck!

My favorites songs on this project are: “Terrorists Threats” featuring Danny Brown & Jhene Aiko, “Double Standards“, “Illuminate” featuring Kendrick Lamar, “The Book of Soul“,  and “Black Lip Bastard Remix” featuring Black Hippy

People Hear What They See by: Oddisee

Oddisee is a very talented MC/producer and has a crazy work ethic. In the span of 7 years Oddisee has released 16 projects but none are as good as People Hear What They See.

My favorite songs on this project are: “Ready To Rock“, “Do It All“, “That Real“, “Another’s Grind“, and “You Know Who You Are

 R.A.P. Music by: Killer Mike

Killer Mike orchestrated something that hip-hop has been missing for a long time with this project. This project reminds me of old Public Enemy and Ice Cube albums; political rap. This album is filled with strong and controversial topics. What Killer Mike is talking about stimulates your mind but it is enjoyable to listen to. The production my MC/producer El-P along with Killer Mike’s lyricism is a perfect marriage.

My favorite songs on this projects are:  “Big Beast” featuring T.I.Bun B, & Trouble, “Untitled” featuring Scar, “Reagan“, “Don’t Die“, “Butane (Champion’s Anthem)” featuring El-P, and “R.A.P. Music
