I will be updating my post as time goes on, when new shit comes out or I remember any more projects to share. As far as artists I am hype for this year: Logic, MED/BLU/MADLIB, Kid Cudi (I actually liked Indicud and Satellite Flight, unlike most people it seems), CES CRU, DOOMSTARK, Kanye. i think i might like rap too much

A new CZARFACE album dropped earlier this year called Every Hero Needs a Villian.It has a similar to feel as something MF DOOM would do, but it has a more hard hitting and angry sound to it. I recommend this project to anyone who loves Wu-Tang and/or MF DOOM. Here are a few of my personal favorites off the album:

Czartacus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qcf7WudU5E
Red Alert https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VeYtlh3G2A
Sinister https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aXDR4ZGs4s

There was also the new Mick Jenkins project that dropped not too long ago called Waves. In my opinion it isn't as good as his last album Waters, but I still think it would be worth giving a listen to. Favorites off Waves:

Alchemy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPHLqk9pdSQ
Piano https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPHLqk9pdSQ

Denzel Curry also released a project early this year called 32 Zel/ Planet Shrooms. Its a really hard hitting album and it can be pretty aggressive at times. Just a few of the many good songs on here:

Ultimate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97fFYsMbVvE
Ice Age https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0C64XcDk7o0

Injury Reserve's Live from the Dentist Office was an interesting project. It sort of sounds like a new Odd Future to me. A few tracks that I liked from this project:

Yo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg6Z6slaJxs
Whatever Dude https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B82glsI3F8k
Washed Up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC6H5MaMvho

Lil Dicky is ass

New CZARFACE is fantastic, was my favorite album this year until Compton came out, crazy how Deck is still killing it over 20 years later.

jermangTrick Dice was really good. I miss Ugly's raps and everything he's produced has always been fucking incredible.

I have had this, mista thug isolation, and Lil ugly manes mixes on rotation all month. His production so addictive and unique. His piece he wrote about Trick Dice was also really nice as well.

Another guy you should look out for is Your Old Droog. He recently came out with an EP called The Nicest. His bars are some of the toughest I have heard this year. He's coming out with an album before the end of the year as well if you get into him.

Am I the only one who didn't really like Rodeo?? I mean the production was godly and everything, but I just can't get behind Travi$ Scott's style.. To me its just another autotune heavy rapper. Don't get me wrong, I can respect his talent in producing, but his lyrics are really just an immediate turnoff for me.

Tyler, The Creator's Cherry Bomb was kind of a mess, but there were actually some pretty good tracks on the album I thought, there were some songs on that album I'd like to forget about though, coughCHERRY BOMBcough, but some of the songs were pretty good:

THE BROWN STAINS OF DARKEESE LATIFAH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8SaaNqHCN4
BUFFALO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QlVtadoZCA
DEATHCAMP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk1HipdhdCU

Albeit I haven't listened to Cherry Bomb in a while, and I don't plan on giving it a listen anytime soon, I thought there were some notable tracks on here. This was probably one of the most highly anticipated albums early this year, which is the main reason I'm even sharing it in the first place. Not all of the albums I'm going to be mentioning are necessarily my FAVORITES either, they can be ones that I feel worth mentioning.

Can anyone recommend me an artist or two to listen too if i like more relaxed/chill beats and songs that tell a story? Concept albums are a huge plus as well. I like to listen to albums front to back, so no single song recs please.

little brother - the listening
common - be( a LOT of common albums i would really explore if you liked Be, one day it'll all make sense, resurrection, like water from chocolate...)
de la soul - stakes is high
a tribe called quest - midnight marauders(personally it's my favorite but low end theory is rly good as well)
gang starr - moment of truth
im gonna assume you have listened to illmatic and if you havent you should

newer artists for this style would be

joey bada$$ - 1999
kendrick lamar - honestly his whole album output minus his mixtapes
blu and exile - below the heavens
isaiah rashad - cilvia demo

not that many people do the chill/relaxed beat production well lately so i can recommend more if you really wanted some more recent stuff but a lot of older dudes did that style more justice
