10. Common: Nobody’s Smiling
Not your typical Common album, he uses a very serious attitude and a much darker approach than usual; the album is produced by NO I.D, who had previously worked on lots of singles but never on an entire album

9. The Roots: …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin
This is the follow-up to the concept album released last year, entitled “Undun”; not a bad sequel at all, it leaves you wanting more because of its short length, worth listening to

8. Flying Lotus: You’re Dead!
Fly Lo is always experimenting and trying to take it to another level; if you’re into TripHop, Experimental Hiphop and ambiant/electro music and all about new sounds, that’s your album

7. I Am Legion: I Am Legion
If you’re into Grime, heavy basslines and fast rhyming, this is one of those albums you should check out

6. Fashawn & The Alchemist: FASH-ionably Late
This is for Hip-Hop Heads; sick rhyming on top of beats by the one and only Alchemist, this is a must!

5. Jhene Aiko: Souled Out
A very soulful voice coming out of the new school, very smooth and chilled album; strictly for late nights!

4. Dilated Peoples: Directors Of Photography
Evidence, Rakaa and DJ Babu got back together after almost 7 years to hit us with a Bomb; whether you’re a fan or not, you gotta check this out

3. Mobb Deep: The Infamous Mobb Deep
Mobb Deep took us back to the 90’s with this album; if you grew up in the Golden era, this one is for you!

2. Step Brothers (The Alchemist & Evidence): Lord Steppington
This was album of the year for me as soon as it came out, until J-Cole’s album dropped; the long awaited collaboration between Hip-hop giants Evidence & Alchemist dropped early this year, and it was the only thing I was listening to for 3 months; this album is a must!

1. J-Cole: Forest Hills Drive
Best album you can get this year, from production to lyrical content; this album is J-Cole’s best work till now, hands down
