So… uhh… I never posted these lists. I had grand illusions of actually completing blurbs for all of them, but as time passed and they became less and less relevant it started to feel a little superfluous. After all, a week is a year on the internet, etc. But back in real life these are all still good albums that deserved to get their due here and elsewhere. In consideration of that, listen below and go buy some. Albums next.
5. Kingdom –That Mystic
4. Freddie Gibbs – Str8 Killa
3. Flying Lotus – Pattern+Grid World
