Hollywood Handbook

Not music or an album but what I spent most of 2015 listening too

A$AP Rocky – At.Long.Last.A$AP

Many might not agree with me on this but for me it’s personal. I love this album pretty much top to bottom and I love Pretty Flacko.

Drake and Future – What A Time To Be Alive aka #WATTBA

The album (mixtape) that made diamond emojis a technical measure of success.

Drake – ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’

Full review here

D.R.A.M. – #1EpicEP

Even though he has beef with my boy this EP gave hope to the underground.

Young Thug- Barter 6

The fact that it was originally titled “Carter 6” exemplifies why Young Thug is a genius and ahead of our time.

Future – DS2

Did you read about the couple that themed their wedding off this album? Future is The Low-Key King of 2015 Hip Hop. He also killed the style game this year.

Diplo – (Major Lazer) Peace is the Mission/Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü- Sixty % of the songs included on these albums are too ravey for my liking but the last 40% soothe my inner sing-a-long-in-the-club-(or the car)-girl soul. Favorite co-signs are from Kai, Wild Belle, MO, and obviously Bieber

Fetty Wap – Fetty Wap

THIS GUYS IS A HIT MACHINE. EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES IS FIRE.

Rae Sremmurd – Sremm Life

Even though the lyrical content really reflects their age and no one knows how to pronounce their name, these young guns are full of energy with notable live performances. All of their releases of this album have been undeniably MASSIVE hits and they recently proved themselves to with this 20 minute live freestyle.

Odezsa – In Return

Because you can’t listen to hip hop all of the time.

NOTABLE MENTIONS:

Jidhenna – “Classic Man”; Schoolboy Q on Snapchat; and Hollywood Handbook (which occupied most of my listening hours of 2015).
