Kevin Montes’ Top 5 Mid-Year Albums
1. Chance the Rapper – Coloring Book
Chance comes back with another mixtape full of memorable tracks and new ways to flex the gospel rap genre, as well as maintaining that initial Chance charm we’ve come to love.
2. Weezer – Weezer (The White Album)
Weezer comes back with an album that has been packed for the summer. It’s like Weezer remembered where they originated from and send off the listener with lavish vibes like on the song “Do You Wanna Get High?”
3. YG – Still Brazy
YG comes back with a sophomore album that’s more socially conscious. Themes of sticking out based on race and the divide in culture, amongst others are underlined throughout the album in gangsta rap form, the way YG knows.
4. KAYTRANDA – 99.9%
KAYTRANADA is an up and coming electronic and hip-hop producer/artist from Canada that just blows it out of the park in his debut album. His sound is graceful and eclectic and each track comes with their own uniqueness in the instrumental, along with the features.
5. Lion Babe – Begin
Lion Babe knows how to make an appearance with a danceable album that has nothing but bangers throughout, even the melancholy ones. And throughout out it all it embraces the empowerment of females within, in a beautiful fashion where it entrances you.
