Admittedly, there are only two true hip-hop albums on this countdown this year. That actually seems to be similar to how it’s been in years’ past as well.
#22 introduces Music’s Master readers to Danny Brown. Although it’s not a debut album, he received some critical acclaim with his latest album, Old.
I like Danny because he is more lyrical than most rappers out there. He also is a true musician himself. The fact that indie radio stations play his music like crazy is a true testament to his unique positioning in the music world.
You can buy the album here.
