G.O.O.D. Music, TBA 

This album doesn't need a release date or a title to top this list. With "Mercy," "Way Too Cold," and the "I Don't Like (Remix)," Kanye and crew have already delivered three of the most buzzed-about songs of the year, and they exceeded the hype each time. With an all-star lineup that includes Big Sean, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, John Legend, Common, Q-Tip and guests like 2 Chainz and Jadakiss, this album may seem unwieldy, overwrought and over-the-top at first glance, but that's what Kanye, pop music's foremost maximalist, does best.
