Arguably one of the most impactful albums of the past five years, GKMC shuns trite 808 thumpers for sophisticated production and sharp, eye-level storytelling.
The Roc Nation MC brilliantly produced and rhymed his way around the dreaded sophomore jinx, which is quite a nomination-worthy accomplishment when you consider this album’s incredible success.
Hov rolled the dice on the rollout of this album with the early all-digital release. In the end, he won big thanks to refined, genre-elevating content. What did you expect?
Nas unloading his post-divorce feelings over air-tight beats was just what his faithful fans were clamoring for.
The MMG rapper delivered a star-packed album that read like a VIP list at the Grammys – Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross – and the gifted spitter still stood out as the star of it all.
