If you missed it yesterday, check out my 12 most perfect songs of 2015. Again, I hate these lists but had to spotlight the 12 albums that stood out to me over the past 12 months…


Ballin’ Like I’m Kobe’ – G Herbo
“The one I waited months for, and noticed when the August release date came and went with no BLIK.”


Cherry Bomb’ – Tyler, the Creator
“My favourite Tyler album of them all, I felt it was overall more cohesive, plus it had vocals from Kali <3"


DS2’ – Future
“The most relevant album for me this summer, I was in an ignorant place and DS2 made me feel like that was ok.”


Ego Death’ – The Internet
“Romantic soothing vibes from one of the best bands in the world, the bass riff on ‘Special Affair’ gets me every time.”


Free Crack 3’ – Lil Bibby
“I feel like Bibby grew up a lot between ‘FC2’ and ‘FC3’, the soul loops are everything. ‘Killing Me’ is perfect.”


I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt’ – Earl Sweatshirt
“I was in a really dark place when this came out and Earl made me feel like that was fine. I learnt not to take betrayal seriously and I’m glad he dropped ‘IDLSIDGO’ in the year of the snake.”


Integrity’ – JME
“The best album to come out of the UK scene this year. JME is a legend and never compromises his sound, which is rare.”


Late Nights: The Album’ – Jeremih
“The King of RnB, it took a full year for him to get the album out but he had me at ‘Planes’ and ‘Late Nights’ was even better than I expected it to be.”


Por Vida’ – Kali Uchis
“Baby girl is still my favourite singer. ‘Por Vida’ saw lots more people catch on to the amazingness that is Kali Uchis in 2015.”


Summertime’06’ – Vince Staples
“A very important and relevant album. Should have got Vince a Grammy nomination.”


Surf‘ – Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment
“As the first album available for free download on iTunes, ‘Surf’ is a record breaker and shows what a special, dynamic artist Chance the Rapper is.”


To Pimp A Butterfly’ – Kendrick Lamar
“If ‘Good Kid, m.A.A.d City’ was for Compton, ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ was for the world. This album put Kendrick one step closer to being the Marvin Gaye of my generation.”
