According to Soundscan tracking numbers, there's 75,000 new music albums released every second. At least 15,000 of those are Hip Hop albums and mixtapes. Nobody has time to listen to all of it, there's just not enough hours in a minute. So, I'm gonna do you a favor, here's two Hip Hop albums from this year that, if you haven't heard 'em yet, it's about time you rectified that:

Telefone by Noname – Female artist from Chicago, her first mixtape, it's the happiest album about bummer happenings that you'll hear today. It sounds like looking out a window on a day that's almost too warm but is actually just right.

Malibu by Anderson .Paak – California dude, second proper album, it's full of big sounds like horns and drums that make you shake ya butt, and small sounds like subtle background vocals and funky bass lines that keep your head nodding. It's an album that's very inviting and too cool for words.

Also, maybe just listen to Panda by Desiigner over and over until you love it? Then maybe keep listening until you're completely sick of it? Then listen even more times until the word Panda loses all meaning? Then listen like five more times? Then you'll be where I'm at. That's where I'm at.
