Migos: No Label II

One hit wonder courtesy of the kid from Toronto? Nah, shawty. These young ATL MCs continue to impact our culture with innovative flows and party anthems like “Fight Night”. Who’s your favorite rap group? Recognize and realize that Offset, Quavo and Takeoff got now.

Slaughterhouse: House Rules

While we impatiently wait for their Just Blaze exec-produced second Shady LP, the four MCs (Budden, Royce, Crooked I, & Joell) remind us what true lyricism and rhyme wizardry is all about on hardcore bangers like “Say Dat Then”. The bars are great so keep the faith.—YN

Wiz Khalifa: 28 Grams

Proving us wrong with the first single from his upcoming Blacc Hollywood wasn’t enough, Wiz dropped a freebie with close to 30 tracks. Geesh. Not without some downs, “Comb Over” and the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Banger” ensure we don’t lose our high. Kudos, Khalifa.—YN

2 Chainz: Freebase

Tity Boi has accumulated a helluva catalogue of hits. So it was cool to see him return to his underground roots. This collection is strictly for the d boys and pardon Dos for flexin on his baby mama. Chainz is for the children.—YN

Lil Herb: Welcome To Fazoland

Like his occasional rhyme partner, Lil Bibby, Herb is a young Chitown MC whose deep voice sounds way beyond his years. But Welcome To Fazoland pleases the ears with soulful compositions like “Fight Or Flight”. Nicki knows. Dude from Chiraq is the real deal.—YN
