Nice to see some love for Homeland! Show is great and nobody is talking about it.

Shouldn't have to 'defend' your right to love Take Care. It is the most consistent, beautiful, creative and fun hip-hop album of the year. (Nobody disagree, you know I am right)

4 Years is crazy good.

Can't wait to listen to Unexpected Victory.

Been a slow week for hip-hop news.

Oh, and in my humble opinion every album listed as an honorable mention was better than Finally Famous.
