2014 was a HORRIBLE year for Hip-Hop/Rap music. No major releases besides J-Cole, Nicki Minaj and a few more rappers. Though music was released, with a few exceptions, everything was trash. Great singles were released but no great albums. This had me thinking is niggas just going to release singles for now on? And then 2015 rolls around and we ALREADY have two GREAT mixtapes out now. One by Lil Wayne/Lil Tunechi and one by Future. They definitely jump started the year with those two releases. It seems as if Lil Wayne has harnessed his inner Drought Wayne and is back on his beat jacking, ripping everything in sight shit. After hearing Sorry for the Wait 2 I can't WAIT to hear Lil Wayne's Carter 5. Future also dropped a hot mixtape in collaboration with one of my favorite producers Zaytoven. I've never been a fan of Future but with beats from Zaytoven I may have to start making exceptions. The beat on Peacoat is SOOOO FUCKING VICIOUS it's ridiculous. I'm excited to see what 2015 has to hold for the Hip-Hop community.
Here are my favorite tracks from the two mixtapes.
Lil Wayne - Hot Nigga
Future - Peacoat
