Black Milk
Waiting for the big strike
Doubtless, Black Milk could have chosen a more modest title than Album of the Year for his new album. So what? Black Milk himself describes his new record as »the most honest work« he has done so far. And looking back at his career, another development seems likely; without losing any of his independence, he manages to range between underground and commercialism. The pronouncement within the album title might just turn out to be true.

Pusha T
My Name Is My Name
You’ll find K.Dot doing high-noon-flexing, sour and impertinent real-talks, and Pusha twice teaming up with the Neptunes. And still it’s no revelation.

Roc Marciano

Those in search for an authentic, gimmick-less rap-sound from 2012, will definitely be happy with Roc Marciano. Maybe even happier than with his great debut.

The Alchemist

Gangrene
Vodka & Ayahuasca
On Vodka & Ayahuasca, The Alchemist and Oh No have brewed acoustic hallucinogens into the form of a LP, which yet again sounds wonderfully ignorant, dirty and spewed out.
