Beneath the radar.

2016 has been a great year for music. Chance the Rapper showed us that you don’t need a record label backing you to make it big with Coloring Book. Kanye West blew our minds with The Life of Pablo. Drake did fans justice with the greatness that is Views. D.R.A.M.’s debut album, Big Baby D.R.A.M., stamped him as an artist on the watch. Recently, J. Cole dropped the ultimate heat with 4 Your Eyez Only. I can go on and on but you get the picture. With all these great albums from these super great artists, that’s not all that hip-hop had to offer.
