Thats it for me. As i always ask, what were YOUR albums of the year??
  Right on! I've been hoping you'd continue this tradition, Any chance of you adding a genre to the non Hip hop albums if it wouldn't take too long.  Just to get an idea of what their music is like(maybe a song to check out if you did this next year)  Would love to check out some of them but not sure where to start

  Anyway I figured this year I'd list a couple of non Hip Hop albums that I listened to heavily over the second half of the year

Alessia Cara - Know-it-all (Pop/R&B)Hint of Hip-Hop

Twenty-One Pilots - Blurryface (Electropop, Alternative Hip-Hop,indie pop) Hardest group for me to put into a genre

Chvrches - Every Open Eye (Electronic Pop, Synthpop, indietronica)



I didn't pick that many albums that came out in 2015. My favourites that come to mind are C-Bo's 'The Mobfather 2' and Dre's 'Compton'.

I forgot 'The Ecology' by Fashawn. Another great 2015 album.

Edit: When Music Worlds Collide is in my top albums of 2015 too.
