Eh. I feel like I must be the only person who thinks it's been a weak year for hip hop. Good Kid, M.a.a.d. City is only getting as much praise as it is because it looks good by comparison with how bad a year it has been in the genre.
Joey badass, action bronson, capital steez, meek mill, rick ross, 2 chainz, riff raff blowin up
All pretty good things for hip hop this year
