Comment:  Seven out of ten of these albums are rap (not even hip hop), and all seven are good or better. This feels more and more like a golden age of rap, which is managing something exceedingly difficult: it is a pop form that is intermingingly with serious artistic skills. Watching several new rap stars over a long weekend, it is clear that on stage rappers play to the hits while on stage they play with the multi tracks to build unique soundscapes over unique beats. Meanwhile, Shawn was so good at Gov Ball I’ll have to reconsider the album.
