- Pusha-T King Push – Darkest Before the Dawn: The Prelude
If Pusha-T’s upcoming album King Push is half as good as this pre-album project then 2016 is already looking great for Hip-Hop. Pusha has some great lines and there is a song that sounds straight out of Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. This is hard-hitting and beautiful music.
Favorite Track: “M.P.A.” feat. The-Dream, A$AP Rocky, Kanye West
2. Cage the Elephant – Tell Me I’m Pretty
I fell in love with Cage the Elephant’s last album, Melphonia, a whole two years after it was released. It was good rock n roll and deserved to be in the list of best albums of 2013. Springing forward to 2015 we get a much mellower project the rounds right out of the 1950s. Simple rock songs that are gentle and easy-going.
Favorite Track: “That’s Right”
