Instead of saying that 2014 was a bad year for hip-hop, maybe we should blame our short-term memory instead. This past year, we’ve witnessed new stars emerge, veterans cementing more accomplishments to their legacies, new sonic landscapes get introduced to hip-hop, and much more. Here at Hip Hop My Way, we want YOUR help in shaping our best of end of year lists. Let your voice be heard by voting for your favorite remix, feature verse, producer, MC, femcee, and album of the year in our end of 2014 series. Since big name rappers didn’t drop an album in 2014, this year gave independent and up and coming artists the spotlight.
Stream the albums below and make sure you cast your vote for the best hip-hop album of 2014!
