2015 will forever go down as one of the best years in rap for a very long time. With a surplus of A-1 artists dropping, including the likes of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Future, A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, Pusha T, Wale, Big Sean, and more, it’s hard to really call 2015 a down year. While we’ve received a bevy of quality albums, there were some underwhelming projects that didn’t astound us.
Check out the Most Disappointing Albums of 2015
Kid Ink – Full Speed
Kid Ink’s ability to conjure up melodic bangers is vastly superior to a lot of his contemporaries. His issue isn’t making a smash. The biggest mishap on Full Speed was his decision to constantly play things safe. His lack of experimentation, lackluster rhymes, and bloated guest appearances, had us questioned Ink’s ability to do things on his own.
Chris Brown – Royalty
After watching Chris Brown attempt to make a full-fledged transformation from R&B bad boy to Father of the Year candidate, we had hope for a bit more vulnerability from him on his newest endeavor, Royalty. With what could have served as his personal opus a la Confessions, Brown’s miscues on the second half of Royalty landed this album in the back-end of our playlist.
