Update: “Richard” is the winner as his submission pointed out something which almost got forgotten after the Weinstein effect. Revelatory, naked and truthful hip hop albums – Everything from coming out as gay (right?) to being raw and intimate, or as Richard puts it “emotional super ultra album”.
Congratulations Richard, and thanks to everyone who contributed. I recommend you to scroll through the three pages below. There are some real gems, and all of them feel very genuine and hopeful in a year which has been rough overall.
“All the gay rap this year was my moment. This was the year of homoerotic rap music. Nobody tell me different (just f*cking Saturation era, bitch an tylers f*cking sc*m f*ck emotion f*cker boy)
But in general the fact that so many rappers dropped their most mellow sounding but on the other side most intimate and emotional super ultra album. All the time this year. All this magical gay sounding hip hop music this year made my year. For sure”
Personally I had a lot of fun when we both leaked Gorillaz and Taylor Swift’s track lists which resulted in bizarre PR for the site and Swift fans going absolute mad. Or the surreal moment seeing your own music getting leak reported. Or the hilarious, seemingly eternal feud between Liam and Noel. Maybe even discovering I kind of like Kesha’s music.
There’s been a lot of horrible moments of loss and revelations this year. Let’s end this year with something positive. What’s your favorite moment in music this year? An album release, a surprise, a reveal or maybe even a WTF moment as a gif.
Name you favorite moment below. One of you will win an album of your choice, vinyl or digital copy. You need to be signed in in order for me to contact the winner. Contest ends on December 15th!
