Year End 2014

It's time for our final retrospective look at 2014 – this time we're covering all the stuff we missed from last year, whether it's the best hip-hop records, weird album artworks, press onesheet mis-steps, reissues records or new discoveries at Fest. Read on to find out what things passed under your radar in 2014 and see if there's anything you can add to our lists. The Best Hip-Hop Records of 2014 Its unlikely that there's another year-end rap list like this one, as outside of a few guilty pleasures I have little interest in the popular, hook-driven, thinned-out drivel that passes as "hip-hop" these days.

Year End 2014
