Kendrick Lamar - Hood Politics

Time to criticize me and tell me how wrong I am. Here's my list of my 25 favorite hip hop albums. Note the word "favorite" and not "best." I'm actually surprised myself on what I ended up leaving out and the order I listed some of them, but after messing around with it for a while and completely disregarding what the "general consensus" would be among multiple people, I think this is the most honest list I could make.
1. Nas - Illmatic
2. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly (Yes, I'm 100% aware that this album isn't even nine months old yet. **** you, it's my opinion.)
3. Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
4. GZA/Genius - Liquid Swords
5. OutKast - ATLiens
6. Mobb Deep - Hell On Earth
7. UGK - Ridin' Dirty
8. 2Pac - Me Against the World
9. Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury
10. Talib Kweli - Quality
11. Ice Cube - Death Certificate
12. OutKast - Aquemini
13. Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
14. Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city
15. Tha Dogg Pound - Dogg Food
16. Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
17. Eric B & Rakim - Don't Sweat the Technique
18. Redman - Muddy Waters
19. OutKast - Stankonia
20. Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt
21. Xzibit - 40 Days & 40 Nightz
22. Dr. Dre - The Chronic
23. The Roots - Phrenology
24. Ghostface Killah - Ironman
25. Kanye West - Yeezus

^ I narrowed my 25 down from a larger list. 11 of the albums on your list that didn't make my top 25 were on that list.

Taeyeon - I

This song describes my life so much right now.

IU - Zeze

This song is based on a Brazilian children's novel, and out of context the lyrics sound kind of... pedobearish. That doesn't mean it isn't incredibly **** tight though.

RLC - Get 'Em Outta There (Drill)

While I'm not intimately familiar with drill music, this might be my favorite drill song.

Pusha T - Crutches, Crosses, Caskets

Somebody ghost-produced this beat for Puffy, right? There's no way he's making fire beats like this still in 2015.

^ According to Pusha T in his interview with Noisey, it seems like Puff produced it himself.

Girls' Generation - Bump It

Even as a die hard Girls' Generation fan, I was preparing for the group to come to disband by the time "Party" came out in July, considering all of the rough times from the prior year and a half... then, a month later, they released Lion Heart, easily one of the best albums of their extremely prolific discography, quite possibly their best since 2010's Oh/Run Devil Run even. While it hasn't been the most commercially successful album of their career (in spite of the title track's big success as a single), the creative rejuvenation makes me really hope that they have a few more years left.
