The Year In Review: Okayplayer's 15 Most Slept-On Albums Of 2015
Say goodbye to 2015, Okayplayers! The year was full of some of the best rap releases the world has seen to date, yet, as with most projects, some things were passed over or missed completely. So much new music came out on a daily pace that it was assumed that a healthy inkling of that would fall through the cracks. As the music has enabled the game’s best and brightest MC’s to expand and express themselves — there were some pretty amazing records that came out this year.
The entirety of 12 months of hip-hop, from the beefs (“Back To Back”) to the artistic endeavors (To Pimp a Butterfly), endeared the culture to mainstream society and made rap highly profitable and sharable. Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” was omnipresent and had been remixed by everyone and their mama inside and outside of hip-hop, while Kendrick Lamar‘s “Alright” proved to be a rallying cry against the injustices of police sanctioned murder.
Throughout it all, there were some favorites that fell beneath the spotlight and were criminally slept-on by the public. So far, we’ve already released our list of the top albums, top songs, top music videos and most disappointing albums of 2015, yet that hasn’t stopped us from spotlighting the albums that were the most slept-on in 2015. A lot of the acts here released solid efforts that would stand out any day of the year, so, without further ado, allow us to introduce to you, Okayplayer’s 15 Most Slept-On Albums of 2015.
