The Best Hip Hop Albums of March 2020
Pray For Paris – Westside Gunn
Much of the Westside Gunn story has already been written in stone. He’s established a dedicated following as the founder of Griselda Records and introduced the world to multiple talents such as Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher. Yet WSG took his biggest step toward a wider audience with Pray For Paris, releasing the most accessible album of his career — even more than the Griselda crew’s Shady Records debut WWCD. While he certainly hasn’t abandoned what’s worked so far, Pray For Paris expands WSG’s scope by getting contributions from the likes of Tyler, The Creator and Wale. The LP is the ideal entry point for listeners who haven’t jumped on the Griselda bandwagon but doesn’t compromise the foundation of what WSG has built.That makes it a great listen for newcomers and dedicated listeners alike, which is exactly what Westside needs to expand his influence in music industry.
All My Heroes Are Dead – R.A. The Rugged Man
R.A. The Rugged Man once again takes no prisoners on his latest solo affair. Armed with an arsenal of brutal bars and notable guests such as Ghostface Killah, Ice-T, Masta Killa and Chuck D, he proudly carries the torch for Golden Era Hip Hop throughout the 22-track project.
