Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon by Pop Smoke
This album was released only a few months after his tragic death. At the age of twenty, he really left a special mark on hip-hop. And, sadly, we will not have the opportunity to hear more news from him. With songs like “For The Night,” “Yea Yea” and “The Woo” becoming fan favorites, the album made Pop Smoke one of the best New York rappers.
Run The Jewels by RTJ4
When this album was released, on June 3, the album’s timely message accompanied protesters taking to the streets and demanding justice following the police killing of George Floyd. This album resonated, coming to the top-10 entry on the Billboard 200. Fans went crazy for this album, and how could they not go crazy? This is a masterpiece.
Savage Mode II by 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’
Over the years, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s have been important to each other’s careers. They joined forces and combined their talents in this album. Hit play on “Many Men” and “Runnin” for two of the best tracks on the album. Every bit sounds perfect and fresh, and this album certainly brought something very beautiful to that 2020, when the whole world was falling apart.
Circles by Mac Miller
When, unfortunately, he suddenly passed away in September 2018, he left behind an incredible treasure in the form of his art and songs. His family, together with producer Jon Brion, packed it all into the album “Circles”. Although this album shows and reflects the battles that Miller fought with himself, this album still provides support that may help someone.
