(31) Days of Good//12.8.14

sisyphus_cover

If I told you Sufjan Stevens was attached to one of the best hip hop(ish) records of 2014, you might call me crazy. But combine Sufjan with Son Lux and Serengeti, and not only is the self-titled debut one of the best hip hop(ish) records of 2014, it’s easily one of my favorite overall records of the year.

♩ Sisyphus – Rhythm of Devotion [from Sisyphus]

run the jewels - run the jewels 2

Easily the best hip hop of 2014. Killer Mike said it best – “It is the best rap group album since RTJ1.”

♩ Run the Jewels – Blockbuster Night Part 1 [from RTJ2]

How do you make my favorite guilty pleasure track of 2014 better? Add Kendrick.

♩ The Hood Internet – Backseat Shake Off (Kendrick Lamar x Taylor Swift) [single]

Flying Lotus - You're Dead!

Not that Flying Lotus really needs Kendrick’s assistance when it comes to producing such cool and creative tunes, but it sure doesn’t hurt. And when you’re done here, be sure to check out the track’s music video.

♩ Flying Lotus – Never Catch Me (feat. Kendrick Lamar) [from You’re Dead!]
