My 2014 Favorites

Yup, I’m late again but still want to throw my two cents in. In my opinion, 2014 was a pretty great year for albums in both the hip-hop and R&B category. Last year, I was struggling to find five strong candidates. This year I could easily find 10 of each and could probably add another five. As far as standout singles though, there just weren’t that many this year, IMO. Albums FTW.
