Top 11 Hip-Hop Albums, March 2012

by Mosi Reeves  |  March 21, 2012

This roundup of the latest rap releases collects various hip-hop cultural memes. There's radio-ready pop-rap (via Chiddy Bang, K'naan, and Kid Cudi's side project WZRD); lo-fi, Southern-influenced swag (Odd Future); actual Southern rap (Yo Gotti); major-label-funded, teen-baiting mall-rap (Tyga and Diggy); exotic international rap (Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux); and unclassifiable alternative pop in which rap is a key element (South African vocalist Spoek Mathambo). In short, it's a grab bag that requires an expansive view of the genre's possibilities to enjoy it all.
