61 Hydra 3D - Dat Adam Hydra 3D - Dat Adam

An astonishing debut by a very unique German group.

Mixing hip hop with experimental electronica sounds (it's NOT cloud rap as some critics call it), Taddl, Ardy and Marley aka that Adam deliver serious sociocritical content in a sometimes very artful and bizarre way that is even more experimental than Kanye West.

74 Awaken, My Love! - Childish Gambino Awaken, My Love! - Childish Gambino

This is a great album in my opinion. Yes, he is not rapping anymore, which disappointed me at first. Yes, his new music is a bit different than what it used to be, which was hard to get used to.
