Top 5's of 2014 - Bete Smith

Next up on our Top 5's of 2014 we have another good pal Bete Smith. It's always exciting for me to get Bete's list as he mainly listens to Hip-Hop. I love this genre but am usually lost on what to try. Luckily Bete gives me a few picks throughout the year to help keep me in the loop on the genre. 

Here is Bete in his own words:

My picks for 2014 (with a few short comments) are below:

Top 5 (in no particular order)

Flying Lotus - You're Dead: Growth

D'Angelo - Black Messiah: Worth the wait

Diamond District - March on Washington / M.o.W. Redux: The best hip hop album of the year, followed by the year's best remix collection. Well done.

Budos Band - Burnt Offering: Sinister. In the groove.

The Bug - Angels and Devils: Badman.

(honourable mention)

Shabazz Palaces - Lese Majesty

Sturgill Simpson - Metamodern Sounds in Country Music

Taylor McFerrin - Early Riser
