Sage Francis - Life Artist Sage Francis
Title Li(f)e
Label Anti
Li(f)e is a marked evolution for Sage Francis. The celebrated agent-provocateur of Hip-Hop brings his signature wordplay, a dazzling mix of sardonic humor and biting social commentary, to a setting complimented by a talented band consisting of Brian Decker (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine) and cohorts Jim Becker and Tim Rutili of the acclaimed Chicago outfit Califone. Sage is pushing the envelope of a genre he helped create, with a confrontational tongue and wit to match Shepard Fairy’s iconic album artwork.

SERENGETI – Family & Friends Artist SERENGETI
Title Family & Friends
Label Anticon
Serengeti’s first solo album for Anticon finds him upbeat, on point and full of swagger. The multifaceted Chicago emcee streamlines his approach for Family & Friends, taking a breather from the knotty, introspective raps of his recent past, and making one of the most enjoyable, clear-headed records of his career.

Shabazz Palaces - Quazarz vs The Jealous Machines Artist Shabazz Palaces
Title Quazraz vs The Jealous Machines
Label Sub Pop
"Quazarz Vs The Jealous Machines" is one of two new albums by interstellar hip hop enigma Shabazz Palaces - aka Ishmael Butler (who, in another galaxy, performs in Digable Planets) - and Tendai Maraire. "Quazarz Vs The Jealous Machines" and its simultaneously released companion "Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star" were both produced by Knife Knights (i.b e.b.) and mixed by Blood. 
Occupying the same interstellar recesses as Dean Blunt / Hype Williams, Earl Sweatshirt and, (tenuously) to perhaps Ratking; this is the true new school folks, abandoning hip-hop and rap’s tried traditions, ditching all that’s come before it for something completely new and invigorating, more in common with Burnt Friedman and Mark Ernestus than the ghosts of rap music’s past. Still gritty and streetwise, but unfathomably futuristic and wrapped in celestial space dust, the album works as a whole journey, beautifully sequenced and elegantly constructed. Essential music for the right now. Recommended.

Shabazz Palaces - Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star Artist Shabazz Palaces
Title Quazraz: Born On A Gangster Star
Label Sub Pop
Twinned with "Quazarz Vs The Jealous Machines", this companion album from Shabaz Palaces also shines and growns under the crushing weight of the future. Imbued with the energy and ideas from all the creative embers floating in the atmosphere like fireflies, Shabazz Palaces recorded this entire album over the course of two weeks with Blood in Seattle. New gear and new equipment disintegrated comfort zones into dust and a new path appeared in the rubble - aurally evident thoughout this painfully visionary album. "Born on a Gangster Star"  continues the intrepid and unfathomable quest through cosmic-rap, a genre that SP is practically inventing. The beats wobble and ricocheting as if unaffected by gravity, while Palaces’ vocals are hushed, ushered and delivered with a biting effeciently which has had me previously drawing comparisons to Dean Blunt / Hype Williams and Earl Sweatshirt. Appearing here, in body or in spirit, are Julian Casablancas, Thundercat, Darrius Willrich, Gamble and Huff, Loud Eyes Lou, Thaddillac, Ahmir, Jon Kirby, Sunny Levine, and Blood. This, my friends, is the sound of the near future.

Spoek Mathambo - Father Creeper Artist Spoek Mathambo
Title Father Creeper
Label Sub Pop
‘Father Creeper’ makes the Afro-futurists look old school. Rock moments swerve electronic. The crisp, changing rhythms of Mathambo’s live drummer go cyborg with drum machine beats. Guitar lines snake and ripple across the album, ranging from summery highlife melodies to amped-up rock riffs.    
Lyrically, ‘Father Creeper’ flips the concerns of mainstream rap by embracing a deep sensitivity for a traumatized society (where the f*cked- upedness is real, the optimism stubborn and the booty ripe).

Stormzy - Gang Signs & Prayer Artist Stormzy
Title Gang Signs & Prayer [Mercury Music Prize Nominee 2017]
Label Merky
Since releasing his debut EP, only two years ago, Stormzy has won two MOBOs, won Best International Artist at the BET Awards, performed on Jools Holland, become the first unsigned rapper to feature on the BBC Sound Of… list, sold almost a million records, and made history by sending two grime freestyles into the UK chart top 20 for the first time in history.
For many who only know Stormzy as the six foot MC who spits fire on YouTube, the debut album may come as something of a pleasant eye opener. He’s immersed himself fully in the craft of song writing and production, gleaned from those years of growing up on slow jams. Twelve tracks of grime this ain’t. The album features a host of collaborations including Raleigh Ritchie and grime cohorts Ghetts and J Hus.  The album also features a new version of his massive hit “Shut Up”.
