Review this month’s albums and artists to check out.

Among all the albums and artists out there, it’s hard to find one that you like.

You gotta sit there and listen to what you like and what you wasted your time on.

Recommendations are always good because the work has been done for you.

If you’re looking for hip-hop albums and artists, you’ve come to the right place. B.o.B., Chevy Woods, and K Camp are just some of the artists on the list to check out. There are many options to choose from and at least one of these artists are sure to suffice. Find out who you like, and who you don’t like so that you’re prepared for future tracks.

Check out the hip-hop picks of September.

Travi$ Scott may not have your respect, but at the moment he’s at least got your attention. Calling the Kanye West mentee a divisive figure in hip hop amounts to a mountainous understatement in our molehill times. To some he’s a shapeshifter and a thief, j’accuse-d of cravenly cobbling together a sham career out of purloined proprietary styles belonging to others in hip hop, be that Kid Cudi or Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee or whoever happens to be on point at a given moment. Despite Scott’s important contributions to Yeezus as a performer and producer, as well as his co-sign from T.I., his mixtapes and singles have garnered him a vocal community of detractors. With the release last Friday of his major label debut Rodeo, many of my fellow rap critics seem delighted to put their pitchforks and pens to use and finally, at long last, run this abominable Rap Frankenstein out of town.

B.o.B. – Psycadelik Thoughtz

The Weeknd’s successful sports arena pop turn came after years of playing the approachable R&B villain to an increasingly curious audience.

Guilty Simpson – Detroit’s Son

Known best for his work with stellar producers like Apollo Brown, J Dilla, and Madlib, this rough, rugged and raw emcee always seems to come up on the wrong side of the ampersand.

K Camp – Only Way Is Up

From the minute he stepped onto the national stage, Kristopher Campbell’s pop rap ambitions have always been above-board.

Verbal Kent – Anesthesia

One of the sharpest darts at Mello Music, this Chicago native has the sort of indie rap career that used to be the stuff of Okayplayer readers’ dreams.

Chevy Woods – The 48 Hunnid Project The Taylor Gang loyalist seeks a single to capitalize on Wiz Khalifa’s 2015 surge, something he comes closest to accomplishing on the Dej Loaf collab ‘All Said And Done’.
