Only Kanye could pull off such an erratic release of a record, and then change it however many times…I think there were at least 5 versions of The Life of Pablo. Kanye might have lost his mind by the end of the year, but he did leave us with a few great tracks, Wolves being one of my favorites.
Every fan of 90s era hip-hop was salivating for this one once it was announced. In the same year we lost Phife Dawg, we got a long awaited release from a crew I didn’t think would ever make music again.

Another year…another “best of” list. Below you’ll find my top 25 albums of 2016 (see my favorite EPs here).
Like previous years, this isn’t the quintessential album list of 2016. These are my personal favorites. The albums I couldn’t get enough of. I’m sure you’ll agree with a few and disagree with even more, and that’s exactly how it should be. We all have different tastes and music would be super boring if we all listened and love the same stuff.
With that said, am I missing any of your favorites? Leave a comment and let me know. Music discovery is one of life’s simple pleasures and it’s never too late to add new favorites to the list. Enjoy.
