Top 25 Hip-Hop/R&B Projects of 2015

Happy Holidays from UPC. One year ago, we predicted 2015 would be a major year for the music world. But I don’t think any of us expected the sheer amount of quality albums and mixtapes that came to fruition. Drake and Kanye West failed to deliver their studio albums, but even that didn’t matter.

Continuing on the notion that The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack is probably going to be one of the best we’ve heard this year, RZA drops another track to keep audiences anticipating. This time, it’s a colossal collaboration between three 90’s New York rap legends over the menacing instrumental rhythms of  Toronto’s BADBADNOTGOOD and...
