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

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. Future...
