The Best Rap Album of April 2012 - Chimera by Homeboy Sandman

You pop hip hop fans will be happy with April's releases from B.o.B., Nikki Minaj and Obie Trice. But I must be honest, their albums did nothing for me.

A rap album has to mean something, be clever and show real creativity on the rappers part.

Those aren't just signs of maturity I have always felt that way about the music that I allowed in to my consciousness.

I was very disappointed with the first half of Reks new album Straight, No Chaser which came off as a Statik Selektah posse album more than something from the mind of Reks. The six really good songs weren't enough for me to give my nod for Best Rap album of the Month of April.

Coming off his outstanding and first commercially successful album The Good Sun the University of Pennsylvania graduate and Hofstra Law School dropout hit us over the head with an EP that won my selection of best rap album this month.

I can't even imagine how brilliant the full album will be but for now you can pick up the future classic EP to place on your shelf.

I won't even attempt to use my limited intellect to describe each song I will just ask you to put down your hip hop pacifiers and stop sipping your similac long enough to have your mind expanded. If you dare.

  1. We can all relate to this song. I do wish I lived in the Hamptons, or at least in the summers. I took your dare, and it was worth it.
