The Best Rap Album of March 2015 - Words Paint Pictures by Rapper Big Pooh

For those of you who are new to my blog let me tell you briefly how this works.

I listen to every single album and EP released each month. Then I mention the strongest albums and make my selection for what I believe to be the best album released that month.

I define a strong album as having at least 6 strong songs that I can put on a playlist that I can rock for a while. A weak joint is anything less than that and I don't even mention them.

Some of you artists and rabid fans will probably say he couldn't possibly have heard this or that joint. Umm yeah, I have.

One more thing, I don't give a fuck about what's hot, poppin' or mainstream.

I try not to shit one anyone's work because it was probably the best effort they could give and I don't like squashing someone's effort. Except for Kid Kudi who just fucking sucks all the be damned but that's personal. Even though I don't know the dude I just don't fuckin like that cat.

But anyway, let's get to it shall we?!?

I heard the Kendrick Lamar album Pimp to A Butterfly, ehh ok.

The strongest albums in March came from an assortment of dudes that I wasn't really expecting much from.

DJ EFN dropped a compilation album with an assortment of solid MC's titled Another Time. Seven very solid songs on the joint and deserves a listen. 

Cannibal Ox released their album titled Blade of Ronin on which they were even able to make U-God sound good on a track. I couldn't fucking believe it. Definitely an album to buy especially if you are on that Annunaki shit which I am not but I still appreciate the dope lyrics and strong production.

Mello Music Group brought their entire crew of label mates together on their album Persona. Nothing earth shattering or groundbreaking for hip hop but definitely a bunch of solid joints that will be banging in my Jag this summer.

Action Bronson was able to squeeze out of his fat sweaty ass a decent album called Mr. Wonderful which I enjoyed because he was clearly having fun and took chances. There are rumors that this might be Bronson's last album. That rumor came from the same people who said he was going on a diet last year so we shall see.

Coming out of the Mello Music Group is the artist who dropped the best rap album this month and that dude is Rapper Big Pooh.

With lyrics that are not only dope but intelligent and socially relevant Pooh had me listening to each joint about half a dozen times to pick up all those jewels being dropped. However Pooh is clever to not preach but to speak like the old heads used to do back in the day in Harlem on a corner standing on a box spitting fire that you can't disagree with about the plight of the black man in America in 2015.

The super tight beats and production by Apollo Brown keeps this from being just another in a line of copy cat trap house sounding albums that quite frankly I am bored to death of. Big up to Apollo for keeping my head knocking with the boom bap soul that I love so much.

And that's it the best rap album of March 2015 is Words Paint Pictures by Rapper Big Pooh.
