Wasn't Jeep Music released after Yeezus too?

Totally agree with the high ranking of Chance, Run The Jewels and Drake. I do think that Deniro Farrar's two mixtapes should get more (any) love on these year-end lists though.

My favorite records thus far are: Deniro Farrar - The Patriarch (really, really underrated mixtape) Justin Timberlake - The 20/20 Experience Chance the Rapper - Acid Rap Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City

Man, I didn't think I liked Future, but now I have like 5 of his hooks lodged in my brain.

He destroyed Three Kings, and Watch the Throne was pretty amazing too

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, I used to think this album was overrated (I favored Revolver and then Abbey Road for a while), but I now see the light

And that video was solid, Creative Control is always on point

The second half of Jay-Z's verse sounds kinda like a 2 Chainz flow

This is much better than that Radiohead collab

More song related than video related, but I absolutely love how at the end of Kanye's verse when the beat is getting too fast, 2 Chainz just busts in and settles everything back down

June 6, 2012 on Kanye West – “Mercy” Video (Feat. Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz)
Some of those Fear of God tracks are good, but it's nuts to say he's better now than he was in the We Got It 4 Cheap/Lord Willin'/Hell Hath No Fury era: Mr. Me Too, Momma I'm So Sorry, Keys Open Doors, GRINDIN', etc.

May 29, 2012 on Pusha T – “Exodus 23:1″ Video
I did not anticipate Bey sounding this awesome over a Luger-y beat. He should get a feature on that next MMG album, haha, I guarantee he'll sound more comfortable than Wale or Stalley

Just looking at the Mixtape of the Week entries for the past couple of months I see tapes by Gucci Mane, Alley Boy, Action Bronson, Rick Ross, Juicy J, and 2 Chainz. I don't think any of those guys are really aspiring to be laid-back socially conscious rappers.

It would be pretty sweet if MMG Vol. 2 tape had some Block Beattaz-type work on it. I can't imagine Wale and Stalley sounding too good over a bunch of Lex Luger-y beats.

Bon Iver, Bon Iver was an awesome record, it takes a little longer to get into than his first, but it's really worth it.
