***IF YOU'RE NEW AND WOULD LIKE TO JOIN, READ THIS FIRST!***
It's the 22th/23nd of July
The point of these threads is to encourage people to look for new and interesting music. We do this by listening to and, ideally, discussing albums we've never heard before. Many of us already listen to new music daily; these people are in it to venture out of their comfort zone (this is a rather large point of contention) by listening to albums they otherwise wouldn't have, or just to shitpost relentlessly.
Most importantly, we've been omitting "most importantly" for too long now!
Is hip hop dying (again)?

There haven't been many good albums or mixtapes released this year, much like last year. A small handful of releases have been really hyped, but most of them ended up falling short (A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, Lupe Fiasco).
It seems like Future is only bright spot in an otherwise gloomy year for hip hop, releasing TWO great mixtapes and now a great album in DS2 as well. Is Future the future of rap? Can Kanye salvage this awful year with his next album?
The post-MBDTF world of hip hop was looking so good, up until 2014. What happened?

How is your family's taste, /mu/?
>Mother : average chanson française, mainly Renaud, and Muse.
>Father, almost patrician. Saw Pink Floyd in '78, fan of prog, suck Scott Walker's dick even if he prefers his pseudo experimental bullshit like Bisch Bosh and i can't stand this album. A bit of chanson and oldies electronics (whenever i play anything electronic he say that Kraftwerk made the same thing better and it bores me because it sometimes have nothing to do with kraftwerk). Plays a bit of guitar.
>Twin brother : /mu/core, jazz, emo, favorite bands/artists are Neutral Milk Hotel, Charles Mingus, and Fugazi. Is not interested in music anymore because he's an insecure twat and some elitist fuckers on the internet told him he had shit taste. Plays guitar.
>Older sister : indie rock from the early 2000's and turbopleb stuff, she thinks i'm some kind of elitist hipster because i don't like radio pop stuff. Plays a little bit of guitar.
>Older brother : lots of rock, really like Interpol and Jimi Hendrix. Also play bass, guitar, drums and a bit of piano.
