2018: Best EPs

So here is a list of my favorite EPs from 2018.   I easily could have extended this list to 25 projects and been really comfortable about that.  However, I really wanted to showcase what I consider to be the best projects in a year where there was so much greatness to consider.  In the end, there were no votes, judges, or etcetera.  This was simply a matter of personal preference.  I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did.

Illmaculate & OnlyOne – GATTACA (Official Music Video) feat. J-Rome

OnlyOne and Illmaculate are known for making great music but this cut is among the most premium.   This is just some really good music period.   Chase Moore continues the string of flawless production with this concoction and J-Rome blesses the hook to complete the effect.  Meanwhile the two emcees drop incessantly dope lyricism that will at moment leave you a little slack jawed.

This is just a pre-emptive strike of what’s to come when they drop their album this summer, Only & Ill.

Illmaculate & OnlyOne – Marathon (prod. by Chase Moore)

OnlyOne and Illmaculate are back at it and knifing through this ill production from Chase Moore.  The pairing has always been one of the most formidable in hip hop and it’s great to see them bringing in 2015 the right way.  OnlyOne still remains one of our favorite wordsmiths on the site and on this song you can see why…Can’t wait to hear the full project.

Note:

This is not a review of any sort.  This is just ‘us’ letting ‘you’ know that this available now.  Bagwell is a favorite and a mainstay on HHD and it’s only fitting for me to encourage you to go pick this up.  90% of the music coming out these days, you have heard before.  There’s a lot of the same old cafeteria cooking going on in the lab these days.  But when something unique comes out, we’ve got to support.  Bagwell is among a very minute population of artists who consistently gives us quality of a different ilk and always makes it fresh for the fans.   So make sure you cop from the Bandcamp page now and check back here later, when I will have more time to do an official review!
