Nicki Minaj

Pink Friday

(Cash Money/Universal)

Sounds Like: A stunner of a debut where she gives us great guests, and both sides of the bitch we love—slaying, potty-mouthed MC and hood princess.

Free Association: Could do without the Bedingfield and will.i.am, but the rest is gold.

For Fans Of: Lil’ Kim, Young Money, Foxy Brown, Tweet, Rihanna. 

Tabi Bonney

Fre$h

(ihiphop Distribution)

Sounds Like: The D.C. West African’s sophomore effort is ambient and poppy in a nonabrasive way, specializing in smart lyricism over clubbed-out pop noise.

Free Association: Pleasant vibes care of FutureSex/LoveSounds-esque production.

For Fans Of: Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Wale, Organized Rhyme. 

Gangrene (The Alchemist + Oh No)
