The Five Best Rap Albums of February  

February was a short month, but new releases didn’t stagnate in the hip-hop world. A batch of fine albums graced the lands, and XXL has handpicked five best from the crop to recommend for your listening pleasure. Nostalgia—when done right—usually works better than approaching trends. It’s not so much a fear of change, than an appreciation of the past. Czarface made strides as a tyrant of throwback variance, while Ill Bill recruited New York’s finest beatsmiths of the 1990s. Oh No breathed new life into tired TV ads, whereas horror core veteran Brotha Lynch Hung revamped his formula. Past meets present, and present meets past, here are the five best rap albums of February 2013. —Jaeki Cho (@JaekiCho)
