September 2016 is no more. It was a good month, a month that gave us much new music as we could handle. September 2016 saw the release of dozens of quality hip hop and R&B albums and mixtapes. We whittled these down to what we believe to be the twelve most significant releases of the month, and we want your help to decide which project was the absolute best. Here are the twelve:

10 Photos Of Rappers With Their Pets Apr 11, 2016 at 05:18pm
Fame and exotic pets go hand-in-hand. Just ask King George I, who ruled England in the early 18th century, who kept a pet human. Rappers are no different. While many rappers like to keep it down-to-earth w dogs, some prefer to ball out and domesticate animals you've never even heard of like endangered saber-toothed manta rays.

In an ideal world, Remy Ma would be in this edition of 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week instead of being in jail for another week. But, then again, Remy Ma wouldn't have been serving time in the first place. Still, life goes on and the tweets still roll.

Stream Westside Gunn's "FLYGOD" Album Mar 11, 2016 at 03:11pm
Westside Gunn has emerged as one of New York's most promising up-and-coming emcees. His cinematic soundscapes and eye for street-level detail have earned him comparisons to certain Wu-Tang members, but his imagination is all his own. And that's partly because he doesn't hail from one of the five boroughs, but, instead, from Buffalo, which Gunn paints as a fearsome (and freezing) place. Gunn now resides in Atlanta, and living in the industry hub has helped him make astute observations on the state of the rap game.

In addition to Vince, he's worked with the A$AP crew, Action Bronson, Freddie Gibbs, and Danny Brown among others.

#TBT: Mixtape Danny Brown Aug 18, 2016 at 12:06pm
Most Danny Brown fans got hooked around XXX ("Monopoly"!), but in truth Brown lived a full rap career before XXX ever came out. Between 2003 and 2010 he put together an eleven-project run that culminated in his 2010 free album The Hybrid.  Brown is 35 years old now and more popular than ever. With his album Atrocity Exhibition due out next month, now is an appropriate time to revisit the lesser-known stage of his career.

#TBT: Danny Brown Mixtape Cuts May 7, 2015 at 02:06pm
Over the past 5 years, Danny Brown has made his insane rap style appeal to a massive audience. Through strategic collaborations and, let's face it, good music, Brown has gone from the mixtape circuit to become one of the biggest rappers in the game. Danny Brown has released nine mixtapes since 2007. There's been four in the Detroit State of Mind series, along with collaborative tapes with Johnson&Johnson and Tony Yayo. Each tape was a step in leading Brown to where he is today: right up there at the top of the hip-hop game.

Meet Donmonique: Brooklyn's Resident Thirst Trapper Jul 15, 2015 at 11:30am
In terms of songs that use the names of caucasian female celebrities to stand in for other white substances, Donmonique's "Pilates" is second only to Migos' "Hannah Montana," the track that may have started the whole trend. Listing Jenner sisters and former Disney stars on the hook, the 20-year-old Brooklyn rapper rides the minimal, "Vans"-style beat to paydirt, securing herself quite the underground hit, seemingly from out of nowhere.

Danny Brown Announces New Tour Dates Jul 18, 2016 at 12:22pm
Earlier today we reported on the title of Danny Brown's new album, and he's followed up that news rather quickly with a tour announcement. The Detroit native hasn't announced a release date yet for Atrocity Exhibition, so it's unclear at the moment if the tour will lead up to the album release or follow it-- we just know that the album is arriving in the fall, and the tour will hit around that time too.
