    We see Action Bronson level a stage crasher about once a month, but news that Earl Sweatshirt had hit an intruder to his live set came as a bit of a surprise. However, watching the footage made his motivation a little more clear, as the fan grabbed him unknowingly from behind mid-performance.

    How the hell did we make it through fifty percent of 2015 already? June has seemingly crept up out of nowhere, marking the halfway checkpoint of a year that, so far, has been ripe with exceptional releases from some of hip-hop’s brightest emcees. Releases-- highly anticipated or dropped by surprise, some commercial mixtapes and some full albums -- have infused the year with some fun that surely help the time pass as we approach the new year.

    Last Thursday (May 28), Tyler, the Creator was going through old photos, and simultaneously tweeting his nostalgic feelings. After tweeting, "5 years later isnt that long but wow soooo much has happened," he wrote, "although it's no more, those 7 letters are forever." The "7 letters" seemed to refer to "OFWGKTA," thus many believed Tyler's tweets to mark the official end of Odd Future.

    While there were a couple of debuts this week, the top 2 albums were not able to be unseated. Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly is still sitting comfortably atop the charts, while the Empire soundtrack trails not-so-far behind. Both Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt had their opening weeks, with Bronsolino edging out his Odd Future competitor by a good 5 spots on the Billboard 200. Elsewhere, releases from Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and J. Cole, continued to accumulate sales, with a couple of them edging their way toward platinum status.

    Last Monday (March 23), both Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt dropped new albums. A week later, we've got brand new Wale and Ludacris albums to focus on, but, in such a busy 2015, lets not forget about quality albums when they come our way.

    10 Essential MellowHigh Tracks

    MellowHigh is an offshoot of the Odd Future group MellowHype. It gets a tad complicated, but stay with us now. MellowHype = Hodgy Beats (rapper) + Left Brain (producer) But when you add weedhead Domo Genesis in the mix, it becomes MellowHigh...usually. Sometimes they forgo the Left Brain production for someone else, too. MellowHigh only has one self-titled album out and a few scattered tracks from features and mixtapes. However, the album is pretty sick, and if you're down with Odd Future's brand of crazy West Coast rap, you're sure to dig it.

    Review: Earl Sweatshirt's "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside"

    Earl Sweatshirt’s I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Get Outside is a short and moody album. It also happens to be a very focused, quality listen, and possibly the best output we’ve received from the California native. Through bummed-out stoned raps and shoegazing beats, Earl proves to be one of the most talented, albeit depressed, rappers in the game.

    Action Bronson's Mr. Wonderful was much heavier on the promo side than its same-day release partner I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, but despite that, the two are neck-in-neck when it comes to sales.

    When Earl Sweatshirt was just 15, he was rapping about raping nuns and slitting wrists, so it's hard to imagine his lyrics getting any more demented than that. But on his new album, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, they do, albeit in a more subtle, depressing way.

    Last week was a great one to be a hip-hop fan, but a bad one to be a record label executive. To Pimp A Butterfly has some considering it a classic already, and we have a new Earl Sweatshirt album to look forward to next week. Sony and Interscope may have gotten put on blast, but it's OK: Chris Brown's off probation.
