I've heard good things about Vince Staples. I need to check him out.

Sabrina's album is great. Such a smooth, enjoyable listen.

I didn't like Faith & Biggie's joint album. It was a mess IMO.

The biggest surprise for me while compiling this countdown was the fact that there are a lot of less unknown acts making it to the top 30, including the three acts above.

I enjoy Daley's song with Jill Scott but the album overall is too mellow for me. Same with Sevyn, I looove "Before I Do" so much but again, the whole album is too slow, I was actually expecting a bunch of Urban-tinged tracks from her but nope, there's none.

As for Mura Masa, I was not familiar with his name prior to this countdown but I decided to check out "Love$ick" and it's such a jam!
