3. Mad Decent
Star Player: Riff Raff
If you’ve ever been to a Mad Decent Block Party, you already know they have a formula for success when it comes to music. That’s why the indie label’s premier hip-hop signee Riff Raff—whether you rock with him or not—is an eclectic personality that’s hard to ignore. With big collaborators like Drake and A$AP Rocky already announced for his upcoming 2014 project, Neon Icon, we may very well be on the brink of one of the most unexpectedly dope rap albums in a long time. It’s worth looking into, right, guys?
