Before Kanye came up, mainstream rap was run exclusively for faster rap from people from the ghetto. He was the first middle class rap star, and he spoke about issues that people from outside the ghetto could relate. Suddenly it was ok to talk about stuff other than gangsta shit. A couple of years later, he released 808's & Heartbreak, an album more melodic than anything else hitting mainstream, with very minimal and overall sad feeling. Most rap fans agree that Drake wouldn't have had that big of a hit if 808's didn't paved the way.

>tfw people think Alessia Caracciolo ("Alessia Cara") is black because she's tan, has curly hair, and a good voice
>see black people complaining online and saying "she's only getting popular because she's light-skinned"

What are some awesome black metal albums that have come out in the past 5-6 years?
I feel like Deafheaven deserves to be mentioned. Although they might not be "trve" black metal, they are doing something new and cool.
Both Sunbather and New Bermuda are great records (Roads to Judah is good as well).
ITT: post about the labels that you follow.
I'm just finding that having labels that you like can be really crucial to discovering music. I'd love some general recs.
