My favorite non metal or rap album has to be King Dude. I know he is a metal dude, but this project isn't and it is really on point. Would make a great later Gobi set
For real. That album is the shit... Excited to check it out live later this week
Added some of everyone's picks to my "need to get and listen to" list so I can try and catch up in the next few weeks. Thanks, as always, this thread really helps me each year.
And TallGuy -- I'm with you on the Ambalance -- Cokewave EP. One of my most listened.
