Every year, Soundcheck presents "Critics Week," a series highlighting the best and worst of music of the year. Host John Schaefer is joined by music critics to discuss the year’s best- and worst- albums in pop, hip-hop, classical, opera, rock, jazz, world and Latin.
Between Kanye and Eminem's redemption stories and Drake and Nicki's break-outs, Soundcheck focuses on the year's best hip-hop releases. HipHopDX.com's Editor-in-Chief Jake Paine joins us to share his list.
Soundcheck® is WNYC’s on-air and online destination for new music, live performances and engaging conversations with artists, critics and tastemakers. Listeners start the conversation at Soundcheck.org and continue it with host John Schaefer every weeknight at 9 p.m. on 93.9 FM and WNYC.org.
