Fat Jon – God’s Fifth Wish
The first note, and I was hit with a wave of nostalgia unlike anything on this list. Most people associate the smooth elegance of this brand of hip hop to Nujabes. However, let’s not forget Fat Jon’s brilliance played right alongside his. Fat Jon’s work is magical. Always has been. And really, we all needed that kind of magic in 2020. It’s a warm embrace, a close friend when you need someone to lean on. Truly, the type of music that makes you feel incredible peace in a time when everything is just so full of turmoil. It’s not just a nostalgia trip. The music is just beautiful.
