30. A$AP Rocky "Goldie"
Label: A$AP Worldwide, Polo Grounds, RCA, Sony
"Goldie" didn't move Rocky from Internet sensation to Billboard force like it aimed to, but that lack of a prerequisite pop sheen is why this record comes across as so unapolegtic and endearing. Rocky is so in the element, his flow is so perfectly in the pocket it's obvious you're in the midst of greatness. Nothing quite captures the high-brow/low-brow paradox of A$AP's worldview quite like the idea of sipping expensive champagne and chasing it with a 40. Let "Fuckin' Problems" be Rocky's big hit, "Goldie" is his most realized moment. — IA
