Kiss The Ring
Label: Cash Money
By now, Khaled's histrionic and self-congratulatory smorgasbords have grown familiar, as are the complaints that Khaled doesn't actually do much besides "executive produce" (assemble the talent) and scream out "DJ Khaled!" The worst that can be said about Kiss the Ring is that it lacks a sequel to 2011's big Drake-assisted hit, "I'm On One." "Hip-Hop," where Nas calls his beloved genre "a whore/ you can have her," is a nastily implicit critique of this album; more entertaining, if less relevant, is Kanye West doing his angry rich-man bit on "I Wish You Would."
