ben kuru says:

5. Jidenna: the chief
4. 2 Chains: Pretty girls like trap music
2. Tyler the creator: Flowerboy
1. Kendrick Lamar: DAMN

All about replay value to me. Each album has its own direction and they’re all dope in their own way. Ik SZA is R&B, but holy shit the album was beautiful. Jidenna is underrated imo. Listen to Long live the chief and you’ll understand why I say that. The entire album was good. 2 Chains might seem out of place on here, but he delivered a great project. I was never a big 2 Chains fan but it caught my attention and it was great. I just related to Tyler the creators album in a way I can’t for most projects. Only reason why it’s 2 instead of 1 is cuz of replay value. Like yeah I can relate to what you’re saying, but I don’t want that to be what I listen to all the time. That’s why DAMN. Is first. I’m constantly playing it and I still catch onto new things. It’s a great project

chelsea6671 says:

i totally agree with everything Myke said. I couldn’t get into Chill, Dummy on first listen, then it really clicked.

Christoff Wilhelm says:

Im sorry but you all get L’s for snubbing Joey like that. AABA was better than that Oddisee album 4:44, and that new Freddie Gibbs tape from a lyrical, production, and overall message standpoint. Cant believe it didnt make on 1 of y’alls lists.

Arthur van der Hoek says:

Where RTJ 3 tho?

Floyd Clifton says:

No Run the Jewels 3?!

Noah Rogers says:

Hip hop is dead judging by this list lmao

YouYouYou!!! Artist Album Marathons says:

3. 4:44
2. All The Beauty In This Whole Life
1. Big Fish Theory
