    Man, I've made no bones of the fact that guys like Tekashi and Yachty and the likes just aren't for me (altho Gummo is hard), but to say he has no talent...come on, man. If that's the case and it's so easy, where's your chart-topping rap career?

    Honestly I forgot Book of Ryan came out this year, probably because I was underwhelmed by PRhyme 2. I'll have to check that out along with Denzel and Vince Staples which I haven't heard yet
    Personally I think 69's talent is in marketing rather than music making. He's a walking meme.

    I still think TA13OO is AOTY. The concept is great, it gets progressively darker and more aggressive, Denzel has great flow and wordplay and his hooks never miss.

    FM! is virtually perfect considering the concept behind it aside from the length (it's 22 minutes, but I easily could have listened to that for a full hour -- the production, transitions, lyrics, vibe... it's all amazing. It's too short to call a challenger for AOTY though, but Vince has 4 projects supposedly coming out next year and I'm ****ing stoked for that).

    He has a couple songs that amp me up. I have zero respect for him as a human being though.

    Don’t think he’s anywhere CLOSE to good as he likes to brag he is with all his hot 100 success or whatever it is he brags about. Done a good job at marketing himself on Social media with all his trolling tho.

    As for what I’m listening to, it’s more an assortment of various songs from various artists. Very rarely do I find an entire album appealing. The last 3 albums I liked the vast majority of the songs would be Meeks last 2 albums and then for whatever reason I love HENDRXX by future.

    A list of some of the different artists you’ll find on my Spotify would be:

    City and colour
    Khalid
    Maroon 5
    Creed
    Jules Santana
    Loud luxury
    Childish gambino
    Justin timberlake
    Styles p
    6lack
    Mario
    ASAP rocky
    Ed Sheeran
    Aaliyah
    The weekend
    Drake
    Travis Scott
    Juice world


    There’s more, but that would be a sample of it.

    I’m not saying I have the best taste in music or anything like that lol. I just think 69 is a POS and not anywhere close to as hot as he thinks he is.

    Cheers

    “Cause if looks could kill, I could start a hate war too ‘cause I’d murder you straight *****es by turning the gaze on you!”

    Best RAPPER alive and maybe of all time. Eminem consistently has rhymes and wordplay that few can match.

    We are all one with each other, have some sympathy for the boy. He can redeem himself, I believe.

    Anyways, Offset's definitely gonna come out with the best of the solo Migos projects in a couple of weeks. Just a heads up.

    Meeks album is fantastic. The producer cuts go hard and the verses are spectacular.

    I wasn’t super impressed with the Meek Mill album on my first listen. I’m not super into the street cred raps anymore I guess.

    Yes and no. On one hand, Teriyaki Sixix Neinine is garbage. On the other hand, I grew up loving the Roots, and the notion of listening to an entire Black Thought solo album in 2018 is about as appealing to me as repeating high school Spanish. Might be useful, really not interested.

    Amazes the hell out of me no one here acknowledged the existence of an Alchemist+Curren$y+Freddie Gibbs album. You get just the right mix of impeccable production, stoner cleverness, and cold blooded murder **** all in one package.

    almost the end of the year and got my spotify wrapped, now wondering where y'all would rank albums this year or have a top-5 list? There was so much stuff I enjoyed this year that making a list is super hard.

    1. TA13OO
    2. Daytona
    3. DiCaprio 2
    4. Kids See Ghosts
    5. FM!

    HM: KOD, TESTING, Astroworld, Kamikaze, Book of Ryan, Tha Carter V, Some Rap Songs

    still haven't listened to Redemption lol

    still love the concept of TA13OO and can listen to it from beginning to end and never get tired of it. Same with Daytona, but it's a bit too short to put at #1 imo.

    DiCaprio 2 really made me think about putting it in the #2 or even #1 spot.

    Kids See Ghosts, again, on the shorter side, but it's a beautiful, beautiful project.

    FM! is probably my personal favourite, or top-3, but it's waaaay to short to put in the top-3. 5 is just a nod to one of my personal fav projects of the year. Literally the only negative is that it's so short, but I'll give it a pass since Vince has about 4 projects lined up for 2019.

    Initially was pretty meh on TESTING, but kept listening and it's real good. I like it a lot. ASAP is so versatile.

    Book of Ryan is longer, but Royce rarely -- if ever, misses. He's super consistent and this project wasn't any different.

    Astroworld mostly lived up to the hype for me. Some filler songs in there (lol why was Butterfly Effect on there again?) but I enjoyed and keep going back to a lot of songs and keep them in my rotation.

    probably last among those listed is Kamikaze. While much better than Revival, when the hype of the surprise drop wore off, it's very much something that you had to listen to AT THAT TIME. There's very little I go back to from that album aside from from the Joyner track on it. I wouldn't say it holds up much at this time, other than at least it shows Em can still flow and ride a beat and not be choppy as ****. For that reason I include it, but it'd probably be last of all those listed, and maybe even behind others that I didn't list and didn't listen through all the way. In fact, I'd probably even have Ye ahead of it.

    I'd definitely have Earl's "Some Rap Songs" ahead of it, which while it started out iffy to me, and the mixing is kind of weird (similar to Tyler's Cherry Bomb that kind of mutes Earl's lyricism, which is also muted on this project and not at Earl's standard, imo) it turns out to be a really nice, beautiful project.

    all in all, real good year for high quality releases, even those that I didn't list. Only way it could have been better for me from a personal standpoint was if we got that Q album that was delayed after Mac's death, but that one is understandable. Also a Kendrick drop that wasn't a movie soundtrack, but considering we got DAMN. just last April, that wasn't expected. Also, need that Joey BadA$$.

    final rankings probably:

    1. Ta13oo
    2. Daytona
    3. DiCaprio 2
    4. Kids See Ghosts
    5. FM!
    6. Book of Ryan
    7. Testing
    8. Tha Carter V
    9. Astroworld
    10. KOD
    11. Some Rap Songs
    12. Ye
    13. Kamikaze

    (of those listed, also listened to some other stuff through the year, like Rich The Kid's project, Scorpion, Dummy Boy, etc., but not listing them here)

    I listened to both Logic projects this year. YCIV was meh, but I liked Bobby Tarantino II. That was more of the Logic I like (aside from the Everyday track). I’d probably put that above Kamikaze on my list too lol.

    Nasir felt so uninspired, maybe that’s just me tho.
