    Good to see some SV recognition on here. I'd throw 6lack's latest 6pc EP into the mix too

    Glad to see AWT come up, forgot that was this year. I know a lot of people were let down by it but I loved it! If it counts then Act 2 is album of the year hands down

    Gonna toss a couple of names out there off the dome:

    Eternal Take - Lil Uzi Vert
    Savage Mode 2 - 21 Savage & Metro Boomin
    Bill Israel - Kodak Black
    Circles - Mac Miller
    Fetch the Bolt Cutters - Fiona Apple
    Alfredo - Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist
    PTSD - G Herbo
    Future Nostalgia - Dua Lipa
    A Muse in Her Feelings - dvsn
    The Slow Rush - Tame Impala
    It Is What It Is - Thundercat
    Women In Music Pt.III - HAIM

    Looking at it, we've had a phenomenal year in music by all accounts. I'm positive I'm missing a few more. But my favorite this year has been oddly enough Jay Electronica's Act II. Idk what it is about this s---, but I haven't resonated with an album this much since Summertime 06.

    I keep changing my mind about this lol. Gotta throw Pop Smoke - Meet the Woo 2 in there. Might actually be my AOTY tbh.

    In no specific order:

    Pop Smoke - Meet the Woo 2 / s---t for the Stars
    21 Savage & Metro Boomin - Savage Mode 2
    Freddie Gibbs & Alchemist - Alfredo
    Freddie Gibbs & Boldy James - The Price of Tea in China
    Lil Uzi Vert - Eternal Atake
    Lil Baby - My Turn
    J Hus - Big Conspiracy
    Drakeo the Ruler & JoogSzn - Thank You 4 Using GTL
    Jay Electronica - A Written Testimony / Act II
    Young Dolph - Rich Slave

    too many HMs to name off the top of my head Durk, Conway, Future, Herbo, Polo G, Blu & Exile, Weeknd, Key Glock, Mac, Nudy, RTJ, Nas, Spillage Village, Gucci, clipping... and I'm sure more I'm forgetting about

    Music To Be Murdered By of course.
    Russ had an album I guess, it was great. TI had one which was pretty good. Not sure if there are more like those one.

    Same here but it's not really a loss. Whenever I try to check some new albums out, most of the time I'm left dissapointed because of the fact that every track sounds the same and nothing really caught my ears.
