    We should do a ranking the years of the decade thread at some point.

    When we do, I'll definitely be listing 2018 near the top. I feel like it was the year the rate and volume of rap releases just exploded but at the same time gave us so much new amazing music - from established and new artists alike. Even with the insane amount of new s--- coming out today (and half of these havent even sunk in yet fully), I still find myself constantly returning to my Best of 2018 playlist.

    Not only that but so much happened. Hip Hop became the number 1 genre in the US. GOOD Music surgical Summer. Drake/Pusha beef. We lost Mac. --- got killed, 6ix9ine blew the f--- up then had his career ended in the space of 12 months. Cardi B takeover. Travis' ascension. Cudi's return. MAGA Ye. Wayne finally dropped C5. Everyone had CAPITALIZED album titles. Insane year.

    JPEGMAFIA - VETERAN
    Kendrick Lamar & TDE - Black Panther: The Album
    Nipsey Hussle - Victory Lap
    6ix9ine - DAY69 / DUMMY BOY
    XXXTENTACION - ?
    Saba - CARE FOR ME
    Cardi B - Invasion of Privacy
    Playboi Carti - Die Lit
    Pusha T - DAYTONA
    Kanye West & Kid Cudi - Kids See Ghosts
    Blueface - Famous Cryp
    Denzel Curry - TA13OO
    Travis Scott - ASTROWORLD
    Mac Miller - Swimming
    Lil Wayne - Tha Carter V
    Lil Baby & Gunna - Drip Harder
    Metro Boomin - NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES
    Benny the Butcher - Tana Talk 3
    Earl Sweatshirt - Some Rap Songs
    21 Savage - I Am > I Was

    way too many songs to list em, these are a few gems I keep returning to









    what did i miss?
