Kendrick Lamar - Damn

Best Track - DNA

An album so good it can be listened to in reverse order. Like all of Kendrick's albums the planning and links between the songs leave you with new details and takeaways every time you listen to it.  

The great American flag is wrapped in drag with explosives
Compulsive disorder, sons and daughters
Barricaded blocks and borders
Look what you taught us!
It’s murder on my street, your street, back streets


Future - HNDRXX

Best Track - Coming Out Strong

As usual Future released a lot of music this year with this album being his finest work. It has a great flow to it and can suit whatever mood you are in.

Oh, let’s not be alone
Empty thoughts fill the room
Breathe for me and I’ll breathe for you
— Selfish


Loyle Carner - Yesterday's Gone

Best Track - Mean it in the Morning

This debut album is incredibly impressive, it's mellow tones and heartfelt storytelling really takes you on a journey every time you listen to it. A perfect album to listen to when you are trying to relax after a long day.

It’s been a minute since I’ve been with some women
Not ‘cause they been lacking, just I’ve been lacking the feeling
I’ve been staring at the ceiling
— Damselfly



Best Track - BLEACH

This is definitely an album that has a sense of joy and fun to it. A lot to like from this group as they released THREE albums this year. We will see if they can keep up the quality and quantity in 2018 as they are currently on a prolific pace. 

They gave me mood stabilizers but when I came off ‘em, I was violent
Took the drugs that I wanted which didn’t help with the voices
They just grew louder and louder
They called the people who’d just chatter and chatter
I juggle all my personalities

Drake - More Life

Best Track - Madiba Riddim

A surprising album from Drake as this album utilizes a different style of beats than his prior albums. It has a tropical feel to it and is best enjoyed when the weather is nice. 

I’ve been down so long, it look like up to me
They look up to me
I got fake people showin’ fake love to me
— Fake Love
