Top 5 Rap Albums of 2017
2017 wasn’t the greatest yes run terms of rap, but it was the year that Rap became the biggest/most popular genre.
#5-Luv Is Rage 2
Lil Uzi was one of the biggest artist in 2016 and this was one of the most anticipated albums in recent history. He didn’t disappoint, to me at least. Despite getting critical hats, I think it’s a trap classic and left us with really good songs, and I only disliked 2-4 songs on this 20 song album
#4-All Amerikkan Badass
Joey Badass established his talent with this project at age 22. Despite not being his best project, it was extremely good and didn’t disappoint. This old school type political album will go down as one of the best 2017 albums
I didn’t enjoy Tyler until this album and I realized his talent. If you don’t like his edgy darker albums then you should listen to this one, as it has a much more lighter/softer feel to it while still keeping dark elements. This album has some of my favorite songs of all time and if it weren’t for the skits and short songs that had much more potential (Dropping Seeds..) this could’ve been #2 possibly even #1
I was about to put this #3 but relistened to it. Kendrick Lamar is my 2nd favorite artist of all time, and despite this easily not being a top 2 album from him, it’s another classic under his belt. I didn’t enjoy this at first as much as I do now, mostly because of how much better GKMC/TPAB are, but that aside it’s still an AMAZING album. This to me is what made Rap overcome pop in popularity, please name when a rapper was bigger then Kendrick in 2017. He was everywhere
#1-4eva is Mighty Long Time
Damn...I slept on this for the longest time (no pun intended). This is an underrated masterpiece and I’m mad this man doesn’t get the praise he deserves. This is a classic to me, and possibly the best underground rap album of all time. Not only is this man extremely lyrical, but has entertaining hooks and I’m surprised this album didn’t blow up. If you haven’t listened to this yet, trust me, listen!
