Annual Top 10 in no particular order (but I would probably hand Run the Jewels AOTY):

Run The Jewels - S/T
Danny Brown - Old
Milo - Things That Happen At Day/Things That Happen At Night

The latter half of Bad Guy is hands down one of my favorite tracks of the year. I don't know how anybody could not love those final verses

Agreed. Dude is still an icon. I'm happy to see it. I hope he keeps working in this current mindset, I think he's still got a little fight left in him

I like Drake, I really do, and his last album was great. I think he's innovative in his own right, but he's not necessarily doing anything that risky or new. Fuck, Outkast was blurring the lines of...

I'm trying to figure out how Eminem has affected Drake, or lesser artists, from becoming popular. Or how he is had lead to them getting hate? I'm failing to understand.

Every artist has haters...literally every artist. I don't think that should be used as a leverage on their level of talent. What's the point?

I agree, I like Drake, but I just don't think he can be used as an example of someone in hip-hop that is being "held back" from pushing something forward. He's good at what he does, but in terms of...

He pushed 991,000 units of Nothing Was The Same as of last chart. Doesn't seem like a lot of people

Yeah, didn't know people actually took that controversy seriously. So is Pusha T banned from being liked as well because he thinks Drake is a bitch? Or is Pusha acceptable?

Who the fuck on planet earth looks down upon Drake?

Edit: More importantly, what is Drake doing that is so cool and different? Danny Brown is doing interesting things, I'll give ya that, but Drake...

lol. Drake and Danny Brown. Drake is as pop as it gets, and Danny Brown would be the first to tell you that Eminem is a legend.

I think its a matter of age in some cases. For those of us that grew up listening to Eminem as he actually came on to the scene, and put out three classic hip-hop albums, one of which is no question...

I fucking love this album. There are a few mediocre tracks, but then there are about 4-5 tracks that could easily be the best songs I've heard all year.

On first listen...I think the whole thing is solid as hell. XXX may have got the buzz started, but I think OLD is about to be his break out.

Since I haven't posted on AP in a long time, I thought I'd leave this here because usually people in here have a little better taste than the outside world. Anyways, I've been helping my good friend...

"A Christmas Fucking Miracle" is the best closing track I've heard in awhile. One of my favorites on the entire album

I'm fanboy as hell, but this is already one of the best things I've heard all year. Will definitely be at the top of my list of hip-hop albums, if not the very top. They're a match made in heaven.

Album is great, but I would still put it towards the end of their discography. For me, SSFDL/Alligator/Cherry Tree/Boxer were all perfect, while this and High Violet have a lot of moments where they...

I was about to say the same thing. Mac is 3/3 this month, which is something I thought I'd never say in a million years. This, the Ab-Soul track, and Hodgey/Domo produced by Larry, all pretty fucking...

At this point, I've probably listened to the Pharrell teaser > 30 times. So excited to hear the whole thing, fucking love the classic disco-pop sound.

Out of all the sweet Captain Murphy artwork out there they picked this, fuuuuuuuck. That's really, really disappointing.

I would've preferred this one:

Absolutely. I agree 100%

I love it. Tyler has always praised N.E.R.D/Neptunes and that's really really shining through on this album, and the production is lightyears ahead of his past work. This...

Also, has anyone been listening to Clipping? It's probably on here somewhere (came out a month ago I think?), but I didn't see it in the recents, so sorry if this is a repost or I already missed out...
