Listen to selections from this list on our Spotify playlist and Apple Music playlist. The marching, Honorable C. The song marks college players as victims of institutional suppression of opportunity, implicating the system as exploitative of the primarily black stars who earn billions in revenue for others. Zaytoven gets the most out of every rapper. His talky flows scan as bar-heavy despite most of his raps being filler, simply because their ferocity can raze beats to cinders. He runs rampant, bullying, threatening, and coercing his enemies, his claims brought to life by his bum-rushing delivery. The song made clear that DaBaby was wound up and raring to go before he exploded this year, and no one has stopped him yet. He recounts awkward drug sales, a hookup in a Burger King bathroom, and two encounters with a stripper: as a client and as a fellow patron at a laundromat. Skeevy and giddy, he makes the gutter sound like a theme park.
2 Chainz: “NCAA”
While was a year of titans re-entering the fray — we got albums last year from very nearly every heavy hitter, from Drake to Nicki and Kanye West to Jay-Z — was all about new names. DaBaby bookended the year with two thunderous statements in Baby on Baby and Kirk; Megan Thee Stallion established herself, quickly and confidently, as one of the most charismatic lyricists of her young generation; and Roddy Ricch broke through seemingly every month with a new hit, before dropping his uniformly excellent Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial. Meanwhile, near-veterans Young Thug and Tyler, the Creator put out statements that, in retrospect, served as coronations. They, along with the chaos-courting Brockhampton, put out their most assured work to date, and established their commercial weight alongside critical consensus. These are our picks for the best hip-hop albums of the year, now that all the introductions have been made. Snubnose is the rare concept album that manages not to drown under the weight of its own pretension. NoCap is defined by melancholy. His AutoTuned warble quivers with regret even amid triumph.

In the later half of the s, hip-hop music officially became the most dominate genre in America. And meanwhile, the line between hip-hop and pop has become almost non-existent, as pop music adopted the production, writing, and vocals of rap. But, this year marked a time when the wide influence of hip-hop went even wider. The likes of Rosalia and J Balvin push the sounds of flamenco and Reggaeton further into the forefront of American mainstream music, Lil Nas X is challenging dominant genre labeling and blurring the lines between hip-hop and country music. This is what makes rap the most exciting style of music today.
