Best of 2018

The year is coming to a close and as always I will recap my top picks of all the music released this year. A lot of good music was released this year; so much that I didn’t really catch everything that came out. It was really impossible for me to really digest all the music that was being released. Some projects I listened to once and never got a chance to listen again. Then there’s some albums that I’ve loved after the first listen and kept in rotation. There were so many short EPs that I loved and decided to not include on this list. This list was for albums only and they aren’t in any particular order.


  1. Victory Lap – Nipsey Hussle ( My favorite album of the year! No doubt about it!)
  2. Daytona – Pusha T
  3. Redemption – Jay Rock
  4. Championship – Meek Mill
  5. Period – City Girls
  6. Freedom Summer – Trans Lee
  7. Luca Brasi 3 – Kevin Gates


  1. East Atlanta love letter – 6lack
  2. K.T.S.E – Teyana Taylor
  3. Saturn – Nao
  4. Passion Like Fire – Tamia
  5. Black Denim – Deandre
  6. Platinum Fire – Arin Ray
  7. The Kids Are Alright – Chloe x Halle

Honorable Mention and I mean very honorable, but she still hasn’t given us one full body of work and I’m tired of H.E.R.! Girl grace us with a great FULL body of work already. I’ve loved everything she’s put out, but give us the album! I couldn’t make a list without adding her name. Shout out to H.E.R for being simply amazing.

Favorite Songs of the Year

  1. Boo’d Up – Ella Mai
  2. Gonna Love me – Teyana Taylor
  3. As I Am – HER
  4. I’ll Take Yo man – City Girls
  5. Dedication – Nipsey Hussle
  6. Win – Jay Rock
  7. Sicko mode – Travis Scott feat Drake
  8. Nice for What – Drake
  9. I Like It – Cardi B
  10. Feel Like Summer – Childish Gambino
  11. Pick Yourself Up- Big K.R.I.T.
  12. Smile Bitch – Lil Duval

Overall, this was a great year for music. A bit overwhelming with all of the music coming out at such a rapid rate, but a great year.

    I agree about H.E.R. Hopefully she comes through in 2019!
