"Bacc At It Again"
"Act a Fool"
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.

So, there's no better time than to look back on the last 51 weeks and reflect on the best music produced for and by the culture. Many of hip-hop's heavyweights took an off year from dropping full-length projects— Drake , J. His breakout record "Suge" set things on fire, and by the time he dropped Kirk in September, songs like "Bop" and "Intro" detonated.
