Actually take out NO LOVE DEEP WEB completely, that band is more than hip hop and as a consequence it just wasn’t a top “hip hop” album this year. Looking through the list again I feel like a lot of these are fillers.
Some albums should switch places. Death Grip’s Money Store was much more complete than NO LOVE DEEP WEB; Chief Keef and Meek Mill should be waaaay lower. They were not *that* good aside from their hit songs. I really think that Jay Rock’s Follow Me Home should be on this list somewhere. Also as others have said, Captain Murphy is a legend and Aesop Rock’s album was nothing to shake a stick at.
