before people complain-its not redundant! interested to see what peoples fav projects are and why they like them and what makes a album great to people. the more depth about why you like the emcee's work and the production etc the better. include as many albums as you like.

for me after recently re listening to my top 10 and really paying attention and thinking about it my top 3 for 2017 is:

#1-Prodigal Sunn- The Spark:

Quality and quantity! hard to do. 17 dope full tracks and nothing bad to say about any of them.a couple mediocre beats maybe but dosnt hurt those songs. The production is well done and well rounded. The beats dont get boring as their far from being all the same. Its a really well recorded and mixed album but what more impressive is its rawness dosnt get lost in the pro tools/sleak high end sounding mix. many faster tempo tracks keep it intense and hype but a bunch of more chill ones too. very soulful in places with the samples and hooks but not too much soul that its feels emotionally bogged down.serious guest emcee line up helps keep it fresh like Killah Priest (2 tracks),Ghostface,masta killa, twin gambino, dom pachino etc. P Sunn really holds it down lovely -drops a few different styles,comes with lots of knowledge, realistic subject matter that never get negative really, even sings on a couple hooks. he comes with flow, intensity,above average lyrics and very solid delivery.sounds passionate and inspired the whole time. album has mad replay value to me.
The most criminally slept on album of 2017 imo.

2-Nolan the ninja- yen
3-Oh No & Tristate- 3 dimensional prescription

^i'll follow up on those later.

heavy metal kings cuz it just took me by surprise as well as took me back but they updated the sound alot from the first one. adding goretex to half the tracks wasnt shabby but i really thought bill and paz shined and the beats were almost all good.

rock----rockness a.p.(after price) man this one of the albums i was waitiong for the most, rocks voice, flow, style and taste in beats are so muthafucking original, he brought in my humble opinion easily the best lp the of the last 3 or 4 years, if i had to define this album in a couple of would be classic and original

2- Nolan the ninja- YEN

similar in many ways to "the spark". quality and quantity with 16 full tracks and have issues with 1 of them. Hard ass drums and nice rhodes keys etc type soul samples all over it. a couple 2 beats per track songs also is always nice.dope guest emcees also. also a good mix of more faster tempo tracks and more chill ones. Nolan changes his style up on a few tracks which shows his versatility and the subject matter is decent throughout- never getting negative or unrealistic really.his vocal intensity may be an aquired taste for some but makes for a stimulating and energetic barrage of inspired vocals. lyrics are nice but the thing i like best about his rhymes style is how he deviates from predictable rhyme schemes-makes for a more stimulating listen.

3- Oh No & Tri-State- 3 dimensional prescriptions:

some of the best beats of the year- oh no comes as he usually does with some crazy samples, the creativity with programming/chops,hard enough drums but i love that a bunch of tracks have a deep 808 bass that fits in well with the songs. shit bumps. lots of variation in beat styles helps. Tri-state is emcee of the year for me (based on this album and his appearances on Planet Asias-dirty Planet, Killer bens-summer of vince, The Alchemists-Good book 2 and Planet at apollo Browns-Anchovies and Dirty Diggs-petty tendergrass albums). His voice, wordplay, rhymes schemes are so elevated and as far as i'm concerned he's easily a top 3 current emcee right now. Album has a seriously ill guest emcee line up and lots of replay value also. were talking the best emcee performance on a 2017 album imo with some of the best beats!

^thanks felipe

i had to make this cause theres nothing end of the year like this yet-asking people to go into a bit of depth (not really) about why they like it. i'm sick of always hearing people just say: its dope, nice drums, his lyrics are on point etc and adding no examples, specifics or explanation at all. nothing wrong with trying to spark a more intelligent discussion about rap. dont shoot!

^you got me partridge. Gentle giant's- "octopus" was up there for me.lol

my semantics were weak. i should have said: your top rap album released in 2017 and not recorded further back then x-amount of years ago. no shelved pudgee albums from the 90's either!

Nothing stood out above the rest like Flygod did last year.

Either the Roc, Dopp, or Hus.

I was surprised at the M-Dot until i realized it dropped in like January or February which gave it a sales advantage over say an album that dropped the last quarter of the year.

so many more good people dropped stuff this yr but i liked last yr way better. and dopp hopp almost made my number 2 over packs but i gotta give it to droog for being very traditional yet sooo fucking non traditional in his beat choice. super original. dopp has taken high spots yrs previous so i gave the edge to droog.


the jonwayne was so honest and humble compared to his previous work and attitude. dude thought he was hot shit for signing to stones throw wen he debuted and completely fucked it up, i look at rap album two as his new first album.
warporn was just insanity and totally took me by surprise. everlast is nasty i dont care wat neone says. jacken is also super. and divine styler getting shine was nice.

that sparkmaster tape was good but each project the amount of songs i like go less and less.
the has lo was just super original and had some awesome beats.



jazz spastiks and mello soul black was just solid throwback rap that i appreciated more than alot of the music jazz spastiks have made. they need rappers, cuz ther instros are kinda boring.


sean price rip was just another one that was solid front to back. very hard rhyming and i dug alot of the beats even tho they were typical of a sean p project.


and that danny watts is dope but prolly something ill never peep again but maybe once.

^nice and well said.

i love the midnight method album. fun, positive vibes and they flow on there! just real rap with no negativity and ill beats. only issue that kept it off my top 10 was that they used 5 old beats that were released as instrumentals a couple years back. maybe it dosnt matter. either way the album is great.

i might have picked big krit or armand hammer if they had come out earlier in the year and i had more time to really sit with them, but right now i gotta go with who told you to think by milo. this album dropped back in august and i've probably listened to it more than anything else this year. i think he really came into his own on this one and "found his sound". i can throw this album on whenever and let it play from start to finish, especially since it's only about 40 minutes long and most of the tracks are under 3 minutes long.

he sounds more confident than ever, but the braggadocio (which milo wasn't ever really known for in the past) is balanced by honest introspection and humor. i think lyrically this is one of milo's strongest projects, there are so many memorable lines on here and he toned it down with the literary/philosophy references and went for a more direct approach. from what i understand he recorded this album in a day, with almost every verse being done in one take. that combined with the different vocal effects he uses really gives the album this natural, organic feeling of a live performance imo.

i also love the jazzy downtempo production on here. the beats all stand out and are varied enough but still have a similar vibe which helps create and maintain this cloudy, ethereal atmosphere that makes this album great for late night listening. i don't think there's a weak feature either, the tracks seem to be built around them instead of milo. elucid and self jupiter's verses are two of my favorites from this year, youngman is equal parts obnoxious and hilarious on his track, and busdriver comes with and impressive verse that was apparently improvised on the spot. there's even a posse cut on here.

i honestly don't have any complaints, the only track that stands out as being slightly weaker than the rest is note to mrs but even then i understand it's purpose. overall it's a really cohesive and complete album to me that doesn't sound like it's trying to be anything more than what it is, with a ton of replay value. i think it's one of the best projects he's put out so far, maybe the best. he just released a new scallops hotel project which i'll probably listen to in a little while, but i'm definitely looking forward to his next project as milo and especially that nostrum grocers collab with elucid.

the milo album is great. like i mentioned before its just a bit too subdued, lower tempo and melancholy for me but that has nothing to do with the artistic aspects of the album.

Pretty much love everything about this. Lyrically nobody's seeing Roc on the mic and beatwise shit is just my type of music. Dusty eastcoast shit.

if I was able to say any album, it would probably be emancipator's "baralku"....just a phenomenal record with a great variety of sounds and moods. it's an album I could play at any time and always feel something different from the music within...truly an amazing record.

but if we're talking strictly hip-hop, then I would probably say hus kingpin - cocaine beach....front to back the best hip-hop album I heard this year. the beats all knock and hus held his own on the mic (although sometimes I wish he would get more introspective with his shit - like on hnic).

so don't include HBO on your list then, but being so insistent about other people not having it on their lists is just kind of pointless imo. it happens damn near every single time the album is mentioned on here lol. HBO is an album that only 187 people were able to hear legally last year. it's on my personal list for 2017 but i didn't mention that in the album nomination thread because i knew it would cause an argument.

it's like how split, raw, colossal, personal shopper, and lost city of z are on a lot of top 2017 movie lists even though they had limited showings or were at film festivals in 2016.

btw 88, what are some underrated films from this year that i should check out? you see like you'd be the person to ask. i've watched a bunch over the last few weeks: wind river, good time, lady bird, mother!, i don't feel at home in this world anymore, super dark times, sleep has her house, it comes at night, ingrid goes west, brigsby bear, the killing of a sacred deer, the big sick, logan lucky, brawl in cell block 99, atomic blonde, a ghost story, life, okja...

i think i've seen most of the big ones that i would actually enjoy, but is there anything else i'm missing? i want to see three billboards outside ebbing missouri, i've heard great things about that film.

man, the only people that seem to be mad about it are the ones that feel the need to say that its a 2016 album every single time its mentioned in one these threads lol. i personally don't care if someone puts it on a 2016 list or on a 2017 list.

i thought the cyhi album was decent overall but way too long and kinda inconsistent. there's really no reason why almost every track on the album should be over 4 minutes long. i wouldn't say the albums bad but i'd take black hystori project over it any day.

i really disliked 3 billboards, but others enjoyed it. sam rockwell's character and the things around him in the film are a bit of a mess.

films you didn't mention that are worth seeing: shape of water, call me by your name, columbus, mudbound, jim & andy, the meyerowitz stories, little hours, marjorie prime.

other than that, you've got most of the worthwhile stuff down already. alias grace was a very worthwhile miniseries. a lot of people liked the film, the villainesse, but i really didn't.

kind of a shit year for movies, aside from a few gems. good time is maybe my foty.

good time, lost city of z, lady bird, shape of water, the big sick, and last jedi are within my top ten. but i'm holding out for phantom thread, before i put in any effort for my list.

i've seen people mentioned all of those a bunch, aside from little hours, the square, and marjorie prime i think. also i don't think i've heard of the villainess, i'll look into that.

lady bird surprised me, i figured it would be a typical teenage coming-of-age film but in some ways it avoided some of those tropes found in these movies, like the airport scene towards the end. it didn't blow me away but i liked it a lot more than i expected to.

the big sick was cool, my only issue is just that i didnt find it to be very funny and i was expected it to be more of a comedy than it actually was.

i've actually heard a lot of mixed opinions about the shape of water. a few people that have similar taste as me said it was complete shit, and others seemed to really enjoy it. i'll have to wait and see for myself.

my favorites from this year were

blade runner 2049
get out
logan
split
colossal
it
the void
good time
the killing of sacred deer
thor ragnarok

haven't seen star wars or the disaster artist yet. overall i thought it was a pretty good year for movies, but what do i know? i'm not really a film buff.

disaster artist is terrible. you know how it's lame to explain a joke? well this movie is the equivalent of james franco explaining a joke for two hours.

also, there's something really uncool to me about trying to commercialize and demystify a cult classic.

lol i figured as much, i also never really liked james franco much in the first place.

i agree though, the room isn't just a cult classic but what is basically a meme movie. not really sure what the point of the disaster artist is but i keep seeing people praise it for some reason so i'm still kind of curious.

go see florida project, because it's god damn beautiful.

also, kedi was a dope (although, maybe a bit too long for its subject matter) documentary about all the cats that live in istanbul.
