"Best Hip Hop albums though first 6 months of 2020 "


          

My top 5 (in no order):

Boldy James - The Price of Tea in China (Alchemist)
Freddie Gibbs - Alfredo (Alchemist)
Stove God Cooks - Reasonable Drought (Roc Marci)
Armand Hammer - Shrines (multiple)
Jay Electronica - A Written Testimony (multiple)

Some other notable releases:
Shrapknel - Self Titled (elucid)
Conway - LULU (Alchemist)
Conway - No One Mourns the Wicked (Big Ghost Ltd)
Big Ghost Ltd - Carpe Noctem (Big Ghost Ltd)
Royce - Allegory - (Royce)
38 Spesh & Planet Asia - Trust the Chain (38 Spesh)
38 Spesh & elcamino - Martyrs Prayer (38 Spesh)

if not familiar with 38 Spesh , he’s a rapper & producer.
he’s a work horse.

honorable mentions:

Theophilus London - Bebey - 4.66
Tame Impala - The Slow Rush - 4.63

*really short run times

if i disregard scores and go off just memory, which ones ive played the most, my favorites from above would be:
Skyzoo - Milestones
Mac Miller - Circles
Run The Jewels - RTJ4
Theophilus London - Bebey

the music just hit me the most from those so far. there might be a couple of tracks bringing the score down (except for milestones).

"Stove God Cooks"


          

has album on the year so far, Reasonable Drought.
He’s floating on FIAAG2 too. Great look for him.
Hope more people check out Reasonable Drought after possibly discovering him on new WSG album.

I’m checking that out ASAP. He’s dope! I got the album he did with G Rap but I imagine this one will have better production overall. El Camino is nice too and they mesh well so I’m looking forward to that.

Speaking of 38...

Did Che Noir’s album come out yet?
