There were many ways to make an album in 2018. Artists like Drake and Migos put together long, streaming-friendly projects that left little on the cutting room floor. Meanwhile, G.O.O.D. Music headed to Wyoming and experimented with a seven-song format that stripped each project down to its most necessary elements. Across the board, we heard stories about artists who tinkered with albums until the very last moment, turning in verses mere hours before files needed to be uploaded to streaming services.
No matter how the music was created, there sure was a lot of it. Somehow, the pace kept accelerating, and every Friday we were treated to more material than we knew what to do with. This was a memorable year for hungry newcomers and established veterans alike, and there were many more than 50 great releases. These are Complex’s picks for the best albums of 2018.

Everybody that works at complex just looks like a fucking loser😂😭. Shout out my nigga Beija she got the fuck outta there.
I really don’t understand the hype around travis’ album, and that Mo mamba song. I trued so hard to like it but it just didn’t happen. And why is no one talking about YG’s album either, it was so good.
Complex you mean best hip-hop albums of the year
If they dont talk about Nipsey Hussle's Victory Lap then IDC for their opinions. Bunch of fake "Hip-Hop" fans, hipster, follower, ass niggas who never lived the life but are Culture Vulture's and think they have an opinion that matters. TRIGGERED.
eternal atake would've been on here smh…
ASTROWORLD IS THE BEST OF 2018 BY FAR (IMO)
Stopped watching 2 minutes into video when they explained Drake's Scorpion is not in the top 10…..
Eminem kamikaze was one of the best albums 2018
