The Top Albums of 2018

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.

  1. X fans where y'all at we gotta talk about this has gone too far. I just read top 100 albums of 2018 on snapchat and x was not on it like wtf. Fuck you complex damn x should be in top 10. Y'all better go fix your shit before you go bankrupt

  2. Top 10 for me in no particular order are:
    Nipsey Hussle – Victory Lap
    Pusha T – Daytona
    Meek Mill – Championships
    Mac Miller – Swimming
    Travis Scott – Astroworld
    Trippie Redd – ALLTY 3
    Playboi Carti – Die Lit
    Jay Rock – Redemption
    Flatbush Zombies – Vacation in Hell
    Smino – Noir

    Honorable mentions:
    Ronny J – OMGRONNY
    Gunna – Drip Season 3
    Metro Boomin – Not All Heroes Wear Capes
    Key – 777

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
