Hip Hop Dependency: Best Albums Of 2018

Well, here we are!   Our Top 10 albums from 2018.   I literally listened to hundreds of projects this year so giving you a top ten was no easy task considering not only the number of albums but also the quality.  And these lists are always prone to spark debate and conversation, but that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?  I simply wanted to shine a light on my favorite joints this year and in part give my definitive salute as a fan to these artists and their body of work.   Here we go…Enjoy!!

Single You Out: Grime Lords – Shyne (ft. Milano Constatine x Recognize Ali)

I was just asking about this project the other day and it appears that the Grime Lords are dropping Wimbledon Dons, on October 10th so we are just a few days away from this goodness.   Everything I have heard from Born Unique and Pete Twist has been absolute fire and the track Shyne, featuring Milano Constatine and Recognize Ali is exactly that…fiya!    The cut has some tough bars, which you undoubtedly expect with this line up and Twist can certainly lace the bangers.  Make no mistake about it, when this project drops, it’s going to drop heavy!

Grime Lords – Violent Violins (ft. Born Unique) (Prod. by Pete Twist)

First off, Born Unique and producer Pete Twist ARE Grime Lords.  Secondly, I have heard several of their collaborations in the past and they ALWAYS create dope bangers that hit eardrums heavy and Violent Violins is no different.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Unique and Twist are uniting for a Grime Lords album, that is said to be due out soon and is bound to be one of the toughest releases of the year with a slew of dope guest spots.   Stay tuned for that.
