I'll get right to the point and waste no time here, the AOTY Awards sheet with the winners can be found here:

This was a very fun project and I hope to improve upon anything I did wrong or anything I forgot to include next year. Thank you to everyone who participated, it was a joy to put together. Besides that, I'd also like to shamelessly plug my year-end lists.

I thought it would be pretty cool to do something similar based on what this website enjoys- that’s why I made the AOTY Grammys (The Album Of The Year Awards as I’m calling it). Nominees were picked based on a myriad of things, though the ... read more

What dictates how we qualify music? I think most people on this site can agree that experimental hip-hop in the vein of Death Grips is music. In spite of its untraditional sound that deviates from what the average musical listeners would consider music, it is music. Let’s take it a step further; What about free improvisation and avant-garde jazz that are just random notes of an instrument played on the spot?

Exactly what ‘JESUS IS KING’ should have been.

Oh boy, prepare yourself, because this is a long one. ‘Donda’ is scatterbrained, flawed, nonsensical at points, but ultimately, is also an endearing exploration of every part of Kanye’s wild mind along with a beautiful tribute to his mother. The rollout itself, though, feels just as interesting as the actual music. The album was accompanied by what’s almost become the norm for Kanye in recent years: an original, ... read more

Hey man i got a question for you. Do you maybe know what happened to the user @HIVE? I remember he usually rated and sometimes even reviewed a lot of the more abstract and underground rap releases. I even saw the comments he left under my reviews were taken down. Just wondering if you might know anything about that.
