Mach-Hommy, Benny The Butcher, & Boldy James; these are a few rappers in this style of rap that I am not the BIGGEST fan of but I appreciate them and get why people love them so much. I just can’t say the same for Westside Gunn.

Honestly, this entire album I liked only a few verses from Gunn. The rating for this album would be WAY lower if it wasn’t for the features. I just find Gunn to be so repetitive with his flows, and I honestly think his ear for beats could be way better. ... read more

Listen to this album. I don't really have my thoughts yet but just listen, I feel like this will get a lot of attention soon enough. Amazing writing and oh my the fucking vocals.

14 year old boy Pop-Punk!!!

The reedeemable qualities of this album are only there because every piece of this music was make in a huge room full of old people. That being said, there aren't many reedeemable qualities. Sometimes Huddy makes his voice work (only on two songs) but most of the time he sounds like a child and it is hilarious. This isn't an overly offensive album but it isn't fucking good by any means. It sucks that some of these riffs were just wasted on LIL HUDDY.

One of the most influential artists of our generation drops an impressive debut album.

Ever since 'Old Town Road' Lil Nas X has been an artist to look out for. I remember hyping this guy up when Old Town Road only had 2 million views, but to see this much growth is amazing. I will admit, the singles are the best songs on the album. But that doesn't change the fact that there isn't a single bad song here. I don't even think there is a medicore song here, Lil Nas just can't miss. While a lot of ... read more

Hey Mate,
Just wondering if you were able to contribute to a list by @CamDoesMusic and @truthfulreviews based upon your 10 favourite 90's albums. This would work through you messaging myself a list from 1 being the best and 10th being the 10th best album you have listened to from the 90's. If you are able to contribute with a quote summarising the particular album as well that would be awesome! Your information delivered to us will be used to create a list named "AOTY Users Favourite 90's Albums".

Thank You So Much, Have a Great Day :)

hey! i hate to do the whole "self-promo in shoutboxes" thing but i would like to recommend you an album ive made several months ago, its basically an extremely cursed plunderphonics/instrumental hip hop album thats just slightly over 30 minutes, and its by far my favorite piece of art ive ever made :) i would appreciate if it u gave it a listen and maybe rated it! :))

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list and I'd love to know which album has had the greatest influence on your current taste in music? If you want, I'd also appreciate it if you could say exactly how it's made you grow/learn more as a listener (don't worry, you don't have to do this part).

Thank you for reading and answering, if you do

I make simple reviews. I'm not really good at it but it's fun to do!

I run a dumb account with my friend on YouTube about music :) - LINK IS RIGHT THERE!

('*' next to a track in my reviews means it's my favorite)

Every project in my library is what I have on CD!
