My vote goes to A Written Testimony. Cannot overplay it.
Alfredo would be my choice but I’d be happy for either of those two to win. Nas 100% will win though. I’m fairly certain he’s never won a Grammy
should be Freddie
We the grimy and gritty
Made it to Grammy committee
Told we spit it too vicious and would never see victory
rtj4 shoulda got the nomination over jay elctronica
I think over Royce, Nas and whoever tf else that is but they definitely should’ve got a nom
Cap summed up why not, above in their own words. I get why Nas is there but Alfredo's the only one I think is a legit contender. A Written Testimony is really good but has way too much Jay-Z, yet w/o him he probably doesn't get the nomination. All IMO.
Freddie and Al had the best album but they won’t win
I think Jays involvement in AWT is overblown but at the same time, it doesn’t take away from the quality. That’s just a purist argument against Jay Elec. The best song on the album is Ezekiels Wheel and Jay doesn’t have a verse on it
For me, two of those albums make my top 15ish for the year and it’s Jay Elec and Alfredo. One of them has an argument for album of the year and that’s Gibbs and the chemist. Alfredo is far and away the best album up there. Griselda not receiving a nom is ridiculous but I guess you gotta expect that.
I think all that shit Budden was talking about was def overblown. I just don't like listening to Jay-Z. Had it been a different artist that I liked I would have loved the album.
Rocking some King Los on this very fine Wednesday
it’s wild how literally everything lil fame touches hypes me up
oh and gibbs 2020
the statik album is a nice easy listen. i feel like most of those i get hyped at the track list and let down after, but this one is solid on the first spin
Collabs really showed up. Killer Mike went hard.
Had to set my phone down to not get third degree burns on my hands.
Statik Selektah album is real solid after umpteen more listens
Mt Marci is on all services now and after one listen it’s still the same thing for me wrt Roc...
Guy is an absolutely legendary wordsmith but I just feel like he lacks personality and the ability to rap from his chest. His production skills farrr outshine his rapping for me. He’s a top 5 producer right now imo. Cooks and Q murder their features and I’m just a huge fan of Stove God
Gibbs, Conway, Benny and RTJ are really killing it on these end of the year best album lists. I think this is where Griselda will get the love they deserve after a fucking marvelous year of music.
Not that I really think it will end up mattering, but From King to a God and Burden of Proof weren't Grammy eligible since they were released too late. Anything released after September 1st is eligible for the Grammys in 2022. If any Griselda albums were to have a shot, those would be the two.
Coco about to be that song on the radio for the next 6 months
Also, some new lil baby today
Detroit over everybody
So excited for this.

Question for Black thought. What did the beat do to you?
Too good. Awesome verse from EL-P as well
Fahim and Phonte appear on that album as well
not new but one of my favs of 2020 that I don't think came up previously
Something seriously nostalgic about that
It’s in my personal top 5 albums of the year. I think I shared Friends earlier in the year. Dope beat.
In the theme of "albums you may have missed". I did.
I’ve tried really hard to get KA to click but I just can’t. Phenomenal wordsmith without a doubt tho and I’ve spun this album a hundred times
Conway mentioned on an IG live that his next project will be reject 3. Reject 2 is 100% without question, top to bottom perfection and the best project from the Griselda era imo and that’s a widely held opinion. The Machine has been pumping out quality shit since and if he’s labeling something the sequel to the most revered album of a revered era of music I think we are in for a treat
I get it. I love DOOM though so I'm used to weird shit going on in the background.
Ol' Fetty Wap has an album coming out tonight lol
Gonna be tough but think I’m gonna hold off on listening until I can do it properly tomorrow night
Album def starts with humming
Gets better as the acts progress, too trappy for my but that's my bad opinion
