    I woulda nominated Wayne… he’s still no where near 06-08 but he’s lightyears ahead of where he was last year… KRIT was a good one too

    • blackbeltbreeze

      wayne definitely stepped up this year…and KRIT on the strength of mt olympus alone.

    Relatively privileged teenagers identify with Childish Gambino. He’s not connecting with teenagers in the struggle across the world. He’s connecting with the privileged teenagers that Odd Future and Will Smith’s kids connect with. There is nothing wrong with their economic privilege, but we have to realize that America is a rich country and not the norm. The middle class kids across the globe may connect to their existential crisis and exploration, but the kids who are hustling…and I’m not talking about hustling drugs, don’t have the luxuries that these artists cater to. Before you come with a rebuttal, consider my point.
    Run the Jewels one was incredible, I haven’t checked out the second one. Happy for them, I should get around to it.

    • Mylo

      Ditto

    • Selorm Amuzu

      Yhh but if you look into their history, especially Tyler’s they were as broke as any kid hustling but instead of looking at the local hustlers and street niggas as a form of guidance, they went thru different routes the kind that many find nerdy and childish, privileged kids cater to them because their interest and approach is different meanwhile street kids don’t fuck with them because they don’t fit the typical “masculine” hood personas they wanna aspire to so they find them as prey some times. I think Gambino’s and Tyler’s success should be applauded due to the fact that they were successful being them.

      • Mylo

        Tyler wasn’t poor bruh… Believe me maybe not rich but I know for a fact he grew up in a decent neighborhood

        • Selorm Amuzu

          owned by his grandma whom he shared with his cousin and nephew whiles his mum moved to canada at 1 time, there is a video where he tells his come up, living in a decent neighbour doesn’t mean he had middle class money

  • yorapper

    The fact that I could actually listen to Childish Gambino’s album consistently and with each listen uncovered a new layer speaks volumes about his come up this year.

  • yorapper

    Nobody listens to Troy Ave.

  • yorapper

    It must be a geographic or age thing cause I don’t know anybody that listens to Run the Jewels.

    • el jim chapo guzman

      You ain’t never lie my nigga.

    • ALMIGHTY ESCO…THE BAMA KILLA

      u bamas know nuttn about real hip hop, run the jewels got some fire…u fk boys are lost

      • b r z a

        count me in bc I don’t listen to “Run the Jewels” either so I guess that makes me an official Bama!

        • ALMIGHTY ESCO…FK YOU BAMA’S!

          U WAS BORN A BAMA!!

    • Facts. LOL I’m gonna download it now though & see what the hoopla is about. Nobody checkin for Killer Mike in the 18-25yo demographic, only CNN/FOX is & that’s a fact. #TIMELESS

      • ThomasKWelker

        It’s worth it

    • Supa_Doopa_Ghost1

    • Ryuk918

      Okay, gotta ask, what DO you listen to?

  • Dafuq

    TL; dr

    Can someone give me a recap? I hayte these long ass videos.

    • Michael Ib bett

      Idk why I watched the first 5 mins tbh. Watching people talk about rap is quite boring to me these days, charlamagn didn’t say anything funny, and they just talked about a bunch od random rappers and albums from a to z

  • still good

    i think cyhi the prince or skooda chose def should be mentioned based on their projects this year alone!

  • Public Hairs

    My problem with YG as B. Dot’s choice is he focuses only on the radio and commercial side of things as his debate when we are not in an era where mainstream hip hop is properly representing the gamut of hip hop as a whole. Also, radio is no longer the main source of learning about new music as it has pretty much become what sounds like a payola playlist compliments of record execs.

    RTJ didn’t have to be commercial to get on FOX, CNN etc, they didn’t have to churn out forced radio hits for their acclaim. They’re getting acknowledged by simply doing them.

  • daffysci

    really didnt give that to yg?? wow

    • Skeeeeeeta

  • ImJus Sayin

    Why is the ALTV x Complex debate team all 30+? I’m mid 20’s. But it just seems a little odd everyone sitting down discussing these topics are old. It’s biased.

    • Los Da Don

      wow. I just said the same thing on Twitter….Not only that, all these dudes are all basically in the same region. At least have a couple people from the South and West coast up there.

  • cannon

    I mean i can see what b dot is saying…when toot it and boot it came out I thougnt of yg as a snap dance lafy taffy rapper but his recent album he brought out this year kinda took him out of that category, like I actually was amazed that he made that cd so i kinda take him serious now lol run the jewels were already dope and made great structured music so I wasn’t too surprised with there work because I already knew that they had it in them to make a better album..ya know?

  • LuckyP

    smh its not the artists that fuck the game up its these dickheads who whoever deems worthy of having a voice. FOH

    The sitting arrangement is awkward. everybody leaning off the bitch like its sucking them in.

  • tipp0183

    Wait who crowned Bobby Schmurda Rookie of the year… One hit wonder ass.

  • Yamzz

    Most improved=simple, nobody thought you were dope then this yr you come in with a smash project or couple hits. RTJ has always had their core and haven’t branched out too far. YG on the other hand everyone thought he was trash before the yr. then fcked around and made the toughest album of the yr. schoolboy q honorable mention.

  • b r z a

    and for the record Charlemagne, Troy Average is no where near the word dope lol

  • Capuccino

    guess it was just bad timing on the J. Cole release, bc after 5 rotations i can honestly say AOTY by far
