Best Hip Hop Albums of 2020 (Cril’s Picks)


This was honestly the most difficult "Best Albums of the year list" for me to compile because there was so much music I was checking for this year. The order from 1 thru 15 is pretty much a solid order but from 16 on it's not really a particular order. Hope this list is inspirational to you. My focus this year was hip hop releases that were either "creative or conscious" in their lyrical approach. Also keep in mind that there were over 90 dope albums/EPs in this creative and conscious category that I had to narrow down to get to these 27 listed


1. Jay Electronica - A Written Testimony

2. Homeboy Sandman - Don't Feed The Monster

3. Ka - Descendents of Cain
