2021 has been one of the most exciting rap years in recent history. With a mix of high-profile releases from A-list rappers and quality underground releases, we saw a strong diversity in the albums dropped this year.

Cole, Eminem and Nas, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Tyler, the Creator – just to name a few.
