Congratulations to Roc Marciano for winning UGHH.com's 2017 Hip Hop Album of the Year. Based on the votes, Roc Marciano won by a large margin.



For anyone interested, the results were calculated based on each user's ranked vote. If a voter put Roc Marciano as number one, it'd get five points, if they put Hus Kingpin as their second place, it'd get four points, etc., if they put Kendrick Lamar as their fifth place, it'd get one point. This is how all the results were made for each round this year.

Based on this calculation, Roc Marciano got 71 points. What was unique about this year's vote was the fact that we had a three-way tie for second place.

Here's the top ten:

1. Roc Marciano - Rosebudd’s Revenge - 71
2. Apollo Brown & Planet Asia - Anchoives - 46 (TIED)
2. Hus Kingpin & Big Ghost Ltd. - Cocaine Beach - 46 (TIED)
2. Meyhem Lauren & DJ Muggs - Gems From The Equinox - 46 (TIED)
5. Kendrick Lamar - DAMN. - 42
6. The Doppelgangaz - Dopp Hopp - 39
7. Sean Price - Imperious Rex - 33
8. Jonwayne - Rap Album Two - 31
9. Heavy Metal Kings - Black God White Devil - 30
10. CunninLynguists - Rose Azura Njano - 29



Here are the results from the preliminary rounds:

Round 1:


Roc Marciano - Rosebudd’s Revenge - 88
Daniel Son & Giallo Point - Remo Gaggi - 35
Mach-Hommy - Dumpmeister - 33
CunninLynguists - Rose Azura Njano - 32
Open Mike Eagle - Brick Body Kids Still Daydream - 32
OH NO & Tristate - 3 Dimensional Prescriptions - 24

Round 2:

Kendrick Lamar - DAMN. - 68
Apollo Brown & Planet Asia - Anchoives - 50
Billy Woods - Known Unknowns - 46
Jonwayne - Rap Album Two - 38
THA GOD FAHIM - Tha Dark Shogunn Saga Vol 2 - 38
Willie The Kid & Vdon - Deutsche Marks - 33

Round 3:

Meyhem Lauren & DJ Muggs - Gems From The Equinox - 68
The Doppelgangaz - Dopp Hopp - 52
Mach-Hommy - HBO - 32
Armand Hammer - Rome - 29
Recognize Ali & Giallo Point - Back 2 Mecca - 28
Warporn - Warporn Industries - 27

Round 4:

Heavy Metal Kings - Black God White Devil - 47
Hus Kingpin & Big Ghost Ltd. - Cocaine Beach - 42
Sean Price - Imperious Rex - 38
Brother Ali - All The Beauty In This Whole Life - 35

NOTE: the only vote i didn't count in the final round was sp90s, because, for reasons i don't know, he was just copy and pasting other people's vote in every round, including the final round, rather than giving a real vote of his own.

the top 10 is pretty much what i would have expected based on what albums actually got talked about on here. i didn't think anchovies would be that high though. its interesting how much of a difference in votes there can be between number 1 and number 10. there's a 42 vote difference here, and in 2015 it was 56 between yen lo and tetsuo.

WJ - we'll get em next time, maybe it will be AOTY this year

i considered recounting the vote to confirm the tie, but figured it wasn't worth the effort, since the result was for second place. if it had been a tie for first place, i would have recounted (and have in past years, when first place was close).

A lot of great albums this year guys and remember, never stop listing! Listing music is what keeps everyone striving for perfection. As Jay-Z once said “do you fools list music or do you just skim through it?”

On that list the only aoty is Meyhem&Muggs for me... I listened to Rosebudd's but I didn't like it. First time.
Maybe there will be second time.

And the only record I'm interested is Cocaine Beach...really wanna know it's that good to share second place with my aoty....I wound never put Anchoives in a top10, never!
Of course I'm familiar with Imperious Rex, I don't know the rest of the list and I don't know if I want to get to know them...

And, good work 88

fantastic album....

while it didn't live up to reloaded for me, it's definitely deserving. the more I look at it as something entirely different the more I like it. roc went for a more raw, street feel here and he captured it perfectly (while reloaded sounds a bit more polished).

killin time, Burkina faso, and marksmen is a 3 track spread that just cant be fucked with

nightrider, sorry to disagree (since you a good poaster) but anchovies is 1000 times better than cocaine beach. while the production on CB is dope, the lyrics leave something to be desired. I have to agree with Wicked on the whisper rap. It's probably the worst fad in hip hop the last 10 years (with the exception of artists that sound identical to a 90's artist).

on the other hand, anchovies is a musical masterpiece. the lyrics carry the entire album - clear, concise and at mixing levels I can hear without turning the volume up to levels I never use (which is the case with CB).

88, thanks for all your work on these threads. This is a great source for me to see some of the albums I have missed during the year. When Days With Dr Yen Lo won that got me to check out KA and he's one of my favorite rappers now.

^yeah not a bad top 10 but a bunch of superior albums obviously were slept on this year. its really ughh's top 10 (out of the limited amount of albums half the posters heard.) lol not being elitist but many even said they didnt hear much. theres more to life.

glad a raw, dusty album won anyhow. was worried kendrick was gonna take it. not that he isnt talented- to each there own.

Congrats on my personal AOTY as well. Think this is the first time that actually ended up being the forums AOTY. When it initially dropped i was lukewarm about it due to some of the mixing and mastering. But more i listened to it over time i stood above all the other albums this year for me. Tracks 3 through 10 rival any 8 track run from any album in 2017. Marksman was my personal favorite track from last year. I dope 2018 not only brings the Roc/Muggs album but also Rosebudd's Part 2 and Metal Clergy.

i really don't get the hype for metal clergy. i'm not saying i don't understand why people are excited about its potential. what i mean here is i don't understand why people keep expecting it to happen sooner than later. have either roc or ka mentioned it at all recently?

in my mind, if it happens, it'll be the best thing ever. but i'm not really thinking about it or anticipating it, because i don't really get the impression that they are either. if it happens, it happens. if it doesn't, then these guys will put out the aoty's individually.

separately though, ka was quiet in 2017, so hopefully he's got something incredible in the works, like another collabo with preservation. even though i like all of ka's albums, the one with preservation was way more consistent, imo. here's hoping they work on an album together again some day.

2018 was a year of more mature music.

A lot of Jack Johnsen, some random sean P days, but mostly the gawd John Mayer. Been listening to a lot of his shit lately. new album was better than expected
