    My knowledge of Hip Hop after about 1998 is minimal. It was only after hearing Young Thug last year that I got interested in newer stuff and I have been backtracking from there. So I’ll post this with the caveat that it is a top 10 by and for the rap non-fan.

    In no particular order:

    1017 Thug

    Yeezus

    Ds2

    Danny Brown- xxx

    Azealia Banks- Fantasea

    Narf- Sick

    Father- Who’s Gonna Get Fucked First

    Viper- Yo Side Thang & Main Thang Holdin’ Me

    Black Kray- Soulja Luv Rari World

    M.B.E- Have A Party

    [edit . 3 edits in as many days. 1017 replaced barter 6, Fantsea replaced earl sweatshirt earl and MBE replaced death grips- money store]

    rick ross - rich forever

    Feel bad not including MBDTF by Kanye but I've never been that into it. Keep seeing it getting praised though so i probably should revisit.

    chief keef - back from the dead 2 (the rapping isnt what you would call 'great' but hes got personality, and hes one of the most interesting producers around right now IMO, i wish he produced more)
    dj quik and kurupt - blaqkout (spacey, west coast funk rap)
    YG - my krazy life (basically a document of the mustard sound, and an update of traditional west coast rap)
    vince staples - summertime
    earl sweatshirt - earl (i like this and the vince staples one just as displays of brilliant, characterful rapping, even john cale likes earl)
    future - ds2 (never been that sold on future, but this is his best album i think, simply as hes not being that mopey, and and the beats are truly monstrous)
    telemachus - in the evening (this is a british producer, the songs with rappers on here arent great, but if you delete them, the album becomes an excellent modern trip hop-ish instrumental set)
    young thug - 1017 thug (this is still his best release IMO, just cos IMO its the only one where the production consistently matches what he does as a rapper)
    kanye - yeezus

    Um, no Kendrick chaps? Surely an oversight...

    Not got the energy to whittle a full list, but a few I'd include:

    Heems- Eat Pray Thug
    Big K.R.I.T.- Cadillactica
    Fat Trel- SDMG
    J Cole- Born Sinner

    I included 'O.D' because that's my favourite of the Kendrick projects I've heard, but realistically 'Good Kid Maad City', 'Section 80' and 'To Pimp a Butterfly' would all be in with a shout. He's made at least four highly cohesive, challenging and often beautiful LPs. Actually, counting 'Untitled/Unmastered', 5!

    Ah, missed that- scrolled right on by! Yeah, this really could be Top-Ten-Not-Made-By-Kdot. Couple more:

    Travis Porter- S.A.Q.
    Shabazz Palaces- Lese Majesty
    Freddie Gibbs/Madlib- Piņata (perhaps a hip/obvious choice, but probably my favourite of the lot)

    I should revisit Piņata. I like Madlib and I don't really like Freddie Gibbs much aside from 'Still Livin''. I mean, I think he's a very decent paper, but I am not grabbed by his voice all that much.
