Which Of These Albums Deserves To Compete For Best Of 2018? You Decide.

Earlier today, Ambrosia For Heads announced our picks for the 15 Best Albums Of 2018. As we did last year, we are having you decide which one of these albums (or any one that we missed) is the album of the year, based on your votes in an NCAA-style tournament in which the albums compete head to head. The tournament will take place throughout December, sparking exciting discussion and hopefully getting people to revisit some outstanding works within a great year of music.

In the coming days, we will pit the records against one another, battle style, and give you the opportunity to vote. The AFH staff has chosen 15 albums that it believes represent the best Hip-Hop of 2018. Inevitably, we’ve left off some LPs that you think deserve to be included, so, before launching the tournament, we’re opening with a wildcard round where voters can determine the album they think most deserves a spot on the list. We’ve offered some suggested options for ease of voting, but there also is a write-in option, so literally any 2018 album that is worthwhile will have a shot. We’ve listed the 15 releases that are already included on our list (beneath the ballot), so no need to vote on those. Voting will go until 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday, December 5. The winning album will be added in the first round of the tournament which also launches tomorrow.
