You’ve probably seen a “Your Top Songs of 2018” screenshot from Spotify pop up sporadically on your Instagram stories or Facebook. Though these are a bit exhausting and definitely not what you need to see from every man and his dog, Jay-Z has thrown his opinion into the mix with his line-up of the top rap songs of 2018. His comes via a different streaming platform; his subscription-based audio and video streaming platform called TIDAL which is somehow still going, but to be honest, we’re not sure how it is.
So here’s his list of the top 20 hip-hop songs of 2018, featuring up and coming artists such as Sheck Wes and Gunna alongside top charts locals such as Migos. You’ll also find Kanye West making an appearance alongside KIDS SEE GHOST co-member Kid Cudi for their joint effort on “Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2),” as well as on “Cops Shot The Kid” due to his production. Travis Scott and Drake make their own appearances before coming together for SICKO MODE.
It’s a list stacked with big names. Happy listening.
