5. Future, “Mask Off”

Mask Off is a ode to Future’s drug collaboration and the lyrics are catchy as well. It’s the type of song that you can’t get out of your head. Future is one of rap’s most underappreciated lyricists and what he accomplishes in that line is what separates him from other rappers.

4. Kendrick Lamar, “DNA”

When Kendrick dropped his 2017 album “DAMN” DNA hit like a hammer with it’s funky bass- heavy beat with a non-stop onslaught of introspective bars.

3.Cardi B, “Bodak Yellow”

“Bodak Yellow” shattered everyone’s expectations, To solidify Cardi’s smoldering run, she made it first ever Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 with “Bodak Yellow” placing her in great position, as she became the first woman since Lauryn Hill in 1998 to have a solo rap single top the Hot 100. Which is amazing.

2. Migos feat. Lil Uzi Vert, “Bad and Boujee”

“Bad and Boujee” warmed up the party scene. With Metro Boomin, Migos sprinkled a lot of lines like “Raindrop, droptop,” to make the track a fun. The Atlanta trio even invited Lil Uzi Vert on the Boomin-produced track, making the record a star-studded affair.

1. Lil Uzi Vert, “XO TOUR Llif3”

At the beginning of 2017, Lil Uzi Vert was clearly among the most promising young rappers around. But few could have predicted that Uzi would deliver the type of song, in “XO TOUR Llif3,”With it’s catchy lyrics, “XO Tour Llif3” managed to capture the definition of the youth in a way that few have come close to over the past few years.
