The Kids Wear Crowns Album of the Year Show (featuring “Prolly” Drunk @Pattric)

Ron, Ryan, Aj and guest @Pattric talk about their favorite albums and the most trash albums of the year.

Jesus H. Christ, man, 2016 sucks doesn’t it? RIP Carrie Fisher. RIP Ricky Harris. RIP…wait…as I type this Carrie Fisher’s mom died too. WTF, man.

Anyway, let’s focus on what didn’t suck this year: The music. 2016 was a great year for music. Here at The Kids Wear Crowns, we put our lists together. Also, you, the reader, submitted your list as well. Before we show you the staff picks, let’s jump into the favorite albums of the readers of the blog.

First, the criteria. Everyone entered their top 10 favorite albums (top 5 minimum) into a form. I took the results of that form and tallied the vote. The added up the albums with the most mentions and also took into account where they were ranked.

  1. Beyonce – Lemonade
  2. Chance the Rapper – Coloring Book
  3. Anderson Paak – Malibu
  4. Kanye West – The Life of Pablo
  5. Schoolboy Q – The Blank Face LP
  6. Bruno Mars – 24K Magic
  7. Solange – A Seat at the Table
  8. Frank Ocean – Blonde
  9. NxWorries – Yes Lawd!
  10. Mac Miller – The Divine Feminine

Other albums to receive mentions:

  • DJ Khaled – Major Key
  • Isaiah Rashad – The Sun’s Tirade
  • Rihanna – Anti
  • D.R.A.M. – Big Baby DRAM
  • Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
  • 2 Chainz – Hibachi for Lunch

Other albums I’ve never heard of before but get your promo off bro I ain’t even mad:

  • Enigma – SZN
  • The Avalanches – Wildflower
  • The Radio Dept. – Running Out of Love

A few albums I have 0 interest in hearing all the way through:

  • Joe Budden – Rage and the Machine (sorry AJ)
  • 21 Savage – No Heart (PS, this nigga gone get yall asses shot trying to be “savage”)
  • Young Jeezy – Trap or Die 3
  • Meek Mill – DC4

Sidenote: Up until a week ago, nobody put Views on their list. I thought that was interesting.

Moving along…
