Best album of 2017 so far: 'DAMN' or '4:44'?

Fans have to pay for Tidal in order to gain access to Hov's new LP, but according to listeners, it's worth it. In the first five days, "4:44" sold more than 1 million units. "DAMN" also had huge sales in its first week, debuting atop the Billboard 200. Some of Kendrick's army will even argue "DAMN" is his magnum opus over "To Pimp A Butterfly." Which is the best album this year so far?

Kendrick released his highly praised follow up of "To Pimp A Butterfly" earlier this week. "DAMN" topped the Billboard 200. The LP is being called one of Kendrick's best works if not the best album this year so far. Below are some notable lyrics to his album's lead single and the #1 pop hit—"HUMBLE," per Genius.

🎤Ayy, I remember syrup sandwiches and crime allowances
Finesse a nigga with some counterfeits, but now I’m countin' this
Parmesan where my accountant lives; in fact, I'm downin’ this
D'USSÉ with my boo bae tastes like Kool-Aid for the analysts🎤

"4:44" is being regarded as Jay-Z's best album in years! The album is already ranked high up there with Jay's best: "The Blueprint," "American Gangster" and "Reasonable Doubt." Jay Z confirms his infidelities and cheating on Beyoncé on his most personal masterpiece yet. Below are some significant lyrics to the album's most talked about and socially conscious hit—"The Story of OJ," also thanks to Genius

🎶Financial freedom my only hope
Fuck livin' rich and dyin' broke
I bought some artwork for 1 million
2 years later, that shit worth 2 million
Few years later, that shit worth 8 million
I can't wait to give this shit to my children🎶
