Rap album of the year: 'Coloring Book' or 'We Got It from Here...'?
It's the end of the year! And throughout December, we're facing-off the best songs, albums, movies, TV shows, comic books, video games, sports, pro athletes and entertainers of 2016. The "Best of 2016" is chosen by a combination of popularity, impact, acclaim, rankings and/or amount sold. But ultimately, we want you to let us know who and what from 2016 won the year in each category.
Which acclaimed rap album is this year's best—"Coloring Book" or "We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service"?
And don't forget to check out these other end of year debates:
"Coloring book" is a lauded album (mixtape). And many felt Chance was snubbed for a Grammy nod in the Album of the Year category. Nonetheless, "Coloring Book" is nominated for Best Rap Album. The mixtape has been praised for perfectly blending gospel over Chance's rhymes.
A Tribe Called Quest made a highly-anticipated comeback in 2016, but unfortunately, it was months after Phife Dawg passed away. "We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service" was also lauded by critics, and the hip-hop group scored #1 album. Many publications rank the jazz rap album among 2016's best.
