The Carters musically rekindled.  Ariana spilled the tea in her exes.  Pusha-T took a giant dump on Drake and Drake rejuvenated one of Lauryn Hill’s most beloved songs. 2018 was a wild year for music; the year female artists fearlessly pronounced the word “pussy” with absolute power and the long-awaited albums of Lil Wayne and Nas released into the open mouths of rap fiends.  Here are some of my favorites of the year.
