Pusha T Daytona was my 2018 Album of the Year!
Pusha T – DAYTONA (2018)
Released: 25 May 2018
Although I might rank the ordering of my Best of 2018 top 10-15 differently today in 2021, the albums in the rank would likely be the same.
2018 was a red hot year for Pusha T and Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music. Pusha T was fresh off a flawless lyrical victory over Drake and Kanye West was generating lots of excitement with his 7-song album/EP series at G.O.O.D Music.
