(AllHipHop Features) provided a twist on that concept by curating a list of the “Best Reviewed Hip Hop Albums.”

Just like in 2014 and 2015, Metacritic Scores (MS) were used to determine the highest rated Hip Hop releases of 2016. calculates the scores by giving weighted averages for reviews from leading print and online publications. Albums with an MS between 81-100 are labeled as receiving “universal acclaim.”

Of course, the pundits aren’t always right. Some of the most popular projects of ’16 didn’t make the cut. But this list does present a general consensus of the critics’ thoughts on the major Hip Hop projects around the time they hit the internet.

Do you agree with the choices? Do you think a particular album got snubbed? Check out AllHipHop’s “Best Reviewed Hip Hop Albums Of 2016″ and then share your own opinion in the comment section.
