By HHL Editors

For whatever reason, music publications like listing their top albums of the year weeks before the year ends.

(Sorry, J. Cole.)

Vast, urban website Complex has just released their top 50 albums of 2016.

But it's good for some discussion.

Here's their top fifteen albums, and you can check out all 50 and the explanations here.

15. Drake Views  14. Anderson .Paak, Malibu 13. Young Thug, Jeffery 12. Danny Brown Atrocity Exhibition
