Hip-hop has been getting a bad rap of late, with some saying the quality of rhyme has dropped off in recent years. Sure, the times have changed since hip-hop’s golden era, but let’s not focus on the artist and lyrics here. Instead, let's focus on the brains behind the music.
We can’t let hip-hop take all the accolades here, though. That's why we’ve also included the finest trap, grime and R&B producers to have made a mark on 2018, so get to it and start voting!
