If you're looking for good rap music, the first half of 2017 did not disappoint. Future alone, across two of his best projects to date, laced us with 34 new songs. Drake did his part too, dropping the 22-song More Life, which encompassed every sort of Drake we've ever seen. Kendrick Lamar, who currently holds the title for album of the year, ~only~ released 14 songs, but each could have made this list. And that's just rap. The following is a collection of the songs that have stuck with us, and likely will continue to, this year; it's the best songs of 2017, so far.
