4. Daytona - Pusha T
5. Care For Me - Saba
6. What Happens When I Try To Relax - Open Mike Eagle
7. Room 25 - Noname
8. FM! - Vince Staples

If I eliminated self-described EPs these would join the list:

Still need to hear the JID and 21 Savage albums. Enjoyed all of your other eight to some degree.
