I am disappointed in myself for not adding Without Warning to my list of the best albums of 2017. I have been listening to this 21 Savage and Offset collaborative album constantly and really enjoyed the total aesthetic that the rappers and producer Metro Boomin created.

J.I.D. is a rapper from Atlanta that has seemed to find a way to branch out from his peers from the same area. He is signed to J.
