2017 was a very good year for rap music. We were reminded by vets like Jay-Z and Black Thought that they're still immortal, watched their successors, like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, prove they're here to stay, and saw up-and-comers like Kevin Abstract claim their seat at the table. This year's list of best rap verses features the young, the old, the new, the underground, and a guy that's known for making R&B, culminating in the 20 verses that stood out to us the most. We always pick a rap verse of the month, yet we felt like we needed to leave some of those out for superior bars. These are the 20 Best Rap Verses of 2017.
