2017 is a wrap. A new president is in office, sports were played, new movies like Star Wars and Justice League came out, Cardi B ruled the year and you lived to see another New Year’s eve.


Many folks are paying homage to their 2017 by creating their Top 9 Instagram moments. As you can see, I posted mine above. Shameless plug my IG is: @scoop_b

FOLLOW A BROTHA! I enjoy long walks on the beach, Inka Cola and more. 

But, I digress.

For those who have not tried the Best Nine Craze yet: don’t miss out on all of the fun!

According to Thrillist’s Joe McGauley, to throw together your own personal “Best 9 of 2017” grid, you should visit, on your phone.

Once there, you’ll plug in your Instagram handle. From there, the site will scan your feed to locate the nine most-liked posts from the year and arrange them in chronological order in a grid image.

Check out one of my faves Top 9s with TNT sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude:
