Favorite Hip-Hop Albums of 20-10

 Although, this may not be overly interesting to most, I thought that I would do another music post as it's late and I can not seem to sleep. Here are my favorite albums of 2010. I didn't get to hear everything this year so don't hate on my post if there is something missing, leave a comment and I'll try to check it out!

Nineteen Ninety Now- Celph Titled & Buckshot

Covered it in the last post. Celph takes on Buckshots unused beats from the 90s

I F*cking Hate Rappers- Packfm

This is another first for me. PackFM impressed me and shows doubters that not all talent is on a mainstream label. Although it may not be the most consistant album of the year, PackFM is able to demonstrate some techniqual aspects of rapping that is often overlooked in mainstream Hip-Hop. Not to bad for a guy that can't even get his own wikipedia page.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy- Kanye West


Not much can be said about this Album except WOW. Kanye West takes a different direction than he did on his last effort and surprisingly there is no autotune to be found. The complexity of the production and beats is proof alone that Kanye has grown and continues to grow as an artist. Check this out even if you are not a fan of Kanye, you might be one sooner than you think.

Distant Relatives- Nas & Damien Marley

The pairing up of Nas and Damien Marley is no surprise to many. There really isn't even too much to say. If you liked their past collaborations on their solo albums then this is the album for you. If you're not really into to either artists then stay away. I will however say that Damien Marley, in my opinion, stood out more to me.

T.I- No Mercy
Curren$y - Pilot Talk
Eminem- Recovery
The Roots- How I Got Over
Fat Joe - Tales From the Darkside Vol 1

I do have to say that I was disappointed with a more then few albums this year. Here's to 2011!


  1. I didn't listen to much hip hop from 2010, but yeah let's hope 2011 will bring a lot of good music! :)

  2. Ill have to check some of these albums out.
    I felt Recovery was hot on some tracks but weak in others. Distant relatives was pretty cool but nothing on nas' peaks, i completely agree Marley killed most tracks he was on.

  3. Always been on the fence about Kanye, he's got some good stuff but his attitude pissed me off sometimes.

  4. Don't really like rap, used to love eminem when i was younger but his new stuff just doesnt do it for me.

  5. I always do enjoy the cover art on these albums.

    ~showing my fellow bloggers some support.

  6. recovery was a nice album i think
    also thanks for the information. i didnt know most of these rappers

  7. Nineteen Ninety Now has a great album cover

  8. Nas and damian marley was imo one of the best albums of the year, top notch ;D

  9. recovery was good not my favorite but good

  10. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was a really great album!
