Top 10 Albums from 2010

In 2009, we gave you our top 9 albums, so its only fitting that we give you the top 10 from 2010.  However, this list will include a slight twist.  Instead of compromising and having 1 list, both G and I decided to provide our list independent of one another.  Although I couldn’t argue with Raekwon receiving last year’s top honor, I felt that Hov had the best effort from ’09 with the BP3. 

2010 provided us with an increase in dope albums and a decrease in corny sing along (for ring tone only) songs.  In 2010, the internet was a gift and a curse.  A gift in the sense that the record labels aren’t controlling the music as much and a curse due to the fact that anybody who gets on a beat and has a camera in their face now feels that they are a “rapper.” (See 50 Tyson and everyone else on Worldstarhiphop.com) Nevertheless, through all of the fog and bs, we were able to give you the year’s best.   

2010 Top 10 (List 1)                                              

1.) The Roots “How I Got Over”
