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.
