I am trying to determine, in my own opinion, what the best rap cd of 2010 has been.
I applied a few rules, no eps, no live discs, only 1 entry per artist.
It is a huge undertaking if I am to review every rap album, so I am being sort of selective.
I started with Strange and Psychopathic,other underground rappers, then more mainstream rappers.
But I dont care for Drake, Wayne, etc. But in order to be impartial I will give their releases a listen.
Here is the list I have made.
Dinner and a Movie - Brotha Lynch Hung
Gates Mixed Plate - Tech
Shock Treatment - Krizz Kaliko
Raw & UnKutt - Kutt Kalhoun
Automatic - Cognito
Heartbroken & Homicidal - Twiztid
Gang Rags - Blaze ya Dead Homie
South of Hell - Boondox
Medicine Bag - Anybody Killa
Suspended Animation - Esham
Xerxes The God King - King Gordy
Raw - Hopsin
Die - Necro
mc chris goes to hell - mc chris
FREE - Irv the Phenom
Recovery - Eminem
Battle of the Sexes - Ludacris
The Perfect Storm - Twista
Shlumpulicious the Jester - First Degree the DE
Uni5 - Bone Thugs and Harmony
Plastic Beach - Gorillaz
Truth Rising - hed PE
Flockavelli - Wacka Flocka Flame
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West
Thank Me Later - Drake
I think Kanye and Drake should be considered R&B, and Im looking for best Rap disc.
But Ill check em out, just for comparison. And even though they are also metal, I added Hed pe.
What I want to do is rate every album 1-10 and arrange them in the top 5.
I havent listened to them all extensively yet, but I do have a top 5 so far.
If you want to join in, just bump each album at least once and try to be objective.
If you have any albums to add to the list feel free to suggest them.
