Inspiration: 2010 Hip-Hop

2010 was a very good year for hip-hop. I have a hard time time working without music. Most of it is hip-hop. These are the albums that stand out to me this past year. They inspire me as much as the pictures I post - in fact, I want you to hear a fresh rap track when you look at my work. Blam!

Roc Marciano - Marcberg. Tough New York rap. Real tough.

Snow (remix) ft. Sean Price:


Kanye West : My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The Legend crafts another classic.

Dark Fantasy:


The Roots: How I Got Over: The Roots are hip hop's greatest group, and Black Thought is top 5.

The Fire ft. John Legend:


Yelawolf: Trunk Musik 0-60. Favorite new dude. Tough, technical, Alabama skate rap.

I Wish (remix) ft. CyHi da Prince and Pill:


Celph Title and Buckwild: Nineteen Ninety Now. Buckwild gives Celph classics from the 90's to update. Pure spit.

Miss Those Days:


Nas and Damian Marley: Distant Relatives. World rap music. Nas' 2nd Verse on "Strong Will Continue" is the verse of the year.

Strong Will Continue:


Big Boi: Sir Lucious Left Foot, The Son of Chico Dusty. Your favorite rap nerd's favorite album.

General Patton:


The Left: Gas Mask. Traditional Detroit rap done very well.

Frozen ft. Kool G Rap


Big K.R.I.T. : K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. Southern smooth Mississippi rap.

Hometown Hero (remix) ft. Yelawolf
