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.
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.
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
