Top 20 Albums of 2011

 

2011 was a good year for rap music.  Was it a landmark year like ’88 or ’93? No, but this year was the first year is a while where we saw not one or two but a wave of new artists make names for themselves and doing it by going outside of the usual rap powers that be.  With that being said, here’s my top 20 Hip-Hop releases of the year along with my favorite track off each release.  enjoy.
