I have to say it one last time before the year is through... RIP J DILLA.
Hopefully everyone had a good holiday weekend, and hopefully all of you got whatever it was you wanted and got to spend some quality time with the fam-a-lam. Since we have one short-ass week left in 2006, we got some quick biz-nass to take care of to wrap up this year.
Weâ€™re going to get today cracking with my list for the top ten hip hop albums of 2006. This will be followed up in tomorrowâ€™s blog by my list for the top ten West Coast hip hop albums for they year, so if you donâ€™t see something in todayâ€™s list, donâ€™t get your panties in a bunch. As a matter fact, these lists are just a reflection of my taste and not anyone elseâ€™s, so it doesnâ€™t really matter what you think should or shouldnâ€™t be on my list.
If the comments section ends up working again at any point today, feel free to post your top ten lists as well; Iâ€™m interested in seeing what they look like.
Here they are, in no particular order: (edit: for some inexplicable reason, I thought I already had the Clipse album down and forgot to get it in there, so the Gnarls Barkley album had to go)
E-40 - My Ghetto Report Card
Snoop Dogg - Tha Blue Carpet Treatment
Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor
J Dilla - Donuts
Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury
Young Jeezy - The Inspiration
Oh No - Exodus Into Unheard Rythms
Ghostface - Fishscale
Mobb Deep - Blood Money
The Jacka, AP 9 and Husalah - Mob Trial
