    This year, and decade, is finally over and it has been a great one, especially for hip-hop. Because I find it impossible to make a definitive ranking of these albums, I created a point system to determine rank, based on two stats: (1) total # of plays, and (2) average # plays per track (# of plays / # of tracks). I ranked every album based on these two stats and assigned points based on ranking in each category, added them together and ranked them based on their final score.

    ie:
    Chris Cornell Scream ranked 1st in plays (262) and 4th in average plays (14.56). Therefore, the formula used to calculate points for this album was (101-2) + (101-4) = 196.

    This isn't a list of the best albums, but of my favorite albums. The ranking is sorted by plays and moderated by the # of tracks in each album. This compensates for greater # of plays for albums with more tracks (ie: B.o.B vs Bobby Ray [22], Mixtape Messiah 7 [26], etc.). So, here they are...
