• Top 10 Most Anticipated Hip-Hop Albums of 2011

    9 Feb 2011, 3:20

    10. Young Jeezy- Thug Motivation 103 (TBA)
    Who knows when/if this shit is gonna come out this year. And given the wait we've had for this album, it better be on point. He's dropped a few dope mixtapes between The Recession and now though, so I still have hope.

    9. Lupe Fiasco- Lasers (March 8th)
    Lupe was at one time my favorite rapper. Food & Liquor and The Cool are certified classics in my eyes. But he's really fallen off since then, and waiting over 3 years between albums is a pretty bad idea, especially in the hip hop genre. That said, I still have hope that the album will at least be decent. Maybe he's still got it.

    8. Wiz Khalifa- Rolling Papers (March 29th)
    Wiz is a hit or miss artist for me. I much prefer him when he's working with someone else, like the How Fly mixtape with Curren$y for example. But he can put out some good shit by himself. I feel like the album might be a little too poppy for my likings, but I'll wait to make judgments.

    7. Drake- Take Care (March-April)
    I liked Thank Me Later a lot, but Take Care is shaping up to be even better. Word is that he's working with producers 9th Wonder, Q-Tip, & DJ Premier on this one. If those make the album, then it should be great. It would be cool if he could leave Nicki off, but that's just wishful thinking.

    6. Rick Ross- God Forgives, I Don't (TBA)
    Rozay has had a hell of a run lately. B.M.F. was one of my favorite songs of last year. Teflon Don was one of my favorite albums of last year as well. And then before the year ended he dropped a pretty awesome mixtape. Hopefully he can keep the hot streak going and deliver another great album.

    5. Raekwon- Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang (March 8th)
    I'm actually surprised this shit is actually coming out this year, given how long it took OB4CL2 to come out. After OB4CL2, I know not to doubt Rae. And the tracklist/guest list is dope. Really excited for the Ghostface/Jim Jones collab "Rock N Roll" and the Black Thought collab "Masters of Our Fates".

    4. Kanye West & Jay-Z- Watch The Throne (March 1st)
    Honestly, I should be way more hyped for this than I am. It's arguably 2 of my favorite artists of all time. But I didn't really feel H.A.M. that much. Well, the beat and Jay's verse were great, but Kanye's verse was all over the place. I hope that's not a trend on the album. And let's be honest, this shit aint coming out in March.

    3. Curren$y- Muscle Car Chronicles (March 8th)/ Pilot Talk III (May)
    Spitta had the best year of any rapper last year IMO. 2 incredibly dope albums, 1 pretty good mixtape, and a bunch of awesome guest features. This year, he's already released a good mixtape, and plans to release 2 albums and an EP produced entirely by The Alchemist. Should be yet another great year for dude.

    2. Lil' Wayne- ]Tha Carter IV (Winter)
    It's been too long since we've had a real Weezy album. I don't count I Am A Human Being or Rebirth cause (outside of 1 or 2 songs each) those were trash. Tha Carter IV should be great though. 6'7 is one of the best songs in recent memory, and it shows that he's still got it (of course). Hopefully C4 doesn't get delayed and ends up coming out before the end of the year.

    1. J. Cole- Unnamed (probably Cole World) (TBA)
    Last year was Drake's year, this year will (hopefully) be Cole's year. Cole is one of the most consistent rappers in the game, and his debut album should be great. The only guest feature is supposedly his mentor Jay-Z and features production from Jim Jonsin and No I.D. People that have heard the album claim this is a lot like Illmatic, which is pretty much as high praise as you can get.
