Top 10 Hip Hop Songs 2010

Posted: December 14, 2010 in Hip-Hop, music

The top 10 hip-hop songs of 2010 is an impossible list.  The world was blessed with truckloads of  awesome music after the genre suffered a lackluster year in 2009.  Everybody has their own specific tastes and this year tons of artists were releasing albums.  From The Roots to Nicki Minaj, quality albums and tracks kept flowing from January to December.  I tried to include more of the well known and airplay heavy songs rather than underground or sleepers.
