Top 10 Hip Hop Albums 2010

Posted: December 15, 2010 in Hip-Hop, music

The top 10 hip-hop albums of 2010 don’t raise as much of a debate as the top 10 hip-hop songs of the year.  It’s pretty clear that Eminem (3,000,000+ albums), Drake (447,000 in first week), Kanye West (600,000 and counting), T.I., Lil Wayne, B.O.B., and Rick Ross all deserve to be among the discussion.  The creativity of Nas and Damian Marley earn them a nod on the list.  Hip-hop legends The Roots check in with their 9th studio album making some noise.  Overall, a very solid year across the board for hip-hop fans of all types.
