2011 In review

This would mark officially my 200th post! I would like to first thank yall for the support, for showing love, and checking out my page for the past two years. Its been alot of work posting up this content, these links and posting my thoughts but its been fun sharing information, game, and exclusives. Heres my review of the Good, Bad, Ugly of 2011!

Vic’s Top 10 albums of 2011
1.Kendrick Lamar-Section 80
2.Saigon-The Greatest Story Never Told
3.Raekwon’s Shaolin Vs Wu Tang
4.DJ Quik-The Book of David
5.Game-The R.E.D. Album
6.Young Jeezy-Thug Motivation 103
7.Common-The Believer
8.Brotha Lynch Hung-Coatarmstrangler
9.Big KRIT- 4ever
10.J Cole- A Cole Story

Dissapointing albums of the year
1.JayZ and Kanye West-Watch the Throne

Two of the biggest names in hip hop truly dissapointed. Aside from a few songs, I wasn’t really feeling it. It seemed that they rushed it.

2.Lil Wayne-The Carter 4

This was supposed to be the album where Wayne should have peaked, It sold but Wayne showed laziness throughout this album, Its so bad that the tracks not featuring him were the best tracks)

3.Lupe Fiasco Lasers

Lupe himself said he wasn’t feeling this album and that the powers that be forced him to make this album. Certain songs showcased flashes of what we love from Lupe(All Black Everything, Words I Never Said and Im Dreamin) The album’s commercial poppy production is what killed this album and made you careless about Lupe’s message.Hopefully Food and Liquor 2 can redeem him.

4.Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa High School

Snoop Dogg continues to dissapoint. I havent heard much from this album but It doesn’t look like something fans who are fiending for Snoop Dogg to comeback to his Gangsta rap roots would wanna check for.

5.Dr Dre’s Detox album
Because the shit didn’t come out!


The Winners of 2011:

1.JayZ(Along with Kanye West)
(Dropped a smash album, knocked up Beyonce, and did tremendous numbers off the Watch the Throne Tour)
