Top 10 Hip Hop Albums of 2009

Here is my list of top Hip Hop albums of 2009. I used to do this a lot when I was with Genetik and post it on the Genetik's blog but I haven't in awhile so I thought, why not now more people will probably read it.

These albums are my favorites of the year in order. They might not be your favorites but maybe there is one on here that you haven't heard and you can give a listen.

  1. Kid Cudi - Man on the Moon; End of Day
  2. Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
  3. Brother Ali - US
  4. Fashawn - Boy Meets World
  5. Royce Da 5'9" - Street Hop
  6. Clipse - Till the Casket Drops
  7. K-os - Yes
  8. Wu Tang Chamber Music
  9. J Dilla - Jay Stay Paid
  10. Maino - If Tomorrow Comes

The albums that almost made the cut.
Jay Z - Blueprint III
MF Doom - Born Like This
Fabolous - Loso's Way
Finale - A Pipe Dream and a Promise
Mos Def - The Estatic'
POS - Never Better
Classified - The Self Explanatory
AZ - Legendary
Slaughterhouse - Slaughterhouse
Felt 3 - A Tribute to Rosie Perez

The albums that I thought would be good and weren't. There were a few good tracks but overall disappointing.
Wale - Attention Deficit
Eminem - Relapse
Rakim - The 7th Seal
Beanie Siegel - The Broad Street Bully
Jadakiss - The Last Kiss
Cam'ron - Crime Pays
Method Man and Redman - Blackout 2
