This year was actually a pretty great year for Hip Hop, I’d say it’s the second consecutive great year for Hip Hop Music. Last year we got a lot of variety, great music and some good albums. One thing that also happened in 2012, was the set up for 2013.
We entered this year with numerous anticipated album releases, which lead to a lot of great music being unleashed.
We saw some of the young guys step into the new roles of leaders, underdogs got their time in the spotlight, and also the legends returned to the game in spectacular fashions.
I avoided doing a top 10 for albums this year, because so many sites do them and it gets repetitive after you read a few. I much rather focus on rap verses, because the choices are much more varied a narrowing it down to ten is a lot harder.
So lets get started.
