Top 40 Hip Hop Albums 2010

rap music 2010 top

2010 was an interesting year for Hip Hop. The first year in Hip Hop’s fourth decade saw the gap between non-commercial Hip Hop and mainstream rap grow ever wider. The underground was as diverse and creative as ever, with veterans and new artist alike dropping dope projects the whole year through. The mainstream had best-selling albums from pop rappers like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, and a mega-seller by Kanye West – who’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is aging well, unlike 2010’s other big commercial success, Eminem’s Recovery. Ye’s album is turning out to be a classic – and 2010 had plenty more albums that may never be absolute classics like MBDTF is, but which are more than solid. Yes, 2010 definitely was a good start to a new decade. For this list, we have ranked OUR 40 favorite albums released in this year (not included are EP’s, mixtapes or instrumental albums). What do YOU think?
