The Purple Tape Award – The best albums of year & possible future classics.Let’s see, there were the ones we were expecting – Doctor’s Advocate, Hip-Hop Is Dead, Kingdom Come, Like Father, Like Son, King…
The young bucks came thru & crashed the party – Young Dro’s Best Thing Smoking, Food & Liquor…
There were the pleasant suprises…AZ’s The Format, Hall Of Justus, Pledge Allegiance To The Grind & the reemergence of Killer Mike, Jim catching and riding the beat on POME, the consistent effort featured on Fat Joe’s Me, Myself and I…
Then there were the solid joints from the over 30 rappers – Blue Carpet Treatment, 4:21:The Day After, Busta’s joint, Boot Camp’s The Last Stand…
The “backpack” set came thru as well with The Roots latest, Murs & 9th’s Murray’s Revenge…, Dilla’s The Shining…
EDIT – Not sure how I forgot Fishscale & HHNF, especially since I listen to “Momma I’m So Sorry” every morning lol.
In other words, there were quite a few albums that could have easily been my “albums of the year.”
But it doesn’t matter.
Those would have been MINE.
The overall goal of this site is to expose and make available to you all types of artists & music. And, to remind you that music listening is truly subjective.
So with that said, if you know of or want to mention an album that others should give a spin, post it in the comments. If you want to go a step further, share a link for it.
