They say if you snooze, you lose, and that couldn’t be more true for good albums overlooked for numerous reasons. Whether it’s falling victim to a popularity contest, lack of a big name co-sign or having substandard promotion, sometimes deserving projects don’t get the accolades that’s owed to them.

But never fret, loyal Hip-Hop enthusiast. This may be the least popular tidbit of the year end coverage but it may prove to be the most useful if your musical landscape was a little lacking this year. There’s no doubt in our minds that your preferences would openly welcome the quiet return of legends once past, a fresh take on the passé gangsta rap movement and plenty of beefed-up lyrical preservatives that most rap junkies crave.

As for ranking them: don’t worry about it. Enjoy each and every one of them, as we did.
