2011 has been a banner year for hip-hop. There was the hype surrounding Watch The Throne, Drake becoming a topic in everyone’s conversations, and Common and The Roots both dropping impressive albums over the past 12 months. Although we’re excited to be heading into the new year, we aren’t excited for new struggle rap about to be pushed upon us.
Our friends at HipHopWired.com wrote a piece highlighting the 10 albums nobody will care about in 2012. Check out an excerpt:
Busta Rhymes E.L.E. 2: End of the World
Jumping on Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” with a standout, speedy 16 bars, reminded us of Busta Rhymes’ lingual fury, but it did little to draw excitement for a new project. In November he was announced as the newest signee to Cash Money Records, but with a roster consisting of the likes of Nicki Minaj, Tyga and Drake, the competition is so stiff for Busta’s E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event) 2: End Of The World to shock the Hip-Hop globe.
Peep the rest of the list here.
