2010 Hip Hop Selection

"Yo, You remember 2010?" If you do, there's nothing wrong with your short term memory, but if you don't here's a late-as-hell selection to kickstart that kushed up memory of yours. As always i tried to make a selection that covers the entire spectrum of the Hip Hop Nation, so i'm sure there will be something in there for you (and there's bound to be some shit you hate as well, be my guest to delete). It does get harder each year to make the pieces of the puzzle fit, but overall i think this was a pretty good year. There were solid underground releases catering to my 90's heads and Kanye rushed the mainstream with some highly innovative work. All that is reflected in this year selection. Also a lot of good music didn't make the cut cause i couldn't make it fit or because i didn't get the chance to listen to it. If something is sorely missed, my apologies in advance... (shout out to Ricky Rozay, Danny Brown etc.)
