off the top of my head and not thinking about that was released this year, I'd probably be picking from these:
8-8-88
Wu-Tang Clan - 8 Diagrams
Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass
Freeway - Free At Last
Madlib - Beat Konducta in India
Y Society - Travel at Your Own Pace
Oh No - Dr. No's Experiment

ghostface big doe rehab
oh no dr. no's experiment

then probably a bunch of albums vying for that last spot

wu-tang
turf talk
t.i.
el-p

i'd say that lupe fiasco is easily the best hip hop album this year tho.

Is anyone putting the 8-8-88 on their final lists? Does that even count? Because through listening hours and enjoyment, that should definitely go on mine.

I really wish I liked American Gangster, but I just wasn't feeling it.

I liked it more than everything he's done since the Daylight EP or so. The title track would probably be in my 3 favorite singles of the year.

i dunno, comps always prove tricky for me to think of as an album. This one not as much as usual, but still....

i've received verbal beatdowns from respected folk over my affinity for both the pharoahe AND kweli records. unabashedly, i really dig on tracks 2-7 on desire and i've got a soft spot for TK though i think these are his better collections of rhymes since are black star w/ mos def.

i had to go back and check on the stones throw comp - released early 07. it probably leaked earlier which might've thrown you off, paper.

heads-up cotton: i responded to your pm.

have you found anyone who agrees with you on this? i downloaded it because of your recommendation and now I'm amazed at how much I hate it. He might be the first rapper, or musician of any genre, to join Opeth as bands that can only be mentioned in my house with the prefix "shitty, shitty" affixed. As in "The worst record that I'd ever heard was shitty, shitty Opeth until I heard this shitty, shitty Lupe Fiasco record".

he's been on a roll lately.

Opeth? really? I'm pretty sure I've never mentioned them in any context. I think you're growing soft in your modest mouse hatred.
