Kanye West, Drake and Big Boi Make Time Magazine Top Ten Album List Of 2010!

2010 has been a great year for hip-hop; from the new class of rap of Nicki MinajDrakeJay Electronica and J. Cole, to veteran MCs like Jay-ZKanye WestSnoop Dogg and Rick Ross doing their thing. It’s fair to say that it’s been a very successful 12 months in the wonderful world of rap. Time Magazine has just released their annual end of year top 10 albums of 2010, and hip-hop has really made its mark on this year’s list…
Outkast rapper Big Boi rounded up the top 10, coming in at number nine, with his critically acclaimed, ‘Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty’. Drake came in at an impressive number five with his platinum-selling debut album, ‘Thank Me Later’. But the top prize went to Kanye West, who topped the list with his artistic, poetic masterpiece, ‘My Twisted Dark Fantasy’.
Speaking of Kanye’s chart-topping record, Time Magazine wrote the following:

“Kanye West can seem like an attention-hungry young child who constantly tugs on his mother’s pant leg, saying, “Watch this! Watch this!” But once Kanye got our attention, instead of a simple somersault, he delivered the musical equivalent of a one-handed back handspring. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy layers complex computerized instrumentation over Yeezy’s effortless flow, moving from the heavy hip-hop of ‘Power’ and ‘Monster’ all the way to the poppy Michael Jackson tribute, ‘All of the Lights’.

Beyoncé, Jay-Z and others guest on several tracks. They don’t drop by just to deliver a verse or chorus; they are as integral to the tracks as Kanye himself. This is most evident on “Lost in the World,” a collaboration with Justin Vernon of the indie group Bon Iver that fuses hip-hop with rock until they morph into something else entirely. And that something is probably going to be played at every bar and dance party for the next six months.”

Here’s the full list of the top 10:
Kanye West – ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’
Arcade Fire – ‘The Suburbs’
LCD Soundsystem – ‘This Is Happening’
The National – ‘High Violet’
Drake – ‘Thank Me Later’
Sufjan Stevens – ‘Age of Adz’
The Black Keys – ‘Brothers’
Yeasayer – ‘Odd Blood’
