An Important Day For Hip Hop
Today, September 27th 2011 is an important day for Hip Hop. Why might you ask? Because, for the first time in a long while, I am excited for what hip hop has to offer TODAY. New hip hop singles and mixtapes drop on blogs left and right every single day of the week just like the newspapers put out stories every second, always looking for the latest breaking report and seeing who can get the word out the quickest only to be forgotten the next day. Long gone are the days of anticipation, when you actually had something to look forward to. But today has me excited because that feeling of anticipation has surfaced once more. Today the following albums dropped and you should check all of them out. Hip Hop is alive and well in 2011.
1) J. Cole - Cole World: The Sideline Story
2) Evidence - Cats & Dogs
3) 9th Wonder - The Wonder Years
4) Phonte - Charity Starts At Home
5) J-Live - SPTA
6) Madlib - Medicine Show #12: Raw Medicine
7) DTMD - Makin' Dollas
8) Cormega - Raw Forever
9) Blu - Open (2011)
Now please excuse me, I have a lot of listening to do.
