i don't know about 2010-2012

was 2013 stik figa & l'orange?

2014 was cunninlynguists strange journey vol 3, 2015 was yen lo, 2016 was tribe


i think it would be interesting to see if any of these albums would still win if we revoted, most would probably view find it pointless though since it was so recent

We should just skip this year and give it to wu forever. Some of these other albums are dope but that’s one of the best hip hop records of all time. This isn’t even close in my opinion.

Co-sign Weather. There's Wu Forever and everything else. I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't win though as I've been right with maybe about 25% of these in regards to picking the AOTY winner at the start.

Also was bumping the Soul In The Hole soundtrack for the first time in years today and what an underrated soundtrack. Not one wack song. Got some underground heat on there too from Cella Dwellas and Darc Mind.
