This is easily the most difficult decision compared to the other 3 years we've done. Whereas in the other years there were only about 5-7 standouts in the finals, my Top 12 could probably be interchangeable to a certain extent.

1. Cormega - The Realness
2. Smut Peddlers - Porn Again
3. Rza - Digital Bullet
4. Masta Ace – Disposable Arts
5. Chino XL - I Told You So

I agree about nostalgia playing a part in my decision making for sure. But this is what our favorite albums are out of the ones nominated. Not so much what the perceived best albums are. Id say out of the 22 listed i probably copped 9 or 10 of them the day they dropped in 2001. The Mega is a personal classic for me. Such a dope album i can still play front to back to this day. Thun and Kicko is one of the hardest tracks of all time.

Cannibal Ox – The Cold Vein
Jay-Z – The Blueprint
Cormega - The Realness
Aesop Rock - Labor Days
Chino XL - I Told You So

solid lineup of albums. Cann Ox is far and away my AOTY, but I doubt it's going to get this one. Interested to see what does though.

The fact that Kankick and Living Legends didn’t even make the final round is so disappointing. But somehow the 3rd Killarmy album, and a nobody gives a shit about Sticky Fingaz album, made the final round, smh.

The biggest upset to me was Killarmy beating out Dilla for the final spot in the first round. That Dilla album is in my Top 10 from 2001 yet barely got any votes. Surprising since Dilla's jocked pretty hard on here.

The Kankick missed the final round by one point. I think it was one point behind Ghost and Aesop.

^Revisit that Rza when you get a chance. Album is DAFFY. Lot more sampling then the first Bobby Digital and no real auto skip tracks like the first one had.

Yo ETW for some reason i always thought you loved that Black Trash album. Guess i was thinking of a different boarder.

Another underrated gem on this list is Will Rap For Food. It would've been in my 6-10 list and is probably my favorite album of theirs.

i fuckin hate that "we right here" song tho. i have horrible memories of that. it was the warm up song for my highschools basketball team and i remember running out on court as a "fan" during the shoot around and knocking out this 6 foot 6 shaun bradley looking faggot but then never being able to go to ne schools sporting events ever again. that was where we politicked and sold drugs, completely fucked things up for a lil.

im surprised at how many people are including "I told you so"

if I did this poll back when that album came out I would have definitely said it was no. 1....chino is one of my favorite mc's of all-time and I was bumping that album non-stop...but over time, I've come to think it's pretty much his worst album. not that it's bad per se....but it's really just battle rap song after battle rap song with way too many dumb skits in between. it does have some serious heat on it (nunca, let em live, I told you so, don't say a word)...but it's pretty inconsistent and hasn't aged that well. I definitely prefer the battle type chino with introspective/story shit mixed in because he's so good at that type of stuff. this album had little of that and in the long run has suffered for it, imo.

I honestly didn't think this was a very good year. Only a handful of really good albums.

1. J-Zone- Pimps Don't Pay Taxes
2. Cannibal Ox- The Cold Vein
3. Cormega- The Realness
4. Self Scientific- The Self Science
5. Masta Ace- Disposable Arts

Extremely hard choice between PDPT and Cold Vein. I haven't listened to Digital Bullet in a long time but that album is weak. So is the Killarmy album. I don't really know much about the previous rounds cuz I was traveling but Petestrumentals should be here, excellent instrumental album one of the best.

^i actually agree with you aeokq....

digital bullet sucks....i don't know how that album is even here. it has some great songs, but you have to listen to tracks like glocko pop, Brooklyn babies, la rhumba, and shady to get to them. it's wildly inconsistent. same with the killarmy album, although i do kinda like that album, tbh.

That killarmy is dope as hell. I hate digital bullet. Rza was on that dust back then. Album is a mess. He should have stuck with the ASR sampler and never touched a keyboard. Hes one of the worst on the keys.

The first two Killarmy albums are fantastic. The third one was anticlimactic.

Change my fifth pick to All Natural-Second Nature. Masta Ace is my dude but Disposable Arts is whatever to me.
