Galactic - From The Corner To The Block < dope jazz/funk mixed with underground hip hop

Blu & Exile - Below The Heavens < amazing

Black Milk - Popular Demand < one of my favorite upcoming producers/rappers. Sounds like J Dilla with more bounce to it.

Blue Scholars - Bayani < Great new group.

Dj Muggs & Sick Jacken - Mask And The Assasin < anything Dj Muggs is involved with is way above average.

i still need to cop Wu Tang, Cunninlynguists, and Scarface

DJ Jazzy Jeff - The Return of the Magnificent

not as good as his first album but every beat bangs and some have some nice hooks
give this track a listen but its probly the best album i herd this year from the east (no pete rock)


WC - Guilty by Affiliation

this album was solid really good for gangster rap sounded like 88' lyrics with modern beats. i liked it

Tha Dogg Pound - Dogg Chit

theres a few tracks you need to skip to enjoy it but its still got some bangers

Can't participate, I didn't spend one red penny on music this year.   :'(

...but I do pay for my internet service and that's how I get my music so I kinda did pay for music, does that count?

1a. Jay-Z -  American Gangster- Jay brought it back to his roots and he does it wonderfully.  Jay shows he can still make gangster tracks as well as his "grown up" sound.
1b. UGK - Underground Kingz - This just isn't because of Pimp C (RIP).  This album is one of the best albums from the South of all time IMO.  Bun B really gives it his best in this album and of course Pimp C holds it down with his singing and production abilities.
1c. Little Brother - Get Back - Who can forget the group who are making arguably the best music in the game right now.  They have beats, lyrics, flow, and most importantly mad charisma.  You can't complain about LB, even without 9th.
4. Redman - Red Gone Wild - This album brought back memories of Muddy Waters.  Redman comes back with a vengeance on this one, he still has that fire in his voice and the production was pretty solid the whole album.
5. Kanye West - Graduation - I wasn't the hugest fan of this album when it first came out but after a few listens how can you not put in the top 5.  Kanye still drops his musical gems along with a much improved flow.

Evidence - "The Weatherman LP"
This was a stupidly overlooked album - last I heard, it had sold something like 6,000 copies. The production, mostly from Ev and The Alchemist, is consistently brilliant. And the concept is dope - it's downbeat, dark and the perfect antithesis for years of 'sunny-sounding' West Coast releases.

I still don't know why everybody sleeps on it, he is as West Coast as it gets.
Other than that, out of albums that I bought:
Kanye- Graduation

Frontline- Lock & Left
Another overlooked album, no promotion, I didn't even hear about it coming out, but it really was worth a listen.

Kenna- Make Sure They See My Face
Not hip-hop, although it has a little hip-hop production vibe to it, but I can't take that out of my deck in my car.

Stephen Marley- Mind Control
Great album

Lupe's is going to be in here once I actually buy it, and it was hard to leave Common, Talib Kweli, Collie Buddz,  Mistah F.A.B. and Devin the Dude off the list.. Really wasn't a bad year, there is always quality music being released somewhere.
Lupe's is definitely on there for me now, I'd probably replace Kenna off that list.

Ok, here's my list

1. UGK - Underground Kingz (I just love this album, two cd's of good shit, really no fillers)
2. Evidence - The Weatherman LP (GREAT production and nice lyrics....got it a week ago so haven't listened it so much, can maybe move up to number one)
3. Freeway - Free At Last (Man, this album surprised me positively...very nice production and Freeway does his thing too, good album)
4. Strong Arm Steady - Deep Hearted (I'm a big fan of SAS's music, so finally they dropped an album....well, this is almost like one of their mixtapes, but I like this album....was maybe a lil bit disappointed cause I had high expectations but just got it so it may move up on the list)
5. Kurupt & J Wells - Digital Smoke (J Wells is a beast!! Very nice production, some smooth west coast shit....Kurupt is aight on this too....)

So those 5 I bought....here's a list of good albums that I have listened but I didn't buy (in no order)

Chamillionaire - Ultimate Victory
Kanye West - Graduation
Wu-Tang Clan - 8 Diagrams
Styles P - Super Gangster.....
Ghostface - The Big Doe Rehab
Lupe Fiasco - The Cool
Jigga - American Gangster
WC - Guilty by Affiliation
Common - Finding Forever
Young Buck - Buck The World
Joell Ortiz - The Brick
Little Brother - Get Back

There may be couple of more, but can't think of any right now  :P

I haven't really listened to the album properly. I'm sure it will be in there once i've heard it all the way through. I only listened to it on the computer and not on a decent system. I know that Westcoast Voodoo and Addicted To It are a couple of great tracks
