Best Hip Hop Album (Mainstream) of 2010
Recovery? More like complete and total domination. After years battling a drug addiction, Eminem came back better and stronger than ever in 2010 with his platinum album Recovery, a project that not only (re)established Em as one of the fiercest lyricists in the game but a rapper capable of creating a plethora of number one hits. Can the man formerly known as Slim Shady top himself in 2011? It's a monumental task, but if anyone can do it....
There was really only one choice here. Kanye West's insanely anticipated My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was much more than an album, it was a cultural force, an album whose surrounding Good Friday series dominated headlines for months. (We know, we know, as if Yeezy's ego wasn't already big enough.) Add in the first five star rating in DJBooth history and there was never really any doubt that Mr. West's Dark Twisted Fantasy would take top honors in 2010.
