    Watch The Thrown was hands down a great album of the year. My personal fav album that come out this year was, Island and The Sun, by Shwayze and Cisco Adler.

    Along with all of that, I’m hoping my name will start buzzing around on this website with in the next year I want you all to get ready for me because I mentally deserve to be mentioned in videos like these because I have so much to bring in the game (I’m working on it). I guess those people have brought things already though :) My second mixtape is on it’s way Feb 1st and my first one is out right now. I’m doing the best I can do out here but I’m telling you watch for my name in videos like this soon and yall could come back here and refer to this comment as to why it’s there!

    lol. who would have thought that all these dudes would kiss jay & kanye’s asses? no love for tech n9ne, yela or shabazz? typical bullshit. oh and fabolous better be fucking joking. if he is that’s very funny

  • Sleexe

    there’s no Tech N9ne on this? So, he didn’t make 2011 his biggest year?

  • Mackavelli

    These niggaz are stupid! They were definitely kissing some ass…watch the throne was probably one of THE WACKEST albums of 2011…C4 was probably the BEST album, lyrically and beat wise was waaaaay better than C3…c3 had all those gay “pop hop” tracks as I call them, radio garbage singles…C4 was gritty and brought it back to C2 days. BEST MIXTAPE PROBABLY LEANING TOWARDS NIPSEY HUSSLE TMC….gay z is the biggest hip hop fraud out there, I really wish 50 would expose him like he should’ve done years ago. Jay’s street cred was bought, and made off of rappers like Jaz-o and all these wack ass young fans and old fans still ridin’ jay’s dick need to shut the fuck up. 50 also dropped two dope mixtapes this year…Let the hate begin…I’ve made my points, n DJ drama needs to just die for all the mixtapes he fucked up for yellin all over them…doesn’t anyone realize yet, that more fans download your mixtapes WITHOUT A STUPID DJ TRYING TO TAKE ALL YOUR ATTENTION/CREDIT….EVEN WORSE ANOTHER PIECE OF YOUR PIE…but your mixtape out NO DJ and you get more profit, plus more downloads, which equals bigger fan base and in turn bigger crowds at your shows….OH AND HOW THE FUCK COULD I FORGET ABOUT LEP…who DID DROP THE BEST MIXTAPE OF 2011 hands down…DETROIT….1

    LEP is from Chicago not Detroit. Unless you’re saying you represent for Detroit, then that’s a shame. If you’re from Detroit you need to be shouting out Danny Brown and Elzhi not C4. C4 was NO WHERE near the album of the year.

    Section.80, Take Care, XXX, Elmatic, Return of 4eva, A Cold Day in Hell, LiveLoveA$AP, Dr. Lecter, Undun, The Dreamer The Believer, among others were all better than C4 AND Watch The Throne, in my opinion. Maybe because people expected so much from a Jay-Z and Kanye collaboration. I don’t think Watch the Throne met people’s expectations.

    what i don’t get is that ALL these so-called DJ’s don’t realize Section 80 WASN’T a MIXTAPE!!! IT WAS AN ALBUM!!!
    I AGREE TECH N9NE DROPPED 2 HUGE ALBUMS IN 2011 AND HE GETS NO LOVE??? GIVE HIM HIS RESPECT HE ‘S BEEN PAID HIS DUES, AND I’M FROM NYC WHERE HE GETS NO RADIO PLAY. AS FAR AS MIXTAPES A.S.A.P. ROCKY, L.E.P. BOGUS BOYS FREDDIE GIBBS, BIG K.R.I.T., LLOYD BANKS, FABOLOUS ALL DROPPED HEAT ALL THIS PROVES IS THAT SO-CALLED EXPERTS DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT GOOD MUSIC, FOR REAL FRENCH MONTANA? MEEK MILLS? C’MON SON. KNOCK IT OFF THEY AIN’T EVEN CREATIVE.

    A lot of artists don’t even listen to a lot of other music. At least not nearly as much as hip-hip critics, fans, etc. So their opinion is often based on what they’ve heard. Just because they’re rappers doesn’t mean their opinion is law. I’d take the opinion of the XXL staff or people on forums (the non-ignorant ones) over a lot of these guys any day.

  • Murz

    where did prodigy get that JFA jacket??? must cop!

  • Sandrine

    The fact that they didn’t mention Big K.R.I.T. or Freddie Gibbs amazes me.
