I really didn't buy many albums this year, so I ended up filling out my 10 with some Baltimore mixtapes, because I'd rather rep my city than all the mediocre albums I copped (Fab, Kweli, Cee-Lo, Jada) or some random various artist mixtapes like Southern Smoke or something. And I feel kinda lame including so much 4th quarter stuff, but there's just been a lot more recent releases that lived up to/exceeded my expectations than there were earlier in the year.

I'm glad you voted for No Better Love, that was one of the better tracks released this year and I was sure no one else was gonna vote for it.
Surprised you liked the Twista album that much, I thought it was pretty average on the whole and sometimes I fell asleep.
yeah, Kamikaze's not that strong overall, but it's got joints, man. And I don't think Twista gets enough props for his lyrics, probably because it's all about the flow and the words go by so fast and he rarely stops and milks the good lines and makes sure you catch them.
