Mariah before Common? Hmmmm, don't know about that one. But I can't argue with your 10 after 6, all outstanding.

What a great way to start my back to work Tuesday. You know, as much as I didn't want to go there with Mariah, I have to agree with you. It's crazy. And Common. At 32, you put it best. Him coming back in, was just the sweetest thing. "Testify" is one of my favorites as well, and I had to crack a smile when you suggested getting a little tired of the sped up soul tunes ala Kanye. Get outta my head with that, will you?

The Game is also a strong cd. You had some here I haven't been exposed to. So, after the grind is done - it will time to do some musical searching. Great post!

I'm with you up until Motown remixed. As far as remix cd's,... I feel as if it's aim was my (admittedly hip) father, as if they hadn't done their research on who is doing the buying of these cds.

The songs are good but almost none are great. I was looking for more to be like "Mary Jane". I have a feeling they regulated the creativity and because of that the album is very pedestrian. And as it winds down (with few exceptions) you could easily miss the songs that are on.

You might be right about Motown Remixed being too high on this list. I completely overlooked one of my favorite Hip hop CDs of this year, The Perceptionists' Black Dialogue. That's what i get for doing this in the wee hours of the morning. It probably should be in Motown Remixed's spot and Remixed would be dropped out of the top 5.

Sleater-Kinney's "Entertain" is a wonderful song, probably one of my favorite songs of the year, though it took 3 or 4 listenings for me to start to like it.

You're an old Common loving backpacker. Love songs?!?! The world doesn't need anymore love songs. LL Cool J's "I'm That Type of Guy" was the last true hip-hop love song.

Love. You gotta be kidding me. What about blowing ish up? Searing hate is what drives this world.

Plus, just cause Common stopped being dressed by Badu doesn't mean his ish is hot now. That Testify ish don't stand up to any of Mike Jones' new album. Atleast that's what I read on some other blog.

Common is just pure trash, man. I thought so well of you before.

What else do you have on your list? Mariah Carey? More effing love songs? We Belong Together. That just don't compare with that new Tiera Marie joint. She talking about real issues. Like how she wants her n*gga to smack her or something. Genius.

Hmmm. MIA? Oh god, you killing me. Y'all only like her cause she some good looking, model type chick, like Russel Simmons wife. Her music is ass.

I won't even speak on the rest of your list. Shows you have absolutely no taste. Negro, please. Gorillaz? I downloaded that trash. Took me something like 3 days on my 56k dialup. Listened to it and decided not to waste my 8x cdrs on that crap. They went to pop anyway with those Apple commercials. I don't even have an ipod. I have a Craig CD player I holding down with duct tape and bubble gum. (Don't hate) with no skip protection at all, so you think I'm gonna skip my way through that depressing Bush bashing drivel.

Who the eff is Sleater-Kinney, anyway. Is that some country music, like Charlie Pride or that hot rapping Cowboy?

I knew you were teh ghey when I saw Picaresque on your list.

Again, your list is absolute tash. Thanks for wasting 10 seconds of my valuable day. I was on my way to my P.O. and you made me late, jepordizing my continued freedom. To think, I didn't even get a chance to hit this Philly. Where are my Newports?

I found Mariah Carey's latest quite refreshing but my man Common aka Common Sense aka Rasheed Lynn has been the truth in hip-hop since "Can I Borrow A Dollar".
