    This is a good list too. I like the Pharoe Monch drop and the constant Maffew...show's that he's had one helluva influential year.

    No Action Bronson, nothing Jamla, no Great Debater from S-K-Y-Z-O-O, no love for Torae's dope album, no Blu NoYork!, no Reks R.E.K.S., no love for Phonte's album????? Very suspect lists...
