We're at the halfway mark. You know what that means? It's time to examine some of the year's best hip-hop albums thus far. Please keep in mind that none of these is a classic. I'm only saying that because the word "best" is synonymous with "classic" in the minds of many hip-hop heads. None of these albums is perfect. None is 5-star-worthy. Nosir. These are simply the best hip-hop albums (in my opinion, of course) the year has to offer. Ladies and Gents *drumroll* I give you the 10 Best Rap Albums of 2011.
