Jill Scott-The Light Of The Sun
Raphael Saadiq-Stone Rollin'
Big K.R.I.T.-Return Of 4eva (More like Return of my childhood! Thanks for bringing back justice to southern hip hop)
Straight Line Stitch-The Fight Of Our Lives(better than Otep’s Atavist)
Jean Grae-Cookies Or Comas
M.I.A.-Vicki Leekx(eargasm, still on heavy rotation)
Chris Mansfield (Fences)-Fences
Zion I & The Grouch-Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation(I just started listening to them and I think they are pretty damn awesome)
Blue October-Any Man In America(long overdue wait, but worth it)
To be continued, hopefully I will hear even more awesome albums this year.
