Lowkey - Soundtrack to the struggle
Pharoahe Monch - W.A.R.
Saigon - The greatest story never told
Kendrick Lamar - Section.80
Common - The dreamer/believer
Reks - R.E.K.S.
Talib Kweli - Gutter rainbows

I havn't listened to the new Roots album and havn't given Cunninlynguist's and Hassaan Mackey's albums some proper rotation yet but I will sometime soon.

Dunno, but Oneirology and Undun needs to be mentioned. The way they've tackled their concepts is a way larger feat to me than most of the shit that gets passed on as lyrical.

shit changed my life. real shit for them thugs & hustlers.

only beef is the title.
they should have called it "REAL NIGGAZ".
just so more overly sensitive grown men can get mad at some white hoodrat for saying the word nigga. seriously, those folks sound more bitch than v-nasty.

nah, Pharoahe Monch's "W.A.R." is the best lyrical performance of the year - not the best album though.. probably followed by "eLmatic" yeah. been lots of hot shit in 2011, i'm doing long ass reviews for 11 of them now @ my blog.. gonna drop #1 on New Year's Eve. fucking hard work, wish i would've settled with 5 now instead hahah.

Haha, props for that, I bet it's going to be a great read. :)

For 2011, I think there's been a lot of great music around. Lyrically, W.A.R., The Greatest Story Never Told, Cats & Dogs, R.E.K.S. etc... yeah. Can't complain too much.

I agree with Reks.

You ever petrified, exorcised demons
Believing you leave em breathin they'll get even
Odds are beyond yall, achievin peaceful means of seekin deacons
Ain't no way out, they about beat, by any means

Lyrical, then it's probably Section.80 by Kendrick Lamar or XXX by Danny Brown.

Most of the best shit from 2011 has already been mentioned so im gonna recommend three really dope albums from last year that flew under most peoples radars. Dunno if their lyrically the best, but they are lyrical and dope as fuck.

Rasheed Chappell - Future Before Nostalgia
Rashad & Confidence - The Element Of Surprise
The Doppelgangaz - Lone Sharks
