For the past four years I have been buying more alternative albums than Hip Hop, because it was lacking. Of course, I copped Ghost, Alchemist, BCC, and all Nas releases. But that was like three Hip Hop album per year. However this year Hip Hop has been dropping quality album consistently.
So far I bought: The Documentary, Monkey Barz, Chemistry, Late Registration, AWOL, Reloaded, and the Minstrel Show.
I'm looking forward to the GZA/Muggs, Ghost, and Nasdaq (if it comes out) album.
