As I've shown in my coverage on MichiganHipHop, NPR and more, 2011 has been a banner year for hip-hop from the Wolverine State. More than any other time I can remember, all sides of the Mitten's rap scene have found success: the soulful sound, the hardnosed boom bap, the mainstream gloss, and everything in between. Below, I've written my list of the top 10 Michigan hip-hop albums* of 2011. Read below for more. I’m sure many of you all are going to disagree with my choices (or at least the order), so go 'head and leave your gripes in the comment section or forever hold your piece.
