This year was garbage for albums. I can't even think of 5 that came out this year that I still listen to. There have been better mixtapes to come out this year than albums.

Too many people slept on LAX.

The Game made a very good album but the singles just weren't there for it.

2008 was nothing special album-wise in the hip-hop game. 2009 is what I'm waiting for.

Mos Def - The Ectsatic
Rakim - The Seventh Seal
Jay-Z - Blueprint 3
Dr. Dre - Detox
Lloyd Banks - Southside State of Mind
Busta Rhymes - B.O.M.B.
Eminem - Relapse

I can't believe how many albums I missed this year. I was just short on time and got into some other music, but looking at the albums posted that I've heard, I would have to say The Roots album was probably the best, Atmosphere's album was probably 2nd, Nas' album was pretty good, that Jake One album may have had the best beats, and Q-Tips album was good as well.

My favorite album this year though was Ne-Yo.

Killer Mikes was one of the best of 2008, but I found Gza's only mediocre.
