  1. Kanye's year.

    Grey Album - Was hooked to that. Better than most proper albums and probably the best remix project ever.

  2. now this was a great year for hip hop. would put roots up higher but this is one dope ass list

  3. Yup. This is the year I started senior year at high school (graduated in 2005), so I was blasting lots of this...even in my school's student store (which I co-ran).

  4. Wow man didnt know that your such a big Jay-Z fan.

  5. My love for The Beatles' music, and my introduction to the innovative skills of Danger Mouse earned The Grey Album the #4 spot, not Jay's vocals (for the most part).

  6. ...but yes, I AM a big Jay-Z fan. Though I'll admit that things have gone downhill since he settled down with B.

  7. definitely best year of decaded this and 05
