    One by one, SXN80 grandfather @Michael Myers and I will be posting the best, most critically acclaimed and most popular rap and hip hop albums released between the dates of 1 January 2010 - 31 December 2019 to find out the answer to one of life's most eternal, pressing questions: what is the S80 community's list of the best albums of the decade?

    We'll be following the RateThisAlbum format; give the album posted a rating out of 10 and we'll average out the scores, ranking the top rated albums to make our final list.

    Rating so far:

    [2018] Pusha T - DAYTONA: 8.1/10 (18 ratings)
    [2014] YG - My Krazy Life: 8.6/10 (13 ratings)
    [2015] Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly: 8.2/10 (15 ratings)
    [2014] Future - Honest: 8/10 (7 ratings)
    [2011] Kanye West & Jay-Z - Watch the Throne: 8.5/10 (16 ratings)
    [2015] Lupe Fiasco - Tetsuo & Youth: 6.7/10 (14 ratings)
    [2014] Isaiah Rashad - Cilvia Demo: 8.6/10 (12 ratings)
    [2016] A Tribe Called Quest - We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service - A Tribe Called Quest: 9.5/10 (10 ratings)
    [2017] Tyler, The Creator - Flower Boy (TBA)

    Yes/no is a bad idea imo

    Maybe albums above a certain score or have a top 10/15 by everyone and give points for the ranking (nr 15 gets 1 point and 1 gets 15 or something) and then count all of the points for each album mentioned? @Sav Stanfield

    Good call btw my list is pretty easy to make tbh

    the downside on having everyone just post their lists is that there wont be any discussion on each album.

    we could have a rating system from 1 to 5 (or 1 to 10) and then add up the points for each album putting in order of how many points they got

    I figured I'd just go through a bunch of popular/albums from the decade lol. But now that I think about it would be dope if you or anyone else wants to jump in to give some different perspectives?

    Nice!

    I was looking for new albums to listen to. I'm sure i've missed out on a lot this decade.

    Hopefully we get a bunch of good suggestions.

    @Sav Stanfield Maybe you can make a new poll for each year.

    For example, you take the 5 or 10 most popular albums of 2010 and make a poll. You leave the poll up for like 2-3 days. Then you make a new poll for 2011 with the 5 /10 most popular albums. Rinse and repeat until 2020.

    Then at the end you take the album with the most votes from each year and make a final poll..

    Not sure how much work that would be but I think a system like that would make a lot of sense.

    thanks man. I thought about polls, only problem with that is that albums from some years (e.g. 2015) are going to miss out on being on the final list.

    But I think @Michael Myers and I (and whoever else wants to join in) are going to start posting albums one by one that everyone can rate and everyone else can suggest other albums we may have missed out. Just like we did for @RateThisAlbum. We'll rate each album and then at the end tally up the ratings.

    Stay tuned!

    After much debate, the big horror movie homie and S80 stalwart @Michael Myers and I are proud to present SECTIONEIGHTY'S OFFICIAL ALBUMS OF THE DECADE LIST.

    We'll be running this pretty much like the Rate This Album threads that our forefather @Big Cuntry first brought to S80 (and that introduced me to so much new music) and that the poster FKA WheresTheMeat @Enez picked up on earlier this year.

    Difference is we'll only be rating a limited number of albums: those most popular, most highly critically acclaimed and 'biggest' rap and hip hop albums of the decade. At the end of the run we'll tally up the ratings and compile our list of top (10? 20?) albums. Open to any suggestions for which albums to rate.

    And without further ado.

    ALBUM 1: PUSHA T - DAYTONA

    [​IMG]

    Tracklist
    01. If You Know You Know
    02. The Games We Play
    03. Hard Piano ft. Rick Ross
    04. Come Back Baby
    05. Santeria
    06. What Would Meek Do? ft. Kanye West
    07. Infrared

    The peak of GOOD Music's 2018 Surgical Summer, the peak of Pusha's solo career. Cocaine. Luxury. Genius. Instrumentals hand picked from the Garden of Eden. The stabs at Drake that would evolve into the biggest beef of the decade. Even at only 7 tracks long, it feels like a complete, polished work. I'm left wanting more but hitting play on the first track again just seems to do the trick every time. I give it 9 EUGHKS out of 10.

    Where the other albums were a huge let down imo, Daytona lived up to the Kanye produced album streak we got that year. I'm glad it was so short because it didn't have any real filler tracks, and Kanye x Pusha proved to be a golden combo again. Pusha always delivers and this time was not different. Rick and Yeezy did their thing as well. 8.5/10

    I forgot about it completely. It was dope but somehow it lost all of its' replay value suddenly. Album was pretty good. It felt like an EP, I mean at least should have been like 9 tracks but who cares really. I'd give it a 8.

    Instead of going album by album which will take forever, why don’t you just list all of the contenders at once and we leave are respective /10 rating for each one. We can skip and albums we haven’t listened to

    Because it was @Sav Stanfield idea to create discussion about each album instead of just people posting their ratings and leave it at that

    4/10. Overrated. Has only 1 standout track, the games we play.

    next up, Revival. 10/10

    Some standouts for me this decade that I feel deserve to be nominated afterwards:

    In no particular order:

    Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
    Drake Take - Care
    Eminem - Recovery
    Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Piñata
    Tech N9ne - All 6's and 7's
    Yelawolf - Love Story
    Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music
    Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty
    Dr. Dre - Compton

    I'm probably forgetting a bunch. Also didn't include mixtapes.

    Daytona is overrated imo.

    As far as quality and production it's probably a 7.5 - 8, possibly even higher, but in terms of how much enjoyment I got out of it I'd have to give it an overall score of like 5-6/10. There's really only one song I listen to from that album.

    Easily Pusha’s best solo project and the closest he’s ever come to his Clipse prime. Kanye proved that no matter how hard he falls off as a rapper, he’s still one of the best producers out. 8/10
