I wouldn't say that there have been too many standouts so far this decade.
Some of my favs:
Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty
Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib - Pinata
Curren$y - The Pilot Talk Series (I, II & III)
And obvs other albums by Shabazz, Lil' Ugly Mane & Ye. El-P's album was aight too.

|Always forget about that one.|
Bladee - Gluee
Chief Keef - Finally Rich
|Check out an act called Doomtree when you get the chance. I ain't gonna promise it's gonna be your cup of tea, but I reckon you might dig it.|
