I saw Lupe play at the Phoenix in Toronto and he was killer. He gave a great show and had a ton of energy.

I would say Food and Liquor and Hip Hop is Dead are the two best albums of the year by a decent margin with Hell Hath No Fury and possibly Donuts as the other contenders. Lupe may not be the savior of hip hop, but IMO he is the closest thing to it out right now. His body of work is incredible, go cop the mixtapes.

My albums of the year probably go in the order of:

1) Cunninlynguists - A Piece of Strange
2) Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor
3) Chino XL - Poison Pen
4) Nas - Hip Hop is Dead
5) Method Man - 4:21... The Day After

I thought it was a good album - better than most of the mainstream stuff out there now, but it doesn't come close to cracking my Top 5 for the year...just off the top my head:

Game Theory - The Roots
Fishscale - Ghostface Killah
Murray's Revenge - 9th Wonder and Murs
A Piece of Strange - Cunninlynguists
The Healing - Strange Fruit Project
