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
