We are talking this year! kanye was good in college dropout, late registration and graduation but 808s and Heartbreak was a real disappointment to me. it should be:
1. Lil Wayne
2. Plies
3. Young Jeezy - 3anegroes

Agreed.

Best rapper alive during this time period and he's still going strong. He's still one of the biggest names in Hip Hop.
