Madvillainy is great, but there's other records I prefer. Doomsday and Geedorah being two of them.

As far as Nostalgia Ultra, I like about half of it, but the other half I find too... Cheesy? I don't know. There's songs where I'm like "Am I supposed to take this seriously?" But Frank Ocean's hooks on the Jay/Kanye album are really good.

Novacane, Songs for Women, Swim Good, etc.. lots of incredible songs there.
just makes me eager to hear his next project. also his new track "Thinking About You" might've been his best work so far.

as for the rest of 2011, i can't wait to hear the new albums by Nas, Rick Ross & Drake.

yeah I feel like I didn't love Nostalgia, but Frank Ocean has plenty of potential. Nas & Drake I'm interested in hearing for sure. I'm still on the fence about Ross. As far as upcoming hip hop for 2011, I guess I'm most excited to hear if Ghostface actually releases Supreme Clientele II.

Nas got back to work with AZ and producers from Illmatic, plus he's been on fire lately - Nasty, and his verse on Outro.
Ross keeps getting better with each album. his biggest advantage is his excellent ear for beats. his verse on Devil in a New Dress was amazing, and Teflon Don was one of the best rap albums in 2010. if he makes more soulful tracks like Tears of Joy instead of the hard shit (which he's been planning to AFAIK), then he could easily come up with a masterpiece.
Drake is taking the time to craft a perfect album this time, as opposed to TML which was a bit rushed, and had too many features.

yeah Nas is deifnitely on an upward swing for sure.

I agree with what you say about Ross, except I dind't hear TD. But his recent verses -- "Devil," "Monster," the track with Drake & Lil Wayne, etc have all been awesome. I'm interested.

Drake I agree with you on too. Although I did really enjoy TML. I mean it wasn't the masterpiece it could/should've been. But it was excellent.

A drug album that isn't really psychedelic. One of my favorites.
