Top 10 of 2010 [ Soul Edition]: #6 Foreign Exchange " Authenticity " & #7 John Legend & The Roots "Wake Up"


 I don't think there are enough great things to say about a group like Foreign Exchange.  If there's any group out here that test the waters by putting themselves out there with every new project, its this group.  Phonte has come a very long way in a short time as an artist.  He's definitely one of the best lyricists in the game.  He now becoming one of the best male vocalists in the music industry and is getting Grammy Nom recognition for it.  Authenticity is everything the subtle cover art would lead inquiring minds to believe it to be.  The mood of the album is Jazzy and mellow.  The sounds are relaxing and smooth.  And the words are deeply poetic.  That's all I ever ask for from this group.  When I'm ready for life off, I enjoy All Roads, Eyes to the Sky, Authenticity, Don't Wait, and Make me a Fool.

Let me take you back.  Back to a time when people sang about the fight.  When people made real love songs.  When people how something to sing about.  Well in that time, we didn't have The Roots and John Legend.  SO!  Here we are with Wake Up.  Basically
Legend and The Roots primarily covered 1960s and 1970s soul music songs for the album with social themes of awareness, engagement, and consciousness.
 I think they did an excellent job recreating that Motown feel with a 2010 spin.  Its a shame that a lot of people missed out on this tribute cover album  You can't fail when you have The Roots taking something and redoing it the way it should be done.  Their version of Hard Times is one of the best I've heard.  Definitely a good purchase for anyone of any age.  I'll be playing this at future family functions fasho!

Top 10 of 2010 [Mixtape Edition]: #6 Joe Budden " MM4 " & #7 J Cole "FNL"


 We did an E.A.R.S (Eargasm Album Reviews) of this.  There is no mixtape seeing this mixtape in its own light.  Joe Buddens has been going strong since 03' with the Mood Muzk series.  I know there are haters out there who just can't get down with Mouse.  Man.. who gives-uh-fug.  With tracks like Role Reversal, Come Along, Black Cloud, Welcome to Real Life, and Remember the Titans, Joey is making all the smart moves at the right time.  Definitely another great edition to the series.

 Is Cole's Blog back online yet?  That's how anticipated FNL was.  Did it live up to the hype.  No!  And I honestly don't think it possibly could.  The hype machine was on them Stallone riods when pumping out the promo for this sh*t.  But I'm seriously glad to see Cole "Blow Up"!  He's undeniably one of the illest freshmen class rappers in the game and he's constantly showing up people on their own tracks.  He last spaz moment was "Looking for Trouble" on Kanye's G.O.O.D Friday series.  This is one of those albums that appeals to both genders.  Personally, I get lifted to tracks like Enchanged, Blow Up, In The Morning, Too Deep for the Intro, Premeditated Murder, and The Autograph.  The mixtape does have some decents, but then again, its a mixtape.  Cole is that guy.

Top 10 of 2010 [Rap Edition]: #9 Big Boi " Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty "

This was a very difficult decision, and I don't say that lightly.  I almost had to boot this album out of the Top 10 of 2010 after listening to Yelawolf - Trunk Muzik 0-60.  But after a Battle of LP's this weekend.  Dusty Chico's Son still holds his spot in my list.  This album was pretty long awaited and had alot of issues with the release.  One of the biggest issues being the lack of 3$tacks.  Yes, its a Big Boi solo project but we all want to hear some 3K and when it was announced he was off the album, we weren't happy.  But even with out 3K, its still all Outkast here.  You can't deny how easily Daddy Fat Sax sucks you into this album.  You can't ignore the the way Follow Us and Shutterbugg will have you jamming in the whip.  You can't ever skip Tangerine!  The album just has too many solid songs on it.  And ofcourse there's no album that sounds like this album.  Matter fact, I'm going to throw on my Shine Blockas right now!
