Number 8: Jay-Z & Kanye West-Watch The Throne
When it was announced that Jay and Kanye were recording an album together, we knew for the most part what to expect. That did not make it any less compelling however. The huge samples produced by Yeezy, the A-list guests including Beyonce, Justin Vernon, Frank Ocean and Mr. Hudson, lyrics about their obscene wealth and the supreme flow of Hov in particular. Both guys bring pretty much their A-games, which makes this one of the best Hip-Hop records all year.
