Best Hip-Hop of 2006

Quentin Huff's top-ten list of mixtapers, hustlers, protesters, emcees, and self-proclaimed kings finds hip-hop very much alive and well in 2006.


J Dilla: Donuts

The last album of a tragically-fallen legend is a tour de force of brilliant beats and unbelievable subtleties, wild experimentation and great production; but no, the title has no deeper meaning. In the label's own words, "Dilla likes donuts".
