[Link Inside] The Essence Playlist of the Year 2010
Album artwork is taken from Flying Lotus: Cosmogramma
After a fantastic year for independent and underground hip hop that included releases from many such artists as Kendrick Lamar, Eligh, The Roots, Kno, Deacon the Villain and Shiesty Christ, Eternia and Moss, Black Milk, Pigeon John, Slum Village, J Dilla, Madlib, Roc Marciano, 7L and Estoric, Diabolic, Funky DL, Panacea, Celph Titled and Buckwild, Curren$y, Bun B, Rah Digga, Reflection Eternal, Atmosphere, The Kid Daytona, Sadistik, Blame One, The Foreign Exchange, Sellassie, Joell Ortiz, Skyzoo, Fashawn's mixtapes as well as k-os', Yu and Freddie Gibbs (among many others I'm sure), we in The Essence have populated our favourite tracks of the year for your enjoyment...
The tracklist is as follows and should not be taken as a definitive list of independent hip hop for 2010, it's a shame that some acts on the above list (all deserved of a spot on the playlist) were unable to make it due to not making it into a posters top 3 tracks of the year.
That said, without further delay, here is the playlist!!! See the download link below and finally, one last big thank you to all the contributors, without you, this would not be possible!
