Most Slept On (Max. 5):
We loathed the jokes. It seemed like everybody and their mother had some sort of link to SoundScan sales in 2009 and that was somehow and indication of how good or bad and album was. For example, M.O.P. sold a meager 2,100 units their first week, but the Mash Out Posse got no promotion from their label. On top of that, their fan base was actually pleased about The Foundation. Red and Meth released their anticipated album, Blackout 2, on Def Jam to very little fanfare on the charts. Even Roc Nation’s Wale released a critically acclaimed album that failed to set off people apathy alarm clocks.
In 2009, album after album came out and were overlooked and it incensed us as consummate, relentless and loyal Hip-Hop fans! So, we command the fans and the industry to stop taking that Ambien and wake up to these gems!
