Drake Is #16 On SPIN Magazine’s Best 40 Album Of 2010

Erstwhile child actor and burgeoning rap superstar Aubrey “Drake” Graham did something brave on his debut album: He made it deeply personal and chillingly quiet. On the follow-up, with its ice-cave keyboards, glass-eyed R&B choruses, gaudy guests, and indispensable production from Noah “40? Shebib, he challenges his heroes to see how slow they can go. Meanwhile, Drake pines for a college ex, tempts a nubile nation, and tries to play big-boy rapper. But he’s never more interesting than when he’s calm, sad, and uncool.

    yo that list is week. I aint hatin on Big Boi but he shouldnt be infront of Drizzy. They dont even have Em on the top 10 and everyone know his cd was dope. Kanye’s was good but not number on and cudi’s was 9 so he was in the right place I guess.

  • I think he should have been in the top 5.but you know they don’t never give him let alone rappers what they deserve. but let it have been somebody like John Lennon. He would have been number one on every thing. REAL TALK

  • I know DJ Frosty, they don’t know real music when they here it. things like that really makes me mad.

  • SimplyDrake

    come on, he should at least be in the top 5, or in my eyes, number one :D drizzy deserves it, he works hard more than any other rapper out there

    16 is a little low… I remembered what SPIN was, and decided ‘eh, well, naturally they arn’t going to give drake his proper placing, let me click through the rest and see what other rap/hip-hop acts they’ve got on their top 20’….
    and then I see Legend of Mr. Rager at #9.
    What a joke. Cudi’s sophmore album was a piece of shit. BRB, looking for competent music reviews and sensible top 20 album lists.
