What Is the Best Hip-Hop Album of 2009?

We've tackled rock and pop, and now it's on to your vote for the best hip-hop album. Music veteran Jay-Z may have been all over the radio with his everywhere song "Empire State of Mind," but we also saw several promising newbies make a strong showing in '09, including Wale, Kid Cudi, and Drake. Do you think they can beat out acts like Eminem or 50 Cent as this year's finest? Time to weigh in.

Don't forget to vote on all of my Best of 2009 polls!

I don't listen to a lot of hiphop but what about Estelle? Her last album was amazing, and her talent continues to mature every time she does something new...

^Apparently, you don't know Eminem too good. He changed big time from his previous efforts.
