Kanye West and Lil Wayne

Entertainment Weekly’s Best and Worst Albums of 2010

Kanye West tops yet another best of 2010 list. This time, Mr. West receives the honors from Entertainment Weekly, who called his fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy “a dense, dazzling rap masterpiece.” Also making the critic’s cut on the urban side is Big Boi’s solo debut and Janelle Monáe’s The ArchAndroid. In addition, the pop culture magazine shared their worst albums of the year, with Lil Wayne’s rap-rock hybrid Rebirth claiming the undesired No. 1 spot. But if “6 Foot 7 Foot” is any indication, we have a feeling Weezy won’t be anywhere near this list next year with Tha Carter IV.
