Gearing up for the end of 2011, all I have been hearing people say is, “2012 is going to be my year!” But plenty actually made a big splash in 2011 especially quite a few of Hip-Hop artists.

Some artists reinvented themselves and surprised everyone with some fresh material. Other artists were new to the Hip-Hop game and set a new level of music to be mastered. Either way moments were created, memories were logged and history was made. Hip-Hop wears the crown for 2011.

Here are the top Hip-Hop albums, mix-tapes, singles and of course the top ten artists I chose that are already in the running to take over 2012:
