Albums Of The Year 2011

Here's my round up of some of my favorite albums this year. Not as many as last year and I felt that this year was a bit of a strange one as far as LP releases went...

Roots Manuva "4everevoultion" - One of the best Lp's Farda Roots has put out

Smif N Wessun and Pete Rock "Monumental" - A great classic NYC Hip Hop Lp

Buju Banton "Before The Dawn" - Big LP released just as The Gargamel was incarcerated

Sizzla "The Scriptures" - Solid LP from Kalongi

Raekwon "Shaolin Vs Wu-Tang" - Was expecting big things from this Lp, solid but slighty disappointing

Ricky Ranking Featuring Roots Manuva "Heal Your Mind"

Banana Klan Godfather and UK Dancehall legend Ricky Ranking returns with some new material. "Heal Your Mind" Featuring Roots Manuva.....

DJ Diablo aka Rebel "I" Late Night Old Time Reggae" Volume 1-3

Rebel "I" Tribute To Bob Marley "Tuff Gong" 1945-1981

Robert Nesta Marley "Tuff Gong" 6th February 1945 - 11 May 1981

May 11th 2011 marks the 30th Anniversary of Bob Marley's passing. 300 million albums sold worldwide, countless awards and achievements, Bob Marley put reggae music on the map worldwide plain and simple. You can check wikipedia for the full info on his life as I'm not gonna run it down here but the man is a legend. No artist from Jamaica has ever come close to matching his success and popularity. According to Amnesty International he is recognised as the face of freedom throughout the world.
