Good List. WTT wasn't so disappointing, but a let down. After all the hype, you expected classic but got mediocre.

Wayne has gave up making solid records. Wale didn't have reply value.

@ cats mentioning Cole. That was a surprise of the year

Wale – Ambition

Depending on your vantage point, Wale joining the force over at Maybach Music Group was brilliant decision. After disappointing sales of his debut album Attention Deficit the DMV MC made an album with tremendously high ups (“Legendary”) and lower than expected lows (“Miami Nights”). While Ambition wasn’t a total dud, we expected nothing less than what Wale predicted – a classic.


Lil Wayne – Tha Carter IV

Many were excited to see what Lil Wayne had up his sleeve following his release from prison. In his absence he kept his presence relevant through previously recorded music, but that wasn’t what the people wanted to hear. No, the latest edition of his Carter series was all that mattered. The anticipation was there, and commercially the response was enormous (who can front on 900,000 copies being sold the first week), but the music failed to deliver. We’re presented with a collection of songs that find Weezy all over the place lyrically. Content wise he’s still rapping about the usual weed, hoes, and money. Which is cool when executed right, but most of the album fails to do that. Sure there a couple bright spots, but what does it say when two of the best tracks don’t even feature Lil Wayne on them? The more Wayne brags that he doesn’t write down his lyrics, the more it starts to sound like it. While he will still maintain his status as one of the more in demand rappers of today, this album fails to do anything for his legacy, especially when we know he’s capable of doing much better.


Lupe Fiasco – Lasers

After hearing Lupe’s first two albums, there are two things his hardcore fans didn’t expect to hear on his third album – a club friendly song with Trey Songz and an overall lack of cohesiveness. They got both from L.A.S.E.R.S. After a two-year delay, fan petitions and a major influence from Atlantic Records, Lupe ended up with his first number one album despite the fact that most consider it to be his worst.


Redman – Reggie

Redman, oh Redman, how did we get here? Yes, this released in December of 2010 (which probably was done purposefully so it wouldn’t make any lists) but it was so, so bad. No Erick Sermon meant that Reggie Noble had a brand new sound to work with. Boy, was it terrible. Some autotune here (“Full Nelson”), a little pop vibe there (“When the Lights Go Off”) and you have Redman’s worst album ever.


Jay-Z & Kanye West – Watch The Throne

We know what you’re thinking: How does Watch The Throne make both the best albums of 2011 list and the most disappointing albums of 2011 list? Easy. The hype. Yes, Watch The Throne was a very good album, but you have to admit that the bar was set so high for Kanye West and Jay-Z that you expected something truly groundbreaking. What we ended up hearing was a very good hip-hop album. Nothing more, nothing less. We’ve heard better from both artists on their solo endeavors and really wanted this Marvel super hero team up to produce the best album we’ve ever heard. We still enjoy the album, just wanted more.


Mac Miller – Blue Slide Park

It’s hard not to root for Mac Miller. His music has always been a great testament of the young rapper’s character, and shows someone who truly just loves what he does. His reward for his efforts come in the form of an album that debuted at number 1 which is almost unheard of for an independent artist. Unfortunately once you get into the actual product, there’s still much to be desired. Any attempts he made to get out of the “frat rap” stigma came up short, as Blue Slide Park is filled with cheesy pop rap. “Smile Back” is brilliant, but one of the few lone spots on the album. His lack of subject matter and depth was put on full display here, and while Mac gets a lot of love for being genuine, there is far too much room for improvement.


Wiz Khalifa – Rolling Papers


Let’s be honest. The reason Wiz Khalifa’s Rolling Papers made the Most Disappointing Album list is because he gave away his real album (Kush & OJ) for free and came out with a mediocre follow-up that alienated most of his following by being a prime example of when mainstreaming goes wrong. The album consisted of entirely too much softness and clearly showcased his eagerness to embrace the Top 40 way of life. True, there are a few gems on the project; most notable, “The Race”, in which Wiz reverts back to the same clever, girl-grabbing and “cool-without-trying” style that endeared him to all his fans, but unfortunately there’s just not enough of “The Race” and too much of his highly commercialized second single, “Roll Up”. I don’t know about you but I just want the old Wiz back.


The Cool Kids – When Fish Ride Bicycles

The Cool Kids had a pretty healthy buzz back in 2007 when “Black Mags” dropped but come 2011, that buzz had evaporated thanks to the painfully redundant When Fish Ride Bicycles. The puzzling part of the album was why it felt that the music hadn’t evolved since 2007. The same stale production litters the album as Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish do their best to remind us why they were at the forefront of the hipster rap era. Too bad their fans grew up and grew out of that sound.


Tyler, The Creator – Goblin

It’s hard to deny the movement that was Odd Future this past year. Led by front man Tyler the Creator, the world took a special interest into seeing what the young rising star had up his sleeve. Unfortunately the album is filled with redundant themes based around horror, r*pe, and the occasional gory murder. Yeah it worked for Slim Shady, but even he had to die for Eminem to thrive, and by the time this album finishes you don’t feel like you have any better idea of Tyler than you did before you listened. Not to mention that his lyrical abilities on a technical level are mediocre at best. The use of shock tactics simply for the sake of masking inferior rapping may work for a song or two, but a whole album of it is a waste of time for everybody involved.


Game – The R.E.D. Album

Sometimes you have to wonder what Game’s plan for his rapping career is. Is he trying to release dope and memorable music like The Documentary and Doctor’s Advocate featured, or is he trying to make songs and albums that will sell quickly but not be talked about a few weeks from their release? It would be refreshing if he would return to the former, but fans have to expect that he will continue to follow the path of the later. The R.E.D. Album was a mess of hot for the moment guests, even more overloaded than his prior album offerings. Aside from DJ Premier’s beat on “Born in the Trap”, not much else on this album will be remembered down the road. Until Game realizes that his rapping and good production should be the focus of his albums, his work will continue to be less and less memorable.

The thing with WTT is that people that consider it disappointing had wanted more from the album than Jay and Kanye themselves. THey knew exactly what they were doing and what they wanted, and WTT was the result, if you listen to Young Guru speak on that sh*t he puts it all in perspective because his main point is that people like Jay and Kanye are worldwide stars, with worldwide fanbases to cater too, hence why every song isn't like New Day. Yeah some songs are trash, but they all serve a purpose and the album only will further cement their legacy. If you expected an album of Never Let Me Down's.. well then I'm sorry, Kanye and Jay are in a completely new stratosphere than in 04-05.

If you are a one dimensional hip hop listener like quite a few lame "underground heads", then of course you will be disappointed, in fact you probably are mad right now reading this, but all you have to look at is Kanye's album features from start to present to know who he caters for. He gone from Slum Village, Mos, Common and Kweli, to Wayne and Rihanna pretty much, yet he always caters to the rap fan, introduced us to Lupe, gave Pusha T shine etc.

Fact is, music artists do what they do for themselves period, so I dunno why a lot of you get mad when they don't make the albums that YOU wanted to listen to.

Watch The Throne needs to be removed from this list. Everything else I can agree with. I don't understand WTT gets. The only people that were disappointed had ridiculous expectations or are just haters.

I even agree with Ambition making the list. Yes..it was good. But I expected better..it's arguably better than his first album.
No people who actually can admit WTT was a hype album for sales with no replay value just radio and club friendly music. sh*t was a.ss.

Cole World was a solid debut that's why it wasn't on there, Take Care was a good release as well. I can agree with a lot of theses. Rolling Papers was horrible, Watch The Throne only gets praise due to how wack most of the albums were last year. It actually wasn't all that. Reggie decent, my only big disagreement is RED and Ambition being on there.

I didn't even know Cool Kids dropped something...gotta peep that.

If you're an OG wiz fan you would've known to stop listening after Kush & OJ. If you had been listening to him since Prince of the City you would've known that K&OJ was the end of him not being overly "pop."

.... I didn't expect any thought provoking, "Never Let me Down" lyrics... but all the bragging and boasting IMO hurt the album, no real content. That's why cats enjoy murder to Excellence and New Day more.... those tracks weren't completely that.
