My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and To Pimp A Butterfly. Two classics. Two Masterpieces. Two excellent works of art. Two albums that will go on to define the 2010 decade when it draws to a close in two years time. Surely these two albums will go on to be some of the best in music history – 808sandblues
This time last year My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy held on the top spot for a consecutive seven years running and it seemed that it would hold on to that top spot until at least the 2010 decade was over. However, its run has now come to an end.
That’s right, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly has now overtaken Kanye West’s Masterpiece My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy on Rate Your Music, a website database (the biggest on the net) in which dedicated music fans go on to rate album releases on. It ends Kanye’s seven year reign at the top of the charts where he held on to it from 2010. Kendrick Lamar now holds the top three spots on the chart with his 2012 effort Good Kid MAAD City. It may come as disappointing news to Kanye West as he only needed to hold on to the spot for two years to hold the title as having the best album of the decade.
Cheer up Mr West! Two years still remain to reclaim that top spot!
Is there any chance of MBDTF reclaiming the top spot? Its unlikely as TPAB now has a score 4.05/5.00 with over 13,000 ratings while MBDTF has of 3.95 with over 16,000 ratings. The Compton born rapper not only holds the top spot on the overall charts but also the 2010 decade hip-hop charts.
Kendrick has plenty to smile about as 5 of his projects have a spot in the top 20 2010 decade hip hop charts
Kendrick Lamar seems to be having a near flawless decade with five, YES FIVE of his projects listed within the top 20 of the Rate Your Music Hip-Hop Charts.
