HipHopDX.com recently published their “Top 25 Albums of 2010.” First to make the list (ordered chronologically) was none other than Brotha Lynch Hung’s Dinner And A Movie. The cinematic and moody release was noted for its polish and unexpected impact. HipHopDX had the following to say on the release:
Few people saw this coming from Sacramento’s O.G., Brotha Lynch Hung. One of the most lyrical and underrated gangsta rappers of all times kicked off his Strange Music trilogy with a polished, fully-developed version of what the former X-Raided protege made famous in the early ‘90s underground. Lynch influenced Snoop Dogg and Tech N9ne, and Dinner and a Movie pulled a Horror of master [sic: master of horror?] out of obscurity.
Other albums that were mentioned include Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Reflection Eternal’s Revolutions Per Minute, Nas and Damian Marley’s Distant Relatives, Eminem’s Recovery, Rick Ross’s Teflon Don, The Roots’ How I Got Over, and many more.
Congratulations to Brotha Lynch Hung for making an album that worked as a whole requiring work, time, and craftsmanship. We’re happy the folks at hiphopdx.com were paying attention! Click here to read the full feature.
How do you think Lynch’s albums ranks with the rest? Do you think Coathanga Strangla will stand up to the high standard set by Dinner And A Movie?
