’11 Best Albums: #4 MMG Self Made

After Rozay convinced Wale, Meek Mill and Pill to take their talents down to South Beach, it didn’t take long for the Dream Team to create enough Swisher Suite Studios tunes to complete a potent compilation album. The instant chemistry is visible but still, each MC got a chance to showcase their individual skills with Ricky bogarting most of the hooks. We witnessed the resurrection of Mr. Shakur courtesy of Meek Mill (“Tupac Back”) and cruised through the Sunshine State with Wale (“600 Benz”). The dynamic duo are also behind the disc’s two biggest tunes (“Ima Boss” and “That Way”) but it’s a shame that things didn’t work out with Pill cause he blacks out on “Big Bank.” Still Stalley will carry the load as evidenced by the way he slid in uncredited on the closer “Running Rebels”. Another Self Made installment is on deck for this year but we’re still enjoying this one. Ruh!

    I’m sorry but RR lost a lot of respect. I know Rozay is your buddy and all, but the last 4 albums posted were all better than this

  • MOE

    #MMG Obviously Winning!!!

  • Numbers Don’t Lie

    This album tanked for a reason … FOH Top 10 Album SMH

  • Tay Tay

    Jeezy outsold the entire MMG. Just saying.

  • Hip Hop Essence

    This is were i lose respect for rap radar. How in the hell can the MMG album be #4 while HELL THE SEQUEL at #5, SECTION 80 at #6 & COLE WORLD #7????!! I mean there’s more to hip hop than whats being played in the clubs. Lyrical content is whats hip hop is about and that’s the essence. We don’t need rappers who constantly brag about there wealth, which are mostly lies. The contents of all the other albums i mentioned were better and deeper than SELF MADE. Believe me, a lot of niggas could brag about wealth and make it if that’s what it takes to make it in the industry but you see its not about that. Be true to yourself and bring out the REAL you. With that being said, fuck rap radar…ya’ll bunch of dick riding faggots.

  • Sonny Carson’s Son

    Every one still complaining about the fat cop. He’s winning while your hating behind a keyboard. Yes he’s a fraud and yes he raps mediocre but hes winning (sadly). Get over it. 1). WTT 2.) R.E.D. 3.) David Schwimmer

  • d’andre

    I fuck with mmg, but this album maybe should of gone 8 or 9. Ambition, cole world, tm103 were definitely better. But yeah next year god forgives I don’t number 1!!!

  • Kunta Kente

    Co sign @The Void

  • B.Boggz

    Self Made had a few good tracks but this doesnt belong on no top 10 list, but if I was on the MMG payroll i would put it in the top 5 too.

  • the void

    2dopeboyz.com and nahright.com is cool. havent checked the other ones tho. what about freeonsmash.com?

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Where the fuck is Camp. MMG over Cole World and Section 80. Yoyr fucking R&B list was more legit than this. Who is helping with list? Disney.

  • Swiss163

    Damm near every comment is telling you this shit dont belong at number 4 and you probably knew that before you posted it but you went ahead anyway. Now your list is officially a Joke

    You dont even believe that this album was number 4 !!! Like i am trying to keep it respectful but dammm this is some bullshit you not respecting the art form. This isnt even debatable ???? Rick Ross and MMG as the 4th best album of the year really ??? Nobody even knew Ima a boss was on this Album people thought it was a mix-tape song

    The album sold 58,900 copies in its first week, debuting at number 5 on the Billboard 200] As of January 2nd 2012, the album has sold 183,000 copies in the US…… GTFOH with that bullshit

    you going to learn today -__-

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    HA !

  • Word

    Yall bugging. This shit FLOPPED for a reason. It was solid…but number 4 album of the ENTIRE year???????????? FUCK NO! This is a strong number 12 album of the year for me. Yall tripping. CLEARLY its because Ross has YN in his pocket that the album is placed so high..

    This shit is like the fucking Pro Bowl in the NFL. Its just a straight popularity contest thats why a lot of quality albums/players miss out.

  • RNS

    YN must be fucking the whole MMG

  • CaliSteppin

    Fuck you Elliot Wilson and your mmg fetish!! Cole world and section 80 shit on this album! Smh

  • HollyWood

    Rap Radar is becoming one of the worst website. You will start to see your hits going down. You put Self Made before Secton.80? Fuck this website. Someone please put me on to a better one?!?!?!

  • BIgD

    wow fuck this site

  • Citylivin’

    their opinions don’t validate shit for me really and i’m a MMG fan….but niggas know Kendrick had one of the best albums out…someone said it yesterday…..”Politics As Usual” – Jay-Z

  • mane

    we just need a new hip hop site a good one rapradar has gone ross radar

  • firealarm

    Any list with Self Made, Blue Slide Park AND Ambition is irrelevant.

  • Real Deal

    This was a pretty good album for a compilation. With that said, it definitely shouldn’t be anywhere near the top five. #9-10 at best

  • mane

    WHAT IS ROSS AND MMG BILLBOARD SALES THE ONLY PLACE THEY WIN IS RAPRADAR NO WHERE ELSE I HATE J COLE BUT HE JEEZY HAD A BETTER ALBUM SO FUCK U N RICK ROSS BYE TO RAP FOOOOOLS

  • DC SHARPSHOOTER

  • biggiesmalls

    Nice pick. I even liked “Don’t Let Me Go”, with the verse from Gunplay, and that other cut “Rise”.

  • Nova

    Seriously thoe RR, I fucks with MMG and them but this can’t be the #4 album of the year. Like if Billboard or iTunes were to ask you yall personal opinion on best album list of 2011 (for hip-hop) and yall give them this, I would feel embarassed and they would lol at yall. Just sayin. Yall cool people in all and love the site but c’mon on man. And yall can laugh at my comment and call it soft, idc but when you read this, actually go back and look at your list again. Smh. Look at the comments above mines. I mean some of them joke around a lot but by reading what they sayin, they serious man. That’s all I gotta say
