2011-some of the dopest music released this year...

Things are mad exciting at the moment my crew Evil Mule are releasing a dope new video really soon and we are having a fat release party next week, I would like to send out the utmost gratitude and thanks to Peter Stobbart from AV Services for all his hard work, direction, guidance, ideas and for just being an awesome fella and big thanks to my Mules for working hard and perfecting their craft.

Personally I think 2011 has been a really dope quality year for true Hip Hop music and their really does seem to be resurgence of a New School of true MC's and DJ's and Producers that are dedicated to the art from we know as Hip Hop, so here is a list of what I think are the dopest releases of 2011 so far...
