Dart presents A Gang Of Best Of 2010 Lists That Only I Give A Fuck About… Part Two (Top 100 Instrumental LP’s & Beat Tapes Of 2010)

by Staff on January 2, 2011

I’m Dart Adams and I will be posting up yet another couple of long ass lists. These two lists are for the Top 100 instrumental projects and beat tapes of 2010. Some of you aren’t even aware that there were that many instrumental albums and beat tapes released in the past 12 months. All you’d need to do is scroll through my iPod Touch or my iTunes library for proof. I need to get starting transcribing this list know so I can maybe be done before the bowl game I actually care to see jumps off. I just realized that it’s Saturday.

UPDATE: I actually slept for 6 hours and when I woke up I immediately launched into transcribing then alphabetizing this list not to mention checking to see if these damb jawns even dropped in 2010 (one dropped in the last week of December 2009…fuck it). It took me another 7 hours to complete both of these lists and it’s 2:30 AM EST. SUNDAY. I missed those damb bowl games I wanted to see. All of ‘em. I’m sure I fucked up and left a few of my favorite instrumental albums & beat tapes from the first half of 2010. As I mentioned before, I probably lost the file. Just like I lost that folder of Pete Cannon beats Jay Large sent me back in April. That was a tragedy.

In any event, here are my lists, the counts may be off so fuckin’ sue me. If I missed your jawn, I truly do apologize. Here are the lists:
