Well the ball drops tonight, and we will be ringing in the new year!  It's funny, 2008 went by with a complete blur and it was so fast!  I mean this past year ha d a ton going on.  The economy took a huge hit (around the world), Americans elected their first black president, Soulja Boy beefed with Ice T and Charles Hamilton and then tried to go platinum in the first week of his album being released (he ended up only selling 46,000 units).  Then we had the Kanye West album drop and it featured him "singing" rather than his usual rap.  We saw T.I. top the record charts while also facing gun charges, and we saw the marriage of Rap and R&B All-Stars Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Yea, a ton has happened in 08', but what do we have in store for us in 2009!?  Let's take a look!
  • The rise of some new young musicians
  • Albums from Bruce Springsteen, Ciara, Mos Def, Missy Elliot, The-Dream, Joe Budden, J. Holiday, Jay-Z, Keri Hilson, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Plies, Usher, The Fray, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas, Matisyahu, and many other musicians.
  • We can look forward to more stupid remarks by Soulja Boy and see what other stupid stuff he does
  • More interviews on the blog hopefully!
  • America will see how much "Change" Barack Obama can really bring.
  • Another Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup
  • The Lions going 0-16 a second time in a row (first team to get to 0-32)
  • The Boston Celtics lose to the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals
Anyways, check back here tomorrow for the Top 10 Albums of 2008!!!  I am sure there will be those out there fighting me on a few things.
