The EP is one of my favorite entities. Albums tend to have a far greater chance of being botched both under the task of creating a cohesive album and the sheer pressure that comes with it. But the EP is more an in-between: you get the substantive flavor of an album, the variety of a mixtape and the most creatively uninhibited music all at the price of FREE. Usually. Four of the EPs we chose below come from artists who also released full-length albums in 2010 (Nottz, Donwill, Von Pea and Fly Lo), each of which were also excellent. Honorable mentions go to Atmosphere's To All My Friends, The Blood Makes The Blade Holy EP, Slum Village's Villa Manifesto Digital EP, and Rick Ross' The Albert Anastasia EP (which was virtually replaced by Teflon Don).
