Ten best hip hop shows of 2011 in Denver

There were so many hip-hop shows and concerts this year, it was hard to keep count. The shows of note, though, were bangers and crowd pleasers and showcased dynamic artistry. With so many epic moments (?uestLove and Jazzy Jeff at Beta, anyone?), it was hard to narrow it down, but we've compiled a list of the top ten best hip-hop concerts of the year. From Waka Flocka Flame at Club Arriba to Raekwon at the Summit Music Hall, hip-hop was all over the place this year, and it won't stop, cause it can't stop!
