02.22.11 Most Disappointing Albums By Great Rapp

Most Disappointing Albums By Great Rappers

NOTE: This list is not in order. Great MCs aren't perfect. They slip up sometimes yet those slip-ups don't stand out so badly. Yet sometimes, these great MCs like to think of incredibly weird ideas in their brain, thinking it's genius, or they just throw away that brain altogether. This is my list of the most disappointing hip hop albums made by great MCs.
1Nas
Nastradamus


"Nasty Nas to Esco to Escobar/ Now he is Nastradamus!" This is the type of song the great Nasir Jones made during the Nastradamus sessions. This hook alone represents the MC at his lowest. It was a terrible album and one that should never have existed.
2 Eminem
Encore/Relapse


How did Slim Shady decide to make fart and puke jokes and pass it off as humor? How did Shady decide to make lame sex songs or incredibly boring rape braggadocio? And why the fuck did he decide to make "We Made You"? Definitely the two big disappointments of his career because he lacked initiative. In Encore, he wasn't trying. In Relapse, he was trying too hard by repeating his played-out formula.
3Lil Wayne
Rebirth


Yea, it isn't technically a hip hop album. It is a rock album albeit a enormously bad one. Sorry Weezy. Auto-tune "singing" over crass, pop alternative beats DOES NOT count as rock. I'm sorry.
4Jay-Z
Kingdom Come


This one is debatable. I admit that BP3 and American Gangster in no way hold up against the In My Lifetime series. I should have put Vol 2 and Vol 3 up there in that top 5 Jay-Z albums list. But there is no doubt that Jay-Z's supposed comeback was nowhere near what was advertised. Jay sounded uninspired with his lackadaisical flow and boring subject matter. And Dr. Dre? That guy gave FOUR beats for the album, and none of them were amazing.
5Ice Cube
I Am the West


I am a huge Cube fan. And as a diehard Cube fan, I was extremely disappointed by his latest release. Like Jadakiss, I kept asking myself "Why?" Why did Cube use terrible hooks for his songs? Why did Cube use uninteresting beats? Why did Cube spit mediocre rhymes? Why didn't Cube talk more subject matter? Why did Cube decide to make a song called "She Couldn't Make it On Her Own"?
