Pt. II of Somberlain's Top Hip-hop Albums
10GZA
Liquid Swords


20-At a time when RZA's production couldn't miss combined with GZA's amazing lyrical dexterity, this is a thinly disguised Wu-Tang album fav track 4th Chamber
9Ultramagnetic MCs
Critical Beatdown


19-With production that was way ahead of its time, Kool Keith steals the show from his partners before he truly lost his mind fav track Give the Drummer Some
8The D.O.C.
No One Can Do It Better


18-West coast 80s hip hop that's not gangsta rap? Even though NWA make an appearance here and its produced by Dr. Dre this has more of an East coast vibe lyrically and the D.O.C. could've been one of the best MCs ever fav track Its Funky Enough
7Mobb Deep
The Infamous


17-Hardcore hip-hop at its finest at a time when Prodigy was one of the best MCs around while Havoc was and continues to be a very underrated producer fav track Shook Ones PT. II
6Redman
Whut? Thee Album


16-With Erick Sermon behind the boards this is an outstanding debut that has been overlooked because of his later work but it remains his finest hour fav track Time 4 Sum Aksion
5Dr. Octagon
Dr. Octagonecologyst


15-A truly mind-boggling experience from a former mental patient (and it shows) but with Dan the Automator at the helm and turntable fireworks courtesy of DJ Q-Bert this is one of the most unique albums ever made fav track Blue Flowers
4Ghostface Killah
Supreme Clientele


14-This is the 1st album I ever bought on the day it came out so it holds a certain sentimental value but its still great and even though hes assisted by his clansmen this seems much more like a solo album than the debut fav track One
32Pac
Me Against the World


13-What he may have lacked in lyrical ability he more than made up for with raw emotion, you could truly feel what he was saying fav track Me Against the World
2Raekwon
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...


12-With Ghostface riding shotgun and assist from other clansmen as well as the RZA's incredible production, along with the concept, this is the best Wu solo album fav track Verbal Intercourse
1Dr. Dre
The Chronic


11-One of the most influential albums in hip-hop introduced the world to G-funk and future star Snoop Dogg fav track Nuthin but a G thang
