|Best Hip Hop/Rap Albums|
This is real hip hop. Nothing too new on here, because this new stuff is just godawful. I kept it to rrrone album per artist. Honorable Mention: Immortal Technique - The Revolution Vol. 1; rrBlackStar rr- Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Starr; X-Clan - To The East, Blackwards; rScarface r- The Fix; rrGZA - Liquid Swords
Such a shame to see how far he has deviated from this album.
Credit Dr. Dre for making this album what it is.
The Marshall Mathers LP
I hate what Eminem has become, but this album is no joke.
|17|| ||Ice Cube|
AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted
Those were the days. Ice Cube took gangsta rap and blended them with
social issues to make this classic.
Here to Save You All
Realistically speaking, this is kind of high, but it really is an amazing album.
|15||The Notorious B.I.G.|
Ready to Die
Biggie made Biggie, not the candy-ass who claims he did.
Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous
Best punchline rapper ever. RIP.
Who doesn't like Run DMC?
Black on Both Sides
A staple of any true hip hop fan.
|11||Jeru The Damaja|
The Sun Rises in the East
Probably the most underrated hip hop album (and rapper) ever. Having
Premier in your corner never hurts.
|10||Eric B and Rakim|
Paid in Full
This album inspired so many of the legends. Had to include.
Not the best rapper of all time, but his production expertise combined with
the guest rappers ensures a place on this list
All Eyez on Me
People say 2pac was the greatest, and they're not far off. But above Chuck
D and Guru? Eh, nope.
|7||Pete Rock and CL Smooth|
Mecca and the Soul Brother
When they reminisce over you.
Fear of a Black Planet
Public Enemy was the epitome of hip hop. I just wish the current generation
would follow in their footsteps.
|5||A Tribe Called Quest|
Had a tough time picking between this and Lower End Theory. Both are
Straight Outta Compton
"Gangsta" rap at its finest. Eazy, Ice Cube (before the sellout) and Dr. Dre
on the same album? Oh yes.
Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
I can't say enough about this album. RZA at his finest, the trademark raw
Wu-Tang sound...RIP ODB.
Most people put this #1, but I don't. Then again, I'm just a moron with a laptop and an opinion.
I put this as #1 because I can't find one thing wrong with this album. This is
