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
20Jay-Z
Reasonable Doubt


Such a shame to see how far he has deviated from this album.
19Snoop Dogg
Doggystyle


Credit Dr. Dre for making this album what it is.
18Eminem
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.
16Chino XL
Here to Save You All


Realistically speaking, this is kind of high, but it really is an amazing album.
15The Notorious B.I.G.
Ready to Die


Biggie made Biggie, not the candy-ass who claims he did.
14Big L
Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous


Best punchline rapper ever. RIP.
13Run DMC
Raising Hell


Who doesn't like Run DMC?
12Mos Def
Black on Both Sides


A staple of any true hip hop fan.
11Jeru 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.
10Eric B and Rakim
Paid in Full


This album inspired so many of the legends. Had to include.
9Dr. Dre
The Chronic


Not the best rapper of all time, but his production expertise combined with the guest rappers ensures a place on this list
82pac
All Eyez on Me


People say 2pac was the greatest, and they're not far off. But above Chuck D and Guru? Eh, nope.
7Pete Rock and CL Smooth
Mecca and the Soul Brother


When they reminisce over you.
6Public Enemy
Fear of a Black Planet


Public Enemy was the epitome of hip hop. I just wish the current generation would follow in their footsteps.
5A Tribe Called Quest
Midnight Marauders


Had a tough time picking between this and Lower End Theory. Both are excellent.
4NWA
Straight Outta Compton


"Gangsta" rap at its finest. Eazy, Ice Cube (before the sellout) and Dr. Dre on the same album? Oh yes.
3Wu-Tang Clan
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.
2Nas
Illmatic


Most people put this #1, but I don't. Then again, I'm just a moron with a laptop and an opinion.
1Gang Starr
Daily Operation


I put this as #1 because I can't find one thing wrong with this album. This is perfection
