Hip-Hop Albums For Metalheads

My buddy is finally trying out hip-hop after being a metal fanboy for...well, a long time. I recommended these albums in efforts to give him a smooth entry into the genre. Anything I missed? I'm looking for great albums, so please, no Ill Bill, Necro or Esham. I would've recommend those artists' albums if I actually thought they were good...maybe Brotha Lynch Hung's first album...(note my hip-hop taste falls off at about the 2009 mark, please don't nip at me for it...)
1Public Enemy
Apocalypse 91 The Enemy Strikes Black

Heaviest hip-hop group of all time. The last track with Anthrax doesn't hurt either. This might actually be my favourite PE album (I know it's sacrilege to say, Nation of Millions is a brilliant album, but this album just bangs so damn hard).
2Wu-Tang Clan
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

I mean, how could I not? The only hip-hop group I've seen be repped by metalheads. The lyrics, the chopsocky samples, comic-book references, there's a lot of crossover potential here.
3Cannibal Ox
The Cold Vein

I'll recommend this album to anyone who shows an appreciation for music of any genre. Buddy told me he had checked out RTJ in preparation to go see them open for RATM (HOPEFULLY), and I told him that there are better El-P projects out there. It was between this and Fantastic Damage, which, come on, this album wins out easily. The atmosphere, Vordul's constant in-the-pocket flows, Vast Aire's once-in-a-lifetime poetics, I love this album.
6 Feet Deep

The whole theme behind this album makes this an easy recommendation for my mans. BEEWAAARE, FOUR FINGERS APPEAR THROUGH THE FOG...
Liquid Swords

[ADDED] Once again, dark tones, chopsocky samples, killer lyrics, classic album. I will definitely be recommending this one as well.
6The Dynospectrum

[ADDED] The playful crossed with the ominous. Not necessarily one of the greatest albums of all time, but the beats and flows keep me coming back every so often. I'll hit him up with this one as well.
7Restiform Bodies
TV Loves You Back

[ADDED] Gotta have one "weird rec" on here. I just recently got into this album after hearing the Interactive Halloween Bear remix and Bobby Trendy Addendum on Yoni Wolf's podcast with Passage. I love this shit.
8Deltron 3030
Deltron 3030

[ADDED] Cuz the crossover between metalheads and nerds is real. The production is top-notch and Del is at peak form here.
9Death Grips

Pure anger. I would put The Money Store on here to, but this is the proper entry point for Death Grips. I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier...
