10 Best Hip Hop Albums Ever

Since appearently its everybody's motherfuckin job to do this post, i will too, since im a follower like that. Nhjic.

What MTV sez...

1. Eric B. & Rakim - Paid In Full
2. Nas - Illmatic
3. Dr. Dre - The Chronic
4. Notorious BIG - Ready to Die

Though I dont necessarily agree with those being the top 4 picks, those are good picks. I can certainly respect them.

5. Run-DMC - Raising Hell
Fuck the hataz, no homo. This was influential and good. I find this pick about as reasonable as putting Makaveli here. Maybe even more.

6. Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt
Not that it wasn't good, but it is not top 10. #6 is just way to high

7. NWA - Efil4ziggan (Am I the only one who spells this shit right?)
Straight Outta Compton is a better album, and I wouldn't put that in the top 10 anyways.

8. Ice Cube - Death Certificate
Solid pick, but I wouldnt put it up here.

9. Makaveli - The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
This is not even my favorite Tupac album. No. I hate to say it again: Great album, but this is a top 10 all time list.

10. Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
That took them a while. 10 is way too low.

What I say:

09. ATCQ - "The Low End Theory"
10. Beasties - "License to Ill"

4. 3 Feet High & Rising - De La Soul
5. Business As Usual - EPMD
6. Mr. Hood - KMD
7. Straight Outta' Compton - NWA
8. People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of (Funk and) Rhythm - A Tribe Called Quest
9. Done by the Forces of Nature - Jungle Brothers
10. The Great Adventures of - Slick Rick

The Only reason that
Makaveli - The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
Was added is because it ws the most Recognized Album by Tupac . Being that he dies the same month it released ..

the Video's sold that album ..


i was in 7th grade when this happened

I'm a girl, and I know this is usually a guy's conversation. But that list is all wrong. BDP and KMD shouldn't be there at all. And why isn't there any female love?

> BDP and KMD shouldn't be there at all

first off, KMD, i didnt put it in my list.

> And why isn't there any female love?

No list is complete w/out '...Cuban Linx' and both a Tribe & De La album. end of story. But MTV slipped when NO KRS was on there.
I know rap industry cats were whylin' when they peeped that list.

Mr. Hood? I like Doom too, but top ten? Please. And Critical Beatdown? I could live a hundred years and I'll never understand how Kool Keith got to be so overrated.

In no particular order:
Raising Hell
Bigger and Deffer
Paul's Boutique
Ready to Die
The Chronic
Illmatic
Enter the 36 Chambers
The Score
It Takes a Nation of Millions...
