41The Documentary - The Game

This album revived the west coast in the 2000s and it featured classic songs like dreams and hate it or love it, club bangers like How We Do and west coast anthems like Westside story and Where I'm From!

Great album! Game lycris is dope! Love every song but I HATE 50 CENT! 9.8

42Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous - Big L

Such an underrated rap artist and this debut and sadly only album he presented before he passed, but he left behind a gem. This album is ferocious and represents the raw energy and spectacular wordplay and punchlines in every song, there was such potential. in my opinion, he's up there with the other greats and even Nas, Jigga and other noted big stars said this guy had them on edge. Had to vote this up since it shouldn't be all the way down here.

This album should be in the top because of the lyric they were so ahead of its time!

43It Was Written - Nas

Nas' second album... This is such a killer. Only a notch below illmatic in my opinion

Nas' equal second best album with Stillmatic, and behind Illmatic

44The Black Album - Jay-Z

Amazing album this & The Blueprint are Jay's best albums by a mile

45It's on 187um Killa - Eazy-EV1 Comment
46The Marshall Mathers LP2 - Eminem

The Best Album Ever... Probably the best of 2013.. Contains smash hits like Rap God & Evil Twin... Love it

Just because it's Eminem it gets here

47Blueprint 3 - Jay - Z
48Licensed to Ill - The Beastie Boys
49Watch the Throne - Kanye West & Jay-Z

One of the best hip-hop albums ever made for sure! The production is incredible and the lyrical content is phenomenal! The themes are also meaningful not to mention it is the two greatest rappers of all time in it! - spencermorgan8701

How is this not higher? Two of the best at the top of their game

50The Massacre - 50 Cent

Much better than Get Rich or Die Trying, it is an explosive party anthem and it deserves to be in the top ten. It had the Best 3rd Week in Hip Hop history. There are 23 songs, of unbelievably good hits like "Candy Shop" and "Just a Lil Bit".

50 Cent was the greatest Hip Hop star of the 2000's. This album wins hands down. It has 22 songs and all of them are pretty good. It also has the top hit Candy Shop.

Get Rich Or Die Trying was so stupid! The massacre thumps, all of 50 Cent's albums, except "Curtis" which has some good songs. But this wins by a landslide!

Wow! This album is so sexy, and it knows how to hit the spot, because its fifty!

51The Rising Tied - Fort Minor

Oh my god. Didn't expect this to be here but I'm so glad people actually realize the fact that mike is so much more than Linkin Park. This album is just pure genius. I'm a huge fan of Linkin Park but this made me specially fall in love with mike.

Mixture of sophisticated and deep equivocal rap lyrics with unique differentiated beats. I loved this album, it's one of those you can never tire from. It proves to show that not only does a rappers lyrical skill matter but the message too and there was a message behind every song perfectly explained.

Fort Minor's the rising tied is one of my favorite hip hop albums. The beats are mixed with musical genius and mike shinoda is a awesome rapper. Also I enjoy lp's new Living Things album

Most underrated album of all time

Immortal technique is the most underrated music artist.
The top tracks from the album are:
(The tracks are in the order from the best to the worst)
1) the point of no return
2) you never know
3) leaving the past
4) harlem streets
5) the cause of death
6) one remix
7) freedom of speech
8) crossing the boundary
9) obnoxious
10) the 4th branch
11) Peruvian cocaine
12) industrial revolution
13) internally bleeding
14) the message and the money
15) homeland and hip hop
Leaving the past is my favourite track

If you haven't heard this album or Volume 1 LISTEN NOW! Tech is the modern day successor to Public Enemy dropping amazing politically charged bombs

Lyrics make sense and it actually sounds like this guy passed English class

54The Hard Road - Hilltop Hoods

This rap group are the best with there beautiful music and there skills in Aussie hip hop. It makes me glad to be an Australian and have this beautiful music to listen to and have right at my door step

55Late Registration - Kanye West

Kanye West best album ever made! It had a lot of amazing hits like Gold Digger and Touch The Sky, along with Hey Mama which is definitely a heart warming song! Features such artists like The Game, Nas, Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco and Jamie Foxx!

The greatest hip hop album ever made! It has all of Kanye's massive hits on here, Gold Digger, Touch the Sky and Diamonds from Sierra Leone ft. Jay-Z!

The greatest hip hop album ever made! Hip Hop is definitely dead now, but Kanye is one of the very few! Who have kept it breathing!

It certainly beats previous work done by most rappers, and itself has made a name in the hip hop industry!
