The Contenders: Page 4XW
Best album ever. They are my favourite rap group. They take hip hop to a new level.
Way to low this shows you people don't know about rap if this is gonna be this low - JCchrom3V1 Comment
Seriously? 2nd greatest rap album EVER. A masterpiece.
No. 60? really shows how little people know about hip hop nowadays
I love Kanye, but this album was pretty bad
Should be the top three with Run DMCs Raising Hell, and Public Enemy's It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. Significantly better and more consistent than anything rated higher.
Man number 1 leaves all for dead amount of samples in there the work just getting them wow.
The amount of samples in this simply boggles the mind
Greatest hits albums do not count - Sabbath
Like kinda right greatest hits albums kinda don't count but when I'm gone is so good I will make an exception
Great album, with great songs. If you like Jay-Z better than Eminem, than you should listen to this album. This album will change your mind about that.
It also has only the best rap song everV4 Comments
I just bought this album the other day and The Game absolutely kills it. He's got some awesome beats and clever lyrics. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a rap album.
In my opinion the best after illmatic. Probably the most underrated rap album of all time with great production from Dre.
Rise of the west coast... again.
A quintessential DJ Premier and Guru album. As a lyricist, Guru's rhymes are timeless, and DJ Premier's production is on point like always.
This album should be much higher on the list! The songs were meaningful and thoughtfully put together. I still remember sitting down and listening to the whole album like one would watch a movie. It's a piece of art.
Deep intrespective story. Sick flow. Real message. Meaningful lyrics. Great album
keep ya head up, I get around, holla if ya hear me,
A true classic it is one of his most underrated albums with the song: papaz song, keep ya head up, last wordz, streets R death row and much more (in my opinion better then AEOM)
Come on guys this is truly a great album
Awesome album without unnecessary skits and intros. All great songs
Come on all great songs on this album lp kills it in the production and killer Mike is on it the whole album only bad song is love again
Truly a beautiful storyline. I wish people would appreciate this album more. Also the song things fall apart I have cried because of how much it is relatable.
Nas is my favorite artist, but even I'll admit that this album was not that good. - TheMusicNerd
Contends for the most densely produced and greatest uses of samples of all time. Conscious lyrics, fantastic delivery, socially responsible.P.E. 's peak in my opinion.V1 Comment
