Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81The Predator - Ice Cube
82Season 1 - Epic Rap Battles of History
83Revolutionary Vol. 1 - Immortal Technique

Great album! Not enough credit is given to real mc's like immortal technique! Wanna hear the truth? Peep this album

Immortal Technique is an amazing rapper who deserves more credit
He speaks truth about our world, ignore Lil Wayne and other rappers
Immortal speaks the truth with a dope hardcore beat, he also has an excellent flow.

86The Life of Pablo - Kanye West

This album was VERY mediocre. There were great songs like No More Parties in LA, but then you had garbage like Famous. - WonkeyDude98

Just the fusion of samples makes it amazing

Great combination of production and lyrics. One of Kanyes greatest works. Through my hands pt1 and 2 are the best parts of the album with Ultralight Beams and Waves being some remarkable advancements in a fusion of production and lyrics.

87Follow the Leader - Eric B. & Rakim
88Doe or Die - AZ

AZ is the most underrated artist of all time in my opinion. He has made some of the best hip hop tracks and albums of all time and he still isn't very popular. He also made one of the best hip hop verses of all time in Life's a Bitch. - TheMusicNerd

89The Rising Tied - Fort Minor

I think this should be on the list cause its REAL RAP! it talks about real life! not just smoking weed and banging girls! there is even a song on this album that disses all the other rappers! and the songs on here are from his experience! And... ITS MIKE SHINODA! you gotta love mike shinoda!

Very good and real. Every song is great. Shinoda is a beast

Love this album to death. The guys flow is one of the best out there

90Cheers - Obie Trice

Haven't seen this album on any top lists. This album is unreal from start to finish

912Pac: Greatest Hits - 2Pac

Pac is a great rapper and this is his greatest hits, why isn't this higher?!?!?

Two Pac is the greatest rapper of all time, lyrical energy style swagg intelligence even stage presentation...

92The Waters - Mick Jenkins

Oh my god I nearly lost it when I saw The Water[s] is even on this list. I cannot stress enough how underrated and slept on this mixtape is. Mick's flow is so smooth yet powerful, the message is incredible, and the instrumentals OHHH MY GODDD. The way this project makes you feel as though you are literally submerged in water is the most incredible part, please just give this a chance. It is so so so good.

93Da Roach - Dope D.O.D.
94Branded - Dope D.O.D.
95Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version - Ol' Dirty Bastard
96Knock Madness - Hopsin
97Acid Rap - Chance the Rapper

Great songs in the album but some of the songs are a let down. Best songs are Favorite song and Cocoa Butter Kisses

98Eazy Duz It - Eazy E

It isn't the greatest rap album and the flows aren't that good, but it still is the origin of gangsta rap, so you can say it's epic. It's made by the Godfather of Gangsta Rap too

Eazy's flow and delivery aren't bad, they are unique. Honestly this album should be at least on top 100s.

Respect brotha!

Eazy's flow and style aren't bad, they are unique and great!

Respect brotha!

EAZY E! Should be in top 50

99Everready: The Religion - Tech N9ne

Tech nine is one of the best rappers to hit the mic

Sick album, should be in the top ten

100The Incredible True Story - Logic

One of the realest rappers in a while, he puts this album together in such away that you feel immersed in this universe he puts you in. His writing and flow is too good to be placed this low

Probably one of the most underrated rapper/story teller coming into the game today. The way he paints pictures makes me reminisce about the first time I heard nas' illmatic

Get this album, plug your phone into some speakers in your room, lay down on your bed, and listen from start to finish.

Deepest stuff being written in any genre right now. Prod also great.
