Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 5

81 The Predator - Ice Cube The Predator - Ice Cube
82 Revolutionary Vol. 1 - Immortal Technique Revolutionary 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.

85 Follow the Leader - Eric B. & Rakim Follow the Leader - Eric B. & Rakim
86 Wu-Tang Forever - Wu-Tang Clan Wu-Tang Forever - Wu-Tang Clan

HOW IS THIS SO LOW?!? Hands down greatest hip hop album of all time ever. Not just the production, the flow from track to track (continuation), the lyricism, the message(s), the personality, the vibe... it has everything.

87 The 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.

88 Doe or Die - AZ Doe 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

91 Cheers - Obie Trice Cheers - Obie Trice

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

92 2Pac: Greatest Hits - 2Pac 2Pac: 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...

93 Run DMC - Run DMC Run DMC - Run DMC
94 Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version - Ol' Dirty Bastard Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version - Ol' Dirty Bastard
95 The 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.

96 Da Roach - Dope D.O.D.
97 Branded - Dope D.O.D.
98 Knock Madness - Hopsin Knock Madness - Hopsin
99 Acid Rap - Chance the Rapper Acid 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

100 Eazy Duz It - Eazy E Eazy Duz It - Eazy E

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

Respect brotha!

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

Respect brotha!

This should definitely be higher. One of the First gangsta rap albums to be ever released and a hip hop icon made this. With The help of Ice Cube and Production from Dr.Dre how could this not be a great album. This album has sold Over 2 million albums making it double platinum and it can't even make it in the top 100. With songs like : Eazy Duz It, Eazier Said Than Done, We Want Eazy, Radio, And Nobody Move make it a success
