Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums
The Contenders: Page 6XW
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.V4 Comments
Really stupid that this is so low because it's so much better than mad city (I love them both though)
It's a joke that this classic is anywhere beyond top 15
This is top ten. Why is it so low here.
Most underrated album everV3 Comments
An absolute masterpiece of philospphy, wisdom, awareness and reflection. Guru and premier work together like yin and yang.
One of my favorite rap albums of all time - WillWords
So good like one of Eminem best albums
A good album, but just can't compete with the Eminem show, slim shady lp or marshall mathers lpV1 Comment
She deserves a lot more than to be rated 139. This album is tight.
Nice mix of rapping and singingV2 Comments
A great collection of beats and awesome lyrics.V3 Comments
Post retirement album named after the movie American Gangster is one of a kind, Keep making hit music.
Man this should be farther up the list
Illmatic is my favorite album. Godson was awesome as well. As a matter of fact all Nas's albums were great. I'm not in to hip-pop like Eminem and Jay-z. I don't think either of them suck I just feel Nas is better.V2 Comments
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.
