Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums
The Contenders: Page 8XW
Em, nas, 50, all go hard here. Rabbit Run is one of the best Em songs everV2 Comments
This album has epic songs and they aren't about the crap that most rappers rap about. This album is a classic and Lupe should be getting way more recognition. There is a storyline or saga of Michael Young History also known as 'The Cool'. No other album has a storyline and Lupe is an epic storyteller. This album is just a piece of literature, that's why it's not as popular, most of the mainstream junkies would probably be in a relapse if they even try to comprehend what Lupe is saying. Too bad he ain't gonna 'Dumb It Down' for you. Lupe, just keep doing what you do. You are what hip hop has been missing since 2pac died. Keep it going!
All songs are great, no filler. Not only is this one of the best hip hop albums, but this is one of the greatest albums in music.
Lupe should have 3 albums in the top 100.
Heavily underrated album, Stoupe and Vinnie both produce some of the finest tracks of the decade, if not all time.
This album is definitely top 10.
You're an idiot if you think 2Chainz is better than Earl.
This is the modern day Illmatic. This should most definitely be in the 50sV1 Comment
Great album - texturally brilliant and a true work of musical art. Production quality is amazing.
The music wasn't enough, Gambino decided to throw a full screenplay along with this album!
This album is always on repeat at my house
The website just lost its credibility for putting this album up hereV2 Comments
This is, by far, the weirdest hip-hop album I've ever listened to. Kool Keith/Dr. Octagon is an eccentric lyricist, who more often than not makes my skin crawl (in the best way) on this album, and his almost complete lack of rhymes should be concerning, but given the intense vinyl scratching, the unique instrumentation, and the sheer hilarity of it all, yeah, this is a 9/10, check it out. - WonkeyDude98
This is probably one of the most bizzare hip hop albums of all time, if not the most bizzare one. It's lack of rhyming scheme and non sequitur lyrics would usually give it a low rating...if it weren't for the abstract production and incredible scratching. - ArchAces
Great album. One of my favorites of all time it displays the art in J. Cole's story telling in a poetic way with catchy hooks and inspirational verses.V1 Comment
