Best Hip Hop Albums

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Stankonia - Outkast V 1 Comment
42 Greatest Hits - 2Pac

This album should not be on this list because it is a compilation. - Rambles

43 The College Dropout - Kanye West

One of the most revolutionary albums of all time! It was universally acclaimed and launched West's career as arguably the greatest artist in the world. - spencermorgan8701

Kanyes best album by a landslide, it's not yet caught up in his ego yet. And on top of his mind blowing production and charismatic rapping the features list is nothing less than incredible

Greatest ever

44 Things Fall Apart - The Roots
45 Stillmatic - Nas V 1 Comment
46 Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor - Lupe Fiasco
47 Step In the Arena - Gang Starr

All amazing hits, such as Take The Weight and Just To Get a Rep. Gang Star are the most underrated artists ever and are true Underground cats!

The most legendary hip hop album I have ever heard! Guru is a great rapper, and Gang Starr are a very dynamic duo!

True underrated, pure hip hop nothing less from this amazingly excellent album!

48 The Documentary - The Game

This album revived the west coast in the 2000s and it featured classic songs like dreams and hate it or love it, club bangers like How We Do and west coast anthems like Westside story and Where I'm From!

Great album! Game lycris is dope! Love every song but I HATE 50 CENT! 9.8

49 All Eyez on Me - 2pac

Excellent Album

50 The Predator - Ice Cube V 1 Comment
51 Ready to Die - The Notorious B.I.G.
52 Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous - Big L

Such an underrated rap artist and this debut and sadly only album he presented before he passed, but he left behind a gem. This album is ferocious and represents the raw energy and spectacular wordplay and punchlines in every song, there was such potential. in my opinion, he's up there with the other greats and even Nas, Jigga and other noted big stars said this guy had them on edge. Had to vote this up since it shouldn't be all the way down here.

This album should be in the top because of the lyric they were so ahead of its time!

53 Blueprint 3 - Jay - Z
54 It Was Written - Nas

Nas' second album... This is such a killer. Only a notch below illmatic in my opinion

Nas' equal second best album with Stillmatic, and behind Illmatic

Amazing album this & The Blueprint are Jay's best albums by a mile

56 It's on 187um Killa - Eazy-E V 1 Comment
57 The Marshall Mathers LP2 - Eminem

The Best Album Ever... Probably the best of 2013.. Contains smash hits like Rap God & Evil Twin... Love it

Just because it's Eminem it gets here

58 Licensed to Ill - The Beastie Boys
59 Atrocity Exhibition - Danny Brown
60 Watch the Throne - Kanye West & Jay-Z

One of the best hip-hop albums ever made for sure! The production is incredible and the lyrical content is phenomenal! The themes are also meaningful not to mention it is the two greatest rappers of all time in it! - spencermorgan8701

How is this not higher? Two of the best at the top of their game
