Best Hip Hop Albums

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Get Rich or Die Tryin - 50 Cent

I can understand why this album doesn't get its due though. Because virtually EVERY ALBUM HE RELEASED AFTER WAS crap. Seriously the only 50 song I liked after this album was irregular heartbeat

Good album, his only good album

The best lyrical songs in this album: Many Men, 21 Questions, Don't Push Me, Wanksta

Top 5 all time, maybe nĂºmero uno

42 Graduation - Kanye West
43 Fear of a Black Planet - Public Enemy

This album is overshadowed by "It Takes a nation of millions to hold us back" but it is just as good maybe even better than it's predecessor. - Rambles

44 Donuts - J Dilla

Probably one of the best albums of all time (and my favourite Hip Hop album)

45 Stankonia - Outkast V 1 Comment
46 Greatest Hits - 2Pac

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

47 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

48 Things Fall Apart - The Roots
49 Stillmatic - Nas V 1 Comment
50 Infinite - Eminem

Eminem's first album with the most lyrical songs in it... It should higher

51 Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor - Lupe Fiasco
52 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!

53 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

54 All Eyez on Me - 2pac

Excellent Album

55 The Predator - Ice Cube V 1 Comment
56 Ready to Die - The Notorious B.I.G.
57 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.

58 Blueprint 3 - Jay - Z
59 Atrocity Exhibition - Danny Brown
60 The Black Album - Jay-Z

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