41 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!

46 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

47 Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor - Lupe Fiasco
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 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!

51 All Eyez on Me - 2pac
52 Ready to Die - The Notorious B.I.G.
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

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 The Rising Tied - Fort Minor

Oh my god. Didn't expect this to be here but I'm so glad people actually realize the fact that mike is so much more than Linkin Park. This album is just pure genius. I'm a huge fan of Linkin Park but this made me specially fall in love with mike.

Mixture of sophisticated and deep equivocal rap lyrics with unique differentiated beats. I loved this album, it's one of those you can never tire from. It proves to show that not only does a rappers lyrical skill matter but the message too and there was a message behind every song perfectly explained.

Fort Minor's the rising tied is one of my favorite hip hop albums. The beats are mixed with musical genius and mike shinoda is a awesome rapper. Also I enjoy lp's new Living Things album

Most underrated album of all time
