Best Hip Hop Albums

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

62 Licensed to Ill - The Beastie Boys
63 Atrocity Exhibition - Danny Brown
64 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

65 Jealous One's Envy - Fat Joe
66 Curtain Call: The Hits - Eminem

This is a greatest hits album

67 The Massacre - 50 Cent

Much better than Get Rich or Die Trying, it is an explosive party anthem and it deserves to be in the top ten. It had the Best 3rd Week in Hip Hop history. There are 23 songs, of unbelievably good hits like "Candy Shop" and "Just a Lil Bit".

50 Cent was the greatest Hip Hop star of the 2000's. This album wins hands down. It has 22 songs and all of them are pretty good. It also has the top hit Candy Shop.

Get Rich Or Die Trying was so stupid! The massacre thumps, all of 50 Cent's albums, except "Curtis" which has some good songs. But this wins by a landslide!

Wow! This album is so sexy, and it knows how to hit the spot, because its fifty!

Immortal technique is the most underrated music artist.
The top tracks from the album are:
(The tracks are in the order from the best to the worst)
1) the point of no return
2) you never know
3) leaving the past
4) harlem streets
5) the cause of death
6) one remix
7) freedom of speech
8) crossing the boundary
9) obnoxious
10) the 4th branch
11) Peruvian cocaine
12) industrial revolution
13) internally bleeding
14) the message and the money
15) homeland and hip hop
Leaving the past is my favourite track

If you haven't heard this album or Volume 1 LISTEN NOW! Tech is the modern day successor to Public Enemy dropping amazing politically charged bombs

Lyrics make sense and it actually sounds like this guy passed English class

Honestly and logically this is the best album
Tge perfect combination of sound, skill, consciousness

69 The Hard Road - Hilltop Hoods

This rap group are the best with there beautiful music and there skills in Aussie hip hop. It makes me glad to be an Australian and have this beautiful music to listen to and have right at my door step

70 All 6's and 7's - Tech N9ne V 1 Comment
71 Shadyxv - Eminem V 1 Comment
72 King - Kollegah
73 Late Registration - Kanye West

Kanye West best album ever made! It had a lot of amazing hits like Gold Digger and Touch The Sky, along with Hey Mama which is definitely a heart warming song! Features such artists like The Game, Nas, Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco and Jamie Foxx!

The greatest hip hop album ever made! It has all of Kanye's massive hits on here, Gold Digger, Touch the Sky and Diamonds from Sierra Leone ft. Jay-Z!

The greatest hip hop album ever made! Hip Hop is definitely dead now, but Kanye is one of the very few! Who have kept it breathing!

It certainly beats previous work done by most rappers, and itself has made a name in the hip hop industry!

74 Life After Death - Notorious B.I.G.

This is top ten for sure, get these hopeless albums off of here

75 18th Letter - Rakim
76 Below the Heavens - Blu & Exile
77 Damn. - Kendrick Lamar

Fantastic! Just like all of Kendrick's art. Its not Kendrick's best album but I think its worthy of top 20 hip hop albums of all time. He really lets his emotions out and talks about pressing issues facing America in 2017. Kendrick is a creative and lyrical genius.

78 The Art of War - Bone Thugs n Harmony

This in my opinion is their greatest album. A mix of amazing hits and a unique setting, The first disc is called World War 1 and the second World War 2. But its not about that, all the songs are pretty good from this album!

The unique style of Bone Thugs is amazing, the songs of this album are better than all their other albums, and that's what makes it special!

The greatest bone Thugs album, it is better than East 1999! Trust me! It has Thug love with 2Pac If I could teach the world!

79 Nellyville - Nelly

The album debuted at number one on the Billboard charts with 714,000 records sold in its first week and remained in the top spot for 4 weeks. It was also nominated for "Album of the Year" at the 2003 Grammys. The album was certified 6x - platinum by the RIAA on June 9, 2003 and 4x platinum by the CRIA (400,000 copies) in December 2002. Nellyville has gone at least gold or platinum in over 30 countries. All of the big hits are on here: Air Force Ones, #1, Hot In Here and even Pimp Juice! This album is so good!

Nelly is an amazing rapper and this album should be up there will All eyez on me and Illmatic, it made multi platinum and has a lot of mad songs!

Has all my favorite Nelly songs, Pimp Juice, Air Force Ones and even #1 is a good song. It also sold a lot of albums around the world!

It's a shame that this isn't in the top ten, people don't appreciate Nelly and what he has done for the music industry!
