One Love
Halftime.

This album just oozes perfection.

3 Ready To Die - Biggie Smalls
4 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A

6 Paid In Full - Eric B. & Rakim
7 Reasonable Doubt - Jay-Z
8 Doggystyle - Snoop Dogg
9 Good Kid M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar
10 The Slim Shady Lp - Eminem

This is not his debut idiots

This is not his debut. His debut is called "Infinite"

It's a great album, just not his debut.

Come on this deserves more votes! It's a classic for god sake. Rock bottom, role model, my name is. Enough said.. Needs more votes.
