The Top Ten
Young, fun, refreshing, poppy but still pure hip hop, no gangsta gimmick, no feuds, light hearted, talented, energetic yet still kind of laid back - Eko Fresh's debut album was pure joy in rap music. Even though it was commercially successful, it was initially dismissed because in 2002 when it was released, hardcore rap and gangsta rap just started in Germany and was regarded as a new level of quality compared to 90s pop rap music.

PS: Okay, due to my best friend being an Eko Fresh expert and huge fan, I now know that the 1.0 album was only a limited and rare release available in a special shop. The 2.0 album was widely released. - Martin_Canine
