Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Encore - Eminem

I do like mockingbird and toy soldiers but apart from that, its cheesy the main tracks are just lose it and ass like that. Just not as good,

Disappointing given his last 3 bomb albums

242 Apocalypse 91 The Enemy Strikes Back - Public Enemy

Every track on this album is a masterpiece performed with amazing flow and effort. Not to mention that the final track featuring Anthrax single-handedly started a whole new genre of music. - arbeZameniC

243 Tha Carter II - Lil Wayne

This is my #2 favorite album it's so underrated and so chilled with such a difference through the songs from hustler musik to fireman and shooter plus get over great album so dope it's a classic

Lil Wayne the best rapper in the world

245 Blackout! 2 - Method Man & Redman
246 The Rising Tied - Fort Minor

I think this should be on the list cause its REAL RAP! it talks about real life! not just smoking weed and banging girls! there is even a song on this album that disses all the other rappers! and the songs on here are from his experience! And... ITS MIKE SHINODA! you gotta love mike shinoda!

Very good and real. Every song is great. Shinoda is a beast

Love this album to death. The guys flow is one of the best out there

247 Lupe Fiasco's Food Liquor - Lupe Fiasco

Great album. In my mind the best work of Lupe and I think at least top ten, maybe higher. He better not be retiring any time soon. I would be pretty upset.

How is this not even top 10

Most underrated

Easily on of the best rap albums to come up out in the 00s

249 Infinite - Eminem

Eminem's first album ever.

Birth of a legend! Pay respect!

Best album in my opinion

Although most of the content on the album cannot compare to MMLP, SSLP and The Eminem Show, I think lyrically, there are some pretty amazing songs on this album.

Take the song "Infinite" for example. The beat is slightly lacking, but put that aside ain't listen to the lyrics:

"Aiyyo, my pen and paper cause a chain reaction
To get your brain relaxin', the zany actin' maniac in action
A brainiac in fact, son, you mainly lack attraction
You look insanely wack when just a fraction of my tracks run" - Eminem

Even if you don't know the rhythms, speak that out and listen to how intense the rhyme scheme is.

Also, this random underground artist that I've never heard on anything called Eye-Kyu else appears on "313", arguably the best song on the album. This is one of the few instances where Eminem has a guest artist and get's bested.

"Everything that you collaborate I lacerate
My rhymes they keep coming
Like ...more - Totalbeasto001

250 Relapse - Eminem

HUGELY underrated. The accent isn't even that bad, and the rhyming is insane.

I actually really love this album! Old Times Sake is such a great song off this album.

When Pink Friday Encore Macklemore The Carter Iv among others are above this masterpiece, we have a problem. Not number 1, but top 40 realistically and top 5 in my own biased opinion.

How is it underrated many people like it so d many people like Eminem well I don't he sounds like somebody mastiburting

251 D12 World - D12

Come on people, do you even have a mind?! This needs to be higher than this and devils night should be above this! #D12 RULES!

252 Ghetto D - Master P
253 Southernunderground - Cunninlynguists
254 2Pacalypse Now - Tupac V 1 Comment
255 The Great Depression - DMX
256 Paid Tha Cost to Be Da Boss - Snoop Dogg
257 Detox - Dr. Dre

He has even said this isn't coming out to please stop asking about it his final work was "compton" and what a great album that was it was very good

This list is officially stupid

This album hasn't even came out so I don't know why it's listed

258 Adrenaline Rush - Twista
259 Take Care - Drake


should b in the top 5. The lyrical content, the love songs and the beats. Underrated just because he sings too. YOU rank 2 Chainz 100 places ahead of this guy! It's emotional and awesome

Should be in top 10. This has best lyrics and beats. A and people hate on drake because he sings. They don't know what music is

This should be higher it's drake's best album
