Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Black Album - Jay-Z The Black Album - Jay-Z

Is really fantastic it has very many cool songs it must be top 10 not here. Because the songs like dirt off your shoulders or encore or lucifer are excellent

I don't believe this should be considered a top album.

44 AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted - Ice Cube AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted - Ice Cube

One of the best rap albums ever. Political and non apologetic. How is this not higher?

Absolutely should be rated much higher. Ice Cube is one of the greatest.

How is this not higher. Ice cube is a true genius

Ice cube is underrated. This album rules - Sabbath

45 Stillmatic - Nas Stillmatic - Nas

A classic. The debate between stillmatic and the blueprint still goes on to this day. Whether you think stillmatic or the blueprint is better all hip hop fans agree that they're both amazing albums. Classics.

This is Nasir Jones' 2nd best album after Illmatic

46 The Score - The Fugees The Score - The Fugees

The first rap album I ever bought. Great for it's time because it wasn't 100% hip hop, there was a strong reggae element and great acoustic tracks gave it a more widespread appeal. Great album

I just found this album and I can't get enough. It's truly a masterpiece beginning to end

Songs like fu gee la, mask, killing me softly all show the diversity of the group, making it an instant classic

47 Criminal Minded - Boogie Down Productions Criminal Minded - Boogie Down Productions
48 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

What is this album doing here? It is great, but what the hell :')

49 Capital Punishment - Big Punisher Capital Punishment - Big Punisher

This should be way higher pun is had a unique flow like no other, this album is very underrated it definitely should be in the top 50 at least

One of the deadliest flows to ever touch the mic.

50 O.G. Original Gangster - Ice-T O.G. Original Gangster - Ice-T

Ice T was the first Hip Hop I properly LISTENED to and connected to. There is no Cat that is cooler. He REALLY doesn't get the respect that he is due. Dre, Cube and all the rest would tell you, under no illusion that T was the OG, the first ACTUAL Gangster rapper. That's just fact. His flow on this LP is insane. Check out 'fly by' or 'escape from the killing fields'.

51 No Kings - Doomtree No Kings - Doomtree
52 All 6's and 7's - Tech N9ne All 6's and 7's - Tech N9ne

45. Really? Technicians, Am I a Psycho? , he's a Mental Giant, Worldwide Choppers, I Love Music, Food, So Lonely, If I Could, Love me Tomorrow, Mama Nem

I think its not popular enough..

Ceza, Busta, snoop dogg, Lil Wayne, t pain, kendrick lamar, deftones, e40...

53 Tetsuo & Youth - Lupe Fiasco Tetsuo & Youth - Lupe Fiasco

Lupe's best album and my personal fave of 2015

Mural puts this album in the top 50

54 Hello Nasty - Beastie Boys Hello Nasty - Beastie Boys
55 Below the Heavens - Blu & Exile Below the Heavens - Blu & Exile

On of the best albums I've ever hear, regardless of genre

56 2014 Forest Hills Drive - J Cole 2014 Forest Hills Drive - J Cole

Best album of 2014. Every song of beginning to end tells a story. Cole has made some amazing mix tapes but this by far is his best studio album. The album starts off perfectly with January 28th and ends off with one of the most touching songs Cole has ever made with Love Yours. People throw the word Classic around too much these days..but this is a CLASSIC

May not be the greatest hip-album of all time but it is no doubt my favorite. Tells a story all throughout the album and the production is top notch. The album seems to be about the pursuit of happiness. J Cole has, in my opinion, the best flow today and he shows that in this album. I especially love the piano used in this album.

This is one of the greatest albums ever made hands down, when you start one song in this album its will make you want to listen to the entire album.

This is way to low it should easily be top 5 in my eyez

57 Watch the Throne - Jay-Z & Kanye West Watch the Throne - Jay-Z & Kanye West

This album should easily be in the top ten. Jay-Z and Kanye West are two rap heavyweights who combined both of their talents to create one super-album. Time goes by, but Jay and Yeezy never miss a beat.

Only heard one on this album, No church in the wild, but it was very

Underrated by far on of the greatest albums of all time

This album will go down as: legendary

58 Aquemini - Outkast Aquemini - Outkast

Outkast hit an absolute home run with this. The style within was quintessentially southern, but very creative in terms of electronic production, as well. And does a rap duo get better than Andre 3000 and Big Boi? Phenomenal album.

Amazing. This should be the standard by which all southern hip hop albums should aspire to. Amazing album, and rosa parks is one of the best hip hop songs of all time

Not only the best rap album, but one of the best albums of all time. GOAT

This album is absurd top 10 at least

59 Long Live the Kane - Big Daddy Kane Long Live the Kane - Big Daddy Kane

How is such a classic hip hop masterpiece not even on this list? Big Daddy Kane is one of the best to grace the mic. Apparently even the god emcee Rakim refused to go mic to mic with kane.
