Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

What? This should be at least top 20

62 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.

63 Ill Communication - Beastie Boys
64 Running On Air - Bliss N Eso
65 The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill - Lauryn Hill

She deserves a lot more than to be rated 139. This album is tight.

Nice mix of rapping and singing

101? Damn Y'all trippin...

NO WAY THIS HAS TO BE IN 20 - RackumFrackum

66 Operation: Doomsday - MF Doom
67 Flying Colours - Bliss N Eso
68 Compton - Dr. Dre

A lot of Dre fans felt torn when this album came out. They don't approve of Compton because it's not like what Dre used to make. Let me get this out: I do not give a single damn how much Dre's music has changed. Compton is THE sickest album of 2015. This is coming from a fan of music, not a fan of Dre. We have legendary artists on board, all who took incredible advantage of their verses.

Kendrick Lamar just gave me chills every time he took the mic, and he's at his absolute greatest in Deep Water. Jon Connor undoubtedly tears the hell out of his verse in For the Love of Money. Ice Cube kill it in Issues. Eminem just lets everything out and destroys everything in Medicine Man. Then we got Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, The Game (who pretty much had his own song on the album but it bangs hard), Justus, BJ the Chicago Kid, Anderson.Paak, Candace Pillay, King Mez... man it's all-star cast on this SINGLE album!

What about Dre's music production? You can't deny it: the rhythms to this ...more - Mcgillacuddy

I don't know if it had the potential to be high up since it just came out, but come on when's the next time you're gonna have Dre, Em, Kendrick, Snoop, ice cube, the game and xzibit all on one album?.. Legendary.

The amount of great rappers on this album is incredible. Top to bottom one of the best albums in the last 10 years. Classic

70 Paul's Boutique - The Beastie Boys

No. 60? really shows how little people know about hip hop nowadays

Seriously? 2nd greatest rap album EVER. A masterpiece.

71 808s & Heartbreak - Kanye West

I love Kanye, but this album was pretty bad

This album was fire. Paved the way to artists like Drake etc.

75 Freedom of Speech... Just Watch What You Say - Ice-T
76 The Blueprint 3 - Jay-Z
77 Curtain Call: The Hits - Eminem

Greatest hits albums do not count - Sabbath

Like kinda right greatest hits albums kinda don't count but when I'm gone is so good I will make an exception

Great album, with great songs. If you like Jay-Z better than Eminem, than you should listen to this album. This album will change your mind about that.

It also has only the best rap song ever

78 Fear of a Black Planet - Public Enemy

Contends for the most densely produced and greatest uses of samples of all time. Conscious lyrics, fantastic delivery, socially responsible.P.E. 's peak in my opinion.
