Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Below the Heavens - Blu & Exile

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

62 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

64 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.

76 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.

78 Uneven Compromise - Lil Ugly Mane

This may just consist of only two real songs, but these two songs are unlike anything rap has to offer.

79 Hip Hop Is Dead - Nas

Nas is my favorite artist, but even I'll admit that this album was not that good. - TheMusicNerd

80 Step In the Arena - Gang Starr

A quintessential DJ Premier and Guru album. As a lyricist, Guru's rhymes are timeless, and DJ Premier's production is on point like always.
