Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums
The Contenders: Page 5
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.
I just bought this album the other day and The Game absolutely kills it. He's got some awesome beats and clever lyrics. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a rap album.
In my opinion the best after illmatic. Probably the most underrated rap album of all time with great production from Dre.
Rise of the west coast... again.
This album should be much higher on the list! The songs were meaningful and thoughtfully put together. I still remember sitting down and listening to the whole album like one would watch a movie. It's a piece of art.
This album is honestly so underrated front to back there is no bad track and it tells a story, has a message, and has kickass beats and flows. One of my favorite albums of all time and my favorite psychedelic rap album. Should be at least in the top 50!
Deep intrespective story. Sick flow. Real message. Meaningful lyrics. Great album
keep ya head up, I get around, holla if ya hear me,
A true classic it is one of his most underrated albums with the song: papaz song, keep ya head up, last wordz, streets R death row and much more (in my opinion better then AEOM)
Truly a beautiful storyline. I wish people would appreciate this album more. Also the song things fall apart I have cried because of how much it is relatable.
Amazing album from the dog, really underrated to! People should respect his style more, amazing Hardcore-Rap, nice lyrics, flow, beats, gotta respect the dog!
DMX is still to this day the only artist of ANY genre to release two #1 solo albums in the same year. This album is at a minimum top 10 and brought rap back to the east coast.
Still my favorite rap album after all these years.
I don't know why this isn't higher. This makes my top five along with Mobb Deep The Infamous, and Get Rich or Die Tryin. His other albums trail close behind- I think "And then There was X," was his best selling album. Mid to late 90's was the best time for hip-hop and rap. All the stuff released in the last ten years is kinda wack. I've grown to like A$AP Ferg though.V 2 Comments

Disrespectful to have this masterpiece so low. Have we forgotten about Outkast?
How is this 136th, should be top 10 easy!V 2 Comments
Should be top 20 at least! - Hiphop101
Great rap album, and surprisingly optimistic as well.
This should be top 20 to be honestV 1 Comment
AZ is the most underrated artist of all time in my opinion. He has made some of the best hip hop tracks and albums of all time and he still isn't very popular. He also made one of the best hip hop verses of all time in Life's a Bitch. - TheMusicNerdV 2 Comments
