Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 6

101 2Pac: Greatest Hits - 2Pac

Pac is a great rapper and this is his greatest hits, why isn't this higher?!?!?

Two Pac is the greatest rapper of all time, lyrical energy style swagg intelligence even stage presentation...

102 The Waters - Mick Jenkins

Oh my god I nearly lost it when I saw The Water[s] is even on this list. I cannot stress enough how underrated and slept on this mixtape is. Mick's flow is so smooth yet powerful, the message is incredible, and the instrumentals OHHH MY GODDD. The way this project makes you feel as though you are literally submerged in water is the most incredible part, please just give this a chance. It is so so so good.

103 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

104 Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version - Ol' Dirty Bastard
105 Knock Madness - Hopsin
106 Da Roach - Dope D.O.D.
107 Branded - Dope D.O.D.
108 Eazy Duz It - Eazy E

Eazy's flow and delivery aren't bad, they are unique. Honestly this album should be at least on top 100s.

Respect brotha!

It isn't the greatest rap album and the flows aren't that good, but it still is the origin of gangsta rap, so you can say it's epic. It's made by the Godfather of Gangsta Rap too

Eazy's flow and style aren't bad, they are unique and great!

Respect brotha!

109 Section.80 - Kendrick Lamar

Really stupid that this is so low because it's so much better than mad city (I love them both though)

It's a joke that this classic is anywhere beyond top 15

This is top ten. Why is it so low here.

Most underrated album ever

110 Better Dayz - 2Pac
111 Everready: The Religion - Tech N9ne

Tech nine is one of the best rappers to hit the mic

Sick album, should be in the top ten

112 Moment of Truth - Gang Starr

Best Gang Starr album and easily one of the best hip hop albums of all time

An absolute masterpiece of philospphy, wisdom, awareness and reflection. Guru and premier work together like yin and yang.

113 Hell: The Sequel

One of my favorite rap albums of all time - WillWords

So good like one of Eminem best albums

A good album, but just can't compete with the Eminem show, slim shady lp or marshall mathers lp

114 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

115 The Incredible True Story - Logic

One of the realest rappers in a while, he puts this album together in such away that you feel immersed in this universe he puts you in. His writing and flow is too good to be placed this low

Probably one of the most underrated rapper/story teller coming into the game today. The way he paints pictures makes me reminisce about the first time I heard nas' illmatic

Get this album, plug your phone into some speakers in your room, lay down on your bed, and listen from start to finish.

Deepest stuff being written in any genre right now. Prod also great.

116 Legends Never Die - R.A. the Rugged Man
117 O.N.I.F.C. - Wiz Khalifa
118 The Adventures of Bobby Ray Jr. - B.O.B
119 God's Son - Nas

Man this should be farther up the list

Illmatic is my favorite album. Godson was awesome as well. As a matter of fact all Nas's albums were great. I'm not in to hip-pop like Eminem and Jay-z. I don't think either of them suck I just feel Nas is better.
