Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums
The Contenders: Page 6
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.
Eazy's flow and delivery aren't bad, they are unique. Honestly this album should be at least on top 100s.
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!
This should definitely be higher. One of the First gangsta rap albums to be ever released and a hip hop icon made this. With The help of Ice Cube and Production from Dr.Dre how could this not be a great album. This album has sold Over 2 million albums making it double platinum and it can't even make it in the top 100. With songs like : Eazy Duz It, Eazier Said Than Done, We Want Eazy, Radio, And Nobody Move make it a successV 5 Comments
Great songs in the album but some of the songs are a let down. Best songs are Favorite song and Cocoa Butter Kisses
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.V 2 Comments
Tech nine is one of the best rappers to hit the mic
Sick album, should be in the top ten
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 everV 3 Comments
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.V 4 Comments
An absolute masterpiece of philospphy, wisdom, awareness and reflection. Guru and premier work together like yin and yang.
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 lpV 1 Comment
She deserves a lot more than to be rated 139. This album is tight.
Nice mix of rapping and singingV 2 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
