Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Knock Madness - Hopsin Knock Madness - Hopsin
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 Death Certificate - Ice Cube Death Certificate - Ice Cube
104 Da Roach - Dope D.O.D.
105 Branded - Dope D.O.D.
106 Eazy Duz It - Eazy E 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!

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 success

107 Acid Rap - Chance the Rapper Acid Rap - Chance the Rapper

Great songs in the album but some of the songs are a let down. Best songs are Favorite song and Cocoa Butter Kisses

108 It's Dark and Hell is Hot (DMX) It's Dark and Hell is Hot (DMX)

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.

109 Everready: The Religion - Tech N9ne 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

110 Section.80 - Kendrick Lamar 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

111 The Incredible True Story - Logic 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.

112 Moment of Truth - Gang Starr Moment of Truth - Gang Starr

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

113 Hell: The Sequel 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 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 Legends Never Die - R.A. the Rugged Man Legends Never Die - R.A. the Rugged Man
116 Bridge - Grandmaster Flash Bridge - Grandmaster Flash
117 O.N.I.F.C. - Wiz Khalifa O.N.I.F.C. - Wiz Khalifa
118 God's Son - Nas 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.
