Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Welcome to Compton - Kendrick Lamar
142 Go:od Am - Mac Miller

An album that embodies change and becoming what you're meant to be

Best album 2015 and top 50 all time. I have respect for the classics but they're dominating this list too much. New stuff is GO:OD also, especially this album.

143 Special Effects - Tech N9ne

Tech's Best Album Since Everready. With Crazy tracks like Aw Yeah? , Lacrimosa, Speedom and Burn it Down, there is no reason for this album not being on this list.

144 Blank Face LP - Schoolboy Q V 1 Comment
145 God Loves Ugly - Atmosphere
146 Lupe Fiasco's The Cool - Lupe Fiasco

This album has epic songs and they aren't about the crap that most rappers rap about. This album is a classic and Lupe should be getting way more recognition. There is a storyline or saga of Michael Young History also known as 'The Cool'. No other album has a storyline and Lupe is an epic storyteller. This album is just a piece of literature, that's why it's not as popular, most of the mainstream junkies would probably be in a relapse if they even try to comprehend what Lupe is saying. Too bad he ain't gonna 'Dumb It Down' for you. Lupe, just keep doing what you do. You are what hip hop has been missing since 2pac died. Keep it going!

All songs are great, no filler. Not only is this one of the best hip hop albums, but this is one of the greatest albums in music.

Lupe should have 3 albums in the top 100.

147 Shock of the Hour - Mc Ren

One of the most underrated album ever made.

148 Zakhar Nameh - ZedBazi V 2 Comments
149 Because the Internet - Childish Gambino

Great album - texturally brilliant and a true work of musical art. Production quality is amazing.

The music wasn't enough, Gambino decided to throw a full screenplay along with this album!

This album is always on repeat at my house

150 Check Your Head - Beastie Boys V 1 Comment
151 If You're Reading This It's Too Late - Drake

This has to be higher, drake exploded after this

152 Slaughterhouse - Slaughterhouse
153 The 18th Letter - Rakim V 1 Comment
154 Dr. Octagonecologyst - Dr. Octagon

This is, by far, the weirdest hip-hop album I've ever listened to. Kool Keith/Dr. Octagon is an eccentric lyricist, who more often than not makes my skin crawl (in the best way) on this album, and his almost complete lack of rhymes should be concerning, but given the intense vinyl scratching, the unique instrumentation, and the sheer hilarity of it all, yeah, this is a 9/10, check it out. - WonkeyDude98

This is probably one of the most bizzare hip hop albums of all time, if not the most bizzare one. It's lack of rhyming scheme and non sequitur lyrics would usually give it a low rating...if it weren't for the abstract production and incredible scratching. - ArchAces

155 Fight With Tools by Flobots
156 Yo! Bum Rush the Show - Public Enemy
157 Deltron 3030 - Deltron 3030 V 2 Comments
158 Incredibad - The Lonely Island V 1 Comment
159 I Am... - Nas
160 1992 - The Game
