Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 8

141 King - T.I.

What you know about that? This album was just great

King is the greatest rap album of all time because T.I. is creative. He spits some sick lyrics and can diss anyone cleary stated. King of the South!

142 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

143 Welcome to Compton - Kendrick Lamar
144 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.

145 Blank Face LP - Schoolboy Q V 1 Comment
146 God Loves Ugly - Atmosphere
147 The 18th Letter - Rakim V 1 Comment
148 Atrocity Exhibition - Danny Brown

Best hip hop album of 2016 in my opinion

149 Coloring Book - Chance the Rapper
150 Critical Beatdown - Ultramagnetic McS

This is pure hip hop at its best.

151 Evermore: Art of Duality - The Underachievers

Amazing beats, great lyrics, impeccable flow,... - Melvin_BigSmoke_Harris

152 Doctor's Advocate - The Game

Really this album is a credit to the streets and is probably the last gangsta rap album that has gotten up there

153 8 Mile Soundtrack

Em, nas, 50, all go hard here. Rabbit Run is one of the best Em songs ever

154 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.

155 Violent by Design - Jedi Mind Tricks

Heavily underrated album, Stoupe and Vinnie both produce some of the finest tracks of the decade, if not all time.

156 Earl - Earl Sweatshirt

This album is definitely top 10.
You're an idiot if you think 2Chainz is better than Earl.

This is the modern day Illmatic. This should most definitely be in the 50s

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

This has to be higher, drake exploded after this
