Top Ten Greatest Rap Albums

The Contenders: Page 9

161 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

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

169 Cole World: The Sideline Story - J. Cole Cole World: The Sideline Story - J. Cole

Great album. One of my favorites of all time it displays the art in J. Cole's story telling in a poetic way with catchy hooks and inspirational verses.

172 Still Brazy - YG Still Brazy - YG
173 Big Baby D.R.A.M. - D.R.A.M.
174 Life Goes On - Trae Life Goes On - Trae
175 Blackout! - Method Man & Redman
176 Doctor's Advocate - The Game 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

177 Camp - Childish Gambino Camp - Childish Gambino

I didn't like it at first but it really grew on me after a while, everything is good except "Heartbeat" that song sucks and is way too pop

178 The Last Chair Violinist - South Park Mexican The Last Chair Violinist - South Park Mexican

South park Mexican is a poet. Not only one the greatest Mexican rappers but one of the greatest rappers period. He is extremely underrated (probably due to the fact that he is not African-American) FREE SPM!

179 Full Clip - Gang Starr Full Clip - Gang Starr

A decade of hits made by the lyrical genuis guru and best producer of all time dj premier - QB
