"Alphagene" (2007) and "Zuhältertape Vol. 3" (2009)
You know, "Alphagene" has amazing rapping and Kollegah revolutionized lyrical complexitiy in German rap, and it was his first album that caught attention (his third release overall), so it's no wonder that laut.de were completely blown away... but looking at it retrospectively it has mostly cheap beats and production (except for two or three tracks) and underwhelming to bad choruses. "King" and "Zuhältertape Vol. 4", both having 4 stars, would have the deserved the 5 stars more. Alphagene would have deserved 4 stars. The 5 stars for "Zuhältertape Vol. 3" are absolutely justified. Everything about it is great. - Martin_Canine
