Best Rap Albums of the 2010scameo510
The Top Ten
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This is one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time and Recovery is #2 that's not even rap... To Pimp A Butterfly is art.
Deserves 1. I think Eminem is very talented but his fan base is pissing me off thinking he's the best
I love Em, but To pimp a butterfly is way better than Recovery
This album transcends the mainstream, transcends hip-hop, transcends music, and finds its way into the world of unadulterated art that DKMC didn't. Definitely deserves that top spot.V 7 Comments
He manages to find numerous topics of life in compton to talk about and how they affect him as a person. Another great part about it is he is able to take trips to his childhood, beliefs, and ambitions. Honestly all the songs are great. Surprised section 8.0 wasn't in the top ten. You can see the impact the black hippy crew have had this decade with there elaborate and amazing storytelling.
M.A.A.D City, Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst, Money Trees... Not one bad song on this album
Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst is one of the greatest rap/hip-hop tracks of all time! Phenomenal Album
This site is way too one sided to Eminem lol
At least be grateful that this album has a gap between Recovery. - SwagFlicksV 3 Comments
Every song is amazing, it can get slightly repetitive but the album has no peers except for other Eminem albums.
This album gets more hate than its fair share, considering the depth of lyrical and production fidelity. It is a great album with a great theme of never give up and push on.
This album is amazing I recommend it to anyone in a low point in their life - Idoz2001
My favorite album it's his best oneV 5 Comments
Top Songs: Power, Stronger, All of the Lights
THIS ALBUM IS GOOD BUT DEFINITELY NOT THE BEST OF ALL TIME OKAY! - cameo510
There isn't a single bad track... Why is "Recovery" even on here? - EmperorAguila
Kanye is just a legend. the instrumentation in this album is incredibly, plus kanye was still at his rawwest on this album lyricallyV 1 Comment
This is Kanye's most ambitious project. This album was literally worked on for years, up until the week it was released. Kanye recorded enough songs for this album to fill up 2 full length albums. Kanye recorded and re-recorded verses for this album over and over until the week before it was releases. The list of collaborators on this album is very lengthy and quite impressive. Kanye worked his ass off, and he cut and rearranged so much. Kanye poured HIS SOUL into this album and it boggles my mind how more people don't like it.
Top Songs: Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on the Leaves - cameo510
Why is this on the list. This was Kanye's worst projectV 1 Comment
Top Songs: Born Sinner, Power Trip, Crooked Smile
Another great but underrated album. - cameo510
This should be in top 5. This was the best rap album of 2013
Power trip and trouble are awesome
J cole is great but so underratedV 4 Comments
Ghetto Symphony and angels two of my favorite songs on this masterpieceV 2 Comments
All of J.Cole & Kendrick's albums should be in the top 10. This was the best album of 2014 & J.Cole was just beast on this album.
Best New School Rap Album great Lyrics storytelling and really relatable
This was an incredible solo effort
Double platinum with no featuresV 2 Comments
Top Songs: Written in the Stars, Pass Out, Frisky
This album is so underrated. You just don't see many british artists putting together a great album like this one. Written in the Stars was a hit and so was Frisky. Till I'm Gone featuring Wiz Khalifa was also a great song. - cameo510
Top Songs: can't Get Enough, Work Out, Mr. Nice Watch
Can't Get Enough was a great song and is one of my favorites. Trey Songz makes the hit even better. Work Out is probably one of J Cole's most popular songs. - cameo510
Songs Such as Sideline Story And Breakdown is what made me believe he topped Friday night lights oh can't forget God's Gift
Lost Ones, Lights Please, Nobody's Perfect, Dollar and a Dream 3, and Return of Simba are the best lyrical songs. Can't get enough, Work Out, and Mr. Nice Watch are great hit songs.V 1 Comment
Simply the best rap album of this decade... Had every emotion in it
Comeback of the best rapper alive (and ever)
NOT TOP 10!?!?!?
Eminem, the best rapper made such a comeback with This. THIS IS THE GOAT
Top Songs: Blessed, There He Go
ScHoolboy is my 2nd favorite rapper behind Kendrick Lamar. This album is great, and I think Oxymoron will be better. - cameo510
Very very underrated album. Definitely top 5V 2 Comments
