Best Rap Albums of the 2010scameo510
The Top Ten
Yes this was the perfect album of the 2010's decade this album was better than all of the other hip-hop albums hell even all music genre albums of the 2010's decade. Kendrick ruled 100% no doubt about it.
I love Em, but To pimp a butterfly is way better than Recovery
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.
This is masterpiece through the entire thing. 11/10 - AlphaQV 17 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
Bleh, it’s pretty excellent. 8/10 - AlphaQV 7 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
Production, lyrics, themes... Beyond perfection.
I’d call this Kanye’s most ambitious project to date. Not his best but it’s still really good. 8/10 - AlphaQV 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
Not that bad. 7/10 - AlphaQV 6 Comments
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 project
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
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
This Should be higher than 10. Wet dreamz, GOMD, No Role Modelz, Fire Squad, Apparently, Tale of Two Citiez, Love Yourz, all great songsV 3 Comments
Ghetto Symphony and angels two of my favorite songs on this masterpiece
Was R cali on this album?
Top Songs: F***** Problems, 1Train, Peso
A$AP Rocky put together a great project with this album. F***** Problems was one of the best songs of the year. 1Train featured great rappers including Kendrick Lamar and Danny Brown. - cameo510
This is probably an unpopular opinion that will get me jumped someday…but ‘F*ckin Problems’ is one of the best songs of the year. - AlphaQ
Listen to this and you will put it above all except maybe GKMC
Top Songs: Terrorist Threats, Pineal Gland, Soulo Ho3 - cameo510
One of the best albums of all time, should be top 5 at least. - m18230
13!? It needs top 5 at least - Iggyxxc
On point the whole album, no skippable tracks at all.
Top 5 albums of all time.
The best comeback album in hip-hop history!
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 5
Possible one of the most underrated albums ever just because his other work is so good
Higher up please.
Not his best work, but that doesn't mean it's anything less than great 👍V 2 Comments
Simply the best rap album of this decade... Had every emotion in it
Should be top 10
Comeback of the best rapper alive (and ever)
Love game dutty tuneV 1 Comment
Don't really count this as a rap album, it's a perfect mixture of rap and R&B but I think it's top 5 albums of all time. Drake was ahead of his time with this one.
Probably one of the best rap albums of this decade.
Easily the best experimental hip-hop album from this decade. The whole album is amazing, with interesting and quotable lyrics, songwriting that depicts depression and addiction very vividly, and beats that are completely original and set up the songs' tones perfectly. Definitely underappreciated, though Danny's voice surely contributes to that.
Really?! Recovery over this?!
This is an amazing rapper, colliding with an amazing producer. Need I say more?
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.
Work out is his 3rd best song behind No role models and GOMD
Oi, this is on here twice mate! - AlphaQ
This was Logic's most ambitious album, it had a really creative and imaginative story it should at least beat kanye's album dark twisted fantasy.
Amazing Album, from one of the best - boblewhak
Damn Jay Rock Is so slept on people will look back at this album and say it was a classic
Top Songs: All My Life, Follow me Home, Say Wassup - cameo510
This will be #1 soon mark my words - Terao11
Marking Terao11's words
Lmao me too marking those word my nibba
So much better than Kendrick.
Kollegah swallowed an encyclopedia, shook it and threw it back up. I never heard an album with more complex use of homophones and multisyllabic rhyming. And those orchestra-like beats are god like. - Martin_Canine
'AK' I'm Wandschrank" or"Alpha" are better than every fake amercian song. His lyrics are better. No one can reach his level.
Despite the greatness of this album... Kollegah isn't exactly authentic either. His lyrical ability is what makes his music great, not his credibility. - Martin_Canine
Can't believe this wasn't even on this to begin with. There isn't a bad song off this album. Although, I am glad to see M.A.A.D. city over Recovery. - AlteredState
Nah, it’s not that good. Had some decency but overall I didn’t enjoy goblin. - AlphaQ
His best album
