An absolute masterpiece you can hear Kanye evolve from trying to be the good guy rapper who raps on soft soulful beats to accepting the fact that he has become villain everyone hates and begins to rap on more moody beats talking about money and his ego
An understated masterpiece. People fail to realize the effect this album has has on hip hop culture, and even more so the homage it pays to the MUSIC community through its intricate production/samples and pop culture references.
This album was music at its recent finest. The title track was perfect! The album was like a rap version of Prince purple rain album
Why is Recovery here? That was a terrible album, it was pop music. This is the greatest rap album of the 21st century by far.
So it was terrible BECAUSE it was pop music? Yeah, your credibility ends there. - WonkeyDude986 Comments
This album allows you to have the ability to have one solid run-through and have every track be amazing.
Til I Collapse, without me its really an incredible album
Eminem in his prime

Absolute masterpiece6 Comments
Jay-Z is generally overrated but this album is amazing nonetheless, not the best of the century though, Kendrick is better
It's very simple.. This is the blueprint. Of rap music. This is how it should be done. This is HOV at his very best. The best rap album by the best rapper ever, is it even a question?
It was epic like my JUUL vape
Are you kidding me, this is his worst album ever. It might be better if he hadn't used his Arab voice but cause if that it sucks
It was epic like my vape #betterthanmmlp #betterthanillmatic
Best Kanye West album I've listened to
Develops into the best of the West Coast in 21st century thanks to great beats and influential rapping
He's the Game Changer - Subhojit_roy50
It's a disgrace that GKMC and Kanye's overrated trash is higher than this. - DaWyteNight
Best lil wayne album by far, and this was when wayne was ruled the game.
This album sucks, the carter 2 was his best album not this. - DaWyteNight
Blueprint 3 was trash. - DaWyteNight
Perfect album 0 skips
Honestly one of the greatest pieces of hip-hop legend. Shows J Cole as an individual artist who can tell a story so well in an album that flows from start to finish with not a single rhyme out of place.
This the goat
Better than most of these easily1 Comment
This is a grammy nominated album from one of the most underrated rappers in the world. The combination of rapping and singing work out amazingly on the tracks. There are also 3 top 10 singles on this one album along with features from T.I, Bruno Mars and Eminem.
This album IS the most creative rap album of all time. I did not see the genius, coming fromonths a lot of great albums (Illmatic, 36 chambers, ME against the world, To pimp a butterfly)
I had seen a lot of complex rhymes, which I love. Then I listen to the songs and realized in about 8 of them, he isn't being abstract. I learn something every time I listen to it,really fun album
Underrated and not far off MMLP1
Better than the first one
How the hell is mbdtf higher than Kanye's actual good albums like this? - DaWyteNight
Recovery is top 5 and this is number 16? Bye guys
Where are the Eminem albums
