Best Rap Albums of the 21st Century
The Top Ten
Say what you will about Eminem in more recent times but in 2000 he was epic.
Definitely the best rap album of the whole century, and there wont be a better hip hop album than this one.
Best Eminem album listening to it right now
Simply the best
This album is amazing. The beats and lyrics are incredible and themes on this album are varied and interesting.
This album was inspired by illmatic
Best album I know since dre chronicles
Kills every other album on this list
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. - WonkeyDude98
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
one of eminems greatest
Songs in this album were just AMAZING
To me, better than MMLP, Straight Outta Compton, and Ready to die. This breathed life back into hip hop
Greatest Rap album ever. One of the best albums in any genre of music. Should be first.
The best Hip-Hop album of the 21st century, by some margin too.
Should Be number 1
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
It was epic like my vape #betterthanmmlp #betterthanillmatic
Best Kanye West album I've listened to
One of the best albums to come out of Memphis, as well as southern rap albums period. The production and rapping is on point for almost the entire album, and most of the songs are classics that you can play over and over without ever getting tired of.
Develops into the best of the West Coast in 21st century thanks to great beats and influential rapping
He's the Game Changer
It's a disgrace that GKMC and Kanye's overrated trash is higher than this.
Best lil wayne album by far, and this was when wayne was ruled the game.
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.
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.
Better than most of these easily
This the goat
Perfect album 0 skips
