Top Ten Rap Albums with the Best Beats

The Top Ten

Vom Bordstein bis zur Skyline - Bushido

The dark and sinister soundtrack samples along those old school 808s make the entire tone of the music very menacing. Neither in the US nor in Germany I recall any other hip hop record sound as thrilling and dark. No wonder this is Germany's most influental rap album.

Nas' Illmatic, the album which "changed" the way Hip-Hop albums became produced. Pre Illmatic, artists mainly worked on albums with one producer. After Illmatic, artists gathered all the top producers in town to work on albums. - ParasN2000
