Most Underrated Hip-hop Albums of All TimeChris-1 All those classic great albums like illmatic and paid in full dont count as this is underrated not greatest.
The Top Ten
It's only underrated if you think Lupe is a good constructionist of lyrics.
He's not. - Satire
How can you underrate an album that gave us "beautiful". People actually never try to understand what a person is going thru. M sorry for people who always want the best.
Just listen to the song "BEAUTIFUL" I am sure you all will love it such a masterpiece it is and you will never get tired of it. Such an inspirational song
This is given loads of hate compared to his other albums, even from the man himself but there were some beauties on this album especially Beautiful and Crack A Bottle. Also 3AM, Stay Wide Awake, Old Time's Sake and Deja Vu deserve credit but I can see why the accents put people off this album.
I love this album so much! So underrated! But what's weird is I think that "Beautiful" is not the best song on the album. It's actually kind of corny. I think songs like Insane, Old Times Sake, Medicine Ball, Crack a Bottle, Elevator (Refill) and Deja Vu are better. Although "Beautiful" is still a great song. The entire album is pretty awesome though.V 11 Comments
I don't see how all these albums that are clearly NOT underrated are on this list. Relapse, Stillmatic, and The 18th Letter? They've all gotten their fair share of recognition and critical success (well, somewhat for Relapse). Infinite however, was released 19 years ago, sold less than 1,000 copies, still is relatively unknown, and didn't do so well with the critics. But, it's a great album and (in my opinion) one of Eminem's best. - Lasvegasxavier
Infinite is actually very good, the lyrics are unbelievable!
Hands Down, most underrated album
It has wordplay to match the marshall mathers LPV 2 Comments
Great album, but not underrated.
Not underrated but not overrated ether but good album
Stillmatic is Nas' second best album behind Illmatic. Better than all of Jay-z and eminem's albums
Stillmatic is better than all Jay-Z albums except RD,Blueprint and Black album. This album, Em's infinite and relapse are the underrated supposed to be classicsV 1 Comment
This was lyrically his best album. People don't understand he nearly completely killed all of the tracks on the album. How can anyone say this album wasn't awesome after listening to this masterpiece?
When Im Flowin has to be one of the greatest rap songs of all time!
An underrated album from a criminally underrated rapper. - arbeZameniC
This is a very underrated lp.Its top 100 hands down. - Chris-1
This album is topclass! No further comments
Clever, creative lyrics and beats.
It's almost embarassing that people would put an album (relapse) on here because it had ONE good song. Sure, Beautiful is great but it can't alone make an overall mediocre album great. Eminem's last good album was The Eminem Show.
I'm a huge eminem's fan, but Infinite and Relapse are not underrated. Revolutionary? Yes it is, because in this album most of the songs are good and tops with Dancing With The Devil ( underrated ).
Dare you say relapse only had one good song that is beautiful. The rhymes schemes on relapse are untouchable

Hot record really slept on. Should be in the 30-40 greatest hip-hop albums of all time list but usually gets left much lower by people. - Chris-1
These cat's know how to spit. 2nd only to Outkast in the south. - NeHiVikingsV 1 Comment
Royce is underrated so as Eminem so as bad meets evil
Most of juvenile's albums are underrated, especially reality check. They say juvenile is, "too regional". Jazz originated in new orleans too. Can you imagine if it had been dismissed as "too regional"?
Lots of underrated southern rap albums.There are those overrated ones like tha carter 3 but the south has some good stuff. - Chris-1
Fort Minor is sick! Love all the songs and its unfortunate most people never heard it. Also lp is good
Almost everyone I talk to has never heard of this.Thats a crime this is a classic top 100 lp. - Chris-1
I was surprised at how good freeways debut was it is a near-classic album. - Chris-1
I'm surprised this isn't #1 because most people think it's not his best album and some of these tracks have a message in them and a few tell a story. 8/10
People think recovery sucks even though he has 2 extremely popular songs: love the way you lie and not afraid
Recovery is unappreciated and underrated
Overrated, only good song is Not AfraidV 3 Comments
the whole album is so dope - numetalhead
This is a pure classic.. I promise you wont be dissapointed! - djphilgood3
I was impressed with Will's versality on this album.. It wasnt just party tracks but songs with a message.. One of my favorites!
Most People Don�'t know even know him, One Of The Greats In Rap History.
Good album, but how in the world is this underrated?
In my opinion Big L is the second best rapper to ever live, right after Tupac - KrazzyMaddV 1 Comment
Experimental hip-hop from one of MF DOOM's many nicknames. I conider it a underground classic. Totally mental beats, wicked lyrics!
Best Album from most underrated rapper of the world!
Great album, but this is underrated. Actually, hmm... I guess it is underrated.V 1 Comment
Awesome songs, The haters just suck. Fly, Right Thru Me, Your Love are awesome meaningful songs. Unlike Stupid Hoe, Starships.
I like the album but I wouldn't include it on this list, because it is more of a pop than a hip hop album. Underrated nevertheless. - Martin_CanineV 2 Comments
