TOP 10 RAP/HIP HOP ALBUMS OF ALL TIME

10.) TRU - TRU 2 THE GAME


Master P, Silk the Shocker, and C-Murder...Da Down South Hustlers and the West Coast Bad Boyz had this masterpiece bumpin in every car in 1997.

HOT TRACK: "POP GOES MY 9"






09.) THE FUGEES - THE SCORE

Lauren Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras bring forth a strong Hip-Hop album hitting on racial profiling with pop/doo-wop undertones playing throughout.

HOT TRACK: "READY OR NOT"






08.) THREE 6 MAFIA – CHAPTER 2: WORLD DOMINATION

Long before they won an Oscar they pumped out this classic that had every club torn up.

HOT TRACK: "TEAR DA CLUB UP '97"







07.) DR. DRE – THE CHRONIC


A rap classic, nuff said.


HOT TRACK: "FUCK WIT DRE DAY"






06.) N.E.R.D - IN SEARCH OF...

Sounds I've never heard, a nostalgic headbreaker...got more salt than a shaker. No One Ever Really Dies.


HOT TRACK: "BRAIN"






05.) BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY – E 1999 ETERNAL

The only rap album to make me cry...I mean, what...I mean brag about being shot. Yeah.


HOT TRACK: "CROSSROAD"







4.) Wu Tang Clan – ENTER THE WU-TANG (36 CHAMBERS)

With great rapper after rapper on this album, it's hard not to have this in the top five. Gza, Rza, ODB RIP, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, and U-God. C'mon.

HOT TRACK: WU-TANG CLAN AIN'T NUTHING TA F' WIT





3.) A TRIBE CALLED QUEST – THE LOW END THEORY


"One of the closest and most brilliant fusions of jazz atmosphere and hip
-hop attitude ever recorded." -allmusic.com


HOT TRACK: "CHECK THE RHIME"






2.) 2 PAC – ALL EYEZ ON ME

The best album from the greatest rapper of all time. Prolific and perfect throughout. I want him and Nick Drake back.



HOT TRACK: "I AIN'T MAD AT CHA"




1.) OUTKAST – AQUEMINI

Born in the ATL, I had to put this at number one. Andre 3000 and Big Boi find that perfect mix between southern rap and the experimential music they have now fallen into. I can listen to this album at any time of the day, anytime of the year, and I will still swing my shoulders all the same. A-TOWN!


HOT TRACK: "SKEW IT ON THE BAR-B"
