Thats a pretty good collection ATL. I would suggest checking out Binary Star and Big L at least from the 50 albums I listed.

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

I'm starting to think Blueprint is better than Reasonable Doubt...but I like that list.

What's notably missing is 93 Til Infinity...one of the best albums ever lyrically...have you checked that out?

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

I have been favoring Blueprint to Reasonable Doubt for a while. To be honest I favor whichever one I listen to but both are great, great albums and Hov is probably my most listened to artist as of late.



No I havent checked out '93 til infinity but i'll check that out ASAP and i'll report back.

My teacher actually got me into PE. He was in college back when It takes a nation was released and our class got to listen to some of it when we were working on assignments and things. Then I downloaded yo bum rush the show, It takes a nation, and fear of a black planet and I gotta admit all 3 were great listens. I probaby haven't listened to any PE in a few weeks but i'll have to get back into it sometime soon.


As for Criminal Minded I went through a bunch of online lists looking for the best rappers, hip hop acts ever about a year or two ago when I really got into this and KRS One was a constant on almost every list. So I got the BDP stuff and return of the boom bap and became a fan of his music, although it took a while to get into it. "The Bridge Is Over" is one of my favorite tracks of all time of criminal minded.

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

I forgot Doe or Die, a couple of them are more homer picks for Michigan Hip-Hop but they are worthy of being mentioned. I'll probably revise this list at a later date.

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

93 'til Infinity may crack the top 10 whenever I get around to getting 50 in order. I have been playing that for the past few days non-stop. Thanks for bringing that to my attention Dre.

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

I'm not a huge fan of the second half of the blackstar album. Probably won't crack the top ten.


I think Masters of the Universe may be as good as any hip-hop album I have heard. If you haven't heard it do yourself a favor and check it out.

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

Great list. My quick thoughts...

1) Raising Hell and Stillmatic would be higher (for my list)
2) No Chitlin Circuit 1.5? I LOVE Little Brother, that's their best work IMO.
3) No ATLiens!?!?

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

I haven't checked out Chitlin Circuit 1.5 but I will get on that ASAP. I prefer Aquemini to ATLiens which is why I put it up there.
