If a top 10 list of GOAT hip hop albums was made up only of....

Albums by white rappers, female rappers and rappers from outside the US (not including Slick Rick), what albums would make the list?


Yeah Mech, that can go in.

    3rd Bass - Cactus Album

    Bahamadia - Kollage

    Lauryn Hill – Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

    Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP

    Brother Ali – Shadows on the Sun

    Skinnyman – Council Estate of Mind

    Foreign Beggars – Asylum Speakers

    Task Force – One of the Music from the Corner Series

    Pegz – Capricorn Cat

    Delta – The Lostralian

    I also agree with Mech on the two Digable Planets Ones.

    Source(s): Edit-Haha Good Looking Out Kevin D How'd we forget the Beastie Boys I agree with their first two LPs as well. Edit2-This is a great question Bonnie as there are plenty of others worthy to go in the list as well. What about Scottish Hip Hop anything good to check out there.
  • 1. Licensed to Ill - Beastie Boys

    2. Ill Communication - Beastie Boys

    3. Paul's Boutique - Beastie Boys

    4. Hello Nasty - Beastie Boys

    5. Black Reign - Queen Latifah

    6. Lyte as a Rock - MC Lyte

    7. The Cactus Album - 3rd Bass

    8. All Hail the Queen - Queen Latifah

    9. Under Construction - Missy Elliott

    10. Symphony in Effect - Maestro Fresh Wes (Canadian rapper)

    EDIT: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is not a hip hop album in my opinion.

    EDIT (2): Are Digable Planets qualifying because of one female rapper? If so you can stick both their albums in my top 10.

    Source(s): I have to admit I haven't heard alot of UK or Aussie hip hop. Also I'm not a fan of Eminem hence the reason why none of his albums are listed.

  • OK here goes, get ready for greatness

    1)When Life Gives You Lemons-Atmosphere makes number one. If you listen to the whole album you'll get why

    2)Felt:Tribute to Christina

    3)Felt: Tribute to Lisa Bonet-These two albums are the BEST callabo's ever (one of them is black sorry)

    4)MC Lyte got some great stuff out but her best album is def. Bad as I wanna Be

    5)MC Duke-Return of the Dread-I

    6) and 7) I'll give to Eminem. You pick the album. He's got some good stuff out, but all his albums got at least one whack song on them. My favs would be Encore and Marshal Mathers LP but his old stuff was better than the new stuff. He's got some amazing mixtapes.

    8) goes to Missy cuz she deserves to be on here for her early stuff. Album Da Real World

    9) give it up to Aesop Rock and album Float

    10)Swollen Members-Bad Dreams
