What do you think of this list of the top hip hop albums of all time?

Top 100 hip hop albums of all time:


This list is a weighted average of everyone who has rated these albums, given a certain number of votes. Just like how the IMDB top movies list works. Personally, I think it's probably the best list I've seen for anyone who wants to know what the best hip hop albums are, not just the most popular ones.

Some good rankings to me:

24. The Pharcyde - Bizzare Ride II The Pharcyde (1992)

49. Deltron 3030 (2000)

59. Cunninlynguists - A Piece of Strange (2006)

63. Binary Star - Masters of the Universe (2000)

93. Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow (2002)

94. Nas - The Lost Tapes (2002) (definitely his second best album)



Obviously no one's gonna agree with the order of every ranking, but I do think as a list of classic hip hop albums this is probably the most reliable list, as it includes everything.

Personally, I'd have "One Day It'll All Make Sense", "3rd Eye Vision", "At The Speed of Life" on there. While Fugees' "The Score" is in my top 10 and no where to be seen. But I still think it's the more reliable than any magazine or media ranking.

    I just read 1-100.

    I don't think "36 Chambers" is the best hip-hop album of all time. As generic as this sounds, I think "Illmatic" is.

    Other than that, it's alright.
