Rap & Hip Hop: Hip Hop DX just released their 'Top 10 Albums of the Decade'?
- CapLv 61 decade agoFavourite answer
It's not bad. It's got some obvious mentions, and some mentions I would have replaced. I can't really fault it. I'm not a huge fan of Hip Hop DX as I feel it goes through different phases of rating albums..some of which don't really seem directly linked to straight up quality.
On another note, This comment has to be a contender for "E-Fail of the week"
"Maybe if you made a list of the best selling rap albums of the 00s it would be more accurate. The best albums usually sell the most."

The 2000's were good. @54: Industry Shakedown had great production. It's high no matter what you base it on. @Rob-O: It's based on votes. You've been voting on it for half a year.

Where's Nas' Stillmatic (2001)? That should have made the list instead of placing The Blueprint with The Black Album. I would put Common's Be (2005) or Kanye's The College Dropout (2004) up there too.
Even 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2003) should have replaced one of those albums.

A decent mix of good mainstream and somewhat underground albums. Everyone is going to have different opinions, but I think they succeeded in making a worthy list.
I agree that combining two Jay-Z albums is not only against the rules but unnecessary. They should have just said the Black Album.

I like alot of older hip hop but if the list is about this decade, then I would have to say Blu & Exile's collaboration needs to be added. That was a great album.Source(s): My opinion
- MechanicalLv 71 decade ago
That's a solid list, but you can't combine The Blueprint and The Black Album into one album, and still name 9 other albums in a top 10.
I'm surprised Food & Liquor didn't make the list. Wasn't Hip Hop DX ejaculating all over the place when that album came out?
- ?ustenLv 51 decade ago
Would someone mind copying/pasting it in here. My school blocked HHDX. (Nazis!)
Eh, I'm not feeling the list. So albums that I feel should be on there before some of those:
Atmosphere - Seven's Travels
Blu & Exile - Below the Heavens
Common - Be
Common - Finding Forever
GZA - Pro Tools
Kanye West - College Dropout
Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor (lmao at Mechanical)
Nas - Stillmatic
Nas - Untitled
Raekwon - OB4CL2 (Maybe)
The Roots - [Any of their last four albums]
Royce da 5'9" - Death is Certain
Talib Kweli - Quality
Most of those are more list worthy than some albums on that list.

I didn't mind it, it was a good blend of albums that i may not agree with compleatly, but i see why they are there. My favorite albums of the decade were missing from it though. I would have had some Lupe, Kanye, common, Nas, Blu, on there but whatever.
- TLC FO LIFELv 61 decade ago
Pretty good, but some more could've been added. I'm glad they put some underground rap albums on there, because most people only recognize mainstream artists. But they don't have Nas, Lupe, Talib, kanye, or common.
