sorting my itunes by year my favorite hiphop albums from 2000-2008 are

Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele

The Diplomats - Diplomatic Immunity

Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury

Cormega - The True Meaning

Madvillain - Madvillainy

El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead

Lil' Wayne - Tha Carter

I think those are all worth a listen atleast.

There is little argument in my books:

1. Supreme Clientele

2. The Fix

3. Purple Haze

4. Hell Hath No Fury

5. Da Drought 3 (mixtape)

To me, these represent the best albums in terms of consistency.

Honourable mentions: MMLP, SBXXX/Love Below, Black on Both Sides (though really a nineties album in terms of sound), all the other Ghostface LPs, Carter 3 sessions, Lord Willin', The None Higher remix tapes, all the T.I albums except for TI vs. Tip, Don't Quit Your Day Job, the Kanye Albums, prettty much everything Wayne has touched since 2005, The Dungeon Family album, Blueprint, Hip Hop Is Dead, all the MF Doom shit, and Prodigy's HNIC/Return of the Mac.

Anyone mentioning Food and Liquor don't know shit. Sure this shit is taste-based, but even those mixtapes he released before are better that mediocrity.

I disagree just because the HHNF beats are so amazing, and because Ab and Sandman come so weak on Vol. 2

thanks for all the responses so far... just curious in relation to the kanye albums... i havent listened to any of them but know the singles from most of them...

is late registration generally regarded better than the college dropout?

I think so, people seem to say that but honestly I listened to that CD the least.

Hocus, I love Cam but I don't see Purple Haze making the list but I guess it's a better album looking back then it was when it came out. 'cause when it released I'd heard half of it already.

^^ Thats a bad fucking list bro, i understand that people who don't know shit about rap or life in general like Eminem, but the MM LP was fucking awful. I can maybe understand the Slim Shady LP cos that was his best shit by far. (still not a fan of Em though)

The Lox - We Are the Streets

Jadakiss - Kiss the Game Goodbye

Styles P - Gangster and a Gentleman

Nas - Stillmatic

Jay-z - Black Album/Blueprint

thread over.

(also good is Scarface - the fix, Shyne - Shyne, ghostface - supreme clientelle, I liked Aziatic and AWOL some might not tho but thats cause AZ is too over ya heads)

MMLP was the beginning of Eminem's dive into the god awful fucking sub genre of rap he created. The only comparisons i could make after that was with Limp Bizkit and other god forsaken acts that didn't really fall into a certain catagory.

He was all over alternative radio stations, especially in Detroit. Then became real popular on the cheesy radio stations that always played club songs. Then I puked.

Slim Shady LP had some nasty lyrics tho, he reminded me of a white Canibus

true x2

but i've never been that impressed with the lesser half of the re-up

and malice and pusha are more on point on vol 2

just an opinion; hell hath no fury is still a beast of a record

you could maybe make the case for both in a top 5...

HA!!! Did NOT expect to see such a gutter list on SuFu...breath of fuckin' fresh air. Although I can't cosign Kiss' first album...none of his albums actually. He's always had solid joints...but they lacked when compared to something as consistent as Face's "The Fix" or "We Are The STreets."

My street twist (shit that hasn't been mentioned yet..."The Fix" and "We Are The Streets" would be on here otherwise):

-Ghostface "Fishscale" ("Supreme Clientele" is A+, but was mentioned)

-Prodigy "HNIC" (re-mention/reminder cause it's that great)

-Styles P "Super Gangster Extraordinary Gentleman" ("Gangster N Gentleman" was mentioned)

-Cam'ron "SDE" (I'd argue that this was his best...but "Come Home With Me" was solid/consistent as well...just not AS angry...still had some hunger left though. Plus he was laced with real producers like Just Blaze, Kanye West, Ty Fyffe (all who gave birth to the Heatmakerz whole style).

-Either State Property 1 or 2 or Beanie Sigel "The Reason"/"B.Coming" (yes I like all of those better than "The Truth")

For sleeper of the year: G-Dep "Child Of The Ghetto" (yep Bad Boy Records...Dep to me was nicer than Shyne...though both Shyne and Dep albums had crazy joints on each of their first albums...and second in Shyne's case...Puff tried to fuck it up, but even his corniness in the background couldn't fade 'em)

Of course Jay-Z's "Blueprint"...but that ain't quite on the same level of gutterness as the above mentioned...still incredible work though.

It is apparent that we have some young posters here. No hate...just a sign of the times.

Not at all. Those are just the ones which popped up in my head. I can name a few more like the following:

Sheek Louch - Walk with me

T.I - King

To be honest, most of the "albums" I listen to are mixtapes since a couple of my favorite rappers don't get too many record deals. Other's I listen to is Joe Budden who is the most underrated rapper on the planet. The stuff he's been putting out the latest 2-3 years is amazing. Jae Millz, Clipse Red Cafe, Stack Bundles, Jim Jones, A-Team, Hell Rell are a few of the other rappers I enjoy listening to.

So I'm not some kid just listening to what some of you oldies perceive to be "mainstream" rubbish.
