top 3 hip hop albums

Recommended Posts

1. it takes a nation of millions to hold us back- Public Enemy.

If you dont know why this is #1 you need to just go out and buy it, listen to it, and then imagine you were back in 1988. thats all that needs to be said

2. Criminal Minded- B.D.P.

Once upon a time, it was a new thing to hear James Brown samples. it was new to hear someone saying something in a song. it was new to get your ass handed to you by some kid from the shelter. KRS, Scott LaRock, D-Nice made these things standard. This album made it harder to put out a dope record, you had to be able to compete, and not many can, even still.

3. Low End Theory- A Tribe Called Quest

perfect album. everything is in place here. tribe set out to create a good record, and changed the way that we look at hip hop forever. great listen begining to end, and still sounds fresh 14 years later

Its very heartening to see that supertalkers know real hip-hop.......not hip-pop

I see some amazing albums and I agree with many. So hard to choose

three out of the thousands of great albums.

Honestly though, if someone even mentioned eminem, 50 cent, etc. I would've been pissedicon_smile.gif

Top three Albums for me

1. De la is Dead - De la Soul

I'm a big de la fan

2. Things Fall Apart - The roots

3. 36 chambers - wu tang

I know there are a lot more albums considered "the greats"....but these three

albums were the ones that really sparked my interest in hip hop

Depht...
