    What about carter 4 ? Too this day it's one of He best albums in hip hop
    I don't think it'd appeal to me if those others didn't. honestly, jay z is an artist my *mum* likes (she even saw him live) so of course I might have some bias deeply rooted within me against him

    some grime is actually quite decent, I won't lie. but yeah, I don't think chief keef writes good lyrics
    Yeah lyrically he's a bit meh. But from where he's from people like him because of his lyrics which are quite dark and violent

    ok my rundown of best rap albums:


    (No order)


    Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

    Quite literally a masterpiece, in my opinion this is a top ten album of all time in any genre. Everything from the introspective lyrics, to the gorgeous production (pun intended) make for a work sonic perfection. Not mention CyHi stole the album with that incredible So Appalled verse. The outro to Runaway is the greatest piece of music ever in my opinion.

    Favourite songs: Devil in a new Dress, Runaway, Dark Fantasy, Monster, So Appalled, Lost in the World, All of the Lights, Power



    Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt

    An incredible display of intellect, wit, wisdom and lyricism from THE greatest rapper of all time. In his magnum opus work, he blends seamless, smooth flows over some incredible, sprawling, primarily piano driven beats. There's simply not a bad song on this record, and his incredible lyrics and delivery on D'Evils could move a man to tears.

    Favourite songs - D'Evils, Dead Presidents II, Feelin' it, Can't Knock the Hustle, 22 Two's, Can I live, Brooklyn's Finest.



    Kanye West - Late Registration


    My favourite album of all time, hands down, no doubt. Kanye's best record is undoubtedly a top five album ever made, regardless of genre. Kanye expands on his soul-sample production he exercised in The College Dropout and takes it further by working with composer and producer Jon Brion, who adds incredible string sections to the albums' already perfect production. To top it off, Ye is at his most lyrical, dropping endless quotables, song after song. The feature list is also sublime, there's not one bad guest verse on the entire album.


    Favourite songs: All of them




    Madvillain (Madlib and MF DOOM) - Madvillainy

    When a top five rap producer gets in the studio with the greatest lyricist of all time, you get a truly classic result.
    Madvillainy is a total lyrical onslaught over Madlib's incredible borderline experimental sample-based production. MF DOOM mostly raps from a third person perspective, giving us insight into the life of the illest villain. Note that this album contains the most lyrical track ever; Figaro. The entire album follows a strong basis on short, to the point songs, which are extremely radio un-friendly.

    Favourite songs: All caps, Figaro, Shadows of Tomorrow, Accordion, Rhinestone Cowboy, Meat Grinder, America's Most Blunted


    Common - Be

    Common's Be is the most underrated album of the 2000's, a decade dominated by Kanye, Jay and Weezy, common brings us a refreshing, quiet storm album produced by Kanye West and the greatest producer of all time, J Dilla (RIP).
    Common brings us consistent concious bars over incredible production, and with features from Kanye and John Legend delivers a beautiful, relaxing album.

    Favourite songs: Love is..., Go!. They Say..., It's Your World, Pt 1&2, Faithful, Testify



    J Dilla - Donuts

    In Dilla's final release three days before his death, the goat producer brings the best instrumental album of all time, which he made almost entirely on his death bed. Dilla flips soul, rock and classical musical samples into heaven with incredible beat changes and intricate sampling skills.


    Favourite songs: Mash, Anti-American Graffiti, U-Love, Light my Fire, Don't Cry, Two Can Win, Dilla Says Go, One For Ghost, Last Donut of the Night, Time: Donut of the Heart, The Diff'rence
