  1. I must say I dont agree with some of the albums up here and listing – to mention a few, which may have maybe slipped you mind when compiling the list – but here goes :
    Nas – Stillmatic is top 5
    Joe Budden – Mood Muzik 2 and 3 are up there too
    Talib Kweli – The beautiful struggle
    Eminem – Marshall Mathers LP
    Tupac – Better Days
    Nas – Lost Tapes
    Talib Kweli – Quality
    Twista – Kamikaze
    just off the top of my head….i know some of em seem commercial (like Twista) but its no different from 50’s get rich, in my opinion.
    Good look on the Elzhi – Europass (love that album)..
    might also wanna look at J.Cole – Warm, Nas – Nigger (classic), Somobe, Kenn Starr, Poe Picasso…..
    good list though – every album worth it – but just i think some may not make top 50 – in my opinion – not because they bad, but because there are some better.
