Default best hip-hop albums of the 00s?

what would be your choices?

'college dropout' gets a mention from me, and 'blueprint' does as well. 'stankonia' is definitely a top choice of mine, so is 'speakerboxxx/love below'. 'the marshall mathers LP' is also one of the better albums of the decade. UGK's 'underground kingz' was another album full of great material and really underrated imo. from the same year 'below the heavens' was pretty damn good, but i wouldn't say on the level of any of the albums mentioned here. the best imo would have to be scarface's 'the fix', that was truly a masterpiece. i still bump that album heavily and it only gets better with each listen.

it's been a pretty 'weak' era for hip-hop albums
