Default The Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album of All-Time?

I'm not talking about what album sold the most. I'm not talking about what album was the most groundbreaking, or culturaly significant.

I'm talking about if you could only listen to ONE Rap/Hip-hop Album for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

My choice?



I've been listening to this album for about 15 years now, and it's still my favorite Album. The perfect combination of dope beats, sick lyrics, and ghetto storytelling.

Illmatic is one of the best albums period. No matter what genre of music we talking about, Illmatic is unbelievable album. Nas was Soulja Boy's age when he made Illmatic too.
