Right now it would probably be The Cold Vein - but, like always, that's subject to change. The beats are my favourite of all time, but my lack of enthusiasm for Vordul makes it difficult to have so far up.

Others that are certainly in contention:

Illmatic
Ready to Die
A Prince Among Thieves
ATLiens
Deltron 3030
Haiku d'etat
Southernunderground
2001
Madvillain
Vaudeville Villain
Capital Punishment
Endtroducing
Blackstar

I dont really think there is a clear cut "best" rap album ever but you cant go wrong with any of these.

What I meant was not that I don't listen to their albums first to last, but that I can't listen to their albums first to last. I don't like all of the songs. The only artists who could produce albums for me where I could put on track one and wait for it to get to track one again are Jay, Em, and Wayne. There are Nas songs I like but every album of his has songs that I will never like. No breaking into the song, no giving it a chance, nothing. I can't listen to alot of Nas songs.

I can listen to every Jay, Em and Wayne song. Take that how ever you want to take it.

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

There are really only two possible conclusions to take from that

1. You have incredibly specific taste, limited to your three favourite acts; three very popular, very emulated, and indeed quite different artists. This conclusion seems doubtful, as there are a vast array of artists one would expect you to like, considering your appreciation of the aforementioned three.

2. You don't listen to much rap outside of the artists you mentioned. This makes more sense. And if this is the case, you shouldn't be spewing the absolutist arguments toward which you have quite the tendency.

But what do I care, it's none of my business.

I don't hate Lil Wayne, but I don't like his music. Don't really care about him. But why would you put Carter II in there with those classics? Just look at your post one more time. Now tell me if you still think Carter II belongs in there.

I know a few circles of hip-hop heads that think very highly of Carter II (and III for that matter) but obviously that album was out of place. In fact, Carter III > II.

Yes it was. The Carter III was a decent album, but it is not on the level of Tha Block is Hot.

Kisha
Tha Block Is Hot
F*ck Tha World
Loud Pipes
Respect Us
What Ya Wanna Do

All Banged harder than anything on the Carter III not named A Milli, and A Milli was only hot because of the beat. In fact The Carter III contains no song that would be amongst Weezy's ten best.
