    That's right... of ALL TIME


    I'd have to say for #1, it'd be Aquemini by OutKast. Just a perfect album from beginning to end. Instrumentals were just great, and Dre(Andre 3000) and Big Boi rhymed wickedly from beginning to end.

    Some Runner-Ups:
    The Chronic- Dr. Dre
    Me Against the World- 2Pac
    Illmatic- Nas
    Ready to Die- Notorious B.I.G.
    Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)- Wu-Tang Clan
    Doggystyle- Snoop Doggy Dogg
    Infinite- Eminem

      Not too familiar with the hiphop scene but my favourites would be De La Soul - Three Feet High and Rising and Pete Philly & Perquisite - Mindstate. Both are more ventures into Jazz-hop however.

                        The Love Below - Andre 3000
                        Just so people know, this was apart of Speakerboxxx/ The Love Below by OutKast. It was a Double LP where both members split and made their own albums. Speakerboxxx was Big Boi's LP while The Love Below was Andre 3000's Side. Personally, I didn't like it compared to earlier OutKast albums like Aquemini.

                        Edit: I've also noticed that many people have put Marshall Mathers LP for one of their favorite Eminem Albums, it's my second favorite, but still a true classic.

                                  If you've never listened to this and you are a hip-hop fan, you owe it yourself. This album's swag level is 1,000 million

                                  Plus their videos kicked ass

                                    Hard to say my favorite hip hop album but one of my favorites is No More Greener Grasses by The Grouch & Eligh. Its a good album that I have alot of good memories with. Here, take a listen...
