Not really a pure Hip Hop album, but more a crossover effort that mixes up genres, this album is included in this list nonetheless because it has that ‘Hip Hop feel’. Political, conscious, smart (maybe somewhat preachy) lyrics over experimental, innovative and genre-crossing production – a wholly enjoyable and important early 90s album, which would be higher on this list if music in general, not just Hip Hop was considered.

This list provides a guide to the most important hip hop albums, as determined by their presence on compiled lists of significant albums: see the "Lists consulted" section for full details. Inclusion on a list is indicated by numbering after each release. The brief accompanying notes offer an explanation as to why each album has been considered important. The organization of the list is by date of release, ranging from Run-D. s eponymous debut in 1984 to Jay-Z's 2001 album, The Blueprint.

Hip-hop had started out as an art form consisting primarily of singles, most notably Sugar Hill Records’ sky-blue releases. It made LL a worldwide star and Rubin one of hip-hop’s hottest producers. It was an album that would foreshadow all that Rubin was to do with that stripped-down sound, from the stark speed metal of Slayer’s Reign in Blood to the Beastie Boys’ rock-sample-rich Licensed to Ill to the radically reduced sound of Johnny Cash’s late-career opuses. Rubin’s work with the Beastie Boys, which would peak the following year, seems inevitable in hindsight.

Hip-hop gives listeners sets of rules that you follow like the law, only to see them change every five years. I’ve seen my reactions to hip-hop change from age nine ( What the hell was that? ) to age 14 ( That was incredible! ) to age 22 ( Wait. are they allowed to do that? ) to age 29 ( It was kinda different when I was a kid ) to now ( What the fuck was that?! ). I’ve seen Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby go from ruling the world to being a musical pariah to being an ironic statement in my DJ set that makes people smile. The best hip-hop songs aren’t blueprints – they are calls to action, reminders that you can start a revolution in three minutes. Non-album single, 1980. Nearly 10 minutes and God knows how many bars of exhortations and boasts, sprawling across a hopped-up disco beat. Doug Wimbish’s bass breakdown is as funky as anything this side of Bootsy Collins.

Hip-hop in 1988 was a misogynistic place. MC Lyte's debut, "Lyte as a Rock," helped usher in a wave of skilled, confident rappers who just happened to be women. And "How's It Goin' Down" with Faith Evans showed this dog wasn't all bark. 76. of 100. Eminem: 'The Slim Shady LP'. Aftermath. A 24-year-old bleached-blond rapper from Detroit wasn't anyone's image of a hip-hop artist at the turn of the decade. But once Eminem opened his mouth, no one could question his skill. East Coast hip-hop was a competitive space in the '90s, and Mobb's first album, "Juvenile Hell," flew under the radar. In 1995, Havoc and Prodigy made huge creative leaps with "The Infamous. With Havoc serving up hardbody beats and Prodigy thrilling listeners with cinematic crime rap, "The Infamous" became one of the most influential gangsta rap albums.

A classic album in hardcore hip-hop. The entire album was almost completely produced by Havoc and Prodigy themselves. Nas, Raekwon and Ghostface Killa are all featured on the album. Poetic and gritty lyrics with cool beats and dissonant sampling makes this album an essential 90’s hip-hop classic. This album gives me chills even after the twentieth time I’ve listened to it. 9.
