I really can't name just 10 since hip hop has been around and is so diverse that there are way more than 10 albums that have significant meaning to me and that I consider perfect. I have trouble even naming my favorite 10 MCs at this point so only naming 10 albums is gonna mean ignoring some that are easily top spots for me

Let's put it this way, here's a list:

36 Chambers
Wu-Tang Forever
Cuban Linx
College Dropout
Graduation
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
808s and Heartbreak
Chronic
Doggystyle
Death Certificate

That's only 5 artists total and a very small slice of what I consider GOAT albums

But all 10 of those are albums that I never get tired of, can listen to anytime (other than 808s which is strictly a winter album) and that will forever be favorites of mine

Here's another list:

Quality
TM101
Teflon Don
How I Got Over
Black Album
B. Coming
Purple Haze
Loso's Way
The Unseen
Lord Willin

Those are just from the last 15 years.

That's 20 albums right there and I named nothing from the 80s including nothing from one of my all time favorites (Kane) and nothing from Nas, PE, Tribe, Scarface or many other greats.

I've been around too long to narrow any list down to just 10 albums but I think if anything that just speaks to how great the culture is and how much it's grown over time

You think that's hard, try putting together your ten favorite hip hop songs.

...it's a nightmare.

1. Protect Ya Neck (Wu Tang)
2. Triumph (Wu Tang)
3. Nas Is Like (Nas)
4. Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (Gza)
5. Straight Outta Compton (NWA)
6. Da Art of Storytellin (Outkast)
7. Nuthin But a G Thang (Dr. Dre)
8. Today Was a Good Day (Ice Cube)
9. The What (Biggie Smalls)
10. Take It In Blood (Nas)

I found a used copy of this in a record shop the other day.

The first time I've ever seen it in a store.

It's my white whale.

Been playing the shit out of it the last four days.

So it's not technically from the 90s.

...shut up!

Music To Driveby by Compton's Most Wanted

That opening track, Hit The Floor, gets me amped up to this day and my interest in hip hop has long since waned. The album is solid from start to finish

I'm apt to argue, given how I remember most people treating the entire label/company like a joke, that Master P's No Limit Records had more than a couple masterworks by its stable of artists who were constantly making Guest Spot-heavy tracks to sort of promote other artists' upcoming records.

Some which I don't think ever saw the light of day; most tragically 2-4-1 who were featured on both Mean Green-Major Players Compilation ('98/9/29; track #14) and Mac's Shellshocked album ('98/7/21; track #17).


Mia-X's Unlady Like ('97/6/24) is maybe screaming the loudest to be heard, for the obvious reasons.

Mystikal's Unpredictable ('97/11/11) still strikes me as one of the label's most impressive offerings.

Fiend's There's One in Every Family ('98/5/5) leaves me with no words. So I won't try.

Master P's Ghetto D ('97/9/2) has the label's most effortlessly mammoth, monumental production.


and... from there, it's fair to say several albums came close.
With a higher volume of hits among what I might proclaim are fewer misses:

Magic - Sky's the Limit ('98/9/15)
Mercedes - Rear End ('99/6/29)
Big Ed - The Assassin ('98/9/1)
Mac - Shell Shocked ('98/7/21)
Foolish (Soundtrack album) ('99/3/23)

That run of No Limit releases was dope. Mac "Shell Shocked" is underrated. That Mia X album you listed is fire. Lot of great stuff came from that label
