Best Rap Albums Of All Time 37-40
37 - It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot by DMX (1998)
DMX was raps biggest superstar during the late 90’s, and It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot made him worthy of that title. Hits on top of hits and unmatched aggression helped push the hardcore sub-genre of hip-hop to new heights.
38 - Piñata by Freddie Gibbs x Madlib (2014)
What was an interesting collaboration to say the least at the time of its arrival. Madlib’s soulful beats paired with gangsta expertise, Freddie Gibbs turned out to be one of the best rap albums of the decade. Pair two spectacular artists together and the sky’s the limit.
39 - We Got It From Here... Thank You 4 Your Service by A Tribe Called Quest (2016)
When Tribe’s final album was announced, it seemed as it wasn’t a great time. While intriguing, Phife Dawg had recently passed away, and we hadn’t seen an album in two decades. Instead of a mediocre album with a dated sound, we got a modern classic with every member sharp as ever. Easily the greatest comeback ever in hip-hop.
40 - The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick by Slick Rick (1988)
The og storyteller, Slick Rick changed how we thought about rap in the late 80’s. An artist that has been sampled hundreds of times, Slick Rick, is one of the most influential artists of all time. - 5 hours ago
