My Top 100 Hip Hop Albums

Many of you responded to my 100 all time hip hop songs list, and I
appreciate it. The list was based on personal preference, as well as
the songs impact on hip hop culture as a whole. Your responses made me
want to continue the conversation so here is a list of my top 100 hip
hop albums. I get it, it’s the internet, feel free to dissect my list,
hate it, love it, discuss it. But keep in mine it’s a list of MY
favorites, not a list of what should be your favorites. Rather than
spending time being upset if you don’t like it, let it inspire you to
make your own list and share it with me, with your circle of
friends…maybe I missed something or can learn about an album or two.
I look forward to the sharing, enjoy!  Thank you to @chris_zurcher for reminding me about Below the Heavens
