Years after Illmatic dropped, Nas said in an interveiw that he couldn't even beleive some of the sh*t he spit on that record. NOw thats some sh*t right there. And to go along with the best street/gritty/New York style rhymes ever layed down, were some of the best beats, from the best producers on the planet.
Its pretty safe to say that your favourite artists, favourite album, is probably Illmatic
It did not change the genre as much as Public Enemy

^^^first off, you would have to be a retard to not think that Illmatic changed the game more then PE. We are talking about how it affected the music in later years, not Popular Culture...and second off, the title of the thread is "The Best Hip Hop Albums", not "What albums Changed Hip Hop The Most" if you want to discuss that, make another thread. Illmatic is on a totally different level,,,if you dont agree, check your ears

^ i dont think i can argue with that man, i need to check more of these albums out. right im going shopping after xmas. but yerr i have a few tunes off illmatic but i need the whole thing, so in all faireness is houldnt comment whether thats better or not, but saying that out of the list tribe just hits mer straight away, hip-hop isnt my forte it isnt my main genre and when i first getting into it i got that tribe album and it blew me away just the way tip Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Phife combines just got to me and the beats in it aswell. i just really like q tips flow and the same with muhammad and phife, just their styles seem unique.

also no ones voted for de la aswell, they would probs be my second choice, 3 feet high and rising is what hip-hop is about its true and has some good tunes on it, the tune buddy with tip on it is the best and seeing it is coming from the late 80s its is still widely reconised as a good album.

again from what ive heard id have put some wu tang in there, i listened enter the 36 chambers again the other day for the first time in ages and its there best i think, ive got 3 of there albums and i think that was their best.

^ You really need to buy Illmatic. Essential hip hop. For this poll, I have to go with PE - It Takes A Nation Of Millions.

Eric and Rakim- Paid in full without a doubt. Atmosphere lp Lucy Ford is one hell of a dope album! I was surprised not to see that on there!

get Method Man- Tical, Low End Theory and Midnight Marauders- Tribe Called Quest, and The Main Ingrediant and Mecca and The Soul Brother- Pete Rock and CL Smooth. CL Smooth is actually a beast on the mic
