I don't know alot about hiphop, but I really like these albums:

J Dilla - Donuts
MF Doom - Doomsday
MF Doom - Mm.. Food
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
Madvillain - Madvillainy

I think MF Doom is a genius.

Yo I don't know what other people have posted for you, but not only are these some albums that are good for getting into, but these are some albums that should not be missed! They may not be strictly hip hop mind you! I don't have much to say bout the albums, but I'll try & say something.. Don't let me deter you!!! They're gooood! :O :O :P

This is in NO particular order

1. Boogiemonsters: Riders Of The Storm - The Underwater Album
- Such a great album coming outta the G-funk era. LOTS of christian overtones in the lyrics, don't let that stop you though! Although I highly suggest this album, I don't suggest God Sound..
*** Favorite song: Old Man Jacob's Well - It made me re-listen to the entire album!

2. Apathy: Where's YOUR Album?
- Not an oldie, but a goody! Vocals sound a LITTLE odd to me, makes me wonder what (mic) he recorded with often. Slightly odd, & mostly up-beat beats. Uses samples from rock songs. (White Stripes/Marilyn Manson)
*** Favorite Song: Doe For Clothes - I can never let the hook go by without TRYING to flow along, usually I'm not fast enough. Easy to relate to!

3. MF Doom: Operation Doomsday - Ridiculous rhymes! Endless references! Dozens of samples! A themed album!
***Favorite Song: TIE!!! Doomsday / Rhymes Like Dimes / I Hear Voices - Just listen.

4. Notorious B.I.G. : Ready To Die - I really didn't want to put something as extremely familiar/common/popular as this, but there's a reason it's so popular. You can listen to it from start to finish.
***Favorite Song: N/A - It's way too hard..

5. Cosmic Slop Shop: Da Family - 1996 good hip hop produced by Mike Mosley of Steady Mobbin Records & Rick Rock "The King Of Slaps." Rick Rock, Doonie Baby, & Big Lurch. Rick & Doonie do the Hyphy group The Federation now & Lurch is in jail for life. Very good beats & cool group, the lyric styling of the three are very different.
***Favorite Song: Twizms - Big Lurch's only solo song on the track, very cool vocals. Lurch makes you think he's flowing slow but when you try to follow him you realize it's really quite fast. Awesome beat. An impossible combination: A laid-back crunk.

I really do hope you check each and every one of these out, I'm a rap nerd. I dig deep. This is some stuff that I think you would really like if you are trying to get into the genres.

The only album you really must hear, study and cherish, is Biggie: Ready 2 Die.

Once you've done that, you can go anywhere you want.

If you're limiting it to just 5 albums, then I would suggest 5 that really cover as much as possible in terms of what true hip hop is.

With that in mind I'll say...

Masta Ace - Disposable Arts
Masta Ace - A Long Hot Summer
2Pac - The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
Nas - Illmatic
One Be Lo - S.O.N.A.G.R.A.M.

Stuff like Daily Operation by Gang Starr, Waterworld by Leak Bros., Below the Heavens by Blu & Exile, etc. would be good things to check out as well.

i'm not really sure what's the truest definition of hip-hop, but personally i view it as mainstream pop but more on rnb and rap. so here goes my list:

5. Destiny's Child's Writings On The Wall




4. Mary J. Blige's No More Drama



3. Christina Aguilera's Stripped



2. Alicia Keys' Songs In A Minor



1. Mariah Carey's Emancipation of Mimi
