In no particular order...

2Pac- All Eyez on Me Personally I love a rap album with a personal vendetta involved. Pac was on a mission to destroy the competition. I think he did just that with scathing but witty lyrics accompanied by some great production that goes beyond just Dre

Bone: Thugs n Harmony- E. 1999 Eternal An amazing album. The production is awesome with some savagely gritty beats. The BONE boys ride the harmonic waves of gangster violence with ease.; Art of War It was a really really really bad idea for the rappers Twista, Do or Die, and Crucial Conflict (all based in Chicago) to claim Bone stole their style. Their unwarranted claim outraged the rap group and led them to create a 2 disc album which emphasizes the importance of ending the lives of all haters and clones.

50 Cent: Get Rich or Die Tryin; The Massacre It seems that no one wants to admit that they love hardcore/gangster/hubris rap. I guess no one watched and liked Terminator, Rambo, or Die Hard. If you cant laugh outloud atleast 10 times in the first 5 songs then I and your sense of humor are at some serious odss.

Wu Tang Clan- Rza's Greatest Hits Umm every major Wu Tang song or almost. Brooklyn Zoo sounds like a 4 minute freestlye. For those that believe ODB never wrote down lyrics this song is exhibit A.

Eminem- Marshall Mathers LPWhile the Slim Shady LP was great it is nowhere near as gritty as this album. Eminem lashes out at critics, family and even fans. This album will solidify anyone as a lifelong fan.

DMX- It's Dark and Hell is Hot; Flesh of My Flesh Blood of My Blood; And Then There Was X If a 50 Cent album is like a Terminator movie then a DMX album is like the Kill Bill. Really textured portrayal of violence and other highly exagerrated tales of hyper aggressive crime. If you want to peak into the mind of a predicate felon listen to these albums. "Got a good heart but this heart can get ugly."

Jadakiss- Kiss Tha Game Goodbye Show Discipline is the only song you need to hear after that its a wrap.

Nas- I Am Yeah Yeah Illmatic was all that blah blah blah. This album has better production and features Scarface, R Kelly, Aaliyah, and Diddy. Can listen to this album all the way through. Love it and I'm not really a Nas fan.

T.I.- Urban Legend; KingTI possibly possesses the most hubris out of all the rappers I know. Word play and flow are second to none. A.S.A.P. is anthem fit for a king

Young Jeezy- Lets Get It: Thug Motivation 101- While not a lyrical wizard Jeezy is a rapper like Scottie Pippen was a basketball player...plays his role to get the job done. This album features amazingly stellar production from a producer named Shawty Redd, his beats crush all beats made by anyone else on this album...and thats saying a lot.

these are essentials. no bull****.
I agree with this man, they are not the first 5 essential albusm to have. But they are all must haves, Dah Shinin, enta da stage and Stress are crazy good. Everything from the Boot Camp Clik goes unnoticed by the mainstream, which is why it's dope.

People enjoy gangster rap, they just like people that are good at it. Tech N9ne, Royce 5'9, the Wu, Big L, Big Pun. The reason 50cent is disliked isn't because he's a gangster rapper it's because he's a talentless ****.

By the way, love your avatar. "Sanity? Sorry, but I don't remember having such a useless thing in the first place!". Legend.

old, but i just noticed it. how lame is it to slap the overrated label on a musician? i would expect more from you satchmo. nas made what is probably the best hip hop album in 94, it isn't overrating it or him to call it one of the best ever--that's just the way it is. and gtfo with lazy ass 'overrated' replies. louis armstrong is overrated. i said it.

Im not sure if I understand what you're saying, are you saying the best rap album released in 1994 was Illmatic or the best Rap album of all time was Illmatic? The former I might be willing to give you (personally I don't think it was the best in 94 but I can understand why some would rate it like that) but if it's the latter then you're just plain crazy.
