Though 86-89 was probably the best 3 years in hip hop history, I think the 90's was the best decade.

1. Illmatic- Nas
2. Enta Da Stage- Black Moon
3. Reasonable Doubt- Jigga
4. Only Built For Cuban Linx- Raekwon
5. The Infamous- Mobb Deep

Low End Theory- ATCQ

Illmatic- Nas

Operation: Doomsday- MF DOOM

Black Star- Black Star

Black On Both Sides- Mos Def

I don't have a list, but I think Bizarre Ride II deserves a mention, as it will probably get left off of most people's lists.

Enter the Wu - wu tang clan Ready To Die- biggie Black Star- blackstar (mos and talib) Low End Theory- a tribe called quest Illmatic- nas Lots more, but i just went with obvious ones because i'm lazy Not being able to include Straight Outta Compton makes me want to cry though. By far my favorite hip hop album of all time The posters before me should kill themselves for not including the Wu

If I didn't know better, I would think you were joking. I don't understand why you sleep on Mos and Talib.

I very nearly had it on mine. If this were a top six or top seven list, it would have been on there as well as return to the 36 chambers, the dirty version.

Thats right, I like the first ODB solo album more than I like Enter The Wu. Sue me.

The first Wu-Tang is the best hip hop album ever made for me.
I used to like a lot of the Rawkus stuff, Mos Def was pretty good on his first album.
The Jugganots album is one of my favorite too.
Maybe an album by the Roots, not sure of that, I would have to listen to Things Fall Apart again.
Can't think of a fifth one right now.

Ghostface Killah--Supreme Clientele


Probably because Supreme Clientele wasn't an album of the 90's...
