Wow they had Jay 9th after only 3 or 4 albums?(i don't know if this was released before or after Vol. 3 was released) in which only 2 were above average?(RD and Vol. 1) and one was horrible?(vol. 3)

Damn, well most rappers don't release albums as good as RD though.

Method Man and Nas should've been higher in my opinion. And Pac should be at least in the top 5, but overall a great top.

Edit: And why the hell Guru isn't even on the list?!

Interesting list

Nas at 15 just shows how far he had dropped in peoples eyes, makes ether all the more amazing.

LL at 5 is funny after 10 years of dropping average to trash albums he gone way down imo

Damn, Q-Tip is low on there. As is GZA.

I'm surprised by how high Jay is because most of the top ten is shockingly conservative.

I don't think the top 10 is that conservative, there is really just 5 rappers in the top ten that released most of their content in the 80's, which would be Kane, Rakim, LL, KRS, Kool G. But it certainly comes from a conservative standpoint. Though I'd argue that the inclusion of BIG and Jay after four albums between them in total up to that point is a bit of a reach.

Its interesting to see the 11 year old list, I'm sure most people's personal lists would be substantially different today.
