I know everyone's done these but fuck it. Anyways, for the 100 songs it's strictly rap and for the 100 albums it is all genres.

For both of these lists I could care less how critically acclaimed the albums or songs are, there impact on music as a whole, the time period that they were created in, or anything of that nature.

My mindstate for these lists were if I could only listen to 100 rap songs or 100 albums for the rest of my life, which ones would I pick. I also thought about the impact or story that goes with them for me, so even though "The Scene Aesthetic" is a roughly created, unrecognized, acoustic guitar album the times where the album made my day better set it apart for me.

No drama, all 100 at once because no one really cares about a 600 post members lists

we have the same favorite album :h5:
I remember maybe my second time listening to it, thinking that it just might be the best album I had ever heard. And yeah, it just sticks. Beautiful stories with substance, and every bar on every track is on point. And I won't even start on the production

Well at least people here have respect for the instrumental. Altho I dont agree with F&L and The Cool over some of those albums, its good to see the respect they deserve.

I'll never get how y'all make a list of 100 albums.

Get Rich or Die Tryin' is in a spot I wouldn't of guessed. Never understood how he out did Young Buck on a southern beat.

It used to be my favorite album, good deal of Eminem stannery back in the day to be honest... So, that one's one of those that I just had to put in the list for my younger self. Also Mockingbird, Spend Some Time, and Like Toy Soldiers will always be some favorites of mine.

Still probably placed a good 25-30 spots too high
