We’ve been working on a list of the Top 15 Hip-Hop Albums Of All Time for the past month now. We put together our own list of picks, but then decided it’d be better if we got opinions from other folks.

So we polled hundreds of people from across the country, and asked them for their top picks. We used that data to help build the list you see before you. We know this list won’t please everyone, and that’s bound to happen with something objective like this.

We think this list represents the best hip-hop albums, and we’d love to hear what you think!

  1. 2Pac – Me Against The World
  2. The Notorious B.I.G – Life After Death
  3. Dr. Dre – The Chronic
  4. Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP

  6. Jay-Z – Vol. 2, Hard Knock Life
