PSA: you can drastically improve the quality of /mu/ by filtering the words "god-tier" and "10/10 albums," and saging in low quality threads
"personal 10/10s" is another good one.
does it really have to be an album.B4DA$$ is pretty good too
not quite god tier but still better than most on this list
im talking to you guys
Not a "real" album, but w/o a doubt an amazing listen front to back. God tier.
there is no way you like every song on there OP. There are 1 or 2 good songs I remember (paranoia was decent) but the majority of the tracks are so shitty
Surely you're just joking OP
On repeat since it came out
not OP, but I really liked Good Ass Intro, Pusha Man, Cocoa Butter Kisses, That's Love, Favourite Song and NaNa and absolutely loved Paranoia and Everybody's Something, I really can't remember a better hip-hop album released since Acid Rap.
but pic rel is my fav
I've listened to this about 10 times through by now. Convinced it gets better every time.
I refuse to listen to something produced by a """black""" guy started literally crying because the greatest hip-hop trio of our time (Death Grips) released an album called "Niggas on the Moon"
any rap made by some tougher niggas?
My unpopular opinion is that this is better than the blueprint.
I'm not a big fan of Logic, but you have to respect Under Pressure. It was by far his best project, and while it's not something I could sit through from start to finish without getting a little bored, individually a lot of the songs on the record are great. I feel like it's the only project he has where most of the songs stand out from each other, and the second half of the title track has *some* of the strongest verses written in a long time.
Fuck off. Also Reasonable Doubt was phenomenal and that's coming from a Jay-Z "hater"
Meme music to the max. It's not bad, but if you ever see interviews with the dude he's so hipster and Childish Gambino-esque. It turned me off of his music, even though I try to not let how artists act/speak affect how I listen to their music.
These are go(o)d too
Colossal is my fucking shit. I have so many of Future's songs on repeat.
Did you guys listen to Purple Reign? I liked it a lot. Perkys Callin and Purple Reign make me feel hard.
Anyway, here's one of my favorites.
Wanna know how I know you dress like pic related
Yes yes yes
I was blown away the first time I heard Come As You Are, Oktane is a monster. Truth Be Told is great too, but CAYA is one of the best projects I've heard this decade.
Same. I honestly think this is the year they blow up. Hit-Boy is coming up big and they did a joint with G-Eazy on their last tape (say what you want about him, but he's a big name) as well as Vince Staples and Isaiah Rashad.
This would easily be Mac's best project if not for the annoy as fuck voice change. I can handle a verse or bridge with that voice every now and then but a whole mixtape of it is unbearable.

I fucking LOVE these albums. Others are good too but there are the top of the top for me. Havent listen to Em in a minute but but it would feel wrong not to add him to this list.
Im not either of those people, but Angry Kid by Jonathan Mathis was easily my favorite album of 2015. better than the staple hip hop album TPAB, and also more psychedelic than the staple psych album, Currents. Stop this dead meme, it went over your head, and you are a hater.
>but Angry Kid by Jonathan Mathis was easily my favorite album of 2015
oh, well then you're fucking retarded
>and you are a hater
and you are an underage fuckface who probably watches pewdiepie
Oh. My. God. Shut. The fuck. Up.
I fuck with this list actually.
The fact that you didn't understand why Angry Kid was so great doesnt make it any less great. It isnt for you, thats fine. But your memes and hate should be put into something positive and constructive.
>you are underage
And you are annoying as fuck.
yall sleepin on the dopest white boy to come oouut of nebraska
Listened to this A LOT last year. Each time had a new favorite song.
THE BLIND STARE OF A MILLIONS PAIRS OF EYES
For real man there's so many good songs on this album that nobody listens to. The first time I listened to it front to back I was amazed at how much good shit I had been missing just listening to the biggest tracks
>listening to this on vinyl and seeing it slowly rotate as Fuck Wit Dre Day begins
Better than porn.
I think it's a little underrated but still one of his more popular songs. imo Skandalouz and Wonda Why They Call You Bitch are the two most underrated on that album. Heartz of Men 'Pac fuckin goes in maybe his best verse.
And if you haven't listened to If I Die 2Nite do that asap, easily the best example of alliteration in rap ever.
Just started my vinyl collection the other day man. I'm a broke ass college sophomore so I was trying not to spend money on vinyls but I walked by a record store and couldn't help myself. Ended up blowing $60 on Dilla's Donuts, GKMC, and B4.DA.$$
Allow me to help you correct that idiotic statement.
Its true in some cases. For example Scarface is one of the most unappreciated hiphop legends who's overtly acclaimed and appreciated by hiphop artists, but fails to get the same recognition by music publications.
>MFW people unironically enjoy the "music" of Childish Gambino in 2016
Future isn't a good rapper, he's a good artist. Future is really good to have in the background when you're playing games or hanging out with friends. His lyricism might be basic, but the hooks are memorable and catchy and they lyrics doesn't matter when you can't hear them.
People here hates on future but calls Gambino god tier. Seriously, what the fuck? Even if you don't like future you can't seriously believe that Gambino is god tier on any real scale.
>seriously? mediocre as fuck.
Shit bruh, you must be seriously enlightened when it comes to music if you don't like that normie 2pac music xD Much respect brotha!!
honestly fuck off.
Heres my useless ass opinions lets start with the ones I like.
Rest in peace. Learned about him through slug, man was a real genuis. Much respect. Might be able to argue against it being god tier on certain fronts but true lyrical heads know otherwise.
Was literally just listening to this. But Headshots Se7en is a WAAAY better album and much better suited for the god-teir list. This one is fuckin great though.
Yeah I could consider this god-teir. Good tastes, homie.
Obviously God-tier. Nobody can contest that.
Of course the purple tape had to be on here. Good shit. Definitely god teir.
Gotta love that thick, rich souf side flava. Rest in peace Pimp C, definitely god tier.
Fucking Duh. Only 2pac album that comes close to this is Me against the World. Both god teir though.
Best album Em ever dropped, good shit. Definitely god teir.
True classic, both this and 2001 are god teir, good tastes.
You peices of shit I expected better. This should have been posted 100 posts ago. Come the fuck on.
I fucking hate the way future raps but somehow DS2 is a banger in my neighborhood somehow. Ignorant niggerish shit though if you ask me. Nowhere near god-teir, maybe in its own little genre, but not in rap in general.
I. Fuckin. Hate. Danny Browns voice. Every track I've ever heard from him has been lyrically wack and his sickly voice isn't helping him sound any better to me. Feel free to post a good song by him and make me eat my words.
Literally a meme. I hope you people don't take this kid seriously. I have no respect for what he does.
Could never get into Jay Z because Nas slaughtered him too hard, and he relies far too heavily on the mob-look. He seems fake to me. I don't actually believe most of the shit he says Hes obviously made it though cus hes rich as fuck.
>Thinking Future is better than milo or Tupac
Do us all a favor and down some bleach or drain cleaner.
If you don't think Me Against the World or All Eyes on Me are god tier rap albums you have the worst taste in rap and should probably pick a different genre of music.
Honestly respecting 2pac's position in rap sounds like a contrarian reddit thing to say.
>Could never get into Jay Z because Nas slaughtered him too hard, and he relies far too heavily on the mob-look. He seems fake to me. I don't actually believe most of the shit he says Hes obviously made it though cus hes rich as fuck.
I'm the guy who posted Reasonable Doubt. First off, I don't particularly care for Jay-Z in general. Respect him, but I think he's highly overrated by almost everyone. Nas also slaughtered him, you're right.
That being said - Jay is as real as it gets when it comes to talking about "the mob-look," dude legit sold crack for a decade and even had pushers working under him.
But more importantly, Reasonable Doubt is one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. The first time I listened to it I couldn't believe it was the same Jigga from Kingdom Come. Seriously, give it a listen front to back if you haven't. Again, this is coming from somebody who doesn't care for the rest of Jay-Z's body of work (outside of a few singles).
Alright you've convinced me. I'll give it a shot. Reasonable doubt was actually one of the few albums I skipped when I tried peeping Jay for the first time. Guess I made a bad choice.
>Could never get into Jay Z because Nas slaughtered him too hard
>"ur a faget"
I like Nas but his beef tracks were just edgy rants whereas Hova actually came at him in a mature fashion instead of throwing the rap equivalent of a temper tantrum.
If you wanna post trap rappers in a god teir album list you better post Starlito. Not some shitty new-rappin ass hypefags.
God I wish Migos would come to my city so I could rob those niggas.
Cool man. If you don't like it, my bad for wasting your time - but you'll probably like it. Again I really recommend listening to the whole thing but if you're not about that at least listen to Can't Knock the Hustle, Can I Live, Ain't No Nigga, and Bring It On (assuming you've heard DP2 and D'Evils - if not those are essentials).
>Reasonable doubt was actually one of the few albums I skipped when I tried peeping Jay for the first time.
>Calling him Hova
The man said one line and it was wack. Nas made a whole track and he insulted him several times in it, none of which Jay answered to. Which was a good move, because rap beef is played out... But Ether was waaaaay better than takeover.
If hating wack ass migos makes me reddit I guess I gotta go make an account then.
I'll drop a migos in a heartbeat and die in a blaze of glory if their thugs want to draw guns. They're fuckin up the game and all 3 of those niggas are fake as fuck.
Get better tastes.
That's what I'm saying bruh. Trying to help him out. One of the few GOAT 90s albums as far as lyricism that, if it were released today, would probably still "bump in the whip" of younger people because of the production.
Honestly its because it wasn't on spotify dog.
And I listened to a lot of shit on spotify of Jays and still couldn't get into him. (Outside of 1 track, Imaginary Players. He hurt that first verse.)
I'm listening now man, shit. Give me time. I'll be in the next rap album thread if I catch it.
I'm not dismissing ether but calling a jay-z gay every other verse and then just airing out who he's sleeping with and making fun of how he looks is just childish from my perceptive. He got him on bars on how he mingling with certain rappers to increase his overall fame and the biggie but the rest was infantile shit.
At-least Jay-Z hit him with shit about music and his "hood" background, nas was just using anything he could do to turn it around.
I'm not saying what nas said on ether wasn't childish at times. But it wasn't a tantrum. It was him drawing the line with Jays passive aggressive cheap shots.
The shit Jay Z said about Nas's Hood status is exactly why I didn't respect his diss. He was trying to slander Nas's name by trying to make his struggles less real. Thats some shit you just don't do. Nas is one of the realest rappers out there. Disrespectin Nas's music is far more stupid and nonredeemable and than raggin on him getting fucked over by fox, or talking about his chipped teeth or waved up head. The hood loves nas because of how real, raw and powerful his music is.
Jay knew back then that nas was bangin, he just couldn't target him outside of defacing his image in the hood because he knew how real he was and how nice he is on the mic. He had nothing worthwhile to say to the man after nas dropped ether and called him out on his bullshit.
Thats what made me decide Jay wasn't shit (At the time). But I've grown up since then and the beefs long since been squashed, so I'm trying to figure out what makes Jay so Good. but Takeover was still wack.
>He was trying to slander Nas's name by trying to make his struggles less real.
He never said anything about his struggles or how the hood affected his life, he just called him out on his alleged participation in the hood life. Nas was always the observer, he went from being a street poet to a "thug", that's what he was called out on.
There are plenty of thugs who came out normal but then became the type of person they rap about, Tupac being the most famous example. Nas is just not one of them, and that's the truth. You go to the project in Queens where he lived and they'll tell you yourself.
And you think someone saying you don't really live the hood life but just watch it isn't downplaying your struggles? Jay Z was tellin people nas didn't really live the street life when he fuckin did. His homie got gunned down outside of his fuckin project building. He dropped out of school and sold crack for years before coming a rapper. And at stupidly young age. The fact hes still alive and can channel the raw emotion of the streets and the struggle is literally the reason he's so god damn popular.
Nigga I got family in QB right now and they love and respect Nas. Neither You you Jay Z can sit here and tell me that nigga aint real. This is obviously just us at a cross purposes of who likes which rapper more.
I feel, and I am only typing this because it will piss off, and hopefully enlighten, many people to the fact that this is, the best album of 2015. The subtleties and story arch are too much to discredit due to any irrational idea that jonathon spams his own music. 9/10, and nothing less. Sue me. Sure there are some moments, but most of them serve the overall theme and purpose. Its beautifully produced and well written. Ive been a fan of this mixtape since November and it only gets better every time I hear it. That being said, I can see why some people dont get it. The fact that they are so vocal about it is embarrassing to say the least.
You just keep going in circles anon. Yes Nas lived in a bad neighborhood, yes Nas best friend who was almost like a brother to him got smoked in front of the project building he lived, yes all his friends are either dead or in jail.
No one denies that, so stop jumping on it. What am saying and the same shit Jay-Z said is that his PARTICIPATION in hood shit is overplayed. No Nas did not slang rocks before his rap carer, because of the death of his friend, he made mc'ing his number one focus.
He didn't deal or gangbang in any serious way. That shit is fact, unless you're trying to use lyrics from a song as some sort of credible source.
Also I find Nas to be the superior rapper so I'm not a mindless dickrider, I'm just giving you my two cents.
Good album shit opinions
Only ones God tier . Set a stepping stone on hip-hop
The rest are just average or boring albums
Honestly I agree with you I just dont think it is a 9/10 or god tier at all I think its an impressive debut but more like a 7/10 maybe a tad higher. Good, but too amateur to be great. Potential is there.
I love Ether. It was way more powerful than Takeover. But if you get why Takeover or Jay z in general was good, then you just don't get rap. Jay Z was hitting Nas and Mobb Deep with facts and only facts. After It was written, Nas fell off. For a Rap legend, that's embarrassing. Jay had more selling albums and more relevant. (Whether the quality of the albums before BP and Stillmatic is better is debatable ). Plus , Jay-Z DID sold drugs. he's not one of those fake coke rappers. Nas, however, has not drugged dealed. He was more into rapping. That was a few of his points Jay was pointing out. Mind you, takeover ended Mobb Deep's career. Dissing 2 rappers in 2 separate verses.
MMLP and Black Album aren't 90's, smart one.
