  1. Props to Lupe and Maya.

    But American Gangster? Oh hell no! Severely underrated. An unappreciated near classic.

  2. Gotta agree with Funk Doc, American Gangster was a complete album, no matter what the the 'Jayters' say, but how did Finding Forever & Graduation make # 14 & #16?!? No way, At least top 10. Graduation is a classic!

  5. I'm surprised that you put Return of the Mac on this list, but overlooked HNIC for 2000. Still, some great lists.
