*With production by Danger Mouse and contributions by MF DOOM & De La Soul, I'd say this is a proper hip hop-ish album. Worthy of placement on this list. (Plus I played it at least 40 times - no exaggeration!)
**Even though it's reggae, I consider this a hip hop album as well.


  1. Funk 'Yes im commenting on all these posts' DocDecember 28, 2009 at 6:03 PM

    Graduation >>>>>

  2. Agreed on the Damien Marley rationale. When him and Nas ripped "Road to Zion" @ Rock the Bells that was one of the dopest concert experiences ever. Hyped for Distant Relatives btw.

  3. first of all, your right to include gorillaz its pure hiphop

    Still, Late Registration >>>>>>>
