When it comes to Hip Hop I'd take Entertainment Weekly's opinion over Rolling Stone.

Well what would you expect from a magazine like Rolling Stone? I guarantee a top 50 Hip Hop albums of all time by Rolling Stone would be a lot more legit than a top 50 guitarists list by XXL or the 90s Source.


(P.S. I realize that Rolling Stone's top guitarist list was a bit questionable)

43 Nas - Untitled
03 Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III

Lil Wayne the 3rd best album ?? ::)

It was hot garbage, and having the faaaar superior Nas album on 43rd as the next hiphop album, just goes to show that RS have no business even mentioning hiphop at all.

What's "best" isn't a popularity contest. The majority of people who buy music are morons. The majority of people in general are morons. Almost every album on that list sucks, and it doesn't matter what a bunch of uneducated morons think. I'm pretty sure the Dixie Chicks/Lil Wayne and shit like that isn't very good.

My top 5 out of that list woud probably be 1. Kings Of Leon 2. Fleet Foxes 3. Erykah Badu 4. MGMT 5. Beck

the new TV On The Radio isn't really my cup of tea.

The new Dylan of course is good but nothing really impressive.

well thats to you; a huge rap fan.

honestly if you asked people on this board the best albums of the year rap/hip hop albums would be 3/4 of the list.

to the rest of the world; Wayne is the shit. people dont care what he labels; weather he calls it rap or not, just the material & people who dont like rap bought the album equally to the number of people who like hip hip who bought it.
