Thought this was such a nice and interesting initiative that I made this sticky until the countdown is over..  8)

As soon as I hit 500, I'll be hitting C2Knuckles up with some props. There looks to be a lot of effort going into this list. I don't agree with some of the spots the albums got, but the reviews are quite entertaining and it just gets me interested to see what his top albums will be.

no way is breaking atoms better than whut thee album or resurrection

and 2001 shouldnt be top 50

where did u put straight outta compton...cause niggaz4life is better
I ain't little but vicious, guns no misses You feel me, kisses or wishes, fore I break you up like dishes Fuck your bosses, my forces, endorses To kill all your sources y'all niggas best be cautious No losses, my fortress, is Jaguars and Porsche's Ride the OTB to check my money on the horses My horrors is flawless, my block one of the broadest Off the main attraction for them whitey ass tourists That I tosses, it scorches, with out no remorses Leave they bloody body to be found in Mount Morris

those aren't popular opinions though. I think the countdown is legit so far

in Knuckles case, i dont think so. If he will, he should pop up very soon, gets less realistic with every non-Quik album there. but really, id put my money on no

By judging the list so far I doubt a Quik album will make it... It should but wont.

i'd bet that more than HALF of the people wouldn't have had all the above albums before this thread started.
