The Ten Best Hip Hop Albums of the 00's

So here is my top 10 in a rough order, its not complete just yet, ill put in info soon! But since the decade is now coming to a close it feels like the right time for this! All criticism is welcome, positive and negative so please drop a comment.

10. Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele

Okay, theres alway a lot of debate over whats Ghosface's best album and its usually between Ironman and Supreme Clietele, I even wont bother saying which one i prefer ill leave you to choose yourself. But take Ironman out of the equation and were left with Supreme Clietele and Fishscale, I actually wanted to put Fishscale in this list but didnt want more than 1 album by the same artist so settled on Supreme Clietele!

Best Tracks :
Ghost Deini

5. Panacea - Ink Is My Drink

Listen to the very first Song and before you even hear Raw Poetic spit his first verse on the album we're greeted with vocals "Come Along With Me and Share the Ecstasy" over an explosion of pure blissful music by producer K-Murdoc, and believe the message given in the first 5 seconds of the album because that exactly what you're in for!

I'm feeling your #2-9 ... Deltron is cool, but serious not as good as your 2-9. And Jurrassic, uh ... I'd put that somewhere around #163.

Madvillain #1 on my list.

K-Murdock said...
