Inspired by oskamadison‘s suggestion in the comments section of the 50 Best Debut Albums In Hip-Hop History post, I put together a follow-up list with the Complex crew which caters more to my personal tastes.

Some good shouts in that list, but how the hell did “Wu-Tang Forever” get in there? Other than a couple of tracks its gotta be one of the blandest albums of all time!

Good shit man. I definitely would’ve put Common up higher, but Tribe and PE are right where they should be.

Half crap, half serious choices. I miss Immortal Technique, Freestyle Fellowship, Lord Finesse, O.C., Goodie Mob, Grand Puba & Biz Markie, Organized should have been a top ten album.

u still gotta click to get to the nxt. album on that site?..if so forget about it, that shit take too long..also, i agree with Immortal Tech’s second album being dope(actually surpassed his 1st album by a mile)
