just my favorites throughout my life that i can easily listen to front to back. i missed a bunch but i can't think of them rn. if you haven't heard some of these gems, i highly recommend taking a listen. **not in any order**
  1. College Dropout - Kanye West
    grew up to this. just a well balanced album man..lyrics are creative and humorous and the beats are soulful
  2. Documentary - the Game
    I've know every line to this damn album..
  3. Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers - Wu Tang Clan
    self explanatory. u gotta know about this if you're a true hip hop fan. RZA's Tao of Wu is an incredible book too
  4. The Marshall Mathers LP
    i remember i got this from the library and it fuckin blew my mind
  5. Californication - RHCP
  6. Midnight Marauder - A Tribe Called Quest
    good vibes.
  7. Tapestry - Carole King
    don't ask
  8. Speakerboxxx/The Love Below - Outkast
  9. Hot Fuss - The Killers
    had a weird Brandon Flowers phase
  10. Illmatic- Nas
    arguably the great hip hop album of ALL TIME
  11. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West
    I had this on repeat during a pretty depressing time of my life and it just stuck with me. it's something I listen to a lot when I'm alone
  12. Come Around Sundown - Kings of Leon
  13. 3 Feet and Rising - De La Soul
  14. Mickey Mouse Operation - Little People
    for instrumental lovers
  15. Born Sinner - J. Cole
    well organized album
