Phrenology - The Roots
Rate:
Owned Wanted Heard Custom

Since the birth of rap music to golden age of rap, the whole music style was considered "underground". In the early 90s rap had had its followers, both critics and audience. Some say it was this "mainstream" status that lead to the death of "real rap scene". Nowadays, everywhere you go, you hear shitty modern rap and it's quite hard to connect this shit to the old school stuff. This list's goal is to make tribute to the visionaries of old school and golden age rappers, and those modern rap music makers who haven't sold their souls for commercialism.

These are the most acclaimed rap albums of all-time according to the AcclaimedMusic.com.

Any specific order? Not a critic, I'm asking just out of curiosity.
Posted: 9 years ago at Sep 21 10:53
Yes, the order is as it is listed, beginning from the most acclaimed and finishing to the 50th most acclaimed, according to AcclaimedMusic.com.

Beastie Boys are great! Gil Scott-Heron is so underappreciated... But then I'm basing this on his Spirits album alone.

Excellent list! Rap has it's fair share of critics, but this list is an perfect example of some of the sheer quality that came from this genre.
