  • ATLiens - Outkast
  • Midnight Marauders - A Tribe Called Quest
  • Ready to Die - The Notorious BIG
  • The Chronic - Dr. Dre
  • What's the 411? - Mary J. Blige

Feel free to comment/debate; this subject always brings that out, and you'll never get a consensus. That's what bloggging's about though, the lost art of conversation.
