2000 - Classic Material’s Top 25 Rap Albums

In previous weeks our top 25 album chart has been delivered courtesy of Ego Trip's book of rap lists. Unfortunately that resource only takes us as far as 1998 so we're now left to do the work ourselves. Beyond the end of the 90s the scene is pretty splintered, so the following list is presented in no particular order and is a mixture of personal favourites and albums with notable impact:

1. Common - Like Water For Chocolate
2. Slum Village - Fantastic Volume 2
3. Ghostface Killer - Supreme Clientele
4. De La Soul - Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump
5. Reflection Eternal - Train of Thought
6. Outkast - Stankonia
7. Quasimoto - The Unseen
8. Dead Prez - Let's Get Free
9. Big L - The Big Picture
10. People Under The Stairs - Question in the Form of an Answer
11. Jurassic 5 - Quality Control
