In this era, I feel like mixtapes should get the same shine that albums get. The setup is basically like an album anyway, we’ve evolved from freestyling on other people’s beats and having a DJ screaming over tracks.

Good list but a few thoughts:

Where is Vince Staples? where is JID? You really included a Logic project over Big Fish Theory and The Never Story? Where is Phonte for Charity Starts At Home? Royce for The Book of Ryan??

Teflon Don is better than at least 6-7 albums that come after it, including Life Is Good, which should be no where near the top 10. And Nas is my Goat.

4Eva Is A Mighty Long Time deserves inclusion and should be top 10-15, you really picked Logic and Life Is Good over that album?

Run The Jewels 2 is better than 3 and also top 10.

I agree wholeheartedly with your top 3 although I'd have places MBDTF at #2. It's clear Kendrick is the best artist (not just rapper) of this decade.

Here is a thread of my top 10 that I made a whole ago:



In retrospect Teflon Don should be in that list somewhere. It's truly a classic.

props to op for putting undun and how I got over on the list but I don't see: paperwork, dime trap, trouble man, mega philosophy, black beans, or the ecology.

Not a bad list



4 ever is a mighty long time, Sir Lucious Left Foot, and Thank You for Your Service is definitely on my list.

I’m not taking a Mac Miller album over those three.


Awaken, My Love as well even though it’s not a hip hop album

Pretty sure Covert Coup is a mixtape and you have it in your list.
Covert Coup is the collaboration studio album by rapper Curren$y and producer The Alchemist. The album featured guest appearances from rappers Prodigy of Mobb Deep, Freddie Gibbs, Smoke DZA and Fiend and contains 10 songs. Covert Coup was created as a retail EP. Later, the artists decided to release it as a free digital album.[5] It was still treated as a mixtape, however, since it was given away for free.
I guess you're right but some mixtapes don't ever come that close to being an album. I can't fault someone for putting mixtapes in there then but doing that would push out some great albums and it wouldn't give the mixtapes their own spotlight in a list of their own.

His trash recent music doesn't make his first two albums nonexistent. They were both dope and hold up well imo

I really appreciate folks giving Butterfly its rightful props.

There was a time when BX was sh*tting on it but it is literally the only album that decade that you can put next to MBDTF and have it hold its weight.

In a decade wherein we saw the juxtoposition of a Black man in the highest office and Black men getting murdered like dogs, both in real time from our phones, the resulting shift in conciousness that reverberated through all of Black expression can use this album as a mascot.

MBDTF, Butterfly, and Lemonade are one of the small handfuls of iconic efforts put forth: in their boldness, very refined quality, and what happened in the subsequent years after they dropped. Our parents had what Stevie or Mike or Prince or any of those guys did. This is ours.
