Sean Price's Top 20 Favorite Albums Of All Time

Some bonafied Hip Hop classics, some R&B picks, one of his own, a soundtrack and even an album that's less than a year old, guest editor Sean Price gives HipHopDX readers his all time Top 20 albums.

When we handed the reigns over to Sean Price to guest-edit HipHopDX for this week, he gave us this list. Truth be told, we didn't ask for it. But in the age of the Internet list, we wouldn't argue, especially with Sean P. Plus, we really liked some choices.

Some bonafied Hip Hop classics, some R&B picks, one of his efforts, a soundtrack and even an album that's less than a year old, here are Sean Price's all time Top 20 albums (ranked as they came to mind, not in order of preference), as told to HipHopDX Music Editor Kathy Iandoli:

1.      The D.O.C. - No One Can Do it Better (1989, Ruthless/Atlantic)

What HipHopDX Says: This Dr. Dre & DJ Yella-produced debut album is the epitome of "your favorite rapper's favorite rapper." Sadly, the N.W.A. affiliate's first was also the only album he made before a car accident that permanently damaged his vocal chords. Dallas, Texas has still never found anybody who can do it better, as far as the raps go.

Must watch/listen:

2.      Michael Jackson - Off the Wall (1979, Epic)

What HipHopDX Says: The Michael Jackson album that bridged Disco with what would become the Pop sound of the '80s. Although it lives in Thriller's shadow, it's a classic album from the one-two punch of M.J. and Quincy Jones. Hip Hop deejays still focus on this album, which showed Michael Jackson's solo genius, apart from his group with his brothers and solo success as a child.

Must watch/listen:

3.      Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life (1976, Tamla)

What HipHopDX Says: Often considered Stevie Wonder's finest hour, this 1976 double-album caught the Motown genius in a period of particular greatness. His 18th overall effort was made in the midst of a block-buster label deal and Wonder's outspoken views on government during the Gerald Ford presidency. The resulting masterpiece prompted singles such as "Sir Duke," "Isn't She Lovely?" and "As." The #1 effort also featured session plauers near and dear to Hip Hop samplers: Bobbi Humphrey, Dorothy Ashby and George Benson.

Must listen:

4.      N.W.A. - Niggaz4Life (1991, Ruthless/Priority)

What HipHopDX Says: The second of the two official N.W.A. albums, this effort features no Ice Cube. However, MC Ren really stepped into the group's clutch-hitting spot, while Dr. Dre's sample-style perfectly set the table for his solo success a year later on The Chronic. This album lacks the controversy and fanfare of Straight Outta Compton, but is a must-own for lovers of hardcore Hip Hop.

Must listen/watch:

5.      Ice Cube - Amerikkka’s Most Wanted (1990, Priority)

What HipHopDX Says: Ice Cube's solo debut was a five-mic kick to the face of the industry in early '90. This and 1991's Death Certificate are as good a one-two punch as you'll find in any soloist's catalog. Having left Dr. Dre & DJ Yella at N.W.A., Cube linked up with The Bomb Squad (of Public Enemy fame) and his C.I.A. teenage collaborator Sir Jinx. The result was a furrowed-brow Cube who was colder than Coor's Light on Pluto.

Must listen: "The Nigga Ya Love To Hate"

6.      Ice Cube - Kill At Will (1990, Priority)

What HipHopDX Says: Less than two months after Amerikkka's Most Wanted, Cube hit fans with a seven-song EP that soon hit gold status. Produced by Sir Jinx, that album was a nice bridge between Amerikkka's Most and Death Certificate. The same time as Boyz N' The Hood was filming, Ice Cube was a golden-god. He didn't pull any punches, and Cube set a bully-rap precedent that would influence Tupac, 50 Cent and Game.

Must watch/listen:

7.      A Tribe Called Quest - Peoples’ Instinctive Travels And The Paths of Rhythm (1990, Jive/RCA)

What HipHopDX Says: This album introduced one of the most important Hip Hop groups of all-time in A Tribe Called Quest. The quarter of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed and Jarobi were about telling stories, rocking crowds, and abstractions, all expressed over mosiac productions that made history.

Must watch/listen: "Can I Kick It?"

8.      A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory (1991, Jive/RCA)

What Sean Price Says: "The best album, ever.”

Must watch/listen:

9.      De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising (1989, Tommy Boy)

What Sean Price Says: “I blame [De La Soul] for all the pastels. They’re the reason- they was one of the first Kanye Wests.”

Must watch/listen: "Potholes In My Lawn"

10.   Jungle Brothers - Straight Out The Jungle (1988, Warlock)

What HipHopDX Says: An often overlooked but integral album to the Native Tongues story. This five-mic earner by the Jungle Brothers is a colorful statement on racial pride, African imagery, bridging 1970s Hip Hop with the new generation, and of course, safe sex. The recorded introduction of Q-Tip is also a benchmark in the Hip-House movement that's resurging in some of today's Rap records.

Must listen/watch:

11.   Black Moon - Enta Da Stage (1993, Nervous)

What HipHopDX Says: This is the album that paved the Brooklyn roads for the Boot Camp Clik, incuding Sean Price. Buckshot and 5FT kicked concrete "gun-in-the-backpack" rhymes while DJ Evil Dee and Mr. Walt filtered samples in a way that made an album that sounded just as fuzzy and elevated as the men who made it.

Must listen:

12.   Mary J. Blige - Share My World (1997, MCA)

What Sean Price Says: “The story behind that one is: I was learning how to drive, and that tape was stuck in the car. It wouldn’t come out. So by the third hour I was just singing Mary J. Blige records like I know the whole album, verbatim."

Must listen/watch:

13.   Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - Mecca & The Soul Brother (1992, Elektra)

What HipHopDX Says: This is a 20-year old classic album from the Mount Vernon, New York duo, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. The pair's first full-length was is an amazing blend of knocking bass and introspective lyrics. Although the group had earned notoriety throughout the early '90s, this effort defined them, and elevated them to legends. Sadly, only one more LP followed. Both artists remain active today, still touring together on occassion.

Must listen/watch:

14.   Main Source - Breaking Atoms (1991, Wild Pitch)

What HipHopDX Says: One of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever made. Large Professor stole the show with honest rhymes that veered between street commentary, police criticism and a benchmark break-up song. Extra P also produced some of the most heralded beats of all-time, while Sir Scratch and K-Cut (of Toronto, Ontario) both shared turntable duties. Within two years, Large Pro jetted from Main Source to pursue a solo career still burning strong today.

Must listen/watch:

15.   KA - Grief Pedigree (2012, Iron Works)

What HipHopDX Says: Like Sean Price, KA is a Brownsville, Brooklyn spitter. This has been one of the most slept-on albums of the year, tearing up our staff lists as we enter Year-End territory. KA comes from Natural Elements fame, and teamed with an emcee he has a lot of stylistic things in common with, Roc Marciano on this one. Last year's Iron Works LP is nothing to miss out on either.

Must listen/watch: "Decisions"

16.   Roc Marciano - Marcberg (2010, Fat Beats)

What HipHopDX Says: This was a staff favorite of the crew in 2010. Flipmode Squad/The U.N.'s Roc Marciano made an epic comeback by going solo. The Hempstead, Long Island native self-produced this emcee allegedly during his homeboy Q-Tip's The Renaissance sessions. The result was the one of the grimiest, sparse views of New York, pimping, hustling and the world at large heard in ages. We're still hung up on the realness...

Must listen:

17.   Random Axe - Random Axe - (2011, Duck Down)

What HipHopDX Says: One of our albums of 2011, this collaborative effort between Sean Price, Black Milk and Guilty Simpson highlighted the Brooklyn-Detroit connection that's been looming for sometime. A carry-over between Jesus Price and Mic Tyson, this album was a benchmark moment in Sean Price's lyricism, and found him in the company of some of the best production he's had in his career.

Must watch/listen:

18.   Curtis Mayfield - Short Eyes Soundtrack (1977, Curtom)

What Sean Price Says: “That’s a movie about this guy- it’s a jail movie, with a white guy in there [jail] for touching little black and Spanish girls, right? And when he get to jail, they come to find out that this one girl he got charged with, he didn’t do. But when he’s in jail, he admitted to the people that he do it to mad niggas and spics, so they fucked him in the ass and killed him.”

Must listen:

19.   Redman - Muddy Waters (1996, Def Jam)

What HipHopDX Says: Often considered Redman's best solo album, this effort was a careful bridge between the darker subject matter and boom-bap heard on his first two solos, and a more charismatic listen. The videos here made Redman approachable, and he became a Def Jam juggernaut for the next 15 years.

Must listen/watch: "It's Like That (My Big Brother") featuring K-Solo

20.   Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele (2000, Epic/Sony/Razor Sharp)

What HipHopDX Says: One of the best albums of the '00s, as we've previously noted. This was a critical album to Ghostface Killah's classic catalog. RZA shared the duties on this effort with the likes of Beatnuts, Allah Mathematics and Carlos Bess, and 12 years later, nobody complained.

    • rick

      ^^^^ Nicely said! Thats why NIGGAS, continue being NIGGAS! They don't want to educate themselves and move forward in life. ......Like Wyclef Jean said at the end of Chapelle's movie. Don't blame the system. Blame yourself for not moving ahead in life.

    • Andre

      STFU, Haha, how many rappers do you actually believe actually out there moving big weight or being real gangsters... cause if they were they'd be dead or in prison not rapping. So STFU. You taking points away from Ice Cube for going and getting himself educated? he may not have been gangster, but he did grow up in South Central LA... So he was speaking on things he had seen or experiences he knew about... The one thing Ice Cube never did was Glorify being a Gangster... He just gave'em a voice through his music. So stfu.

  • Inna

    Hats off to HipHopDX... This whole Sean Price takeover has been epic, yall should do this more often with Hip Hop's royalty. Great list... And why are niggas on here posting their own list.... Nobody gives a fuck, you're not Sean P.... And if he ain't list one of your favs, get over it! lol

      Yeah I only really started to listen to Hip Hop in 2009... I don't really get how you can get so worked up over somebody else's list, even if it was filled with Rick Ross, Lil Wayne Wacka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, Birdman & Soulja Boy it's somebody else's opinion get the fuck over it.

    • mike t

      lol. 3 Jay-Z records and 2 Kanye? These kids just started listening to this rap shit. If you got Eminem, Jay-Z or Kanye on your list of best Hip-Hop records you lose all creditability. People's Instinctive Travels beats every record on your list, new jack. C'Mon people, just be honest with me, you've never listened to any Tribe, De La, X-Clan, Gang Starr, BDP, PE, Kane or G Rap because there is no way anyone on Earth can think a Slim Shady or Kanye record could be better than those. Seriously? 2 Kanye albums? People just started listening to rap this year? All you bozos just name the same shitty records. Eminem? You all make me wanna pull my hair out. Hip-Hop from 1987-1997 is the real true golden era. No album released after those years can come close. Your list of 20 has 17 albums that were all released after 1997.

      I think that BeranTownBreezy forgot that everyone has different opinions.

    • BeranTownBreezy

      Pretty good list but Common's best cd was "Resurrection" and every real hip hop cat knows that. Tupac's first cd "2pacolypse" was better than Me Against The World, you can take The Blue Print off of that shit quick and repace it with about 25 albums that came out between 92' and 95', Dr. dre's "The Chronic" was better than 2001, ca'mon homie. You could put Gangstarr "Step Into The Arena", "Hard To Earn" or "Daily Operation" cuz that was the group's peak years when they ran shit, definately no Blu & Exile or Big KRIT cuz homie 8Ball & MJG got betetr albums than him, so I question your age cuz you are missig out on alot of classic albums in your list, but I see you on a good part.One

    Illmatic and Enter the Wu-Tang need to be on everybody's best Hip Hop albums of all time list.

    • I'm At Work And Bored

      Wu-Tang, yes. Illmatic? eh... it's the most overrated album of all time in my opinion. I prefer It Was Written, Stillmatic & Life Is Good.

    • ThaKritic

      The list aint a list without the nigga Riff Raff and Lil Debby on there.. Fuck yall on.. yall must not of seen dem beeds in his hair.. Dem shits go ma nigga.. like Remy red my nigga

    • Blah

      That's your opinion just as this list is his. To me, best hip hop list gotta have Runaway Slave by Showbiz and AG or Stress... by Organized Konfusion. But that's just me anyway. No reason everyone gotta have the same albums on their lists.

  • Acesun

    Honorable Mentions 1. EPMD - Strictly Business 2. Smith & Wesson - DAH Shinin 3. Enter the 36 Chambers 4. O.D.B - Brooklyn Zoo 5. Nas - It was written 6. Brand Nubians 7. Eric B. & Rakim - Paid in Full 8. Gangstarr - Full Clip You gotta have those in on the mix ock.

  • Acesun

    Yo P! Nice list right there Duke, went into a time machine just reading and remembering what was going on in my life when those albums dropped, gotta have enter the 36th on there though. That whole list was like the Golden ERA of Rap, chances are if you don't remember those or have listened to atleast 12 of them, you must be new to hiphop and think that YMCB are the only group that make music.

If I had Hip Hop DX's taste, I'd be wearing a yellow tee shirt and a Charlotte Hornets snapback right now. I'd also have a completely unlistenable iPod. So let's leave the HHDX opinion on the cutting room floor next time. Let Sean speak. I've seen your lists. They're incomprehensible.

    VERY respectable list, but he defly keep it 'in the box'. Though, he prolly shoulda listed a top 25-30 or an honorable mention list. I personally woulda replaced Random Axe Grief Pedigree Kill At Will with *Ultramagnetic MC's-"Critical Beatdown" *Show & A.G.-"Runaway Slave" *Nas-"Illmatic"/"It Was Written" MY Honorable Mentions 'off top': (Rakim-"Paid In Full"/"Follow The Leader", Kool G. Rap-"Road to Riches"/"Wanted Dead or Alive", "Wu-"36 Chambers", Hov-"Hard Knock Life", BDK-"It's a Big Daddy Thing", Dr. Dre-"The Chronic", Outkast-ANY album is honorable mention, SERIOUSLY!!, Roots-"Illadelph Halflife", Main Source-"Breakin' Atoms", Rae-"Cuban Linx".. . Other than that, I couldn't argue with this list.. *JUST MY OPINION

    It's cool he gave Ka and Roc Marciano that look. Funny to me... No Nas No Jay-Z No 2Pac No Biggie No Outkast No Kane No Gang Starr This list defies a lot of cats. I like that about it, cause everybody list looking same now.

      He won't list Biggie because he was one of "the niggas up hill up in Brownsville" plus OGC clowned him (Biggie) on a video so why would he list him? If it makes you feel better Main Source album is Nas' debut on wax. MOP or Masta Ace missing surprises me tho.

      There are people that still have their own preferences in this world. Not everybody has to clone other peoples thoughts and likes.

    good call on main source. definitely over looked group, fuck what you think was a good album too even after XP left. Good choices as well, ghost, red, black moon, curtis mayfield... etc Sean P got good tastes
