You Can Only Pick 1 Album To Listen To For The Rest Of Your Life, Which Will You Choose?

Most would agree that the following albums are considered hip-hop classics. If for some reason you could only listen to one and nothing else for the rest of your life, which album would you pick?
Nas- Illmatic
Illmatic, the debut album from Nas, is the epitome of East Coast lyrical hip hop. It boasts production from Q-Tip, DJ Premier and Pete Rock among others.
Lauryn Hill- The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
This is the album that brought L-Boogie 5 Grammy awards. Her post-Fugees debut included the #1 hit Doo Wop (That Thing) as well as collaborations with Carols Santana, D’Angelo and Mary J. Blige.
Jay-Z- The Blueprint
Narrowing down Jay-Z’s albums is always a challenge but we went with this classic that gave us hits like Heart of the City and The Takeover (both produced by Kanye). Add to that production by Timbaland and Just Blaze and Eminem as the only guest verse and this is a solid choice.
Kanye West- College Dropout
When Bernie Mac’s voice introduced us to Mr. West, the game would never be the same. After blessing Jay-Z’s The Blueprint, Kanye’s College Drop out gave us Slow Jamz, Jesus Walks, All Falls Down, Through the Wire and Spaceship.
Kendrick Lamar- DAMN
Kung-Fu Kenny’s latest album has been his best-selling to date and spawned several hit records including Loyalty, Humble, and DNA. Featuring the likes of Rihanna and U2, this is one of the more eclectic choices on the list.
J Cole- For Your Eyez Only
This highly personal and introspective album relates the story of one of Cole’s close friends from childhood. It gave us bangers like Neighbors, Deja Vu and Change and gave J. Cole his first #1 album and top 10 single.
