Your Top 10 Hip-Hop Albums?

Now I know I cast the impression of being solely an uninformed rock and metal elitist, but I'm a fan of good hip-hop as well. I was just curious of what some of your favorite albums were. Now I'm not an expert, so don't shred me for excluding some albums, haha.

Now I'm not an expert, so don't shred me for excluding some albums, haha.

My top 10:

10) Cypress Hill - Black Sunday
9) Outkast - Stankonia or Aquemini
8) N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton
7) GZA - Liquid Swords
6) Del tha Funkee Homosapien - Both Sides of the Brain
5) Geto Boys - We Can't Be Stopped
4) Eminem - Infite/SS LP/MM LP (can't decide)
3) Nas - Illmatic
2) Wu-Tang Clan - 36 Chambers
1) Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

Those 10 albums were very tough to put in order, but that's about right for me.

Your top 10?
Update: Thanks for the lists, everyone. I'll have to check out some of the albums I haven't heard of.
