Kendrick Lamar Lists His Top 25 Favorite Hip-Hop Albums

By  | 

Lists can send people into a frenzy but we have to remember that Hip-Hop/Music is very personal. What may be MY favorite album might not be yours simply because we relate to them differently. There are also the lists that get made based on production, features, numbers, lyricism and so forth.

As I have mentioned before, I really dig it when artists share their personal favorites! Which is exactly what Kendrick Lamar recently did in an interview with Complex. He talks about Dr. Dre being played in his house as a kid and having to go back and listen to Jay=Z’s Reasonable Doubt once he started rapping (to study).
