Clash's top ten hip-hop albums, EVER...

Mike Diver, Clash, 6 April 2009

WITH RADIO 1 presently celebrating 30 years of all things hip-hop – check out Trevor Nelson's page for more – we at Clash figured: why not cobble together a top ten of our favourite albums from said scene, OF ALL TIME.

Just for a laugh, likes.

After a quick rally round a few Clash troops, plus some of our mates elsewhere, this is what we've arrived at: ten must-have records of the hip-hop world. What we've not done is ordered these, from ten to one, simply because they're all of equal brilliance (near enough). Buy them all! You can probably get most of 'em for a fiver these days.
