The Sun Rises in the East
2.  The Sun Rises in the East by Jeru The Damaja
The list author says:
  "jeru, easily one of the greatest and most slept-on- dropping science, mixing it with hardcore lyrics and premo production, but still not getting his props. Pick it up for a wake-up call."
£9.00   Used & New from: £4.51
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Breaking Atoms
3.  Breaking Atoms by Main Source
The list author says:
  "yeah, its one of those that go for 60 odd quid on ebay, and it's only known for introducing nas to hip hop, but cop it for a classic. Extra P aint the greatest, but hes got lyrics to go."
£16.95   Used & New from: £10.66
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Be
4.  Be by Common
The list author says:
  "I reckon this is a modern classic. Kanye firmly behind the boards where he belongs, 11 tracks on a modern hip hop album, and Common dropping knowledge- what's wrong?"
£20.00   Used & New from: £2.48
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Liquid Swords
5.  Liquid Swords by Genius
The list author says:
  "Yeah, you know this one. Sharpest lyricist in the Wu with RZA's soulful production (which gave birth to Kanye's style), combines to make one of the greatest, and easily the best Wu album."
£5.70   Used & New from: £2.21
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Mecca And The Soul Brother
6.  Mecca And The Soul Brother by Pete Rock

  "Probably heard about this one too, but it's true. One of hip hop's greatest producers combines with the underrated CL for a 16 track strong classic. Also features the legendary 'TROY'."
Used & New from: £4.59
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

3 Feet High and Rising
7.  3 Feet High and Rising by De La Soul
The list author says:

£5.52   Used & New from: £2.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
8.  Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by Wu-Tang Clan

Cactus Album
9.  Cactus Album by 3rd Bass

10.  At the Speed of Life by Xzibit
