Rolling Stone Names Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Ready To Die' The Greatest Hip-Hop Album Of All Time

We are halfway through the 2022 calendar year and there have been numerous “so far” lists popping up all over social media. Whether it’s the best hip-hop albums of 2022 so far, or the biggest rappers of the year, the coveted Rolling Stone publication has released their Top 200 Greatest Hip-Hop Albums of All Time, and while the list covers decades of music, there’s been some great conversations on social media surrounding their selection. 

The extensive list has the late legendary New York rapper The Notorious B.I.G. taking over the number one spot with his debut album ‘Ready To Die.’ The 1994 release beats out some pretty iconic and pivoting releases from an impressive top 10, which includes Outkast’s ‘Stankonia,’ Jay-Z’s ‘The Blueprint,’ Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly,’ Missy Elliott’s ‘Miss E…So Addictive,’ as well as Lauryn Hill’s ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill,’ and many more.
