#9. 2 Pac - Me Against The World
10 Essential Hip-Hop Albums

Album cover: © Interscope

This essential hip-hop album established Tupac Shakur as an emotionally raw artist-turned-icon. Me Against The World is a seamless amalgamation of his irreverent take on hip-hop and the black struggle. His multiple personalities permeate the album: occasionally vulnerable, occasionally cantankerous. Me Against The World is 2Pac at his best: no excessive thug braggarts, no name-inscribed lyrical missiles aimed at east coast rappers. (In fact, he pays homage to rap pioneers on "Old School.") This is simply Pac and his poignant, albeit defiant, multi-faceted dispositions. And you wonder why he's still the most imitated rapper of all time.
