What was the last big Hiphop album?

Sales are down, DLs are up, but with considering all that, what's had the BIG impact over the last few yrs?

Some suggestions:

50 - Get Rich

Pro Green (UK) - Lecture No1.

Lupe - 1st album

Kanye - College Drop Out

Nas - Untitled

What yr saying?

Not sales.

Personal opinion and impact...

What you hear getting blasted, what reaches out beyond core audience, what makes ppl reassess what Hiphop can do and influences what comes after.

Loadsa quality albums and artists don't get anywhere near the recognition they deserve.

I was never really into hiphop until I started listening to handsome boy modeling school and herbaliser...they're amazing! The albums I'm thinking of aren't recent, so not the last big hiphop album, but they're the ones I love.

I know I just didn't answer the point of this thread at all.

I know that.

With the beef, 50 claimed to have had massive creative input into the album, (which I think you can hear on it) and removing 50 & Dre from the album and what have you got?

Game hasn't delivered anything of quality since (has he?)...

Not saying it wasn't a big album, but it's main impact was as 'The new star / new uprising of the West Coast', and it retrospect, seems like a lot of unjustified hype.
