No Big Daddy Kane on the list AT ALL?
Quite an injustice to someone who's considered by many top be in the 5 greatest rap lyricists of all time.

I agree. Some important hip-hop albums are missing.

I like Chris F., but this list needs a revision. "Quality" should not factor as a criterion, and there are several misspellings to boot. And no way should albums like No More Drama be ahead of items such as Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's Mecca And The Soul Brother, Scarface's The Diary, Big Daddy Kane's Long Live The Kane, and a host of others to give an example.

Actually I'd say It's A Big Daddy Thing is Kane's best.

"Best" is subjective.

Long Live The Kane and It's A Big Daddy Thing are no doubt among his top two greatest albums, and I could see either one at the top.

Paid In Full could move up a spot or two.
Lots of importance and influence there.

This list desperately needs at least one release from BDK, Big L, and Big Punisher.
