But if it's not about ROCK albums, then we'd have to include stuff like country and rap too. Just makes it that much harder.

Shit. Hadn't thought about that. I say we just put it in somewhere and never speak of it again.

The thing is, that Dylan is considered an overall rock artist, so i think we should just say whatever and let it pass... And just for the fact, i'm assuming we are including rap, right?

Rap albums to be included:

The Marshal Mathers LP (Eminem)
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back (Chuck D)

I know next to nothing about hip-hop lyrics, sorry.

I dont think it's even questionable that The Marshall Mathers LP is his highest.

Also, "It's A Big Daddy Thing" from Big Daddy Kane is a must.

Not sure if he's influential enough, but Immortal Technique is such a ridiculously good lyricist.

I'm thinking Nas's Illmatic deserves a spot, but I'm not very versed in hip-hop, so...

For hip hop, The Message is a must and so is OG Original Gangster by Ice-T... One of the most influential albums in the innovation of gangster rap..
