Check out his 10 favorite albums of the decade.
T.I. - Urban Legend - Tip really came into his own on this album. "Bring Em Out," "ASAP," "You Don't Know Me," and "Motivation" were all bangers.
Rick Ross - Port of Miami - Ross came out with Hustlin' and it was a wrap.
Dr. Dre - Chronic 2001 - Really goes without explanation. Great production, Eminem and Snoop rhyming with Dre. (Editor Note: This album was actually released in 1999)
Eminem - Marshall Mathers LP - Em was just sick on this album. Subject matter was crazy, and his rhyme schemes, patterns and cadences were so unique.
UGK - Underground Kingz - Last album before Pimp C passed away. RIP Pimp C. UGK made it possible for me to be where I am today.
Young Jeezy - Thug Motivation - Jeezy hit the scene, he changed the whole vibe of rap music. Everybody started trappin after this album hit.
Kanye West - College Dropout - Kanye was just so unique with his subject matter and the production was crazy.
Jamie Foxx - Unpredictable - He made everybody forget that he was a comedian.
Anthony Hamilton - Coming From Where I'm From - He had such a unique sound and his music embodied so many different influences.
50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Tryin - 50 came in the game and took over. From beginning to end this is a classic album.
