  • TLC_12152013jg_0319
    WrestleMania 30 is this Sunday (April 6) on Pay-per-view (PPV) and it's jam packed with exciting matches. The Undertaker will defend his WrestleMania win streak against Brock Lesnar, John Cena will fight Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Batista and the winner of a epic showdown between Daniel Bryan and Triple H.

    WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show starts at 5 p.m. ET and the actual event starts between 6-7 p.m. Before the event kicks off, XXL got WWE's superstar Big E (formerly known as Big E Langston) on the phone to give us his top five favorite albums and why. Take a look above.
  • ready to die
    1. Notorious B.I.G. Ready To Die

    "To me it’s just a classic album. You go from track to track to track; it’s so many memorable hits. It’s Biggie. To me he’s probably the greatest lyricist we ever had."

  • illmatic_389371
    2. Nas Illmatic

    "It’s only 10 tracks, but for me there is no skipping with tracks, every track is a banger."

  • Blu-Exile-Below-The-Heavens
    3. Blue Below the Heavens

    "I’m a big fan of the soul samples, It’s really about blues, coming of age, growing up, being a man and finding out what that means"

  • Me against the world, Tupac
    4. Tupac Me Against the World

    "Tupac is my favorite rapper. I know a lot of people have their opinions on what’s their favorite Tupac album but for me Me Against the World is his best."

  • The Cold Vein
    5. Cannibal Ox The Cold Vein

    "El P production to me is so different and really jarring. It actually took me a while to really listen to it and enjoy the album. It’s just a really different feel. It kind of had like that post-apocalyptic feel."
