Top 5 Double Rap Albums of All-Time, According to Me

Rockers and R&B heads had long been in the business of indulging the gluttonous appetites of their fans with double albums—long before rappers took up the trade. Honestly, it took 2Pac’s seminal 1996 double effort, All Eyez On Me, to make the practice trendy in hip-hop nation.

Fresh out of the bing, ’Pac hit the studio to begin recording his Death Row Records debut. He’d joined the West Coast powerhouse while incarcerated, and with so much to get off his chest, the sessions produced an epic output for his fifth studio album. So the powers that be decided to give ’Pac’s army of thugs what they wanted, 27 tracks of Mr. Shakur at his finest. Of course, the success of the album would inspire his peers to follow suit. From the greats—Biggie, Jay-Z and Nas—to the lesser knowns, like Lil Flip, rappers saw fit to maximize their output.

Today, with Bow Wow and Flo Rida talking about doubling up for their next release, I feel compelled to 1) Advise them both to not to do it, and 2) Share my Top 5 double albums of all time.

The list is brief, because let’s face it, this twofold approach ain’t for everyone. I’m sure Jay and Nas would agree that their double albums, Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse and Street Disciple, respectively, weren’t their finest product. And while I would love to put OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/Love Below on here, I can’t truthfully co-sign it knowing that while I think Love Below is one of the best pieces of music in the past decade, I’ve probably listened to the Speakerboxx maybe twice. Nevertheless I’ve got this exclusive list of albums that are my go-to Top 5 double albums of all-time. —Rondell Conway

Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death
Released: March 1997
Disc 2 > Disc 1

I still vividly remember the day this album came out. I copped it at the old Virgin Megastore on 34th street. Just listening to the first four tracks on Disc 1; it had the feel of a classic. The Mad Rapper skit was crazy. Still, as much as I was feeling the joints on the first disc—“Hypnotized,” “Fuckin’ You Tonight,” “Ten Crack Commandments”—I really connected with the second disc. Given that I was on my knucklehead shit back then, tracks like “Niggas Bleed,” “You’re Nobody” and “My Down Fall” had me on that Brooklyn bullshit for real. Overall, this album is flawless in my eyes.

  • FloridaBoy

    what about Tru? (No Limit) that double cd was classic

    • nunya

      ROTFLMFAO….no the fuck it wasn’t…lol.

      And I was a No Limit fan, but that shit had only like 4 good songs.

      Down South Hustlaz was dope. How ya Do Dat? and Dj Screw’s South Park…shit was hard.

    • kb

      where is master p da last don

    • Makaveli 1671

      Eightball double cd Lost was the best to me

    • Keyser soulja

      nah they are talking about classics Tru had some classic cuts but it had a lot of filler. I love like 5 cuts on that cd and Smoking green is my favorite rap song and I don’t even smoke but P had a lot of B.S. on that CD maybe he should’ve just gave Silkk money instead of letting him rhyme lol

  • Worley

    10 Crack Commandments is on Disc 2 just like the best tracks on Wu Forever.

  • Duval

    b-dogg thank you these niggas is ignorant or just dumb as fuck for not having my homies on this list like E-40 and Bone but them shitty double cd’s aint got nothing on Scarface My Homies Florida boy and Cramzy are right too

  • http://Pierzy11@gmail.com Pierzy

    Disc 2 of Wu-Tang Forever not only has “Triumph,” but also “Duck Seazon” and “The M.G.M.” along with other bangers (minus “Black Shampoo”). That might be my favorite album ever period.

  • Dinero

    “Today, with Bow Wow and Flo Rida talking about doubling up for their next release, I feel compelled to 1) Advise them both to not to do it, and 2) Share my Top 5 double albums of all time.”

    I hope they do drop them cuz their careers will flop from it… None of those guys are even worth listening to for entire album let alone a double… lmao… But, yea, I would advise them not to on tha fact that Soulja man copy’n ass will try to drop one too… so I hope their labels tell them otherwise… Plus Bow Wow is not gonna hav a double album before Weezy (now Weezy for certainly is goin to drop a double album, damn kids) it jus doesnt make since for Cash Money… And I’m pretty sure Atlantic is not going to b behind Florida come time to release…

  • Sha

    This list is extremely suspect…..

    Where’s Gangstarr’s FULL CLIP????

    Are we talking MTV friendly double albums or are we talking hip-hop?

    • Lowedwn

      B EZ and do the knowledge before crying foul. Full Clip was a best of album with I believe 3 new songs at the time.

      But…that shit still knocks right along with the rest of these.

    • Fireforreal

      Gangstarr’s full clip ? are you a kid who just saw it in the store and never looked at it read the track listing ? it was a fucking greatest hits collection. It had only 3 new songs the rest were from there previous albums and sountracks. Get your facts straight kid. Were not talking about greatest hits and all that shit were talking about actual albums with all new songs.

    • DV8

      FULL CLIP was a greatest hits album. The albums listed where new material releases.

  • http://xxl.com funkadelikk

    • nunya

      WTF you commentators smoking? Seriously, you are joking about dipset and no limit double discs right?

      • BIGNAT

        more like where is speakerboxx/love below

  • Curtis75Black

    If ya’ll read it correctly, The man is talking about HIS 6 favorites. Maybe he should’ve bolded the MY in the advertisement. I do agree with Sha though, Gangstarr’s FULL CLIP is sick even for a greatest hits. That was paid for twice.

    • Dinero

      Thas watt I thought…. Tha title says clearly, “According to me”…. at tha end so I dont know why people are critizin him instead of postin their own Fav 5 dbl albums… Thas plain ole ignorance…. its okay to disagree but he is not wrong for like’n watt he likes….

  • El Tico Loco

    That’s why I didn’t ask about Celph Titled’s “The Gatalog” because that’s just part of MY list.

  • aj moore

    diplomatic immunity then lost (8-ball) then scarface then tru

  • lil_b504

    What about bone thugs n harmony “The Art of War” That was a classic album from Bone and still the best album from them.

    • CR Rebel

      Co fukkin sign!!!

      Art of War is so dope how did they leave out.

      ….

      DUMBASS IT IS ON THE LIST!!

  • Axeo

    I was born and raised in California but Wu-Tang Forever gets my vote. Lyrics on point and both disc didn’t have much if any filler(I never did finish one listen of Black Shampoo).I still listen to As High As Wu-Tang Get, Severe Punishment,Older Gods,A Better Tomorrow,It’s Yours, Triumph,Impossible,Deadly Melody,Bells of War, and The M.G.M on a regular basis.

    There wasn’t no Virgin Megastore on 34th Street!

  • Terrence Hanton

    There was never a Virgin Megastore on 34th Street, so you must be mistaking for either Times Square or 14th Street…… B.I.G – ALL DAY!

  • http://www.bboycult.com $yk

    “I copped it at the old Virgin Megastore on 34th 14th street.”

    ^ come on Rondell, the commenter’s ain’t supposed to fix stuff like that fam.

    • http://www.soundclick.com/pesproduksionz DaMadDominican

      I figured he meant times square cuz the 14th street one is not as old as the times square one, I think 14th street was built a little after they opened that circuit city that used to be on that same block like maybe 2001 or 2002. Oh and for the record I think “The City” on WU’s double cd is one of the illest beats I’ve ever heard!

  • Lord Maximus

    1. 2pac All Eyez On Me
    2. Notorious B.I.G. Life After Death
    3. Outkast Speakerboxxx/The Love Below
    4. Eightball Lost
    5. Wu-Tang Clan Wu-Tang Forever

    And Diplomatic Immunity? Like for real? That album’s cornier than a piece of shit. Got like 2 decent tracks on it. I’d rather listen to DJ Khaled scream, “We the Best!!!” for a whole double album.

    • kedordu

      wasnt 8 ball a triple cd lol .

  • mutt82

    BONE, BONE, BONE, BONE, BONE, and mo BONE

  • Q461

    The only 3 double albums that needed to be double in my opinion: all eyez on me, life after death, and wutang forever.

    Art of war was ok but had too much filler. Same with Blueprint 2 and Street Disciple. I always thought that Nas should have combined I am and Nstrdamus into a double album after he trimmed the fat of both. Shit woulda been classic.

    Theres no market for a double album today. Niggaz can’t even move one album, no record company is gonna invest in two. Think how much shit would leak ahead of time. Theres no place for it in the digital age, that format is out. The only artist I could see being capable of it right now : you guessed it, the whiteboy.

    • http://www.bboycult.com $yk

      “Theres no market for a double album today. Niggaz can’t even move one album, no record company is gonna invest in two.”

      ^ I’m surprised some of these labels even invested in some of these cats’ one album…

    • http://xxlmag jayruckNYC

      Actually I think It Was Written was supposed to be a double album. I dont why he changed it.

  • Q!thaGreat!

    I personally think the list should have went this way

    1. 2pac-All Eyez On Me
    2. Outkast-Speakerboxxx/The Love Below
    3. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony-The Art of War
    4. Notorious B.I.G.-Life After Death
    5. Wu-Tang Clan-Wu-Tang Forever

    …and I agree there is no market for a double album and no artist talented or popular enough to pull it off properly in the present.

  • zayzkidd

    My top 5 double CD albums:

    1. 2Pac – All Eyes On me
    2. The Art of War – Bone
    3. Life After Death – Biggie
    4. 2Pac – R U Still Down
    5. UGK – Underground Kingz

    All Eyes On Me is the only double-album that has no fill-in songs. Probably every song could have hit high on the charts.

  • Chuck Dane

    1. All Eyez On Me
    2. Killer (Tech N9ne) <- Check this shit out
    3. The Art of War
    4. Life After Death
    5. Underground Kingz

    I don’t really think Speakerboxx/The Love Below has any business on hip hop double disc’s, that disc is more like something you’d expect from BEP, borderline if its even hip hop.

  • Anonymous

    Dope list but no Marshall Mathers LP? That shit goes hard on every listen

    • big farty

      lol

  • Biggie Aka. The G.O.A.T.

    I don’t know why people dick ride on Tupac so much, He honestly didn’t have that great of skills as a lyricist. His career is just controversy like Paris Hilton, If he weren’t dead we wouldn’t be talking about him right now. That album does have its songs but its not as great as people perceive it. Life After Death, That’s The Notorious B.I.G.’s last stand man and he doesn’t disappoint worst joint on that album probably be top five on All Eyez on Me. Please people go to your I Tunes or whatever and throw on Hypnotize one time for me. Dreams, Sky is the Limit, Going back to Cali, I Love The Dough, Kick in The Door… God Damn, Its his last album before he died and the name of the album is READY TO DIE! Come on…

    My list… Top Five Hip-Hop Double Albums All-Time:
    1. Ready To Die – Notorious B.I.G.
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    • Kali

      Tupac had lyrics and delivery that reached a lot of people….to compare him to Paris makes you sound like a idiot with no credibiltiy on hiphop.

  • Biggie Aka. The G.O.A.T.

    My fucking bad Biggie, Y’all know i meant Life After Death. Just got frustrated with all the Tupac Dick riding…. LIFE AFTER DEATH.

  • http://www.iap-tv.com Harra$$dadon- Google it bitch!

    Dude obvouis u aint a street cat! Tupac than Biggie. fuck the lyrics ride in the hood and live the shit. play the album pac right there with you.! I love B.i.G but pac talk to your soul……And that UGK and Eightball Aint no ho either.

  • TELL IT LIKE IT IS

    MAN 2PAC SET THE STANDARD ON THE DOUBLE DISC SHIT, THEN 8BALL & BIGGIE, WUTANG, DEFINITELY MASTER P. THEN BONE. HERES THE REAL ORDER.

    2PAC
    MASTER P LAST DON
    BIGGIE
    8BALL AND UGK
    BONE
    WUTANG.
    TRU

    ANY NIGGA WHO SAY 2PAC DOUBLE DISC NOT NUMBER 1 IS TRIPPIN..THAT CD WENT HARD IN THE RIDE OR AT THE HOUSE..AND THAT MASTER P LAST DON CD WAS THE SHIT. SHOUTS OUT TO 8BALL LOST IS A CLASSIC TOO. I KNOW YALL THINK IM TRIPPIN, BUT MASTER P LAST DON WENT HARD

  • detroit by way of 6mile

    i think UGK got the best double album ever but they ain’t on here so its undoubtedly B.I.G IMO life after death is better everything on this list all eyez on me nice but me against the world is the best pac album all eyez on me was kinda pop compared to me against the world life after death was down right grimey even the skits and songs for the ladies

    • Detroit Dave

      That UGK double CD has to be on this list period. But you know XXL is a mainstream magazine and well UGK does stand for Underground Kankz! UGK 4 LIFE.

    PLEASE ALL EYES ON ME IS ACTUALLY BETTER THAN MICHEAL JACKSONS HISTORY . SO ITS NOT EVEN IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS ANYOTHER RAP . AND ITS BY FAR HIS BEST WORK . ME AGAINST THE WORLD WAS LIKE THE DYNASTY ALBUM FOR TUPACS BLUEPRINT . AND SONICALLY ITS JUST WAY BETTER THAN LIFE AFTER DEATH . I LIKED READY TO DIE MORE .

    ALL EYES ON ME
    SPEAKER BOXX LOVE BELOW
    ART OF WAR
    LIFE AFTER DEATH
    KURUPTION ( YOU ARE ALL RETARDS FOR SLEEPIN ON THIS CD )

    THE ONLY WAY DETOX IS GONNA BE A CLASSIC IS IF ITS A DOUBLE OR TRIPLE CD )ONE BONUS JOINT FOR EXTENDED PARTY REMIXES OR AN INSTRUMENTAL .

    • http://xxlmag jayruckNYC

      Yea Kuruption was a good CD. Too bad it didnt come out on Death Row during they prime. It would of blew out the water.

        ACTUALLY NATE DOGG G FUNK CLASSICS IS BETTER THAN KURUPTION SO ILL FLIP IT AND REPLACE IT WITH THAT . OH YEA IT WAS RATED 4 MICS IN THE SOURCE . THE ONLY RAP/RNB ALBUM TO BE RATED BYTHEM WHEN THEY HAD CRED .

  • Jeezy

    Tupac had more street cred than Biggie, Was that actually your comment? I am sorry bro, But there are pics of Tupac doing fucking Valet, Thugs do valet? I mean for real, Its a wide known fact that a lot of the stuff that Tupac did was for show. The man was a college educated actor… Jada Pinkett Smith his performing arts classmate has been quoted as saying that Tupac wasn’t what people thought. I know she didn’t mean that as a diss or as something derogatory towards Tupac but he did a lot of things to get reactions from people and to present a perception of thug. I just don’t see how you could say that Tupac was more from the streets than Biggie. In content some of Tupac’s content was amazing, he touched on some incredible subjects that a lot of people wouldn’t but as it pertains to the streets, Its B.I.G. Notorious was the streets he lived the life style he talked about he sold. He hustled, ran the corners, He got his. The name of his last album before he died was Life After Death.

    At first Pac was confused yeah conflicted yeah, smart as hell, yeah thug hell yeah he was a little bit of everything, your on bigs nuts too hard to realize that. Pac was a beast and he lived that shit, his persona on cd eventually consumed him in real life. Yeah so when he first was comin up he had his awkward moments but what teenagers dont?

    Im from Detroit and I know about marshall mathers AKA Eminem and yea he is a fraud. Eminem tries to claim detroit as if hes from here and acts as if he had some terrible life … stop it lol. Eminem is not from detroit he grew up in a farmtown in missouri and even when he did live in michigan it was in a all white suburb called warren which was very safe at the time his high school lincoln high only had 1 black kid in the entire school it was 98% white at the time. A few people have came out and exposed marshall for lying about his life and making up stuff.

    Not to mention marshall whines and cries in half his tracks about regular shit that everyone goes through if not much worse. Take me for example, my life and childhood was 10 times worse then what marshall says his was yet you dont see me crying and being a bitch about it … talking shit about my mom when Im nearly 40 years old (Im talking about him Im only 29). eminem is a complete fraud yes he can rap but his subject matter is garbage no real niggas relate to his lame shit. marshall is just a fake.

    - Tech N9ne: Killer
    - Esham: Sacrificial Lambz

      “THATS BIGGIE,JAY-Z AND MOST OF NEW YORK RAPPERS FOR YOU!!”

      ^ here we go with that bullsh^t.

      You acting like Pac didn’t have friends in the Wu, Treach from Naughty By Nature (NJ is tri-state), and Buckshot from Black Moon, east coast, NY cats.

      Listen to “Hit ‘Em Up” again and think about all the NY guys he DIDN’T name. Watch “Juice” again and see more of the rappers he didn’t name.

      C’mon son.

    2Pac is overrated as fuck! He’s the white kids’ favorite rapper. No real niggas I know, in the hood, bump Pac. I mean some did 10-15 years ago, but not anymore. Some y’all live in la la land aka the ‘burbs.

    However, I still find myself bumpin’ the greatest rapper of all-time AKA B.I.G.

    Top 5, dead or alive:
    1. The Notorious B.I.G.
    2. Killah Priest
    3. GZA
    4. Masta Ace
    5. Jay-Z

    BK all day!

    • PAC WAS THE REALEST

      DAMN YOUR EARS ARE BLEEDIN THEN,,, MAN REAL NIGGAS FEEL PAC AND OBVIOUSLY YOU AINT A REAL NIGGA.CAUSE PAC HAD EAST COAST ROOTS AND IT WAS NEVER DENIED….YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER WAS SCHOOLED BY HIM.. COME ON SON WISE UP

  • matty21

    HAHAHAHAHAHA I just looked up your myspace and I see that youre a complete eminem dick rider even to the point that you go on haystak hate myspace pages and youtube videos just to defend him and hate on haystak. Just some lame ass suburban kid whos so ugly he wont even put his picture up on his myspace so he puts a dog there hahahahaa.

    Look, kid, Im actually from the hood of the Nap Town 22nd on the northside a place that youd never step foot in since youre from way in the suburban outskirts of Indiana. My name has 1 N, yours has 2. Let it go kid youre just some suburban kid who dickrides eminem just like every other suburban white boy. get marshall maters baby dick out your mouth bitch. Youre just some 35 year old loser who has no social life and is too ugly to get a girl that sits in your room in your parents basement all day playing video games.

  • NAPTOWNUISANCE

    HAHAHAHA look up NAPTOWNNUISANCE bio on gameinformer This wigga is 35 years old and he sits around all day reading comic books, playing video games, and commenting on here in his basement of his parents home in the suburbs. Just like the guy on the 40 year old virgin, which is exactly what youll be in a few years. He says it on his own gaminformer bio hahaha ahahaha.

    Look guy youre just some 35 yr old white suburban gangsta wannabe that had a easy life growing up and doesnt know shit. No real niggas are fans of eminem and especially dickride him as much as you do. Get your lips off eminems baby dick keep listening to your popcorn bubble gum rap like soulja boy and eminem. Stay in your safe suburb away from the danger of the ghetto and keep living your easy life but dont get involved with the ghetto and real niggas like me and dont ever pretend to be real.

  • NAPTOWNUISANCE

    Hahaha ahahah ahahaha. It looks like I got the little bitchboy mad. Look guy youre just some 35 year old wigga wannabe gangsta from the outskirts of the Nap youre some near middle aged loser who sits around reading comics, playing every video game ever invented, and commenting on websites all day for the past 20 fuckin years.

    Ive been to Fountain square plenty of times and its mostly white people a soft ass hood that hasnt been hard in 15 years, and even back then it was even more white then now. Haughville??? dont make you laugh you wigga. I see your picture on your gameinformer bio and your some ugly flabby gangsta wannabe you listen to mostly rock music you dickride eminem on every website and are just some failed aspiring white rapper who never made it. You play guitar watch nascar and do country redneck ass shit that no real nigga from the hood would ever do.

  • NAPTOWNUISANCE

    I never met a real nigga in my life that was a fan of eminem. Go to a eminem concert or watch them on youtube, his fanbase is literally 99% white. No niggas or chicos listen to eminem because we cant relate to his popcorn whiny ass rap. All he does is whine in all of his songs about his easy ass life, just like you probably do. My life was a lot harder then his and I dont sit around and cry about it all day and act like I been through more then I have to make people feel sorry for me… plus eminems not even from the hood hes from missouri and warren michigan just like youre from the white outskirts of da nap. All of eminems fans are white and from either the suburbs, the trailer park, or some farm somewhere like you.

    Give up kid youre just some suburban faggot who had a easy life growing up and dickrides eminem on every website because youre white have no life and can somehow relate to him. But stay in your parents basement in the suburbs youre a virgin at 35 years old never seen a glimpse of pussy in your life. Your hood is soft youre on here talking shit as if youre some real nigga when youre just a wannabe like marshall mathers hahaha ahahaha ahahaha. You lose guy just give up and leave this shit to the real niggas. No my favorite rapper of all time is probably Biggie he was a real nigga and he had never even heard of eminem so leave it alone. You lost, now give up.
