R&B Singer and Maybach Music Group veteran recording artist Omarion recently weighed in on his top five Hip Hop Albums of all time.
Omarion, who has over eleven years of experience in the recording industry, both as a member of a group and as a solo artist has earned the credentials that affords his opinion some significant gravity when weighing in on topics such as this.
“Definitely Tupac’s The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory. That’s a classic,” kicked off the MMG artist, of the album Tupac released—as Makaveli, shortly after his 1996 death. The former Sony artist praised another album from a few months later that had that same posthumous promotion. “Definitely Life After Death by The Notorious B.I.G.,” he said of the 1997 Bad Boy Records release. Continuing, Omarion had a second album making his list from the Death Row Records catalog, this one from 1993. “The first Snoop Dogg album ever, Doggystyle. I want to say Kanye West‘s albums… but I want to say which one it is: 808’s & Heartbreak. People wouldn’t consider that a Hip Hop album, but I do because he’s a rapper.”
The former B2K Member, finished his list with Jay-Z’s Blueprint album. He says that he judges it based on whether or not he knows the lyrics to all the songs on the album. He says that sometimes he will hear a song and he will know the lyrics to that song that he never realize he knew the lyrics to. He says that is how he knows that the song is a classic.
