"The Lesson's Favorite Hip Hop Albums (Results)"


  

          

First off, shout out to everyone who contributed, not only for taking the time to fill out a list and make this actually worth posting results for, but for nobody fucking up and not failing to put an order, and most of the time including the artist and album title. That made accumulating everything a whole lot easier.

In total, 27 users submitted lists containing 256 different albums by over 150 different artists.

17 albums were placed in one or more user's #1 slot, 71 landed in at least one user's top 5 and 122 were in a top 10.

I'm going to follow up this post with replies with additional stats to call out the artists that did the best, the years that ranked highest and then some awards for users who submitted ballots.
