My Beef With Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" List

Ok so Rolling Stone magazine just released their "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" Issue. As I expected, they have like every Beatles album on the list (3 of which are in the top 10). No surprise there. Other typical entries include Bob Dylan, U2, Brue Springsteen, The Police, Michael Jackson, Prince, etc. Again, not surprising. Out of 500 albums, I'd say there may be 25 - 30 from the hip hop genre and the first entry doesn't appear until #48:

I'm not mad at that either. I own "It Takes A Nation..." and it is a masterpiece. Personally, I would've placed it in a higher position but whatever. Nas' "Illmatic" came in at #402. Ok fine. What concerns me is the fact that out of the few hip hop albums that made the list, this man's work is NOWHERE to be found:

^^That's 2PAC yall...2PAC DID NOT MAKE THE LIST. WTF & SMDH.

Somebody over there at Rolling Stone magazine needs to be FIRED.
im shocked.....they need to really re-analyze that list cus Tupac definitely deserves 2 spots.....one at least
agreed. lil' wayne's "tha carter III" made the list, but no 2Pac? its kinda insulting actually.
Tha Carter 3???
somebody should be fired

yep. C3 came in at #437. i aint mad at weezy either. but to have C3 on the list and no 2Pac is just wrong. and i have a feeling if i told you what other n!ggaz made the list (multiple times at that) you'd probably get mad.

fugg them suckaz azz rollin stones neggaz...rollin stones needa KICK ROCKS!! we cant let outsiders define OUR MUSIC!! im sure they got multiple beetels albums on there!!
1THUG...10. they put 10 Beatles joints on there, but no 2Pac. smh.

Nas, Jay-Z, Tupac, Big, Dr. Dre, LL Cool J????
if not, then that's some bullsh.it!!

aight Junior here's what it is according to RS. the greatest hip hop album ever is Public Enemy's "It Takes A Nation..." (#48). Jay Z nabbed 3 spots (#250 "Reasonable Doubt, #252 "The Blueprint", #349 "The Black Album")LL Cool J got 1 spot (#470 "Radio") Dre got one spot (#138 "The Chronic") and both Biggie albums made it (#134 "Ready To Die", #476 "Life After Death").

ok ok ok....those are some real classics.....

but almost every Tupac album is better than "The Black Album".....

"Life After Death" & "Radio" should have been way higher.....

i.....just....realized.....NO NAS?!?!?!

Nas' "Illmatic" made it...at an insulting #402 though.
im disgusted....fuc.king "Rolling Stones" think they got the right to disrespect hip-hop....
