This is meant to be the ultimate list of Rap Concept Albums ranked from Good to Best. A concept album has its tracks hold a larger purpose or meaning collectively than they do individually. This is typically achieved through a single central narrative or theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, or lyrical.
It began out of a love for Rock Operas like The Who’s Tommy and every Pink Floyd album from the 1970s. There are countless lists out there detailing all the great rock concept albums, but there is a serious lack of a comprehensive list of Rap Concept Albums. This is my effort to fix that. I also try to summarize each concept album to its single central narrative/story or theme.
This list of rap concept albums is updated frequently, as I listen to them.
