There may be a lot of classic rap albums, but there are even more rappers who have dope catalogs with no definitive classic. Remember when Robert De Niro's character in A Bronx Tale said, "The saddest thing in life is wasted talent"? Well, get that out of your head. That's not what we're saying at all. Every artist on this list has had a relatively great career, filled with many highlights. It's just that none of them have a cohesive, borderline perfect project that has absolutely stood the test of time.

If anything, this entire ordeal is just frustrating for the listeners. Every rapper on this list is probably fairly content with the status of their career. Between these artists, them are dozens of hits, plaques, and chart-topping singles. But even so, it's a bit disappointing that none of have been able to release that full-length masterpiece during their time in the game. Many of these MCs still have a chance to make it happen, but in the meantime, we're venting. Here are 11 great rappers who, surprisingly, never had a classic album.
