We know some of you commenters won’t believe us, but at Complex we take our lists seriously. Real debate goes into what does and doesn’t make a list like the 90 Best Rap Albums of The 90s. We get together and argue...for hours. It’s actually pretty nerdy, but it’s fun. After the list is sorted out, we take a long time writing blurbs.

A lot of people spent a lot of time writing about rap albums from the ‘90s.

Like everyone else, the people who helped make this list have their own opinions about what this list should have been. So we asked them to provide us with their personal list of the 10 Best Rap Albums of the 1990s. And as a bonus, we asked them to name five albums they wish had made Complex’s original list. Here’s what they had to say...
