Beastie Boys Ill Communication is hands-down (to me) the best rap album ever. The entire album is amazing. BB paved the way for artists such as (and most notably) Eminem. The album produced such hits as Sabotage (which produced possibly the greatest music video of all time) and Sure Shot. My wife got me hooked on this album (thankin’ you, Babe!). Off the hook awesome.
