Rolling stone - The Chris Rock 25 -

rock on rap: America's funniest comedian picks the greatest hip-hop albums of all time

Nearly every moment when Chris Rock isn't onstage, he's listening to music. If he didn't happen to be one of the world's best comedians, he would have made an excellent music critic: He's been a hard-core hip-hop fan sinces the Eighties, and his 1993 satire of the rap industry, CB4, is still a cult favorite. So, in the interest of helping Rock develop a fallback career, we asked him to name his top twenty-five hip-hop albums.
