    808s and heartbreak isn't even a hip hop album

    The Chronic was more influential to hip hop, while 808s & heartbreak was more influential to R&B

    808s is Chad's favorite Kanye West album...it's a lot closer than C-Wizzy would like to admit, but Chad will have to say The Chronic.

    Both extremely influential albums, it's actually a comparison that makes sense for once.

    I prefer 808s to The Chronic.

    But I think The Chronic was more influential.

    The Chronic is one of the greatest albums ever made and a classic

    808s is the 2nd worst album ever made and beyond terrible

    Definitely The Chronic, that album was basically the blueprint of West Coast Hip Hop.
    808's? It's good...
