    Cuban Linx is a top 3 rap album of all time imo. Not that the others aren't classics, there's just only one or two albums total I'd feel comfortable ranking over Cuban Linx.

    OB4CL
    Liquid Swords
    Ironman
    Tical
    36 Chambers

    OB4CL still amazing, think I just prefer the opulent extravaganza over GZA's intricate verses just by a hair. We need to talk about how m--- bodied both those albums on hook duties & that verse on Shadowboxin'

    I'm not sure if I can rank these. All I know is that Tical is definitely last. But the other albums were huge to me in my early Hip Hop years.

    GZA claims he wrote a decent amount of Return to the 36 Chambers and listening back to it now, it's really obvious
