WF GOAT Rap Album Tournament - Round 1
 
Fuck you, fuck you all. 195 individual albums were tallied (that obviously doesn't include the repeats). I had a fun time counting them all. :side:

Soooo how I did this was I copied down every album that was voted and then put numbers next to the amount of votes each one got. There were obviously ties and so I'll post the final 32 right below...

Spoiler for Final 32:

Ready to Die- B.I.G 11
Death Certificate - Ice Cube 11
Illmatic - Nas 11
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) - Wu-Tang Clan 10
The Chronic- Dr Dre 10
Me Against the World - Tupac 8
Straight Outta Compton- N.W.A 8
Paid in Full - Eric B. & Rakim 7
Reasonable Doubt- Jay Z 7
Doggystyle- Snoop Dogg 7
Marshall Mathers LP- Eminem 7
ATLiens- Outkast 6
Liquid Swords- GZA 6
2pac - 7 Day Theory 5
Aquemini - Outkast 5
Amerikkka's Most Wanted - Ice Cube 5
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx- Raekwon 5
The Blueprint- Jay Z 5
Life After Death- B.I.G 5
Meth and Red - Blackout 5
Run DMC - Raising Hell 5
Beastie Boys - Licensed To ill 5
2pac - All Eyez On Me 4
The Predator - Ice Cube 4
It Was Written- Nas 4
The Infamous- Mobb Deep 4
Slick Rick - The great adventures of 4
Big Daddy Kane - long live the kane 4
Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Mecca & the Soul Brother 4
Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back 4
Supreme Clientele- Ghostface Killah 3
The Diary- Scarface 3


The most notable being a three way tie for first between Illmatic, Death Certificate, and Ready To Die all at 11 votes. The top 32 ended in the 3 vote album category. There were still quite a few 3 vote albums left so I simply just took them off the top as they appeared in the list so unfortunately many were left hanging, but there's nothing I really could have done.

Anyways, as for the bracket...

(1)Notorious B.I.G. - Ready To Die vs. (32) Scarface - The Diary
(2)Ice Cube - Death Certificate vs. (31) Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele
(3)Nas - Illmatic vs. (30) Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
(4)Wu-Tang Clan - Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) vs. (29) Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Mecca & the Soul Brother
(5)Dr. Dre - The Chronic vs. (28) Big Daddy Kane - Long Live The Kane
(6)2pac - Me Against The World vs. (27) Slick Rick - The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick
(7)N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton vs. (26) Mobb Deep - The Infamous
(8)Eric B. And Rakim - Paid In Full vs. (25) Nas - It Was Written...
(9)Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt vs. (24)Ice Cube - The Predator
(10)Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle vs. (23)2pac - All Eyez On Me
(11)Eminem - Marshall Mathers LP vs. (22)Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill
(12)Outkast - ATLiens vs. (21)Run DMC - Raising Hell
(13)GZA - Liquid Swords vs. (20)Method Man and Redman - Blackout!
(14)2pac - The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory vs. (19)Notorious B.I.G. - Life After Death
(15)Outkast - Aquemini vs. (18)Jay-Z - The Blueprint
(16)Ice Cube - Amerikkka's Most Wanted vs. (17)Raekwon - Only Built For Cuban Linx

So some very interesting match ups. Even have ourselves a little Biggie/Pac showdown. I think all in all this a good bracket. A lot of even match ups due to the number of ties in the voting. Should be fun. I know that Smif and Wessun wanted to have Illmatic banned from the tournament, but in all honesty you'd just make it easier for Ready To Die or Death Certificate to make a run to the top. Illmatic may even get beaten. It looks like a fun tournament.

I urge anyone who hasn't listened to a certain album in a particular match up to go ahead and listen to it before you vote. Other than that, have fun and let the voting and discussion begin!

First round voting ends Friday November 16th at 11:59pm.

I own every single album on this list, huh. Some pretty brutal match ups in there, such a shame The Diary and Nation Of Millions are going out already.

So here we go:

(1)Notorious B.I.G. - Ready To Die vs. (32) Scarface - The Diary
(2)Ice Cube - Death Certificate vs. (31) Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele
(3)Nas - Illmatic vs. (30) Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back (seriously, I really don't think you can step to that record for quality or impact)
(4)Wu-Tang Clan - Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) vs. (29) Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Mecca & the Soul Brother
(5)Dr. Dre - The Chronic vs. (28) Big Daddy Kane - Long Live The Kane
(6)2pac - Me Against The World vs. (27) Slick Rick - The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick
(7)N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton vs. (26) Mobb Deep - The Infamous
(8)Eric B. And Rakim - Paid In Full vs. (25) Nas - It Was Written...
(9)Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt vs. (24)Ice Cube - The Predator
(10)Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle vs. (23)2pac - All Eyez On Me
(11)Eminem - Marshall Mathers LP vs. (22)Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill
(12)Outkast - ATLiens vs. (21)Run DMC - Raising Hell
(13)GZA - Liquid Swords vs. (20)Method Man and Redman - Blackout!
(14)2pac - The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory vs. (19)Notorious B.I.G. - Life After Death
(15)Outkast - Aquemini vs. (18)Jay-Z - The Blueprint
(16)Ice Cube - Amerikkka's Most Wanted vs. (17)Raekwon - Only Built For Cuban Linx

Shame that Licensed To Ill got in above the far superior Pauls Boutique cause I wanted to vote Beasties.

Hurts to see Mecca & The Soul Brother, The Diary, The Blueprint, & It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold us Back likely go out this early.

I was surprised to see two votes against it already, I like Blackout but come on. LS is my favorite hip hop record, I very rarely waver on that

Same here, I was one of the ones who nominated Blackout in the prelims but no way is it better than LS, Liquid Swords is the Wire of hiphop albums, unfuckwithable.
