16. Juggaknots-Clear Blue Skies
Released in: 1996
Label: Fondle ‘Em
While the Juggaknots’ first album, Clear Blue Skies, isn’t the masterwork that it could be (some of the beats are just terrible), a few of its tracks are the best and most poignant in rap history. The title track is obviously the greatest, featuring a story of a father talking shit against his son’s black girlfriend, while “Loosifa,” is haunting in how loose and light it’s handled. It’s a rare and hard to find album, but a great listen all the same. At least most of it is. Try to find it.
Best track: Clear Blue Skies

15. Viktor Vaughn-Venomous Villain
Released in 2004
Label: Insomniac, Inc.
Okay, so here’s where we might disagree. Yes, we know Vaudeville Villain is the more beloved album of the two, but we just prefer Viktor Vaughn’s (Another alias by, who else, MF Doom) sophomore release because of its pacing and flow. “R.A.P.G.A.M.E.” “Dope Skill,” and “Doper Skill,” are three excellent tracks that flow seamlessly with each other, as do all the tracks on this deliciously constructed release from the metal-masked villain. We approve.
Best track: Ode to Road Rage
