I'm convinced hip-hop heads would make great historians. We love to argue, and knowing when things happened is very, very important. We love looking back at hip-hop's brief yet rich history and seeing how far we've come. We also love listening to albums.  So I figured combining both would make for one hell of a quiz.

Below you will find ten groups of three albums. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to pick the year that each group of three were released.  If you're right, you'll be directed to a stream of one of the albums for your reward. Choose incorrectly, and you will be mocked with a GIF of our choosing ranging from Kanye to kittens. If you feel the need to cheat, stop, look at what you are doing, take some time and reevaluate your life . Best of luck!

How'd you do? Harder than you thought right? Sometimes these quizzes are just random and have no real mark on your hip-hop expertise. I think this one, however, says a lot about your level of rap nerdery; if you can remember album release dates it shows that extra level of obsession we are looking for.Check back next week for a new quiz subject which I haven't even thought about yet.
