1. The Element of Surprise (1998)

40-Water was always a great storyteller but on his 1998 album, The Element of Surprise, the boisterous big man spit with an unprecedented amount of angst. "Element of Surprise came at a time when I was mad. I was just on one," 40 revealed. "The beats was bringing it outta me, it was just real beastie. Them Rick Rock beats brought out my best."
