Hoodrats are either lovable or colorful weave-loving birds without sense or edges. Either way, they’re always entertaining (especially on TV) and fueled the most underrated music sub-genre ever: Hoodrat R&B.

Here are the ten greatest Hoodrat R&B albums of all-time. Take a look.

K. Michelle “Rebellious Soul”

The messy “Love & Hip-Hop: ATL” star’s debut album is Flamin’ Hot Cheeto soup for the hoodrat soul.

My+Life

Mary J. Blige “My Life”

Before she SANG crispy chicken carols in Burger King, she was the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul worshipped by an entire generation of thug love-scorned hood chicks.

Keyshia Cole “The Way It Is”

Say what you want about the squawky R&B bird, she was the face of Section 8 Soul who put her everything—heart, soul and two-toned weave—into this undeniable debut.

Fantasia “Back to Me”

Tasia Mae went from Idol winner to thirsty side chick to pregnant homewrecker stuck in a hopeless place and her music only got better.

The+Writings+on+the+Wall

Destiny’s Child “The Writing’s on the Wall”

It’s easily DC’s best album that showcased Beyonce’s finest hoodrat moments. “Pay my AUTOMOBILLLLLLS?” Yea…that happened.

Teedra Moses “Complex Simplicity”

Teedra had the most hood boogery of birds claiming they were complex yet simple when this classic album dropped.

After+The+Storm++8

Monica “After the Storm”

The classiest hoodrat of her era never quite evolved into the R&B superstar we expected BUT this album jammed.

61PZMXSO1-L

Nivea “Nivea”

At one point, she was the princess of Hood&B who solidified her legacy with “Laundromat.”

Shareefa_CD_-_Point_Of_No_Return

Shareefa “Point Of No Return”

Reefa was a perfect mixture of K. Michelle and Keyshia Cole who never reached her full potential as an artist. Blame DTP.

Electrik Red “How to Be a Lady: Volume 1”

Blink and you missed The-Dream’s intriguing Hoodrat R&B group that ended before it really started.
