Okay, I’d like to think I’ve got a fairly respectable collection when it comes to Hip-hop. I’ve got a fair few of the classics (from the 90’s) such as Illmatic, 36 Chambers, The Chronic, Ready to Die, Paid in Full etc. But I feel like I’m still missing out alot. This is a question for the TRUE…
Enta Da Stage – Black Moon
Whut? Thee Album – Redman
Breaking Atoms – Main Source
Strictly Business – EPMD
Critical Beatdown – Ultramagnetic MC’s
Dr. Octagonecologyst – Dr. Octagon
Straight Out The Jungle – Jungle Brothers
Amerikkka’s Most Wanted – Ice Cube
Geto Boys – Geto Boys
Mecca And The Soul Brother – Pete Rock & CL Smooth
Mr. Hood – KMD
well Masta Ace has two underrated classics, Disposable Arts and A Long Hot Summer.
Internal Affairs by Pharoahe Monch is also a masterpiece.
If you don’t already have Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords you will be needing those.
Illadelph Halflife by The Roots is one of my favourite albums of all time.
Food & Liqure and The Cool by Lupe Fiasco are two of the best albums of the 2000’s in my opinion…
…Along with Below the Heavens by Blu & Exile.
Also check out Will Rap For Food and SouthernUnderground by CunninLynguists.
And finally I will recommend the Black Star album by Mos Def & Talib Kweli.
Dont listen to those idiots above. NWA, Ice Cube, Dre Day, Snoop Dogg, Bone Crusher, and Southern smoke or Gangsta Grillz, Frayser Boy (Gone on that Bay), Three 6 Mafia, 2Pac, DJ Paul, Jay-Z (Hard Knock Life Vol. 2) I personally think Life After Death by Biggie is better than Ready 2 Die. Nas is ehhh..DJ Screw, DJ Drama, Bone Thugs’n’ Harmony, Ol’ Dirty Bastard (Return to the 36) Beastie Boys (Ill Communication)
