Greatest rap album ever?
My sister's boyfriend stole my copy when I was 12. I can't believe this is what I listened to when I was 12.
good party album though. Xxplosive is a tune. And it introduced me to Devin the Dude as well.
greatest rap album ever.
fear of a black planet. they both stand at the top.
The production is top notch though, sounds wonderful. For a glossy gangsta rap album you'll struggle to do better I reckon. It's an absurdly fun, quotable record.
Snoop's verse on Fuck You? Honestly one of my faves ever. I laugh out loud each and every time. Probably makes me a bad person or something.
party album? yea
glossy gangsta rap album? probably
and I don't work in a call centre...
. . . greatest rap / hip hop album ever. 2001 is fun though.
Some amazing verses. The second verse of Forgot About Dre is one of my favourites of all time. I remember trying to learn how to do the whole thing when i was 13.
My two favourites
GZA- Liquid Swords
Cannibal Ox- The Cold Vein
I still listen to Cold Vein and think 'Where the f**k did this come from?'. It seems both lyrically and musically alien. Also one of the only instances i've bothered with an instrumentals album as well.
Mr Lif, EL-P, Company Flow et al
I have been listening to I'll Sleep When You Are Dead a lot as of late, its class. The tune about falling in love on a spaceship is amazing
El-P- Fantastic Damage
Company Flow- Funcrusher Plus
Both are great. Been tempted to try the (not so) recent El-P album as all I hear is good.
On some albums i find it hard to make out what he is rapping about but on ISWYD his vocals are a lot higher in the mix. Plus, the lyrics and beats are on point as per....go get it
Maybe top 50... maybe.
