godamn, gets better with every listen
It is very good, I should listen to it more. Shook Ones Part II, word is born.
And yeah. In my all time top 5 hip-hop records. Classic.
Did you see theShipment post the link to all the old hip-hop mixes 79-99? So many dope tracks...
thanks for the link!
'dope' was dope then. I've never been particularly fond of it, but its never really bugged me out.
So do you like mobb deep or what?
Hell on Earth is also very strong. They fell off pretty spectacularly after Murda Muzik although Prodigy's first solo album is worth checking out.
This is very correct.
with the roll deep compilation and rock bottom by robert wyatt.
Top 10 or so for sure, Hell on Earth is almost as good if you havent listened to that yet.
Favorite cut other than Survival Of The Fittest or Shook Ones 2?
I'd have to go with Cradle to the Grave I spoze. Kind of a tough call.
Every single bar is quotable and the beat, however simple, is the ultimate head knocker, love how it just rides out for the last minute +

but one I have been listening to recently after many years. This album has dated well and is still a stone cold classic.
I listened to 'Hell on Earth' for the first time in a decade the other day, and I realised that the production is more consistent. It doesn't have a 'Survival of the Fittest' or 'SO Pt II' on it, but the sound is more consistent, and much tougher.
I'm not saying it's a better album, mind. There's a reason I only found out it had a hidden track the other day.
come pretty damn close to rivaling Survival and Shook Ones. I actually may think that Hell On Earth is better now \O_0/
had never heard it.
