    Cool Classic Rap Albums

    A quote I follow:


    "The more you know, the more prepared you will be"




    "Remember back in the days, when niqqaz had waves, gazelle shades and corn braids"...I started searching for Rap Music that was meaningful. I Had just gotten out of high school (2002) and all I was hearing on the radio was 50 cent, nelly, and BS like that. The times of true Emcee-ing were long gone, yet I was not aware were it had gone. Every now and then I would hear and old-school classic being played, and wondered "who is that? What album did it come from?"





    Greatest Rap Albums of All-Time (in no particular order...except for number 1):





    1- Illmatic- Nas








    Coming out of Queens, NY, Nasir Jones (aka Nas, Nasty Nas, Nas Escobar, Nastradamus), created one of the best, if not THE best, albums of all time. "Illmatic" came out in the golden era of rap (early 1990's) and it is said to be the



    Best songs on the album: All of 'em!!! But if I had to choose:


    "It ain't hard to tell" (check out my sig)


    "Memory Lane"


    "NY state of mind"






    2- "Paid in Full"- Eric B. and Rakim

    3- "Lifestyles of the Poor and Dangerous"- Big L











    4- "The Low End Theory"- A Tribe Called Quest
















    5- "Strictly for my Ni66az"- Tupac

    "I never sleep, coz sleep is the cousin of death"

    I live in Astoria, about 5 minutes from QB, so I have love for all the folks that come out of The Bridge. One of my favorite posse cuts is Symphony, when Marley put together the Juice Crew All-Stars and they all just kicked it for 6 minutes straight!

    If we're talking classics, you have to do "Paid In Full" - Eric & Ra.

    Of course. Paid in Full is a classic album that should be heard by all true rap fans.



    Just updated the thread. Still not complete, but I'll get there.

    I like a lot of diff genres of music...Really big into Metal but I love good rap. Here's a list of albums I think are classics.

    2Pac - Me Against the World
    - Don Killuminati : 7 Day Theory

    The Notorious B.I.G - Ready To Die

    Nas - Illmatic
    - It Was Written
    - Stillmatic

    Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt

    Mos Def/Talib Kweli - Black Star

    Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

    Talib Kweli - Quality
    - Reflection Eternal(Train of Thought)

    Lupe Fiasco - Food and Liquor

    Wu-Tang Clan - Enter The 36 Chambers
    - Forever

    GZA - Liquid Swords

    Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

    Masta Killa - No Said Date

    Method Man - Tical

    Ghostface Killah - Ironman

    Eminem - The Slim Shady LP

    Dmx - It's Dark and Hell is Hot

    Jedi Mind Tricks - Violent By Design

    Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Vol. 1

    Jadakiss - Kiss Tha Game Goodbye

    Styles P - A Gangster and a Gentleman

    Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle

    Dr. Dre - The Chronic

    Big L - Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous

    Sorry If I didn't list any 80s Hip-Hop, I could just NEVER get into any of it, to happy for me. Even though you gotta give shout outs to Public Enemy, Run-DMC, The Beastie Boys, N.W.A, KRS-ONE. I see the influence and talent I just don't like it.
