    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)

    "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
