    controversial but you know its true:



    and I think this has aged surprisingly well considering his latter day market saturation:

    Yeah, if you are a gay man or 13 year old white girl. Those are the only people I can think of that would bump this without looking over their shoulder to see who is there first.

  • Co-sign on Purple Haze and Doomsday.

    PLUS 



  • PLUS the Ghostface albums.

    why do you pretend to like rap

    What about Non-Phixion/Necro? I guess you could put "Future Is Now" up there. I didn't love it all that much, but it has a decent following.

    hahaha

    I don't agree with ruff ryders, i never listened to screwball, i'm impartial to that lox album, but I agree with purple haze. and get this, i don't care if i get hated on or laughed at, but Hustler's P.O.M.E. is a great recent rap album from NY. yes I said great. And yes I'm talking about Jim Jones. This is the first great thing he's done. I hated him last year. Go ahead let it out...

    oh and I did try to listen to Sean Price's new album by the way... sounds like

    This is a overlooked gem not great but a very good album though.

    I prefer the 2nd Screwball album "Loyalty" over the first.

    M.O.P. - Warriorz is a good album also.

    Pimps Don't Pay Taxes is fucking fantastic.

  • Spinna had some raps on it. Eminem I think.

    Also what about Dooley-O. He sons all rappers outside of the tristate. I mean show me you can rap above 76PBM kids.
