    god that track is so hard
    that beat is like some subtle monster shit


  • I agree with everything you say, i can't come up with a f'n list from 98'-06,
    1. Aquemini - OUTKAST
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    I agree with you on this. Maybe I expect more to call an album a classic. I have seen a lot of good albums listed but nothing that I could speak in the same breath as something like Ready to Die, Low End Theory, 36 Chambers, etc...

    It kind of depresses me on the state of hip hop to see some of the albums on this thread listed as "classics". Most of them are good albums, but far from classic.

    Would it be too cliche to write "trill" here?

    I would actually consider trill to be very near classic. But i am fully aware that this is mostly in my mindgarden.

    I am glad we are now all in agreement that thug motivation 101 is most definitely a classic album.

    Also dont sleep on ninjafish,

    i was still in the industry in 98/00. i hardly remember the records i was working. i have all those records still sitting on shelves or in boxes but i cant remember any lines from the records, the singles that came off of it, or even who was working the product at the time. i can do that for music pre 97 though. as can most of my friends. all my folks who are post 30 dont listen to todays rap music. not really. were still all reciting lines from biggie, o.k. and tribe songs.

    just saying... i like some of todays rap music but i only go out maybe once a month to buy a couple of cds as oppossed to going to the store throughout the week to buy new records that i heard on the radio or from friends.

    rap music just isnt the same to me anymore.

    I think rap scientists/ staticians of the future will note that the when Rap/ Hip Hop entered its corporate phase (around '98 to present) it became a singles game/ singles market.

    Rap has been a singles game for most of its history; that brief window where it was album oriented is a historical anomaly.

    We certainly do have a lot of rockists on this board.
