So the GOD Big Stacks asked me what ablums do I think are great and I realized I just posted albums from my hey-day and barely anything new. FOLLS give me a run-down of some dope LP's to check for that have come out post 1998. I'm pretty much into anything except that anticon stuff or that paul barmann shit, oh and I'm not saying "essential classic this will be talked about on Vh1 10 years from now" I'm just talking about some good dam rap albums.

    Attic still does production work w/ a bunch of canadian artists. Also still an avid collector, although I should let Moss speak on this one.....



    Mr. Murray (Nick) is doing production work for LAL and also putting out broken beat material on PTR. LAL is actually playing at the Jazz Cafe later this month opening for Terry Callier.



    Swiff I have no idea......



    now as magnetic mentioned, we need some Count Bass D appreciation here. This dude has put out some very solid material.

    Cam's Purple haze was one of the best recent rap lps for me. Also check The Mind of Mannie Fresh and TI's last one.

    Co-sizlature on the Devin, Masta Ace and Murs, though definitely not on the Sound Providers and their twinkly little beats & corny as hell raps.

    Attic's working. He just did 8 beats for the new Saukrates record, some shit for Kardy and he has some stuff going on in NY right now I can't really speak on just yet.... Outside of that he's digging as usual and we're working on an lp with Jake that's in the same vein as grassroots. It's about 60% recorded.



    If you liked the grassroots ish you should check out this lp/cd. The dist wasn't as big as people would have hoped, but it's a little gem;

  • johmbolayajohmbolaya 4,472 Posts
    So you heard all of the albums I put up, and only liked one? Not two, not five, not even 10, but one?

  • mrpekmrpek 627 Posts
    I'm sure I'm restating

    First half of RZA "Birth of a prince" was solid
    M.F. Doom "Operation Doomsday"
    D-Styles "Phantazmogorea" Only If you like scratchin
    Manny Fresh "Mind of Manny Fresh" got the dope skits and subject matter
    Andrae Niktina "Daquari Factory"
    J-Zone "Pimps Don't Pay Taxes" Kinda dope
    Z-man "anti-nerd"
    De LA "the grind date" Not %100 solid but some dope cuts
    Alchemist solo ... some may hate but I'm feelin it just solid beats and rhymes
    Count bass stuff

    so many more but I can't think right now
