I liked Noz's list on the XXL blog so much that I had to make my own...based solely on what rap albums have garnered the deepest-seeded degree of perma-bump for me over the past 20 years. First I'll post Noz's list.Then I'll post mine.Then you post yours.

    Philly may have been too well-exposed to be called a "local scene".

    Hi Cosmo!

    Hi Cosmo!

    You dudes have clearly failed to process the first rule of 'baggeury: it's not called that when Shied does it.

    I think it may be referred to as "club compliance" in those situations.[/NYC chowderhead cling-tank]

    Noz is just being funny by rehashing some of the comments left on his blog in response to his list.

    I often wonder what happens to these commenters once they're, like, 30. Or maybe they already are?

    Noz:

    Do you find ANYTHING redeeming about the comments section? Just curious.

    Those are the same dudes who walk around telling other dudes how "hard" they are, and that they're all about the "raw shit".


    Homoerotic double entendres for days.

    I been telling him he needs to find a way to attract a better class of commenters--it doesn't even begin to compare to the constant party that is Tom Breihan's comment section.

    Comedy.

    There have been points where I've considered turning comments off completely, specifically after one reader went so far as to look up my parents names and post them. I might still do that.

    whoa, was that on some "you're a white guy so you don't know anything about hiphop" shit?

    I must be hte only rap fan who hates lists. I like reading other peoples' lists, but I have this mental problem were I cannot make my own lists. About anything. My mind draws an immediate blank.

    I liked your list, noz, not because I agreed with everything but because it's got a lot of variety.

    I'd rather make a list of albums that impacted me on a personal level. There are some mediocre albums in hindsight that hit pretty hard when I heard them.
