Damn i need to stop, but I dont think its honestly any kinda exagerration to say ALL these albums are must hears for real hip hop fans.

Dam what a year. Honestly, just 10 years later, I think we'd all be happy with just a couple of albums of this quality in 2011.

I guess I own more albums from that year than any of the last 5 years, but it was a standard year overall. Also KMD doesn't count.

Those are indeed dope albums but I think 2000 was still a weak year. Your original post has a lot of albums there that were, and still are considered flops.

It is trivial that SC was the best album that year.

I think '99 was way better and more recent, 2003, 2006 and 2007 were better. If you made this thread to acknowledge 2000, 10 years ago then thats fine....there are jewels that were made in that year, I agree.

Me too, that might have been a gift and a curse because more Hip Hop was coming out based on chart-topping, radio single, pop appeal, but because of that some artist started to emerge and rebel against it with the traditional sound and ideals of Hip Hop.

There are some outstanding weaknesses of 2000 because of more artists sucking up to the commercial spotlight, but also some gems here and there from artists on the underground that started to rebel against the corporate machine controlling Hip Hop.

^This album came out at just the right time, Bumpy kicked the uncut truth over dope production.

Overall, I think 2000 was alright, there was alot of music coming out and some of it was classic.

It's unfortunate that for all the good albums that came out, in my memory this era is still stained with mass materialism, commercialism and confusion of artists rushing for the support of the corporate world, all of which were illusions now gone due to the internet and changes in the economy.

Those artists who remained true to themselves and didn't sell out while corporations exploited the music and culture in 2000 are still here: Pharoahe, Dead Prez, Reflection Eternal, Bumpy, Outkast, Common, Wu etc.

I was just thinking about it recently, how hip hop was dope on the entry of new century, especially for that alternative underground stuff.

How can you say that and then say it was a weak year? There was a near classic album for every month!

Shit

Stankonia, Fantastic Vol2, Supreme Clientele, Like Water For Chocolate, The W, Warriorz ALONE make it a classic year. THese are some of my all time favorite albums.


Then throw in shit like The Platform, Dynasty, Train OF Thought, the Dead Prez and JMT album, damn this year is incredible.

No way 03 05 and 07 had better albums, no way. Youre crazy.

one could easily name a handful of albums from any year of those album's you've listed caliber.

As for me; I think that 1998 was hiphop's most recent classic year; all I need to say is It's Dark and Hell is Hot and Capital Punishment and all of the other surefire bangers from then.

I think 2000 is a somewhat pivotal year in hip-hop. 2000 cant come close to any year in the 90's, even '99. I think there are a few years in the double-0's that can contest with 2000. On one hand thats the year that I was in the middle of high school so I should have some favour but then I see it how it is. I remember discussions on websites forums in '03 and '04 discussing how hip-hop turned to shit and the year was 2000 as its mark.

There are certainly classic albums in 2000, no denying that, SC and Back for the First Time could make my top 25. An ill year for the decade but a sub-par-to-par year for hip-hop in general.
