View Full Version : Best Three In A Row?

02-11-2011, 01:23 AM
I know everybody on here has got favorite albums, songs, verses etc... but even the less-than-classic albums have good tracks on them.

What's your top three songs in a row? I'll give my list as an example.

Iron Man's got Assassination Day, Poisonous Darts, Winter Warz

Reasonable Doubt has D'Evils, 22 Two's, then Can i Live?

Liquid Swords starts off with Liquid Swords, Duel Of The Iron Mic, then Living In The World...

Marshall Mathers LP has Remember Me, I'm Back, them MM. (the only time Em dropped three greats in a row, too much silly bullshit)

Moment of Truth- Work, Royalty, Above The Clouds. (Gangstarr spits out 5 Star songs in row ALL THE TIME.

Lifestylez has got All Black, Danger Zone, and Street Struck.

My Own Worst Enemy- Just Call My Name, Voices, School'em

He Got Game ST- Resurrection, He Got Game, Unstoppable

Then there's obviously times where an MC dropped more than three in a row, and superior albums like Cuban Linx where Rae dropped 18 in a row. Hard To Earn is right there too.

those tracks do not appear in a row.

for me 'Ob4cl' is "Ice Water", "Glaciers Of Ice" and "Verbal Intercourse" which is my favorite passage on any album.

"I'm A African", "They Schools", "Hip-Hop" from Dead Prez debut.

too many to mention actually.

Can't name a single best because there's many classics that have a consistent 3 in a row quality, that flawless continuity is what makes an album classic to me.


I always loved the first 3 on EPMD's third album, starting out the album with the back and forth rhyming on E and P on I'm Mad, then Redman killing it on Hardcore with one of my fav verses of all time, then the classic posse cut Rampage with LL.

DJ Scratch (http://cratesofjr.blogspot.com/2009/10/dj-scratch-interview-on-dtp-radio-audio.html) murdered all three of those songs with some of the sickest scratch choruses I ever heard.

Those 3 songs are undeniable to me, til this day anytime they come on they boost my adrenaline.

Leak Bros, Water World: "G.O.D." "Gimmesumdeath" "Follow the Liters"
Non-Prophets, Hope: "New World Order" "Tolerance Level" "The Cure"
Immortal Technique, 3rd World: "Reverse Pimpology" "open Your Eyes" "Payback"
Ill Bill, What's Wrong With Bill: "Chasing the Dragon" "Alien Workshop" "Canarsie Artie's Brigade"
Celph Titled, Nineteen Ninety Now: "Eraserheads" "Fuckmaster Sex" "Swashbuckling"

there's more, but these came to my mind right now and haven't been mentioned.
