Come on man, that list could have been a LOT worse! It's for a book being sold to the mainstream, and more importantly people who enjoy music from all genres, most of them may not even like hip hop.

Only ones I could argue with at all if I was being picky would be Missy's second one on that list, 'Under Construction', I really didn't enjoy that very much at all, but Supa Dupa Fly definetly deserves to be there, that was when Timbaland's production felt so unique and fresh. Then I think they've got the Outkast albums all wrong, but they've clearly wanted to include Outkast, and since it's clearly not looking for lyrical talent or the real gritty hip hop, it's included Outkast's two more commerically succesful albums, instead of what I see as two classic albums in Aquemini and ATLiens, sorry Southernplaycadillacmusik fans, I just wasn't a fan. Then the final issue I had was LL Cool J, they put in Mama Said Knock You Out, when if I was going to include anything from LL, it would be radio, because you know I can't live without my radio.9:|6

The ones they have decided to include from the hip hop genre are cool with me. They've represented most eras from hip hop, couple of G-Funk/West coast albums, plenty of Wu-Tang, the old school is represented quite well, and they've got modern mainstream classics in Get Rich Or Die Tryin and The College Dropout.

Gangstarr? I prefer just listening to Full Clip, for me none of the albums are amazing throughout, probably because of Guru only being above average, and not exceptional.

Once I checked this thread out, I went looking for the list online, and found it. TLC - CrazySexyCool, D'Angelo - Brown Sugar, Cee-Lo - Soul Machine and wait for it.... Common - Like Water For Chocolate are in it.:clap:

i wouldnt say guru is above average the least u can say is good just becuz he's not packed with metaphors dont mean nothin the way he uses his words are unique yeah he wasnt that complex with his words in his earlier days but it was still dope and had alot of flavor to it

and he's def grown as a lyricist check out moment of truth he does really really well with his lyrics on that 1 and if u cant listen to that album all the way through u got problems

not a bad list
but seriously im a big outkast fan and i still think 'speakerboxxx/love below'
is like the most overated joint ever
big bois joint was pretty standard, with mostly bangers on it
andres was ok there were 3 or 4 reallly amazing songs on it, but there was other songs on it truly awful ones, sum of the worst ive herd in my life
really dont deserve all the credit it gets

You really think some of MF Doom, Aesop Rock or Sage Francis's work should be included on a list of must-hear albums which includes people like Frank Sinatra, Elvis and The Beatles?:lmao:

No hate, just wondering.

i think that's an excellent list for a mainstream book. four wu-tang albums, KOOL KEITH, public enemy, definitely some classic and/or underground shit mentioned.

KRS is not on the list, EPMD, Mobb Deep - The Infamous, Eric B. and Rakim, there are definitely same misses but in general it could be a lot worst, i'm happy that i saw in the list GangStarr, Nas, ATCQ, Wu-Tang, Common... :clap:

my bother has that book, its great bog reading.
the reviews are pretty decent also.
i was looking at the mojo magazine top 100 list of their time.
don't know if you know the magazine, its mostly old rock and americana which they cover but the wu tangs enter the 36 chambers was the only hip hop album in the top 100. :clap:

04-27-2006, 05:41 PM
not that good of a list in my opinion...
outkast-atliens
outkast-aquemini
goodie mob-soul food
eric b & rakim-paid in full
eric b & rakim-follow the leader
bdp-criminal minded
bdp-by all means necessary
epmd-strictly business
slick rick-the great adventures of slick rick
brand nubian-one for all
nas-it was written
nas-stillmatic
nas-lost tapes
jeu the damaja-the sun rises in the east
heltah skeltah-nocturnal
ogc-da storm
mf doom-operation doomsday
ghostface killah-supreme clientele
....im sure i could think of more if i wanted to

i didnt really expect to see alot of them that i think deserve to be on a list like that but they did leave paid in full atliens and criminal minded off and that alone makes the list shit to me

04-27-2006, 07:26 PM
I read through that at Border's, they got some good ones, definitely missing a lot. Maybe a little Black Star, Black Moon, Smif-N-Wessun, Heltah Skeltah, etc. Thank God they got the Pharcyde on there.

What Albums do you think they have forgotten?[/QUOTE

First: why there're Stankonia & Speakershit?? Wtf?? There should be Southernplayalistic & ATLiens on this list instead:mmmyah:
Second: Two Eminem's LP's is two much, they should include only Slim Shady LP.
Third: They fucked up The Roots discography! Where the fuck is Illadelph Halflife?
Fourth: At least one Redman's album should made the list (Muddy Waters IMO)
Fifth: Missy Elliott - Under Construction & 50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Tryin?? You must be kidding...
Sixth: There's Blueprint and not Reasonable Doubt? That's unbelieveble...
Seventh: There should be Ironman & Heavy Mental IMO

The only giant glare is no Rakim at all. The guy who is widely considered the god of rap, how can Paid in Full or Follow the Leader not make it.

07-12-2006, 01:44 PM
You really shouldn;t bitch about Ironman or Foreve rnot being on the list. The Wu has the most entrys in the list. Then followed by by Pac or PE or some shit. I like that the Wu isn't slept on in ALL the branches of the music business.

If thats a list of hip-hop albums for people that dont follow hiphop, thats pretty good.

For people that actually listen to hip-hop albums, it would obviously be a lot different.

You ain't got love for Saian Supa Crew i think they are one of the best around same goes for Rohff. Those two are forgotten when talking about Frens MC's and thats a shame especially for the ones missing out on SSC.
