list could have been much better.

No WU TANG FOREVER???!!!!

2pac got royally fucked over.

Ready To Die is overated.

WHERE THE FUCK IS DRE's 2001??

No Slim Shady LP??

No 400 Degreez??

DMX was way to low on the list

this dude shows no love to the south

Outkast gettin no love

Again. No WU TANG FOREVER!!????

Beside no Forever mention, happy to see Wu tang gettin some love. I personally would have squeezed Bobby Digital In Stereo in there, but there are just as many people who dont like it then do like it.

I AM JUST SURPRISED AT HEAVY MENTAL, THEIR LATEST GREAT ALBUM (1998) AND SILENT WEAPONS FOR QUIET WARS (1997). ARE THEY SUGGESTING THAT @ THE END OF THE 90's ONLY WU-TANG AFFILIATES DROPPED CLASSICS?

^^^ well lets break down the Wu albums after Wu tang Forever, in the late 90's.

- Tical 2000
- Bobby Digital in Stereo
- Beneath the Surface
- Nigga Please
- Black Out!
- Uncontrolled Substance
- Golden Arms Redemption
- Immobilarity

The only Great/maybe Classic album I see out of that list would be Bobby Digital In Stereo, altho as I previously stated, alot of people, even Wu fans were hatin on that project.

Ghostface's "Supreme Clientele" would have obviously made the list, but that droped January 2000.

DELTRON 3030-''DELTRON 3030''



Im pretty sure Deltron is from 2000 or 2001. Either way, its a great album. Near-classic, if not straight up...
