A few notes on this list.

-This list would be completely different if I had heard all these albums at the same time. Most of them are listed for how they impacted me at the time I heard them.

-This list would be entirely different to my actual hip hop classics list.

-A Tribe Called Quest, Big Daddy Kane, De La Soul, EPMD, Eric B and Rakim, Kool G Rap, Pete Rock and C L Smooth, Public Enemy, Slick Rick and Killarmy all have great-to-phenomenal catalogues, but no single album from any of them had that notable an impact on me, aside from the PE album I mentioned, which I think was the second hip hop album I ever heard.

Didn't you give a proper listen to PE's It Take A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back and Yo!Bum Rush The Show
I consider em both classics, but nation of millions dont have a flaw by my opinion...

07-16-2007, 07:24 AM
Like I said dude, PE have an amazing catalogue. So too do several other groups and artists of whom I listed no albums. But none of their albums have had that huge an impact on me, aside from "Muse Sick..." being that it was the second hip hop album I ever heard. I also mentioned that my list of ACTUAL classic albums would differ greatly to my list of PERSONAL classics. For example, there is no fucking way in hell I would say "Muse Sick..." is a classic album, whereas I might well say a couple of PE's earlier albums are.

Don't get me wrong. I fucking love PE's early albums. Even some of the later ones. Same goes for all those other groups and artists I mentioned. Just no single one of their albums have ever been HUGELY important to me.

they are str8 grimey man, if u like old skool rugged production from DJ Muggs and DJ Lethal, than I suggest u pick them up right away.

I still bump both on the reg, especially when I'm training at the gym, or if I'm just in 'one of those moods'

It sounds similar to old skool Cypress Hill and Onyx-type shit.

My personal fav out of the 2 is 'Same as I ever Was' but others will say 'Fine Malt Lyrics' because it has more of their successful commercial hits like 'Jump Around' and 'Shamrocks & Shenanigans'.

But I def. suggest u pick up both if u like that type of stuff.

Nice one man. the main reason i was curious was coz of the whole Irish connection ting but ya im def gonna pick them up and give them a try if there that good. Old Cypress Hill is da shit and im a big fan of the first three Onyx albums. Thanks for that man.

Ya I didnt like RBG at all i was very dissapointed by it. Thats actually one of my least fav albums in my collection, i havent got round to gettin any of their other stuff, ive heard its good doh, def better than RBG.

Speakin on personal classics, i forgor to mention King Just - Mystics of the God. Its not exactly a classic, but i bought it years ago and loved it and still play it every now and then. I thought Just was a great rapper - great lyrics, flow, and especially delivery. He was very commanding on the mic and could switch his flow and voice from easy going to aggressive.

A very underrated album.

they are str8 grimey man, if u like old skool rugged production from DJ Muggs and DJ Lethal, than I suggest u pick them up right away.

I still bump both on the reg, especially when I'm training at the gym, or if I'm just in 'one of those moods'

It sounds similar to old skool Cypress Hill and Onyx-type shit.

My personal fav out of the 2 is 'Same as I ever Was' but others will say 'Fine Malt Lyrics' because it has more of their successful commercial hits like 'Jump Around' and 'Shamrocks & Shenanigans'.

But I def. suggest u pick up both if u like that type of stuff.



Word!!! I bump House Of Pain pretty often.. rugged production, phat!!!
I suggest everyone to check it out...

the W(from a production standpoint)
the infamous
revolutionary vol 1&2
silent weapons

i've listened to a lot of albums that people say are classic and i was nary impressed. ie. reasonable doubt, long hot summer, the chronic, the chronic 2001, stillmatic, the blueprint, step into the arena, hard to earn, doggystyle, firing squad, sun rises in the east. and many others.

not to say that all these were bad but they're nowhere near my personal classics.

i think when people constantly overhype albums as being the best stuff ever it ruins the listening experience.
