I don't wanna hear shit like "36 Chambers" or Dr Dre "The Chronic" because these albums are on most people's classic list. This is for those classics people forget to mention:

Da Bush Babees- "Gravity" released in 1996 (I just got it today & it is definitely a classic). Mos Def is heavily featured on the album. I first heard about them in the 90's but did not pay attention to them. Geez this album is a must have!

cunninlynguist - will rap for food. imo its better than apos, som du nevnte ghetto gnom hehe. alle tracksene henger bedre sammen og beatsene er sykere her

Henger bedre sammen på WRFF?? hmm, det klarer jeg ikke se.

Og jeg foretrekker daffe feelingen jeg får av APOS. WRFF er mer ujevnt, mens APOS er klassisk fra første til siste sang!

menmen, smak & behag.



Pacewon & Mr. Green - The Only Color That Matters Is Green

Really? I mean, I checked it out, I enjoyed it, but CLASSIC?! She Can Be So Cold is a classic track (mostly because of the hook! SO WHAT SOMEBODY LEFT YOU IN TO ROT, AN WANNA BE THE ONE WHO'S IIN CONTROL!? CLASSSS), but the album had some seriously fillers, and.. Well... It's actually pretty far from a classic.

Ah, yeah... Y'all have some really bugged criteria for classics.

MOBB DEEP - INFAMY ??? this is the album where they started to suck

sure the INFAMOUS, HELL ON EARTH, and MURDA MUZIC, even PRODIGY's HNIC could all be considered classics....but INFAMY had only a handful of good songs

Edgar Erebus
07-17-2008, 02:57 PM
Mobb Deep has only one certified and one debatable classic. Murda Muzik was uneven and overcommercialized. HNIC had Prodigy in early stages of his lyrical fall-off. And Infamy is freaking worst Mobb album except for Blood Money.

But I co-sign Guerillas in tha Mist. Last album where Ice Cube was truly great (after Death Certificate, which is also slept-on on this forum, and in my bugged opinion it's lyrically best hip-hop album ever). He started going in muddy commercial G-funk waters after.

hell on earth, the infamous, murda muzik are classics that people got mentioned in my opinion, but infamy is something like underrated album, tracks Learning, Get Away, Nothing Like Home are some of their best works and to me they were still good rapping not as before, but still good...

sarr
07-18-2008, 06:52 PM
infamy..looking back on it wasnt that bad..but should NEVER be mentioned as a classic

hell on earth, infamous, murda muzik and maybe even HNIC are all up there though


anyway my pick is Gods Son...very underated album..not as good as stillmatic, but its close

weird....I always thought MURDA MUZIC was a hard album, maybe not as dark as HELL ON EARTH, but hard nontheless....plus I always thought "Quiet Storm" to be one of PRODIGY's classic lyrical tracks, and I thought PRODIGY murdered the HNIC album lyrically, tracks like "keep it thoro" and the other alchemist bangers were all dope to me
