because they are essential and i wanted to make it a bit more diverse.

i do enjoy east coast albums more than the rest of the regions in the united states (probably it has to do because i'm from new york city so i'm accustomed to them more), but i need some diversity in my hop hop or else it would be stale, just like in every other genre of music.

Well then enlighten us with your list...

beautifulrock 03-01-2013 05:56 PM

Not including Wu.

The Chronic - Dr Dre
Ready to Die - Notorious BIG
Illmatic - Nas
Capital Punishment - Big Pun
Deltron 3030 - Self Titled
When life gives you lemons, you paint that shit gold - Atmosphere
Donuts - J Dilla
Grand-Illusion - STYX
Genesis - Self Titled
Darkside of the Moon - Pink Floyd

The last three are examples of percussion or harmony based backings that show glimpses into early production methods in Hip-Hop.
