    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.

    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.

    What made you choose "Don't Sweat the Technique" over say..."Follow the Leader"?

    Also, do you think "Dah Shinin" is more essential than "Enta Da Stage"?

    I absolutely love Donuts, but is it essential for hiphop listeners? I don't know, never thought about it like that.
