    Without Enta Da Stage there would be no Dah Shinin.

    ^True true.

    I've never heard their second joint, "War Zone", is it worth checking out?

    I think it's very good. It's obviously not as good as Enta Da Stage, but it's definitely worth checking out.


    Don't expect the rest of the album to be on this level, this is one of the best tracks on there. I don't like the chorus here.

    Nice list bro. Interesting Gang Starr choice, I would've figured their third or fourth albums to be the normal pick.

    i dont agree with this thread title. why should i own anything you tell me to buy? and i own most of these albums, i'm just saying.

    what this thread promotes seems like the same mentality that idiots with a level of status and have a bookcase full of books they never read have.

    this site frustrates me sometimes, why are we obsessed with ranking music and critiquing it rather than enjoying it?

    not exclusively HipHop albums

    just albums

    the OP might have had Just Hip Hop albums in mind but didn't write out the thread title like that -

    i suggest Hip Hop heads get acquainted with Hip Hops Parents

    in HipHop, competition is almost a life or death situation for very good reasons
