    Default Albums that got you through college?

    So I was talking to a friend about Little Brother recently and he says that their debut, 'The Listening' is one of his favorite hip hop albums ever. I asked him to elaborate and he said that it was an album that he listened to a lot through college and he has A LOT of good memories to it. He said he studied with it, walked to classes with it, partied with it, and even slept with it. This brings up the question, what albums did you guys play a lot throughout your college days? There's gotta be some albums that are personal classics to you due to college nostalgia alone, am I right?

    I'm sure a lot of you have some interesting albums/stories to share...

    Wiz Khalifa - Kush & Orange Juice : You couldn't go to a party on campus without hearing this shit for a good 2 years.

    Can't think of anything else for this era of hip-hop haha.

    So do you have nostalgia attached to all these records? (and are we talking about Common's "Resurrection"?)

    When i was in college it was the first time i had money (part time job) so whatever money i had left over after alcohol and drugs went on getting all the 90s classics that i missed out on during my teens due to lack of funds so basically all the Wu, Mobb, PE, BCC etc albums.

    Nostalgia? I don't know, I just got 19. I mean the first hiphop tracks I listened to were DMX, The Fugees, 50 Cent, Jay-Z and a little bit of 2Pac.

    Yes, I am talking about Common's Resurrection. I still listen to it lots of times and the albums I mentioned in my previous post I still listen to them. Right now if I take the train to college I'll be listening to Dilla tapes or some Nujabes. More instrumentals.

    I'm a huge tribe fan but I never checked out Q and Phifes solo stuff? Is it any good?

    @FunkyDrummer: Resurrection is a damn good album. Is it you favorite effort by Common?

    Amplified gets a lot of hate on here for some reason, it's one of my favorite albums though. All beats by Dilla and Tip, great replay value, good one for the car too!
