    Default most underrated and slept-on albums of all-time

    PEACE 2 DA GODZ & EARTHS....

    Ok I wanted to make a thread about the "most underrated and slept-on albums of all-time".
    Here you can post a album that you think is a classic but is underated so we can debate on it.

    Ok well I been bumpin this albums for awhile, but alot of people took a bottle of niteqil to the head slept on this LP...


    Guests:Raekwon,Canibus,Rah Digga,X-1,Fredro Star,Redman,Eminem


    Blacktrash" isn't the average solo debut. It's a brilliant concept album that manages to possese both a great sense of humor and the occasional piece of social commentary while keeping it all in the confines of a story. In a time when rap had turned more towards soft club music and commercial party anthems, Sticky Fingaz managed to mold a classic album that returned to the storytelling days of Slick Rick. Unforunately, this may have been its commercial downfall. "Blacktrash" didn't get much promotion despite the fact that it was probably one of the few legitimately great albums, besides Nas' Stillmatic, to drop in 2001. Even if you weren't a fan of Onyx during their "Slam" days, if you consider yourself a hip-hop fan, this is an absolute must-own.

    classic concept album

    this album got promoted but the problem was it kept getting its release date pushed back, i remember seeing alot of ads for it but the release date kept changing for like a year then when it finally came out not everyone was aware of it

    I would say AZ - Doe or Die. People rarely mention it when speaking of classics, I consider it top 10, Illmatic pt. 2.

    Funcrusher Plus- Company Flow

    The Listening- Little Brother

    The Grind Date- De La Soul(not classic but damn near it)

    Cypress Hill "Temples Of Boom" - Great vintage dark Muggs beats, B real is tight too.
    Daz Dillinger "R.A.W" - Produced entirely by Daz, Recorded on Death Row, released independantly.
    Pete Rock & CL Smooth "The Main Ingredient" - i never hear no1 talk about it no more
    Obie Trice - Cheers, i first got this album and thought it was average and never really listened to it. a few months later i picked it up, the album is great! Beats are great and Obie dont get borin, keeps it catchy. Check the song "Never Forget Ya" for a sample. Eminem's beats seemed to fit him
    Kurupt - Tha Streetz Iz A Mutha, a raw westcoast sound, a distinctive sound
    Xzibit - Man Vs Machine - i thought this album was great, high-impact beats with Xzibit rippin them. Cant believe it was received so poorly
    DJ Quik - Rhythm-A-Lism - DEFINATE 5 MIC ALBUM!! Start to finish, a musical triump with live instrumentation, many different sounds yet the album flows perfectly. EVERYONE should own this, its simply bigger than hip hop.

    These albums i feel were tight, at least 4.5 mics each, just wish they got the credit that was due. If they did, i didnt notice and no1 reall ymentions them.
