    Get the Blackstar cd before his 2 solo's. Blackstar is a classic... so is Black on Both Sides, but Blackstar with Talib is pratically flawless.

    1. Blackstar (9.9/10)
    2. Black on Both Sides (9/10)
    3. The New Danger (7/10) -or- (4.5/10*)

    These are my opinions, most peeps would give New Danger below a 5.
    *If your looking for strictly hip-hop, New Danger is not for you. As a "Hip-Hop" album, I would also give New Danger about a 4.5/10. But its not a hip-hop album in full. Its about 50% rock, 30% singing, 30% rap. But if you like all those elements, it will be a little above average as an album as 7/10.

    Black on both sides is his best solo album.

    Pretty much what everybody else said. Although I liked Black On Both sides a bit more than Blackstar. Blasphemy, I know.

    And New Danger is actually very good. There are about 3-4 tracks that are worhtless, but the rest is superb. Especially The Begger, Panties, Modern Marvel...some of his best work.

    Black on both sides. The New Danger wasn't all that its pretty much the most disappointing sophmore showing i've ever been given by a rapper lol. 1st CD classic 2nd CD skippable.

    Everyone should check out "Modern Marvel" from the new danger. There are not many rappers that can write a 9 minute hip hop track and have it be interesting from start to finish.

    Amazing track. That's why I said nobody should sleep on New Danger. There are a few gems on there that are as good as anything Mos has done.
