    I voted for Grandaddy Flow as it was the only one that was consistent and completely satisfying. Shabazz' album was dope but I had most of those tracks back in the late 90s, plus the mastering was terrible. Killah Priest's album had some brilliant tracks on it, but some dodgy beats and cheesy tracks, RZA's two albums were all over the place just like all of his solo shit, some tracks and some shit. Raekwon and Math's albums were decent but disappointing, and Deck's album was ok but considering it was Inspectah fucking Deck it was incredibly disappointing. Cappadonna's album had some decent tracks but was completely forgettable, and I didn't check for Remedy, never was a fan of dude aside from Never Again. 9th and Shabazz are the only ones I've listened to in the last 2 years and those are the only ones that were actually raw and didn't try to compromise and conform to the mainstream at all. 2002-2003 were probably the worst years for Wu artists in terms of the quality of the releases.

    Anyone that didn't pick Shabbaz in that list clearly doesn't own the album, it shits all over BOAP.

    75% (or more I don't have it in front of me) of those tracks are mad old. Crime Saga is from like 95, for God's sake. Still a good compilation, I can't consider it an album. But yes, it owns everything on that list except 9th Prince. If I hadn't heard most of that album years earlier I probably would've picked it.

    it does have better songs than any of the albums on this list ("Day to God is A 1,000 years", "The Birth", "See The Joy"), but you can't deny that the majority of this album is lyrically really dumbed down, even beyond the extent of either one of the Bobby Digital albums. 9th just has that grimy late night, rain soaked, wandering through the streets feeling paranoid type of feel to the majority of it.

    May be old to you but they where new to me so for that reasoning Shabbaz still shits on everyone else.

    Also I thought about Grandaddy flow but Shabbaz won because he has a better...erm....flow.

    I hear you, Shabazz is beyond sick, and like I said if the tracks were new to me I the time I bought the album I would probably rate it more highly. Being objective, the tracks are better, but I guess I felt burned that I finally got a Shabazz LP and it was a bunch of shit I heard on 12"s and the internet years beforehand. I'm gonna pull it out and give it a listen though, that track with Poetic is a classic.

    grandaddy flow with with WAR coming in second.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
