The staid attitude to hip hop of it's fans is pretty annoying and pretty much indicates only listening to 90s boom bap with a few oddities like MF DOOM thrown in ie. my list.

The reason why I think Step In The Arena is their best is because Premier didn't have a formula for his beats, he was experimenting and the same with Guru bragging about how good he was compared to the competition. It was the perfect combination. SITA is slightly better than DO in my opinion. I think Hard To Earn is better than Moment Of Truth. They have a really amazing discography.

understood


did you hear the Jeru Albums though ?

If you are talking about the first 2 albums produced by Premier, yes. I listened to Jeru's stuff after that, but didn't really like it. His first 2 are classics. I personally think Wrath Of The Math is a little bit underrated, it's almost as good as Sun Rises In The East. Premier had some lowkey beats on there.

I don't think Jeru ever dropped a wack album. I was comparing it with his first 2 records. You are right about Heroz4hire, it's a good album. I really disliked the production on DD, but Jeru was on point. I liked the FMA influence on his latest album. I do believe nothing comes close to his first two records, those are by far his best records.

and if i could just go ahead and squeeze one more post in here, id like to say that it makes sense to see non hip hop albums here that were influential to hip hop, i wasn't taking issue with that.

this site frustrates me sometimes, why are we obsessed with ranking music and critiquing it rather than enjoying it?
Well keep in mind it's all for fun, but I wanted to incite discussion on albums we thought were good enough that they SHOULD be required listening for fans of hip hop.

And if we just wanted to enjoy the music, we wouldn't need a discussion forum would we?

Good call on picking "A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing" though! That album gets overlooked WAY too much. It's almost like they're the black sheep of the Native Tongues movement. (pun intended )

Good list mate! That Redman joint is so overlooked! It's dark, eerie, atmospheric and interesting. You can definitely tell he was on mad amounts of drugs while making it.

What makes you choose IWW over any other Nas album though?
