I know there must be some hip hop heads out there on ATS. Personally I love all music, mainly rock, (besides country, sorry cant stand the stuff) but for some reason hip hop has always been something I enjoy. Its probably a generational thing because that's mostly what everyone my age listens to. I enjoy rap because of the community that surrounds it and the competitiveness artists have adopted compared to other genres of music. I love lyricism and flow mostly but I can get into some of the newer stuff coming out
. Anyways list a few albums and tell us why you enjoy them! P.S. this is my first real thread so I'm kind of experimenting with layouts and commands.




  1. Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx



    I consider this a masterpiece in the world of hip hop. The production is phenomenal. I just love the gritty sound of the Clan. This and 36 Chambers are in my top 5 favorite albums hands down. My favorite songs on this album are Criminology and Knucklheadz.

  2. Kendrick Lamar - Good Kid M.A.A.D City


    A lot of people don't like Kendrick. He is easily in my top 5. I enjoy most of his music, he's a very intelligent individual, he doesn't gang bang nor does he do drugs, all the while growing up in an environment that glorifies such things. He's the best lyricist that is hot in the game right now. His wordplay and his ability to tell a story is insane. The amount of metaphors and double entendres in this album are insane. The album is just very well done and like other artist's from Compton, it depicts every day life in Compton, Cali but it is a more modern depiction compared to N.W.A.

  3. Nas - Illmatic



Nas. Truly one of the greatest in the game which is why he is always included in peoples top 5 rappers. Again I love gritty east coast production. Nas has such a badass flow and his lyricism is impeccable. The dude was only 21 when this album was released. He also spit N.Y. State of Mind all in one go right after he wrote it. N.Y> State of Mind is one of my favorite hip hop songs without a doubt.

These aren't in any specific order, they are just albums I find my self listening to a lot. I can never grow tired of bumping them. I look forward to your favorite albums.

I remember the first time I heard the cover of George Michael's 'Faith' at a party with friends, before the album was released here in the UK. That track blew up the dancefloor at the rock clun I was djing at the time

I didn't grow up with a lot of rap, but I've taken a liking to a fair amount of it over the years
.

I'm not big on every song of his but when I like an MFDOOM song I LIKE IT A LOT.


Another artist with a few songs I'm pretty fond of, Louis Logic


EDIT: My apologies, spaced out on the fact your topic was asking about Albums in particular

There is too much to name only some of them.
But good choices! Only built for Cuban Lynx, one of the best WuTang productions.
And yes, Nas Illmatic, that were the good times!
Kendrick Lamar, sets one back to the good times.

I am listening to Deltron 3030 right now...

Tribe called quest: low end theory
Outkast: southernplayalistic, aquemini, stankonia
Goodie mob: soul food
Common: resurrection
Biggie: ready to die
Wu tang: 36 chambers
Rawkus Records: Soundbimbing II

These are albums i can listen to start to finish. Seminal works of art that should be in a museum as far as im concerned. Hip hop in its purist form. Lyricism and flawless production from track 1 till the end.
