Great tune. But this layup line ish is lame as phuck.
The shorty phife dawg is my favourite MC.
Im taking the suggestion of hijacking these Layup Lines threads and I will start posting some real good hip hop. So today’s tune is: http://youtu.be/AGEnokldHVs
Sigh I miss these dudes. Midnight Marauders>>>>>ya favorite CD (except The Blueprint of course)
Oh my god! Oh, Oh My God! I like the remix more tho.
Life After Death>>>>>>Anything Jay-Z ever released
Nas is my favorite MC but it dont get no better than Blueprint. Im sorry.
1. The Blueprint
2. Black on Both Sides
3. Supreme Clientele
So excuse the 1st comment sayin MM was #2 lol
My top 5
1. Life After Death 1&2
2.Enter the Wu-Tang
3.Get Rich or Die Trying
4. The Documentary
Blueprint is like Reggie Miller with the greats outside looking in but very close.
2. Marshall Mathers lp
4. Me against the world
5. Ready to die
Love the Tribe, Low End Theory one of my favorite albums of all time
Low End Theory
Ready to Die
E 1999 Eternal
(No particular order)
also check out Ab-Soul’s Cd Control System
I Love Kenny G !
I see Supreme Clientele, The Documentary, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and Me Against The World on these Top 5 lists, but I can’t believe no one included Only Built 4 Cuban Linx or Makaveli. Either one of those two albums would DESTROY the albums I mentioned. It’s hard for me to compile a top 5 in order, so I just make a top 10 in order by the year of release. Only seems fair to me…
COME ON NOW Not one album ever release in hip hop has there been a gift and a curse bigger than Illmatic(it was written was a classic just like life after death but nobody talks about how commercial life after death is i i love both though), people wont let him breath everything is perfect. it is the prime example of being lyrical and not over doing it, almost every nas review at least mentions it , a college professor wrote a book on it there has been 3 mixtapes tributes to it love every album mentioned but nothing comes close @boweezy24 yes a morden day classic is section 80
Cosign O I forgot about Makaveli and OBFCL that album plus part 2 were classics hands down. Now it’s hard to find an artist putting out classics. I’ll ride with TDE straight spittas over there all 4 hold their own.
agree wit O, OB4CL and especially the Makaveli albums are classics (dont forget Me Against The World..OUTLAW!!! OUTLAW!!!)…but i’m always suprised people dont mention Goodie Mob’s SOUL FOOD…that ish was just the..dont know how 2 describe it..so soulful..i dont know any other Hip Hop LP which hits u soul like that..to me SOUL FOOD is my number one..if u havn’t done it yet, give it a good listen..PEACE
Any Wu album from that 1st run (36 Chambers, Liquid Swords, OB4CL, ODB’s 36, Ironman) can fit in a top 5 with no complaints. Wu from 93-97 was the single greatest thing to happen to hip hop. This is coming from somebody born in 91 lol
Just a few other classics that couldve fit in here: Stakes Is High, Makaveli, Black Star, AmeriKKKas Most, Reasonable Doubt, Late Registration, MBDTF, Little Brother’s Minstrel Show, Aquemini, Stankonia……damn I mite have to redo my list again. Sad hip hop ain’t producing classics like these anymore…
fruizm: about you posting “some real good hip hop”… if ATCQ doesn’t qualify as “real good hip hop”, well… I just hope you’re not serious.
The Chronic is the greatest album in the history of Hip Hop.
To this day.
T-Ray, GP23 with some solid a$$ lists! Gunna have to start listening to rap again. lol… Put the Kicker Solo 15″ in the Infiniti and get my wangsta on. K, i’ll keep my windows up and my hat straight, fine.
Philo FTW though…
@The Philosopher….youre CRAZY!
^Lol. I know… I know.
There are reasons that that album is the best rap album ever.
That album was the first of its kind.
1. Ready to Die
3. Low End Theory
4. All Eyez on Me
5. Everything else pales in comparison
