Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

I liked Aquemini (Skew It On The Bar-B >>>) but I love that vibe of ATLiens. Every time I listen to that album, my top-5 MCs of all-time lists changes to make space for 3 stacks.

And listen to CC 1.5 quickly. Like....right now. In my book, it's a modern day classic.

There's Illmatic, Ready to Die, Enter the Wu-Tang.. and then there's everything else. That's like the holy trinity of rap music. Isn't it?

A lot of people would probably put The Chronic up there, as well.

Chronic is up there. You don't know what you're talking about if you believe otherwise.

There's also a lot of other seminal albums. That's a disappointingly VH1 take on Hip Hop ATLien. lol

You don't even like Hip Hop that much...this much I conclude from some of our conversations.

Only in the sense that it isn't the only genre of music that I like.

Been listening to alot of The Roots lately while driving on the road.... They were tight **** back in the day(Organix, Illadelph Half, Things Fall Apart), we need more people rhymin like them these days. Black Thought was/is a beast.

Re: Bball's top 50 hip-hop albums of all-time

The Roots are dope. The tipping point, things fall apart, illadelph halflife, and game theory are my favorite albums of theirs. I may get some more of them in the updated list. Oh and everyone else can fill in their top whatever list in here. I plan to rank mine sometime soon probably after the NCAA tournament.

ATLiens of course belongs, but I don't think that Little Brother has a place on an all-time list. They are one of the better hip-hop acts to emerge from the 00's, and they have some really good songs, but top 50 all-time? I just can't agree.

What about Paul's Boutique? I didn't see any Beastie Boys on the OP's list.

Pauls Boutique is on the list ATL. I will be making some revisions when I get around to actually ranking the 50 in order.
