FOR THE RECORD: (8)

hip hop.
it can be inspiring,
thought provoking,
story telling,
or all of the above.

these albums launched the careers of the legends.
some are not with us anymore.
others are still ruling,
and the rest have fallen off HEAVY.

i listened to all of these albums for the first time last week.
i’m sure i am super late.
i gotta say,

music was so much better in the 90s, wasn’t it?

either way,
this quick round is:

THE HIP HOP CLASSICS.

    1. ^lol

      ima need you to check out some of these albums to join the convo.
      you’re missing out on some gems of knowledge these wolves,
      and vixen,
      spit on some of these albums.
      beyond the typical topics,
      they were schoolin’ life.

  1. Tupac all day simply because we felt what he said. You can tell he put his soul into his work. Biggie is my nigga all day but therese something about Pac man

  2. Jay-z ain’t been the same since that first classic cd. Nd ms. Hill’s is in a class by itself. The chronic is legendary. 70’s, 80’s and 90’s music I the ish

  3. These are all classics but for me it’s Lauryn Hill, That album was and still is everything to me, she spoke to me like no other (well besides whitney).

  4. Biggie ALL DAY! I’m 24 and that’s all my dad listened to when I was growing up and it stuck with me. Those punchlines smh… In my Itunes he’s the only artist in my top 25 played. I swear I listen to Warning every morning. lls

  5. I’m not a huge fan of rap/hip-hop, though I agree those albums are classics & can still get pumped today. That being said, it’s Lauryn Hill hands down for me – then & now, she’s just the perfect blend. It’s a shame that island dack drove her crazy

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
