    Fight The Power - Public Enemy
    It was released as a single only, so it is the only song on the record

    Without a doubt it's A Tribe Called Quest Midnight Marauders-By far the best album I've probably ever heard, maybe even regardless of genre. I still listen to it all the time, and there isn't one song I skip. Think its from 94 so that says a lot.


    2nd is The Pharcyde Bizarre Ride 2 The Pharcyde


    And 3rd is a toss up between any Del the Funky Homosapien, Casual, Souls of Mischief (Hieroglyphics Crew) album






    Honorable mention:
    Redman Dare is a Darkside
    The Roots Do you Want More
    De La Soul Buhloone Mind State
    Public Enemy Fear of a Black Planet
    Jurassic 5 Quality Control
    Jeru the Damaja The Sun Rises in The East
    Wu Tang
    Old Dirty
    Gza
    Rza/Bobby Digital

    I used to have Talib Kweli's first album as my 2nd fav but his "views" get in the way of me enjoying anything he has or will ever put out again.

    I probably have 50 others. 90's Hip Hop was awesome. The rap I listened to was more considered "white boy rap" or hippy weed-head or skateboarding rap, but it was still rap. It wasn't super ghetto.

    That album went to number one on Billbaord 200, with no radio play, and no MTV play.

    Yep, watched all the episodes a few times. I was initially drawn into it by the Jimmy Iovine parts, his career path is fascinating and he's done some great work with so many bands. Then they weave in the Dre parts and it's a great story.

    The amount of vision and determination some people have is utterly amazing.

    and to the OP, I'd probably have to say the Marshall Mathers LP. Not a huge rap fan, but like the typical Eminem, NWA, Beastie, Snoop stuff.

    But not too short for you to enter a thread and spew completely off topic remarks.

    I don't like it either. But stop your trolling. Let them have their thing, even though It ain't my thing nor your thing.

    For the old schoolers- anyone remember Two Live Crew? or LL Cool J "Goin back to Cali"?

    If you had the right setup in your car, the bass on some of those old rap songs would crack your windshield.

    I remember as a kid telling jokes about that being some kind of mating call.
    I was completely unaware how totally fucking racist those jokes were.
    I just thought they were funny.

    Here's a few hiphop albums of a different nature. More thought-provoking lyrically and sonically and none of the money/blingy/jiggy/playa nonsense. If you don't like rap but are open to other types of electronic music, you might even find you dig some of this.

    Depends on your definition of "rap"?
