We Are The Streets - hilarious, exciting, fun shit

MPR - not bad, pretty consistent, not something I come back to a lot though

Yeah it's pretty weak for 15 something years in the game. And the last album was released early 2000. Unless you count that D-Block - No Security album........i'm not sure if that's official or not........never heard it. At least they have features and group tracks on each others shit I suppose

You didn't like "Master of Ceremonies" Wayne? I only skip the pharrell track and one other. I thought it was pretty good. Styles has the best discog of the lox imo

Half - I agree with your take on "We Are The Streets". Breathe Easy, Fuck You and Recognize are my top 3. Prob my favorite Lox album, group or solo

Damn, I've only heard MPR & Kiss of Death.

They're both pretty great... I guess I should stop procrastinating on the rest of these albums, by the looks of things...

4.25

Lox – We Are The Streets

3.75 - 4

Styles – A Gangster & A Gentlemen
Jada – Kiss Tha Game Goodbye
Jada – Kiss Of Death
Styles – Super Gangster (Extraordinary Gentlemen)
Styles – Master Of Ceremonies

3-3.5

Lox – Money, Power & Respect……..not bad, I used to hate it
Sheek – Walk Witt Me………2 of my favourite D-Block tracks are on this: Mighty D-Block (2 Guns Up) and In/Out (S.P.)
Styles – Time Is Money…….a few lame songs on a short album hold this back
Sheek – After Taxes……good album, but I’ve never felt Sheek as much as the other two
Jada – The Last Kiss.......a lot of commercial attempts…..even for a Jadakiss album
Styles – The Green Ghost Project…….this is a good one
Sheek – Silverback Gorilla…..pretty average

I’ve also got Styles P – The Ghost Sessions and it’s dope and Jadakiss – I Love You (Mixtape) and it sucks. Jada’s “The Champ Is Here” mixtape is great. I like the first two Ruff Ryders comps as well.

Any more Styles P, Jadakiss listeners on here?

To this day I still can't believe I actually thought "Money, Power, & Respect" was better than "We Are The Streets", smh+facepalm.

I'm not a big fan of either LOX album. MPR is like a 3.25 to me, and WATS is probably a 3.75 or so.

Jada-
KTGG- 3.75-4
KOD- 4.5 or so, my favorite from the camp
Last Kiss- 3.5 maybe, only listened to it a couple of times

Styles-
G&G- 3.5-3.75
TIM- 4.5ish, second favorite
SGEG- can't rate it right now, been too long

Sheek-
WWM- 4 or so
AT- 4, maybe a bit higher. I get these first two mixed up these days. Regardless, Kiss Your Ass Goodbye>>>>>>>
SG- 4, probably a little lower. I liked it when I first heard it, but never really went back

That's all I can think of off the top of my head; I know I've heard more. Sorry for the abbreviations, iPhone typing is a pain

I'm putting mine all together in the order from fav to least fav:

Styles P- G & G
Jadakiss- Kiss Tha Game Goodbye
LOX- We Are The Streets
JadaKiss- Last Kiss
LOX- Money Power Respect
JadaKiss- Kiss of Death
Sheek Louch- Walk Witt Me
Styles- Time Is Money
Styles- Green Ghost Project
Sheek Louch- After Taxes
Styles- Master Of Ceremonies


The rest I either haven't heard or haven't heard in a long time because I thought they were weak back when I did hear them.

Thanks for the replies Wayne, Shaun, Tic706

Apart from We Are The Streets and Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, the rest I've only heard in the last year or two............anybody heard the D-Block album or any of the mixtapes? Styles and Jada in particular. Sheek also has a few other albums i'm interested in but i'm not sure if they are bootlegs or recycled shit not worth buying

Imo, none of Sheek's mixtapes were all that memorable. Styles had a few good ones.

The one who stands out in the group as far as mixtapes go would be Jada. Definitely check out his The Champ Is Here series.

The Lox are one of the dopest groups of all-time in terms of TALENT levels...lyrically these guys can outspit your favorite emcees easily and that goes for all three of them...but the problem with them is that all three of them are mixtape emcees and not album making emcees per se....Jada has the most successful history making albums, but album creation is not their forte.....their forte is lyrical dexterity...spitting until they collapse...


IN MY OPINION LYRICALLY The Lox>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Geto Boys by a whole damn bunch...but in terms of ALBUM CREATIVITY then it shifts to The Geto Boys>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>The Lox by a lot....

anyway my rankings on their stuff is as follows:
Money, Power, Respect-3.75 stars
We Are The Streets-5 stars easily (that shit just bangs and bangs....it's kinda relentless...... the production is very good as well)

Jadakiss:
Kiss The Game Goodbye-4 stars
Kiss Of Death-4.5 stars
The Last Kiss-4.25 stars


Styles P:
A Gangster And A Gentlemen-4.5 stars
Time Is Money-3.75 stars
Super Gangster-4 stars
MC-3.5 stars

Sheek:
Walk Witt Me-3.75 stars
After Taxes-4 stars
Silverback Gorilla-3 stars


so Sheek in my opinion has the weakest solo catalog and 'Kiss has the best solo catalog.....from the ones I've heard....

Just added for me. Styles P's new album is 4 stars, as noted in the review of the album on my blog.

Good points D.Powell........I agree with the types of MCs they are.

It's what makes them stand out lyrically from their commercial counterparts. Also the reason why they make classic tracks instead of classic albums. Sometimes they just don't mesh well with the beats or collabs geared more to the mainstream.

I think Jada is the best MC of the bunch but Styles has the best discog due to less of those awkward pop attempts they aren't really good at. They have two of the best voices in hip hop imo.

You really think Sheek is that good?

And I can't figure out where the Geto Boys come into this????
