PostSubject: Does PE have the best original album titles?   Wed 28 Nov 2012, 11:19 am

With their newest album called The Evil Empire of Everything coming out recently I was thinking if they come up with the best album titles in rap. I always usually get a kick out of what they name their albums. Is their any other artist(s) you can think of that have been consistent with dope original album titles?

1987: Yo! Bum Rush the Show
1988: It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
1990: Fear of a Black Planet
1991: Apocalypse 91... The Enemy Strikes Black
1994: Muse Sick-n-Hour Mess Age
1998: He Got Game
1999: There's a Poison Goin' On
2002: Revolverlution
2005: New Whirl Odor
2006: Rebirth of a Nation (with Paris)
2007: How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul?
2012: Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear on No Stamp [29]
2012: The Evil Empire of Everything [30]

Hmm, i might be inclined to give that title to Outkast, but I do like PE.

Outkast is a good pick. They are very creative with their album titles also. I mean Stankonia and ATLiens? Those were different.

Looking at the above link it reminded me that The Coup are creative also.

Kill My Landlord
Genocide & Juice
Steal This Album
Party Music
Pick a Bigger Weapon
Sorry to Bother You

PE album titles lately have been really tacky, ever since Fear of a Black Planet. Some really terrible titles.

Ya forgot PE's "Greatest Misses" I always liked that one and the cover that went with it. PE, Coup and Outkast all good picks


Ghostface Killah's titles always stood out to me or caught me off guard....

Ironman
Supreme Clientele
Bulletproof Wallets
The Pretty Toney Album
Fishscale
The Big Doe Rehab
Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City
Apollo Kids


Always liked EPMD's business theme they had going. I thought it was clever the way they worked it into what was going on in their career at the time

Strictly Business………classic debut
Unfinished Business………sophomore
Business As Usual…came out when they were on top of their game…third album in 3 years after 2 classics…they had the right to be arrogant
Business Never Personal………came out when their were rumours (truth) about them not getting along
Back In Business………comeback
Out Of Business………retirement

I don’t know where they could go after the last album “We Mean Business” (first in nearly ten years) but if they release a “We Seriously Mean Business Part 2” they would fuck it all up

I dont think they would sell shit now going off their last records numbers so they could call it "Failing Business" or "A Poor Business Decision"

PMD kept it going....

Shade Business..........Erick Sermon actually sent people to his house to rob him over money disputes or something

Business Is Business.......i don't think this means fucking anything....he just wanted to use the word business twice.....good album though

Yeah the EPMD series was unique. They deserve a nod. They did not use a simple numeric order they used the same word in different ways for each album.

Not to mention their unofficial albums like Beats & Places and PE's Greatest Misses ( one of my favs).

They put thought in their albums for sure

Greatest Misses must be like their "lost tapes" type album or something?

I know I luv and agree with PackFm's 2010 album "I Fucking Hate Rappers". That was/is such a good title to describe todays eveybody raps climate.

I think Ice Cube's Black-n-Whites had great titles.

I co-sign PE and Outkast.

Yup. I like "There's a Poison Goin' On", and "New Whirl Odor".

The album cover for "There's a Poison Goin' On" is classic.


I don't think the later day PE albums get enough shine.

PE would be number one for me in terms of hip-hop album titles no doubt about that



A Tribe Called Quest (had some very dope album titles)

People's Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm
The Low End Theory
Midnight Marauders
Beats, Rhymes And Life
The Love Movement


MF DOOM had some crazy titles as well....

Operation:Doomsday
Take Me To Your Leader
Vaudeville Villain
Madvillainy
Venomous Villain
Mm Food
The Mouse And The Mask
Born Like This


and of course De La Soul deserves mention as well:

3 Feet High and Rising
De La Soul is Dead
Buhloone Mindstate
Stakes Is High
Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump
AOI: Bionic
The Grind Date
First Serve

COMMON

Can I Borrow A Dollar?
Resurrection
One Day It'll All Make Sense
Like Water For Chocolate
Eletric Circus
Be
Finding Forever
Universal Mind Control
The Dreamer/The Believer

^^^ classy

And the opposite of classy:

AKINYELE

His albums made you feel like you were buying XXX porn.........it was the only time you didn't want to get the nice looking female serve you at the register..........i'd be looking over my shoulder trying to hide the cover from elderly woman and children

Vagina Diner
Put It In Your Mouth
Aktapuss

Still, it was better than putting Kool Keith's "Sex Style" on the counter. That made me feel like I was buying XXX gay porn
