ok, we've done this a thousand times, but we always come back to it for some reason or another. My idea is to have everyone list their top 10 albums and MC's, and we will make this thread a sticky thread so we can always access and reference this easily.

Yeah my top 10 more so the last half of it interchanges at times but those ten are soild picks. So many dope ass albums its hard to narroe down ten.

Whats funny is this newer generation (10-25) will be able to narrow down a top 10 with fucking ease. If they can even come up with one..lol.

In all honesty Kev he's lost a lot of respect from me post-Crakaveli and while I still dig his cd's his quality control has been ridiculous. He put out 4 cd's this year (not countin the two disc iTunes only greatest hits with 5 new songs) and the two collab cd's he did murdered his solo stuff because he's spreading himself so thin and just putting out everything he records it seems like. Not to mention the beef with Eminem which hasn't brought out the best in him lyrically and seems like an attention grab. Hopefully this year he'll recover but again he's got like 5 albums scheduled for release. We'll see what happens though.

BUT From Start 2 Finish and Car Fulla Whiteboys will always be classic albums IMO.

Exactly, in the past year i have had Live And Let Die and The Untouchable ranked as my #10 album at some point in time.

Nor listens to much damn music and trys to have his hand in every sound like he's down with it but he really pulls himself to a confused mind state. How can someone who has been listening to hip hop for 20yrs not have 10 fav's? I smell bull shit.

I'm not all that familiar with Reks so I can't comment on him. But E-Dub as a solo artist?? I don't see it.

I feel the same way about Erick as I do about RZA. Great producer, and dope when rhymin with others, but average individually on the mic.

MC's (In Order)

1.Rakim (The R)-THE GOAT

2.KRS-One (Kris)-Lyrics, Battle Skills, Thought Process...do NOT fuck with him!

3.The Notorious BIG (Biggie Smalls)-a very short career marked by DOPENESS, the KING OF NYC, his life was cut short by an idiot..RIP!

4.Nas(Nasir Jones)-The poet, the prophet, skills abound

5.LL Cool J (James Todd)-battle skills, love poems, versatility reigns with him and he's been doing it for over 25 years

6.Big Daddy Kane (King Asiatic Nobody's Equal)-lyrics for years, an originator, just DOPE!

7.Jay-Z (Jigga, Hova)- the GOAT of emcees in 2010, Mr.Vain, the meaning of the word "swagger", lyrics for years!

8.Kool G Rap (the lisp), a spitter for the ages, battle skills, combined with the lisp..equals an emcee who will KILL you!

9.Ice Cube (West Coast)-the original boy in da hood, lyrics for years, Cube was no joke!

10.Chuck D (The VOICE)-his voice was scarier than your fathers....he's the Leader and many have followed...

Awe, the list changes from time to time. I like to keep the #10 spot as my "flava of the moment". And as for Reks, I have no problem putting him up there with the greats. Dude's got incredible flow and can switch up his style without skipping a beat. He kind of reminds me of a young Rakim.

Dude, read the whole thing...

And what the fuck does "hand in every sound like he's down" mean? Down with what? I play what I want. Simple as that.

You're trying way too hard. Just because you limit yourself doesn't mean I have to...

And if the light switch was on, you'd understand that anyone that has been listening as long as I have and isn't stuck in a time warp would have trouble trimming 25 years worth of dopeness down to 10 albums.

Again, read the whole thing...and try to stay on topic...

Reks in the top 10 in your top 10 is extremely surprising man doesnt he only have 1 album?

He has 4 albums:

Along Came the Chosen - 2001
Rekless - 2003
Grey Hairs - 2008
More Grey Hairs (digital release) - 2009

The first two LP's you won't hear too much about because they were released on small indi labels with vertually zero marketing and promotion and mainly self-distribution. Grey Hairs came out last year and was a damn near-perfect LP. Because of that, many people are calling Grey Hairs his first "Proper" release. More Grey Hairs was a digital release that showed up on i Tunes earlier this year and is basically a continuation of the previous LP. He recently hooked up with Statik Selektah and can be heard on Stat's "Spell My Name Right" LP on a few tracks. Dude's been around for over 10 years and earned a reputation as one of the Northeast's finest underground emcees. If he had been at the right place at the right time and received an offer from a Major, then he probably would be as popular as Nas or at least Talib. Dude's got solid talent and can hold his own with the rest of the heavyweights in the game. Trust me, I wouldn't just throw a name up there without knowing dude's potential and background, especially in this forum because there are a lot of tough critics up in here (that's not a bad thing). But if you're not familiar with him, definately check him out. You won't be disappointed.

Check out this video of "Say Goodnight", produced by Primo. It's dope as hell.

indeed, Chuck D does have the most commanding voice in the history of hip hop.

"Hey Kev, i saw that Akinyele the other day in a pawn shop. Never heard him, any good?"

Go get it it's worth money. If you don't like it sell it.

I got mine for like $4, I was laughing my ass off. Stores slanging music that don't pay attention I do my best to rape their good seldom knowns.

It's just hard to find music for cheap to sell for profit. People who sell music tend to pay better attention.

I try to keep track of rap lists that focus on expensive shit that were regional classics even if I won't bump it.

This just takes too long. I've made these lists like 100 time over the years, and well, I just don't care anymore. The list is always changing anyway. So I never really have a solid top 10 anything.

Well, i wanted to do this so this issue never comes up again. That's why i made it a sticky thread. Too often someone(Powell LOL), demands your top 10. This just makes it easier, and i also think it's benificial to other posters.

It's a good idea. I'll probably post my list when the smoke clears (not only in the room I'm currently in). I'll have more time one day. These 50-55 hour work weeks have got to let up at some point.

I feel ya on that. But you don't even necessarily have to post them in order. Just post them whenever you get the chance.

PostSubject: Re: Top 10 albums and MC's   Mon 04 Jan 2010, 8:42 pm

very rough order

MCs:
1. Ghostface Killah - To me he's not the same emcee he used to be today, but n his prime he is the epitome of an MC to me. He had slang, told stories, used words and phrases that took you weeks to figure out, and had the freshest most ludicrous lines ever and the wild voice to go along with it. From about 96-2002 i dont think anyone could touch Ghost -- no one ever did what he did nor will anyone be able to duplicate what he did in that time period.

2. Slick Rick - The Ruler, has probably the dopest voice in hip hop, i can basically listen to him over any beat, his voice comes in and anyone else on the track doesnt matter...Rick's presence and swagger on a song alone outshines everyone else

3. Kool G Rap - The lisp, rapid fire flow, crazy stories, and hardcore rhymes, its hard to touch G Rap from a technical standpoint

4. Nas - Nasty Nas in his prime was unfuckwittable. Nowadays he's not what he was but in the 90's and still today he'll drop lines most mc's cant touch

5. Raekwon - This is a new addition to my top 5. At one point i considered him my 4th or 5th favorite in Wu Tang, but he crafted my favorite album of all time and what he did the last 4 years solidified him in this position.

6. Eminem - Like some of the above, Eminem isnt what he used to be. Honestly today's Eminem i dont even really like, but in his prime he made some of my favorite songs of all time and has the talent to back this position.

7. Prodigy - P is the definition of raw. His voice, metaphors, and street lyrics was the definition of Queens and NY rap that spawned millions of copycats. There's a reason he is one of the most sampled voices ever.

8. 2Pac - raw emotion laid over tracks. Not many could keep it as real as Pac could.

9. Gza - the eldest member of the Wu and considered by many to be the best lyricist. Has a strong discog and there's not much to not to like about the man with the pyroclastic flow

10. MF Doom - Doom has 1 "not so good" album in his entire catalog. He absolutely dominated the early part of the 2000's and his voice is unmistakeable. If people took the time to actually listen to and decipher what Doom said they would realize he is more street than 90% of their favorite so-called "gangster rappers". Doom's production is some of the dopest and he never sold out. He is an underground and hip hop legend that will be recognized in 15 years more than people realize today.

11. Kool Keith - Straight raw and in many ways the creator of the "Stream of Conscience" type of rap. Keith's flow is unconventional and his voice is not for everyone, but he has at least 2 classics and adapted from the 80's to 90's almost flawlessly and expanded his fanbase with his multitude of personas.

12. Ras Kass - The Lyricist. Ras is simply one of the best lyricists of all time. If he never tried to appeal to the commercial audience he would be higher on everyone's lists. He can come at you politically, hit you with the social commentary, hit you with punchlines, and murder almost anyone on wax


13. Rakim - The God...so much influence on everyone, released 6 straight dope albums in a row and a 7th which is pretty good. Not many could do that and his lyrics will be remembered forever.

14. Scarface - Like Pac, he's one of the realeast MC's out there. He defined southern hip hop and his voice and presence is unmistakeable, Scarface comes on a track and others need to bow down

15. Andre 3000 - One half member of Outkast who has one of the best discogs in rap. Andre on "Aquemini" is one of the best mic performances on an album period. He'll flow fast, slow it doesnt matter and there's not much he cant do. If he would get back to rapping he would definitely still be the same rapper he used to be.

16. Tech N9ne - Raps the midwest to the fullest. One of the best flows in rap period, and has some of the realest lyrics out there. Gets personal without being emo, and will literally rap circles around people.

17. Canibus - ahhh Canibus. One of the best lyricists on earth but sometimes gets too out there with his lyrics. In his prime in thelate 90s-early 2000s he destroyed everyone on every guest appearance he made. I would be scared to be on the same track as him back then, and to me one of the best rappers of all time during that period.

18. Big L - considered by many to be a one-trick pony, but he's one of the best storytellers i've ever heard. He only has a limited amount of material but he never wasted a verse. L is one of the most ra and uncut rapprs ever, never censored himself and never afraid to say anything. There's a reason so many people continue to talk about him today.

T19. Brotha Lynch Hung - Siccest flow, one of the best to ever do it, period...has multiple classics, was the focal point of the Sacramento siccness scene, and will always have the shocking subject matter.

T19. Bizzy Bone - Bizzy is the standout member of Bone Thugs. Krayzie may be some people's favorites and Layzie may be the "glue" of the group, but its Bizzy who stands out on tracks. With his high pitched voice and one of the fastest flows in history, when he comes on the track you have to rewind it. I dont like all of his albums but when he's on hes simply one of the best. He changed his style to something fresh on every Bone album and still managed to standout as the best.

20. Sean Price - this is a personal pick, but Sean P simply kills every track. There's not many rappers who make me laugh out loud and he's one of them, for that quality alone he gets a boost. Nocturnal and his 2 solos are all excellent albums. He has also been one of the most consistent and sought after underground emcees of the last decade.
