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.

That's 8, i've got about 20 more that could fit into spots 9 and 10. The albums above are not in any particular order.

If you feel obligated to list more, please do so. I just want this to be a reference point for users old and new.

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.

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.

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.
