What was way better than you expected? I just listened to 2 that would fit into this category:

Sapient "Letterhead"-Not mind-blowing but dope beats all the way through and Sapient does a good job here.

Poetic Hustlaz "Trials & Tribulations"-A great album for you Bone Thugs fans. Didn' t expect it to be that good but it's a 4.25 in my opinion.

Jozeemo "Cry Now L.A.F. Later" is the most recent. I bought it because it was $3. I was expecting wackness, but it's actually pretty dope. I can see this as one of my favorite Hall of Justus albums.

I consider that Poetic Hustlaz to be a Personal Classic.

The album I was probably the most surprised by was Grave Plott-The Plott Thickens.

I agree with Nero, that Poetic Hustlaz is a personal classic.

Knonam "Length of the Blade"

Shit looked like it would be wack as hell (especially with that cover...which I've grown to love because it speaks so true of the music) and after 2 years of repeat listening, it would honestly make my personal top 100. I stand by every praise I've ever given it. Fuck the haters.

The album that surprised me the most was Justice System-Rooftop Soundcheck. I took a gamble on it cause it was only 50 cents or so on amazon, and it was relatively popular among some heads on here. I wasn't expecting to be blown away, but it surpassed my expectations and then some.

Excellent pick. I have this one at 5 stars. Totally surprised me.

They do have a debut album (Sociology, I think), but it contains tracks that were used for Extended Play and was only released in Japan. Not sure if you can find it for less than $50 or if it's still in print, but it's out there.

I'm gonna say The Stimulus Package. I thought it'd only be about 4 stars just like Philly Freeway and Free At Last were, but HOT DAMN that album is a classic IMO. I've spun it 5 times since Tuesday, and go back to certain tracks. Free should stay on Rhymesayers, and stick to Jake One as his official producer.

Indeed, KJ. It's been in constant rotation for me. I've listened to The Product almost 40 times.

It will live up to it and them some. All the regulars who have not bought it already should be shot. Do you have it yet Kev? Powell? Slang? Linker? Esco? Dwight? Pounds? Halfy? Cise? If not, you need to get on it with the quickness. You've got at least 4 different listeners with different tastes giving it roughly 4.5 stars. It's worth the gamble for only $9.99 at Best Buy. Pick it up NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's enough for me though. Obviously the instros are bananas if you keep spinning them, right?

T i picked it up on Wednesday i went through fucking hell to get that album too lol

i went to Best Buy and i didnt see it anywhere so i had a guy look it up and it said they had one copy left so he spent like 15 mins tryin to find it then i finally noticed some random dude in the DVD section with it in his hands and he was buyin it

so then i went to the Borders next door, they didnt have it but i checked on their comp there and the Borders 10 mins away did so i drove there and used my 33% coupon and got it for like $11.63 so basically almost the same i woulda payed at Best buy

Its a crazy album, i guess it didnt surprise me too much since everyone i read/talked to were biggin it up, and i went through the hassle cuz i really wanted it right then lol, i cant explain it i just didnt wanna go home empty handed at that point

The beats and Freeway are dope and go together perfectly, it may be better than Philly Freeway not sure yet...The Product and One Thing stand out immediately

i dont think its classic cuz it wasnt mind blowing, some parts were though, im about to go to the gym and spin it there so maybe ill come back with a rating...its probably between 4.25-4.5 right now

The Stimulus Package is comparable to an average lookin girl that gives you great sex. You look at her and think "She's not a dime but she can get it" and then after you fuck her you're like "Hot damn, I'm puttin this bitch on speed dial!!"
