I started a thread for this in guest news and it went ignored. So like any good capitalist I will force this on you guys and make you want it...lol.

All jokes aside I highly rec this issue for any fan of the genre. It would be a nice collector item and something for keepsake. It very entertaining so far. I'm on like number 31 or so.

I quit reading hip hop mags around the same time i started posting on Amazon, but i do like these retrospective type of issues. I'll be at Wal-Mart later so i may pick it up.

I'll pick this joint up between now and Saturday. I also haven't read hip-hop mags on the regular since the Benzino-era of the Source, which made me cancel my subscription. Just like Terry said, I like the retro issues.

I agree to an extent but like Peterson said that trk was big in the southern region so i'm sure thats why they added it.

I'm highly pissed the fuck off that they did not put one DJ Quik song!!!!!!!!! I'll double check, maybe i overlooked it but I do not recall seeing one of his songs. And thats made the whole mag null & void in my eyes.

Also for Breed they picked Gotta Get Mine which is fine. But then they said its his biggest single. I would have been aiight with that statement until I noticed no mention of No Future In Yo Frontin. I think that was bigger than Gotta Get Mine. Maybe i'm wrong.

I skimmed through this the other day, but i wasn't about to pay $7.99 for it. There were some good choices and some really bad choices. All About The Benjamins at #2? WTF were they thinking?

Fuck Benij's at number 2, what about no fucking Quik song? That should be a crime.

I'm surprised Ruff Ryders Anthem didn't make Top 25...especially over a few tracks up there. I don't recall How Do You Want It being THAT big of a song when it was new. As big of a UGK fan as I am I don't see Pocket Full Of Stones being top 25.

Go look up the numbers and it will surprise you how big How Do You Want It was, especially sell wise.
