What are some post 2000 albums you feel are modern day versions of older classics? Like they give you a feel of an older album or the subject matter is similar or whatever.

I'm finding this really hard to answer. All I can think of are direct and obvious sequels like OB4CL2.

I could see Below The Heavens being compared to something like Mecca & The Soul Brother, but i don't think BTH is a classic.

I don't see that comparison at all...

I don't think they sound alike. It's just the vibe and the mc/producer element is similar.

Below The Heavens=west coast Illmatic. Something about Blu's lyrics and personal subject matter over smooth but hard beats reminds me of Illmatic. Like how Nas seemed to be cramming so many dope lyrics into his bars that some words you did not catch until later.

Turf War Syndrome=Death Certificate. The passion, lyrics, and aggression of T KASH on this album reminds me of Cube on DC. Like DC, Turf War is str8 in yo face but not preachy or comes off as typical angry black man.

I am not saying these albums are as good as those classics but they remind me of them.

I'd say the West Coast Illmatic would be No One Can Do It Better. And Word...Life would be the East Coast DC.

I like Illmatic and DC better than the two aforementioned albums. But the DOC was on the verge of superstardom until the tragic accident. If it wasn't for that, DOC might have become as large as Cube or Pac and would likely be considered a GOAT candidate. That, and the fact that Nas was also a hot up and coming MC who eventually became a huge star and GOAT candidate are the reasons for the comparison.

As for Word...Life and DC, even though O.C. never became the star Cube is. The album represented the typical black man to the fullest and was also in your face with it's lyricism.

I've been saying recently Madvillainy is the 36 Chambers of the 2000's in terms of the raw, gritty sound.

I've heard people say Escape From Monsta Island is comparable to 36 Chambers.

Kev, BTH doesn't really remind me of Illmatic. I do think both mc's get personal though.

I think its the natural flow both emcee's showed. Something about those albums feel organic to a degree or just semi perfect for there time and space. And the beats seemed like they were born for those rhymes and subjects.

Solitary Confinement by K-Rino is Scarface's Mr. Scarface Is Back - they are both from Houston.

I see the Below the Heavens comparison but not Madvillainy or MIC for 36 Chambers. The other two don't give me that vibe.

Kev ive had that Turf War Syndrome sitting in my car for about 3 weeks and i keep forgettting to spin it since i bought it, i gotta get on that

as to this thread here are some comparisons

The Cold Vein - gives me a All We Got Iz Us vibe with the in your face reality raps delivered with a no holds barred approach and the gritty production. Also sort of gives me a mix between Tical mixed with Liquid Swords vibe

Escape From Monsta Island - i see the 36 Chambers comparison/vibe

Violent By Design - gives me the vibe of Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars but these did only come out 3 years apart...lol

Whats Wrong With Bill? - to me is sort of like the new age War Report

Spazmatic by Tame One is like the new age Whut? Thee Album

When I say Madvillainy, I mean productionwise. It has the same exact lo-fi sample rate and just very stripped down and gritty.

Eh, I started this same topic back in the Amazon days but used the word spirit. New albums that have the spirit of a classic album. Lets see if I remember my pics.

Mob Deep "Infamous"--Tommy Gunn-A penny 4 Your Thoughts

Wu-Tang 36 Chambers--Escape From Monsta Island

Those are the old ones I remember

Reakwon-OB4CL/ Mf Doom--Operation DoomsDay

The Roots-Do You Want More/ The Procussions 5 Sparrows

Boogie Monsters/ Underwater Abum--DarcMind-Symptons of a Greater Ill

Gangstar/Daily Operation--Binary Star/Masters Of The Universe
