Name some artists you would've liked to have seen drop a solo album but never had the chance to. To get things started, one artist I would pick is definitely Treach from Naughty By Nature. A solo album from him, circa 1996 to say 1999 (or 2000) would've been something to behold.

NBN albums were essentially Treach albums though, because there were a lot of tracks that Vinnie didn't rhyme on, and when he did rhyme he usually only got one verse per song.

A Posdnous solo album would be interesting, especially if he re-united with Prince Paul on the boards. I always felt that Pos was extremely underrated. He's dope as fuck on the mic!

Good call on Pos, KJ/ Throw him on some dope production with 5-6 guests, and the album would be fire

I'd like to see someone out of the Subterraneous camp that isn't named OneBeLo, Semin Silla, or Decompoze drop an album

I would've liked to have seen a Killa Sin solo album. Production by RZA, 4th Disciple, True Master, and Mathematics, and a few, but not a lot of, guest appearances from the Wu and Killarmy.

Andre 3000 is the obvious pick. Imo he needs a rap solo ablum to solidify his place among the greats. Its one of the reasons I try not to include him in my fav solo rappers. He still needs to prove something to me.

Treach would be dope even though like KJ said most NBN albums were like his solo's. Sometimes Vinnie really brings down the energy of a trk, so a whole album with mostly only Treach would be welcomed. Same with Black Thought most Roots albums are his solo's.

I always wondered how a Kadafi of the Outlawz solo album would have sounded like. RIP.

I agree, and I'm glad that you and so many others co-signed. Dove and Mase would make appearances of course, but Pos doing a solo joint would be really hot! I don't want De La Soul to break up for it to happen, but I would definitely welcome a Pos solo album.

I was gonna say Black Thought, but The Tipping Point for all intents and purposes qualifies as a BT solo. I'd certainly welcome another one though.

Co-Sign, sadly he passed away before it could happen but I would have liked to have heard it.

It would be interesting to see Ant put together a producer album, but get out of his comfort zone with the emcee lineup. He's made some real ill contributions to underground hip-hop. I'd like to see him get back to that sound from Can't Imagine, God Loves Ugly, and Seven's Travels.

Oh yeah, Andre 3000 is another top notch pick.

Red Cafe is another pick for me also.

Of course I have to big up Parker for the Ant pick, I think he could do something similar to Blockhead as far as a dope, unique, beat tape...but I also gotta give props to KJ for that Pos pick and the Giggity Guest for the midwest picks, especially AK and Wish Bone.

Just cause I was just reading about them, I was thinking Prophet that used to be on Nappy Roots would be good but now I wanna say he may have one. I gotta check it out.

And even though he's done one already, I wanna hear some new shit from Rock of HS...he's been killin the features lately.

Um...nevermind. Just found some Prophet songs on myspace...he lost that signature flow and is doing very typical shit. It's not terrible but it's super average. Like extra medium. And that shit is not cool. He does have one dope beat from Mannie Fresh tho.

JP! I SEE YOU! Buk has been working on a mixtape and an album for a few years now, I'll be sure to let you know if it drops this year. PsydeFX just dropped a solo but I can't find it to d/l anywhere and I don't trust him to just drop a dope solo.

There's a Kadafi solo mix that used to float around the net, Kev, it wasn't very good but I'll see if I can find it for you. It sounded a lot like Fatale's solo shit, so if you liked that you might like it. Very short like MAYBE ten tracks...

I think I remember hearing about that mixtape. I think I left it alone because around that time people were dropping anything Deathrow, Pac, or Snoop related.

If u find it let me know.

Cosign on the Kiss & Styles album. I would love to see it. Styles hinted in a recent interview that they have something planned.
