Faith2005 do you use aim? If so PM me your aim name. Jeru the Damaja had the classic song "Come Clean," however my favorite song by him is "My Mind Sprays."

No order

1) Nas-Illmatic
2) Biggie-Ready to Die
3) Biggie-Life After Death
4) Jay Z-Blue Print
5) Outkast-Aquemeni
6) Dre-Chronic
7) De la Soul-3 Feet High and Rising
8) WU Tang-Enter the 36 chambers
9) Fugees-The score
10)Lauryn Hill-The Miseducation..

Weird mix up...but this is based on albums that are unskippable..i.e you can put them in your box and don't have to worry about having to skip weak songs.

Plus I gotta throw Jay-Z the Black Album in there somewhere.   HOV took it to another level with that. The whole album is an exclamation point.


Lauryn is another one who needs to come back and knock out another one.  I would also throw her in my top 10 somewhere.

Yeah, the Black album was tight, though I ended up enjoying the Blueprint a little more..maybe because of the "dig in the crates" old feel beats.  Lauryn Hill is working on an album now, and the fugees are supposed to put a joint out together again after that..we'll see.

I'm down with alot of what's been said as far as album rankings.  Maybe this is just my Sactown bias coming through, but I think Blazing Arrow by Blackalicious is one of the best albums from start to finish.  To me it's got the complete feeling of 36 chambers even though it's a way different style.  Check it out if you haven't.
