Anyways folks, sorry to be dickhead but I'm a put this thread on "an extended vacation" as JRA would put it. But this thread should be done by the summer hopefully. Probably not, I donno. But it will be finished some day.

Damn, I was relying on this list to know what Hip-Hop albums to get.

25: DOOM

Group: MOOD
Members: Hi Tech, Jahson, Main Flow & Dante
Producer:Hi Tech
Recorded: 1995-1996
Album: DOOM

MOOD is an underground Hip Hop collective that consists of 4 members, DJ Hi Teck, Dante, Main Flow and jahson. It also features a very young and very unknown "talib kweli" at the time, much before he went on to make underground and mainstream success with Black starr(with founding member Mos Deff) and his solo career in early 2000s and so on. But lets rewind back to the mid 90s shall we. Filled with sinister rich epic hip hop loops, backed up with epic lyrics and songs that deal with street crime to philosophical apocalyptic doom, with lyrics that range from hallucinations of satan to epic drug cartel stories and drug deals gone hay wire, The album "DOOM" is exactly how this group makes you feel in certain tracks, that feeling of doom..but in a very laid back "underground" sound that only a group like "Mood can bring you...to set the mood.

Esoteric Manuscript


Industry Lies

Sacred Pt 1 *Just go to the 3:40 mark. This song is not that great but at the three minute and 40 second mark it switches sounds/beats/atmosphere everything, and hi tech comes in to drop a quick verse, the only song he is in and this beat is just so beautiful and sinister and his raps are just deep, dark and hits you hard. "All these teachers and preachers, they down with the police in the night time they shooting up dope and drinking white wines, to give the pipes lines blame it on the crack fiends, and Black teens getting "As'" from the vaccines" . Too bad the the last part of the song is so goddamn short! That fucking beat is beautiful!!!

24. The Predator

Artist: Ice Cube
Recorded: 1991-1992
Released: 1992
Album: The Predator

Not guilty the filthy devils tried ta kill me
When the news get to the hood then niggas will be
hotter than cayenne pepper, cuss, bust
Kickin up dust is a must
I can't trust a cracker in a blue uniform
Stick a nigga like a unicorn
Vaugn, wicked, Lawrence Powell, foul
Cut his fuckin throat and I smile
Go to Simi Valley and surely
somebody knows the address of the jury
Pay a little visit, "Who is it?" (Who is Ice Cube?)
"Can I talk to the grand wizard?" then boom
Make him eat the barrel, modern day feral
Now he's zipped up like leather tuscadero
Pretty soon we'll catch Sergeant Coon
Shoot him in the face, run up in him witta broom
Stick prick, devils ain't shit
Introduce his ass to the AK40 dick
Two dazed niggas layin in the cut
To get some respect we had to tear this muthafucka up

This is not only Ice cubes Greatest work But on this record we see an Angry, political, Fight the power, raise your fist in the air, "fuck the system and fuck the police too" ice cube. The Ice cube that a lot of people such as myself grew to love in the early 90s. Forget the "are we there yet" PG-Disney filled ice cube. That is the Ice Cube that we see today...

today we see a multi million billion dollar making main stream sellout who stars in shitty films and makes lame poppy mainstream friendly music. That my friends is the ice cube that we see today, sadly. That's what happens when you make a shit ton of money, the success and fame gets to you. What's even worst is that ice Cub has a giant vulture of fans that only listen to his more pop-oriented mainstream commercial crap. He has created enough music where he actually has two kinds of fan base. The ones that wanna hear his shit from 1987-1994(like myself)...and the ones that want to hear his music from 1997 and so on. It's a damn shame really. I went to see Ice cube with my ex GF back in 2008 at a rap fest. It really showed where he stands as far as his fans are concerned. His set was filled with horrific commercialized radio bullshit, I didn't know any of the songs that he was playing sadly.. Nothing from his 1987-94' discog was played other than "today was a good day" which is like his MOST WELL KNOWN SONG EVER....I felt jipped to say the least because we mainly went to see ice cube and ice cube only(well, she went to for the other shitty acts like Chris Brown and lil wayne but oh god we are not going to go into that)... Out of the 20 songs that he played, he only played ONE OLD SCHOOL song...but anyways enough flash back talking...

Lets rewind back to the early 90s for a second. Back in the 90s Ice cube really tried to make a name for him self and he truly did, releasing 3 classic Solo Records that will go down as some of Hip Hops most angriest politicly infused rap albums to ever hit the streets since, shit well you tell me nigga.

The Predator truly showcases Ice Cube at his most raw, most angriest, Most cynical, and put simply....HE IS JUST DOWN RIGHT PISSED. And I don't mean just pissed


That why I love this record so much. Not just because of the dynamic Old school jazzy hip hop beats and beautifully laced rugged instrumentals...But its also the angry yellings and words coming out of Cubes Foul mouth that gives those beats the "extra" strength and adds that raw dirtiness that makes this album stand out -oh so very much. This is...to make it simple

Ice Cubes Most pissed off record ever.

Seriously, after this album i feel Like cube declined lyrically and started falling for the masses(of the mainstream of course) which explains why he changed his style for the worst after the mid 90s were finished and over with. It's a really a damn shame because This album is filled with one Pissed off song after another. You can just tell this man is fucking pissed the fuck off with the system and the mis treatings of the black youths/black nation during the early 90s. I love that so much, it's like cube wants everyone to know how fucking mad he is at the world with the way the world has been treating blacks and black society, especially since this was recorded during the infamous and very important "Rodney king/Police Beatings" which then escalated into the war-zone driven 1992 Los angeles Riots which took place in April 1992. For those that don't know, i will make a quick run down.. Rodney king was some black dude who got pulled over and beatin to a bloody pulp by 3 police officers. He did absolutely nothing wrong, they just pulled the poor guy over for nothing and beat him tell he had no image on his face left.... the police officers ended up getting the "non guilty" verdict from the judge, which led to the infamous "LA RIOTS" which can be heard and talked about in songs like "we had to tear this mother fucker up". Easily one of Cubes Greatest songs and probably my favorite song that he has ever written and recorded. FUCK THE POLICE

*It should also be noted that this album was recorded and released during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots that took place on April 29th 1992 which escalated over the unjustified beating of a black male by 3-4 police officers. I'm giving a much more retarded shortened version of this whole ordeal but For those interested, here is a link if you are interested in reading up about this important event
1992 LA RIOTS/Rodney King Beating

I just gotta say it again, sorry guys, i know i been repeating my self but goddamn..one of the main reasons I love this album so much is because of Ice Cubes Voice, and his voice ALONE. You can just hear it in his voice in songs like "We had to tear this mother fucker up" and "Who Got the Camera" just how fucking pissed off he is. i THINK i have made myself pretty clear that he is pissed the fuck off on this record. The kind of "pissed off" where you just wanna grab the head of a rooster and tear that roosters fucking head off and spew it on the floor while you stomp its body on the curb and stomp a mud hole in it's ass. THAT KIND OF "PISSED OFF"




Just hearing this record makes wanna BREAK STUFF(LOL limp bizket)

Cube Is pissed and he is pissed off for a good reason and he definitely gets all of his frustration and anger OUT off this classic Record. A Record I recommend any Metalsetlist companion to check out. Cypress Hills DJ Muggs also joins in on the ONES and TWOZ to drop some magnificent epic Hip Hop Instrumentals for Cube to bark out his problems of the evils that lurk on earths worldly ways. Another thing I love about this album is not only do we have the politicly charged "fuck the system, THE GOVERNMENT IS GENOCIDE" songs, but we also have some of Cubes most laid back, most relaxing songs to grace the sound of hip hop, especially during early 1992. I'm 100% certain that a lot of people on this forum has heard the song "TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY" Which was the single of this album and went onto be a huge radio hit, they still play it on the radio to this day. Classic, just classic.

Anyways thats the rant of the day. Ice Cubes first two records are undeniable classics, but on this one he just took it to another level and elevated his style with elevated beats, raps and leaves you with this "FUCK THE SYSTEM" attitude that you just can't help but "feel" for what he's saying. He is just so angry and this is a side of ice cube that we will never ever see again, but goddamn i'm glad it can be heard on this album....THE PREDATOR....Ice Cubes Magnum Opus.

23. Legal Drug Money

Group: Lost Boyz
Members: Mr. Cheeks. Freaky Tigh, Pretty Lui, DJ spigg nice
Recorded: 1994-1995
Released 1995
Album title: Legal Drug money

"the rough times will remain in my brain
I make it hard to maintain, tearing clowns out the frame
I been away for mad peoples thought I fell
But I just came back from my visit in hell
I seen the demon and we chatted,
about this and that And other foul things that never mattered
He said it's time to get ya props But still watch ya back from jealous fellas and them crooked type cops
So yo I did what he got it, police never reported The day they found my little man Shawn snorted
Some kids slit his throat for a little coke But we caught the suspect, 911 is a joke
But listen that's how it goes on the street, man You can't be beat, us real fellas gotta eat With selling drugs, busting shots, how local thugs Money we divided, now they works under works from the ghetto"
- The Lost Boyz

The Lost Boys are a hip hop group hailing from the dirty parts of New york. They fall in the same category as most of the albums that have been posted on here. By that i mean 90% of there songs deal with the struggles of the urban ghetto life and what they do to make ends meat. What makes this album stand out from a lot of other albums that were using the same formula is how these guys present them selves. Their raps about poverty, and growing up in the hard rough parts of new york is told in such a laid back tone that they sound almost as if they love the ghetto. And speaking of which, they do. A lot of the songs on this album either deal with the dangers and risks in living in the ghetto but there are also some nice "warm welcoming" songs that have the members boast about their love for their dirty poverty stricken society. It also goes with out saying that the production on this album is very jazzy, very laid back and smooth, even on the more "serious" songs. Mr. Cheeks and Freaky Tight are not even close to the most complex rappers or lyricist but they do have a nice tone and flow that make them stand out from other MCs that were coming out of NY at the time(and believe me in the mid 90s, hip hop was exploding with all sorts of upcoming acts in NY), also their voices just fit the gritty atmosphere that this record holds. One Ghetto Song after another, The Lost Boyz present an album with the kind of atmosphere that you would find in the dirtiest most rotten outskirts of New York city, where hookers and drug dealers play crabs and black jacks... and their raps about making that "LEGAL DRUG MONEY" and making it to the top will have you sucked in until the album is over. The Lost Boyz do what they gotta do to make that Legal Drug Money. Even if it means doing things that are not every "Legal"... GET IT FOLKS.

22. The Unseen

Artist: Madlib
Producer: Madlib
Released: 2000
Album title: THE UNSEEN

The best way I can describe this album is heavily psychedelic, jazzy, laid back, very "stoney", psychedelic spaced out production with lots of very stoned out instrumentals with a voice that may be hard for some to digest. The Unseen is a jazzy stoned out psychedelic masterpiece by hip hop Artist and Producer Madlib. He goes by bunch of different names and alter egos. Kind of a weird cat. But make no mistake about it, he makes some pretty epic tunes and is a very talented producer.

It should also be noted that Madlib recorded this entire album under the influence of Magic Mushrooms on a two week mushroom binge while recording this album.

Anyways, back to the real shit. The album is filled with spaced out dark yet up lifting heavy jazzy tunes with Madlib spitting raps as his alter ego "quasi moto". When he raps as quasimoto he changes his voice, it can sound pretty annoying and it might be hard for some to digest but I personally love it. Fits well with the albums weeded out spacey production. A lot of great bangers, my personal favorite is JAZZ CATS PT 1 which has both Madlib and his alter ego Quasi moto talking about getting blunted and listening to all their favorite jazz musicians and jazz artists from Herbie hancock to john Coltrane to shit, you name them they say em'. Another classic track is "return of the loop digga" which has Madlib looping out all kinds of jazzy tunes from the 60s era in a classic track which has a funny middle-break involving Madlib at a jazz store asking abunch of questions, ahaha, AND goes into an epic sinister instrumental with Madlib spitting out flows from all directions!!. I think a lot of people should check this album out just for its super spacey jazzy production created by Madlib, and it may take awhile to get use to Quasimotos voice. But the album is a straight classic.

Easily one of the best albums of all time.
