Cork on Fork: Crucial rap albums in my opinion, and I do not listen primarily to rap:

Straight Out The Jungle - The Jungle Brothers
A Tribe Called Quest - People's Instinctive travels and the Paths of Rhythm
Ice T - O.G. Original Gangster
The Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising
Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet
The Geto Boys - The Geto Boys
N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton

I would add :

Run DMC - Raising Hell
Eric B. and Rakim - Paid in Full
Nas - Illmatic
Tupac Shakur - Me Against the World and All Eyez on Me
Outkast - ATLiens and Stankonia

Can we throw in mebbe Pharcyde Bizzare Ryde?

needs more EPMD and Wu-Tang.


Slick Rick (The Great Adventures of Slick Rick) and LL Cool J (could be a few albums) need to be on the list. Maybe some Big Daddy Kane as well.


A few from this century

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
Jurassic 5 - Quality Control
Madvillain - Madvillainy

I love EPMD. Strictly Business had a sweet flow...

Madvillainy! What a great album.

For prime black-leftist thought in the vein of Huey Newton, we can throw The Coup's Party Music on this list as an exemplar of the genre, right?

Keyser_Soze_Death: So, people actually buy and listen to this crap?

/the more you know


Yeah. My roommate is a Kanye Sooperfan. He went out to the projected videos in Houston and was all butthurt about noen of them happening.

I've heard 2 Kanye songs i like, but i don't get his mass appeal. I do get that he is in a position to do whatever he likes and if you like it great, if you don't he doesn't care. I can appreciate that. I just wish he was into something more listenable.

The new flaming lips album is pretty good though, dark, but good. Skip Kanye, pick that up.

I'll never understand the hype about this guy. Maybe I haven't given him a fair listen, but from what I can tell he has very little lyrical talent. How can you be a rapper if you suck at rapping and can't write good lyrics?
 
2013-06-17 03:33:11 PM
I would put Things Fall Apart or even Game Theory on the list before Phrenology when it comes to The Roots, but I don't know if that's just my preference or if I am right about which Roots albums are the most influential.
 
2013-06-17 03:35:45 PM
The first The Weeknd album, House of Balloons is over two years old now and yet maims, kills and buries anything Kanye manages to unleash from his diseased bowels in the name of 'entertainment'.
Get that, not this.

I'm not convinced that Kayne doesn't pay for positive reviews, especially now that he is part of the Kardashian clan that pays Yahoo! to keep them on the homepage and calls the paparazzi on themselves. He writes lyrics like an elementary student and samples music.......wooooooo, he's Puffy pt.2 without all the money.

Snapper Carr: A few from this century


I guess I was looking at the list more like "important" albums - ones that changed the game, expanded the audience who listened to rap, etc. The Beastie Boys, Tribe, De La Soul, Run DMC (and similar) made rap mainstream. The social commentary in Public Enemy lyrics was so much more complex than anyone had used before. The other albums each helped rap evolve in one way or another.

So, that's why my choices were older.

rickythepenguin: Glitchwerks: Tons of stuff like this was done in the 90s-00s during the whole "illbient" phase, but done much, much better.

I vastly preferred chillbient, east coast downtempo, new school asian dubtempo, no wave sludgecore, west coast grindcore, deep house trancecore, gabber, durty south screw, old school southern slamgrass, chicago sludge, acid jazz, trip hop, new school ska, florida bass, spoken word....

Smelly McUgly: College Dropout was well-produced and had some decent lyrics, and Late Registration and Graduation Day had some good tracks, but Kanye sucks lyrically and hasn't dropped anything that is any good on that front since the opening to "Can't Tell Me Nothin'."

However, since 808s and Heartbreak, Kanye has been pretty much unlistenable. He could get away with being irritating if he was actually a good rapper or at least a good producer, but at this point, he's basically terrible.


I could not agree with you more. I used to be a big Kanye fan, but everything he's done since 808s has sucked, in my opinion. I'm not even going to bother buying this latest one.

Marketing. How is Bieber a star? Why does anyone take Miley Cyrus seriously? Same deal, different moron. This one's a bit more narcissistic and pretentious than most, but he's no different than any other manufactured "artist" - he's all marketing, no talent, a useless tool through which others make money.

I must have terrible taste, because I kind of like Kanye.  Granted, his albums have progressively gotten worse over time, but I still think they're quite good.

Digital Underground - Sex Packets (lots of good stuff on there besides Humpty Dance)

Bieber and Cyrus are bubblegum pop stars, people don't expect anything of substance from them, and they deliver what people expect. They are good at what they do, it's just really superficial. Kanye doesn't even seem good at what he does. His best 'songs' are just him just remixing and diluting works by far superior artists like Daft Punk and King Crimson. It's like me photoshopping the background of the Mona Lisa and calling myself the Jesus of this generation's artists.

SlothB77: Metacritic has Yeezus at 84, with Rolling Stone giving it a 90 and billboard an 88.

Yeezus is the darkest, most extreme music Kanye has ever cooked up, an extravagantly abrasive album full of grinding electro, pummeling minimalist hip-hop, drone-y wooz and industrial gear-grind. Every mad genius has to make a record like this at least once in his career--at its nastiest, his makes Kid A or In Utero or Trans all look like Bruno Mars.


I think I'm having a stroke because I can't form a coherent sentence out of that.
