    Need some help on this as I know most of you guys are big hip hop fans.

    I have a few hip hop albums but wouldnít say a huge selection. Iím looking to expand in this genre and would like to get some recommendations. Looking to stuff thatís easy to get into as you can tell from what I have that most of my stuff are easy to access.

    What I have:
    - a few jay z (black album, those mashups with Radiohead and the Beatles, blueprint)
    - Eminem show, Marshall mathers ep, slim shady
    - aquemini, stankonia, speakeboxx/love below
    - roots (forgot which ones, but I really like them
    - rage against the machine (all of them, big fan)
    - nwa
    - public enemy
    - illmatic
    - linkin park
    - limp bizkit (horrible, just horrible)
    - paid the cost to be the boss
    - miseducation of lauryn hill
    - fugees best of
    - Kendrick Lamar (one of them, forgot which one)
    - beastie boys (a few, but forgot exactly which one)
    - puff daddy (the one after big died)
    - a best or of big
    - a few Tupac


    Iím looking to getting some a tribe called quest and some Rahim. Want to get some snoop and cypress hill but not sure which ones.



    Any other recommendations?

    You are missing Ice Cube. Get Death Certificate and Amerikkka's Most Wanted.

    Throw away Puff Daddy.

    All that No Limit has aged horribly. I can't believe I used to like Kane & Abel and the Down South Hustlers tape. When I listen to it now the only good song on the album is Point Blank's My Mind Went Blank, and that song got kind of ed since it's screwed. The original at normal speed is so much better.

    Aw man, how did I leave these three off? Also, The Pharcyde - Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde is a must. Also Tha Alkaholiks - 21 & Over is an incredibly underrated album from the west coast. I'll put that on my list too, every song on the album is strong.

    Aceyalone - A Book of Human Language would definitely be one of my hidden gems. I really liked Dr Octagon - Dr Octagonecologyst also, but that album is weird as . Then again, so is Quasimoto - The Unseen, but damn the beats on that are epic.

    I still listen to a lot of the old No Limit stuff, but from the main members only.. TRU, Master P, C-Murder, Mystikal, Fiend.. all the other fringe members were pretty crappy except for maybe Soulja Slim and Mac, but one killed, and the other got killed. I'd have to disagree about the screwed stuff too, I been banging Screw for the last 20 years and still prefer the screwed and chopped versions.

    I had that Down South Hustlaz CD too it was like 3 discs or some

    Damn Tru's album True is terrible outside of Master P's verse in I'm Bout It. I can't get into screwed records man, all that sounds re ed. Lil Keke's Still Pimpin Pens is 100x better in the original version, as is ESG's Swanging and Banging.

    I didn't like the TRU album either.. too old.. their production quality stepped up around TRU 2 Da Game

    Another classic album.. I asked in another thread mentioning old school UGK if anyone thought Bun B (and Pimp C if he was alive) regretted some of the lyrics in Pregnant Pussy
