It pains me to see that the first few pages of this forum barely mentions anything about real hip hop artists. So, since the last legit thread was a couple of years ago, I thought it was time to share and discover whats good. I'm open to everything, I hope you are too.
Let's start off with one of the best hip hop album of all time:
This is the first major album of Nas' career. With powerful lyricism and mad flow, Illmatic could be consider his perfect album. With tracks like "Life's A B**ch" and lines like
"It drops deep as it does in my breath
I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death
Beyond the walls of intelligence, life is defined
I think of crime when I'm in a New York state of mind "
- N.Y State Of Mind
this album was a breakthrough for lyrical rap.
If you were to listen to just one song I'd say "Life's A B**ch"
Please add to this list :]
