8. BP3 (Sorry critics, it's good. Empire (Gave Frank a run for his money))
9. Dynasty (Intro alone...)
10. Vol. 3 (Pimp C verse alone... oh, So Ghetto)
11. BP2 (Too many songs. Fucking Guru and Hip Hop, ha)
12. Kingdom Come (First game back, don't shoot me)"
glad to see he knows kingdom come sucked. reasonable doubt and the black album are my favorites. i think blueprint is super overrated, and american gangster is underrated. still haven't given magma a shot.
I like his rankings..Personally the only change I would make is Black Album over Blueprint, and Vol 3 over Dynasty. MCHG is good. Theres about 6 - 8 songs that I really like, but the rest is forgettable.
This documentary was very well done. Every hip hop head should go see it...
oh yeah, I saw this at the LA screening at Cinefamily last year. Absolutely fascinating, and very well done. The subject is right in my wheelhouse, so I was probably going to love it either way, but I think even people not super into hip-hop or the label will find it interesting.
edit: sooooo much good rap music coming out in the next week. Vince Staples on thursday, and YG's album and the Freddie Gibbs/Madlib record both come out a week from tomorrow. Oh yeah, and Future's new album finally has a release date for next month and the tracklist is looking real nice.
I found this because the drummer for The Body said it's one of his favorite albums. It is fucking crazy. I really don't know what to compare this to besides maybe Esham or maybe early Three 6 Mafia. This shit is really fucking weird.
