I just listened to the whole Liquid Swords album on Youtube for the 1st time, I missed so much quality shit from the 90s. Anyone got some more recommendations similar to that album? I like hip hop with intelligent lyrics and deep memorable beats and smooth flow, some of my favorites are tracks from Big Pun, Biggie, 2pac, Nas, Mobb Deep, Tech N9ne, Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks. Anything out there on their level of quality/style?

By that logic the 60s/70s/80s are over too so people should never listen to The Beatles, Elvis and Michael Jackson?
