It's an album list not and MC list, difference. Besides Strickly for my Nigguz was my favorite pac album. He seemed to rush everything out after that. But he still had his moments.

100% AGREED....
But its actually quite fitting for the sole fact that AZ's been overly slept on as an artist throughout his whole career. Definitley an under-appreciated muscian.

Obviously Pac didn't think me against the world or all eyes on me were all of that. He flipped out because some other rappers were getting shine. He felt like his music wasn't reaching the people, so he resorted to drastic measures to bring attention to his sh*t. He felt like his music wasn't good enough to get him the shine he wanted, so he had to call out other rappers in an unprecedented manor. And if he felt that way I felt that way too.

I'm ma give it to you straight up no chaser. Tribe never had that hard punishing track that pulled me in. I got much love for ATCQ. Now EPMD! I'll admit it. I hold a grudge against them. When Smiff n Wessun and Mobb Deep came out I dropped them like a bad habit. They let me down. I was their biggest fan and they just broke up on some ole ego sh*t. The game was ripe for the taken and they just split like some big ass lips when the temperature drops. Erick and Parrish w/ DJ Scratch cuttin it up man they put together some bangin joints.

I told yall this is some definitive sh*t. This ain't a joke. I stand by my list. Feel free to question it, I got answers. Thanks for the props and thanks for telling me what you think should be on there. Good job so far.

It's sad that Pun passed. I thought he was poised to make that classic album, that would put him in a class by himself. So much like Big L's situation. This trio Mos, Kwali, and Common are in a catch 22. Their album suffer because of label politics. The lablel can't or won't give them the proper promotion so to make up for it, they get the artist to put light weight tracks on their album. They all haves songs that I'll never be able to erase from my mind, true gems. Then they got those WTF songs, sh*t sundaes, supposedly potential radio singles, that I didn't agree with. Jurassic Five? Well I missed that bus. Somebody would have to force me to listen to them. Because they never put out that song that grabbed my attention, I don't have much of an opinion on them good or bad. Redman's Whut Thee Album is not one of those joints that I get the urge to go back and listen to. It was hot in the moment. Muddy Waters was Red on top of his game. I like Luda, just not any of his albums yet. And Yukmouth pulled it off with the weed song 5 on it. That's it. His moment in the spot light was a weed song, not a good look for someone on a comback as a solo artist. That's a hard sell for me.

Agreed I'm pissed off at myself for missing BDK. I thought I had it, I was moving too fast. When I do my 26-50 I'll address that.
