this song wouldn't sound out of place on michael jacksons thriller.

Love that song. The only song I've willingly watched on Much Music in the last 5 years or so.

I don't think it's possible to be Canadian and not have heard Man I Used To Be or Crabbuckit at least a gazillion times. The Love Song is another one that got a ton of airplay.

Both albums in full are great though. Definitely worth a listen.

del - deltron 3030
blackalicious - blazing arrow

You up on the roots?

their best album is still "do you want more" to me, but their new stuff is good too, love these tracks

this one was a little commercial but it rocks

Jay-Z hasn't recovered ever since Big-L tore his ass up.

From what's been posted, i guess this might be considered mainstream... but they're some of the best albums to come out since 2000

Beanie Sigel - The B. Coming
Freeway - Philedelphia Freeway & Free at Last
Obie Trice - Cheers
Styles P. - Time is Money
Fabolous - There Is No Competition (mixtape)

http://youtube.com/watch?v=vBgjNujbH4o <--- infamous era mobb deep beat if they lived in the year 2100

Those beats are pimp. The first one is kinda similar to listening to some doom metal ****. I'll give it a look.
