If you like alchemist with mobb deep check out "return of the mac" prodigys 2007 solo album the production is top notch and prodigy is as gully as it gets... Check out "H.N.I.C" and "free agents" while you're at it

Some other recommendations:
Scarface - "the fix", "made", and "my balls and my word"

Sean price - "jesus price supastar" that album is hard as hell

Jay-z - "the blueprint", "american gangster"

Of course I have HNIC and free agents. Mobb Deep is my favourite and always will be.

Some good albums since 2000:
Murs- Murs 3:16
Murs- Murrays Revenge
Little Brother- The Listening
Little Brother- The Minstrel Show
Little Brother- Getback
Common- Be
Jay-Z- Blueprint
Jay-Z- Brooklyn Soul (Remix album which I prefer to AG)
Jay-Z and Dangermouse- The Grey Album (Remix album of The Black Album. Much Better than the Original IMO)
Kanye- College Dropout
Lupe- Food and Liquor
Lupe- The Cool

Too Many To List, I'll probably put some more in later. I bolded my favorites so that you don't need to look through too much stuff if you don't want to.

Gotta echo that along with every other album he's had that I've listened to. Disposable Arts is probably my favourite, but they're all way up there on my list of favourite albums. The king of concept.

Ye "Food and Liquor" is nice. I was really disappointed with "The Cool." It had a few good songs, but there was a lot of trash on that album.

Jay-Z has been a beast in the past 8 years, I don't know what your saying bballog, and genciba, that wasn't a freestyle, both were writing, they weren't even going at each other, some would say Jay did a better job at it too...

I remember all the hype Lupe Fiasco had. Seemed like every other hour, a thread titled "BIGGEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR COMING SOON" , "THE COOL ALBUM COVER RELEASED!!!" , "LUPE FIASCO=LEGEND"

Lupe is my boy, but I agree with that comment that "The Cool" put me to sleep.

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein.
Saul Williams - The Inevitable Rise and Fall of Niggy Tardust

Both very good.

Oh god...This is a legit lost diamond (Small pun)


I listened to this once and couldn't find it again, lots of my people don't like Lupe, but the first minute is soo catchy.
