Heres a couple of My favorite rap albums that i think you all would enjoy. I am a big fan of east coast rap, the rhyming is genious and the attitude is awesome. M.O.P. is my favorite group, they roc the mic like no other, here are their albums.

Warriorz
To the Death
First Family 4 Life
Firing Squad

By the way these are in no particular order, im just writing them down as they come to me, but next of course we have biggie. Like he says he is a rap phenomenon.


Life After Death
<product no longer available>
Born Again

Roc a Fella records has a lot of good albums out, their best ones are by Jayz and Bleek though

The Dynasty: Roc La Familia 2000
Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse
Reasonable Doubt
The Blueprint
Coming of Age
The Understanding

Nas Is Very good, and i would recommend buying all his albums, despite what jayz says, he is very talented, but these are his bests i think, also his man aziatic

God's Son
Illmatic
Stillmatic
<product no longer available>

Fabolous is also another favorite of mine, he only has 2 albums out but they are the shizz

Street Dreams
Ghetto Fabolous

The St. Lunatiks, nellys crew, are good too. They are kind of more of a party rap.

Free City
Heavy Starch

Project Pat isnt that talented for rhyming because he makes his own words up a lot, but still i like his style and beats

Layin Da Smack Down
Mista Don't Play: Everythangs Workin'
Ghetty Green

Another of fav of mine is ludacris and disturbing tha peace. They are loud funky and have a style their own, and ludacris can make up some funny rhymes.

Word of Mouf
Back For The First Time
Golden Grain

Eminem is good, but i only like the eminem show and the 8 mile soundtrack

The Eminem Show
8 Mile (Deluxe Limited Edition)

And if you have heard of capone and noreaga your missing out.

War Report
N.O.R.E.
Reunion
God's Favorite

Other rappers i enjoy are Xzbit, Snoop, Dre, Camron, Freeway, Beanie Siegel, Of course the Wu tang clan, they are always a classic, methodman and redman, Naughty by nature, onyx, Gang Starr, Jeru the Damaga, Mobb Deep, and others, but this should give you a good idea on whats out there and whats hot, this isnt a complete list either, just some of the basics.
