A guide by G$ "Z-Wad" (B-More, MD)

Products sampled from this guide:
Here's my list of the top albums form 1997 (albums that I own). I tried to put them in order from my favorite and down from there. I only included albums that I think are worthy of 3 stars or higher so a few aren't on here (namely Mystikal's "Unpredictable"). The top 11 on here I'd give 5 or 4.5 stars and are must have albums. Check my other lists and reviews.
