Greatest Hip Hop Ever (just my opinion)

It Takes A Nation

"Every note is perfect. Crucial, thought provoking, and ushered in a completely new style of beats. Hip Hop's holy grail."
Paul's Boutique

"This album is a labyrinth of samples that can never be touched. This version contains instrumental Dust Bros. remixes of Hey Ladies & Shake Your Rump."
The Low End Theory

"This album has transcended hip hop. Timeless and just as fresh today."

"Sorry to all you haters, but this album completely warrants its postition. Every word is classic."

"Ice Cube was once the best rapper ever. I don't agree with some of his views, but the guy was brilliant.  Too bad he wasted his talent. This version contains the counterpiece "Kill At Will" EP."

"Pound for pound, greatest posse ever. This is basically a greatest hits. Stunningly original."

"First time I heard this back in 89, my jaw dropped. This contained the hardest beats I ever heard and the lyrics were completely over the top. It spawned 15 years of B.S., but these guys were the 1st."
Cypress Hill

"Completely original beats and flow. Lyrics a bit gangsta-cliched.  But two 90s staples - blunts and goatees - can be traced directly to this album."
The Chronic

"Gangsta was played long before this album came out, but Dre's beats and Snoop's insane delivery can't be denied."
Aquemini

"Greatest hip hop group today. They are the torchbearers for P-Funk, Miles, Fishbone, and Prince."

"This is art.  Rae, RZA, and Ghost created a whole new world with this."

"Love Below is just gravy. Speakerboxxx is the real classic."

"You obviously need BDP's "Criminal Minded" album as well, but this one contains many forgotten, latter day classics. Shoulda been a double disc."
Stankonia

"Again, OutKast are TNT dynamite."
Ultimate Run DMC

"Must give props to the kings. All their albums are classics. This is better than "Greatest Hits" since it has 'Raising Hell' on it."

"Cool J is the ONLY rapper from 85 still making hits. Check out the "Mama Said Knock You Out" album too."

"Timeless album, but an absolute DISGRACE that of the 50 Eric B & Rakim comps and reissues, none have the original 'Eric B Is President' 12" mix."

"Completely original. Thanks Rick. Also, check out the 'La-Di-Da-Di'/'The Show' single with Doug E. Fresh."

"The raps got a little weaker, but look what's obtainable when you try to be original."
Diggin in Dah Vaults

"Must be heard for the remixes of 'I Got Cha Opin' and 'Buck Em Down' alone - the 2 most underrated hip hop tracks of the entire 90s."
Illmatic

"All star roster of producers teamed with one of hip hop's all time great rhymers."
