So, I'm just finishing up Aquemini, which I liked a great deal, but man, some albums just go on and on and on, and it kills me because I'm really enjoying them, but getting a little exhausted with really enjoying them at the same time, if that makes sense. Anyways, I loved quite a few tracks on it, and the production was phenomenal. "spottieottiedopaliscious" was pretty awesome. And I loved the "skits" on this one (they didn't feel so much like skits here).

So, here are the hip hop albums I have heard (according to RYM):

Lil Wayne - Rebirth
Aesop Rock - Labor Days
The Black Eyed Peas - The E.N.D.
Nelly - 5.0
Sir Mix-a-Lot - Mack Daddy
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak
Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty
The Black Eyed Peas - Elephunk
B.o.B. - B.o.B. Presents the Adventures of Bobby Ray
Coolio - It Takes a Thief
A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders
DJ Shadow - Endtroducing.....
Nas - Illmatic
Outkast - Stankonia
The Black Eyed Peas - The Beginning
Gnarls Barkly - St. Elsewhere
Dr. Dre - The Chronic
Gorrillaz - Plastic Beach
Outkast - Aquemini
Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantsay
Gorillaz - Demon Days
Kanye West - Graduation
N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton

(Girl Talk - All Day, Night Ripper, Feed the Animals
Danger Mouse - The Grey Album) < No clue if you could include those or not, ya know?

Of all of those albums, I would say that there are five clear albums that I really do love and count as favorites:

1) N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton (I have no clue why, I just have a lot of fun with this)
2) Kanye West - Graduation
3) Outkast - Aquemini (The caveat here though, is I just don't know how often I'm going to listen to this album, I really am bad about listening to "long" albums, unless they're by artists I really love
4) Gorillaz - Demon Days
5) Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

So, based on that, hip hop purists, where do I go next?

glad to hear you enjoyed Aquemini! whilst it is now comfortably my favourite hip hop album, i do to take issue with its length. i can't remember the last time i listened to it in full, but it was definitely in the car. that said, Mamacita is the only track i could do without.

How do all you purists feel about your hero, Justin Beiber, cutting his hair?

Yep! He was either on or is going to be on an upcoming episode of CSI. Nick Stokes takes him out. And then, the whole world was gracious.

Hip-hop artists don't understand the concept of conciseness. It's an issue I have with a lot of albums within the genre as well.

I agree with Travis on Madvillainy and Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star; those are two of my favorite albums of all time.

I'd also add in (with my highest suggestions in bold):

Cecil Otter - Rebel Yellow
dead prez - Let's Get Free
Dessa - A Badly Broken Code
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP (whatever you think of Em, this is his magnum opus and a must-listen from beginning to end)
Eric B & Rakim - Paid in Full
Fashawn - Boy Meets World
Jay-Z (with The Roots as a backing band) - MTV Unplugged
K'naan - The Dusty Foot Philosopher
Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor
Mos Def - Black on Both Sides
Outkast - ATLiens


Um, yeah, start there.

"Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" - 5:08

"Girls, Girls, Girls" - 4:41
"Jigga What, Jigga Who" - 2:34

"Can I Get A..." - 1:42
"Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)" - 1:31
"Ain't No Nigga" - 1:02
"Can't Knock the Hustle/Family Affair" (featuring Mary J. Blige) - 6:06
"Song Cry" - 7:04
"I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" (featuring Pharrell) - 6:58

All songs were produced by Questlove, The Roots; "People Talking" produced by Ski.

Yeah, pop music in general is pretty bad about that (not that rap is pop, but I think you get me).

I can't believe I still haven't heard Madvillainy, those two probably are the next albums I'll venture out with.

Duly noted.

The thing with The Marshall Mathers LP is that when I was a kid I heard so much from it at one point or another, I guess I just never bothered with the album itself, to the point where I never realize that I haven't actually heard it . I probably should get around to that.
