How have I not responded to this until now?! I have heard it, pretty sick, and yeah, could definitely have been a welcome edition to the back end of Stankonia (though Red Velvet and Humble Mumble are two of my favourites).

Cassie put me onto this track today. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo good.

I would put Cobbler on ignore until he listens to Madvillainy, but then I wouldn't know if he ever listened to it.

I get paid a month's worth tomorrow night. I will buy Madvillainy and five other albums you suggest that you know I haven't heard but would enjoy.

Didn't you say you've never heard College Dropout or Late Registration?

Buy both of those.

This is extending beyond hip-hop, but not terribly far:

1. Funkadelic - One Nation Under A Groove
2. Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul
3. Charles Mingus - The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady
4. A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
5. Black Star - Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star

I'm not sure if you've heard all of these, but I haven't heard you talk about them, so I'm assuming not. There's no way you've heard these classics and not come away with a strong opinion.

Got Late Rego but not College Dropout.

I haven't heard any of those five, believe it or not, though I certainly know they're all considered seminal albums of their respective genres. Will get em.

I've been trying to find Pete Rock & CL Smooth albums, since I loved so much that track posted a few pages back, but with little luck.

You might have to hit up Aussie eBay for those. There are a bunch of copies of The Main Ingredient on there, including a vinyl for $37.

Downloaded BBNG2, which I'll get around to, but HOLY SHIT WHAT THE HELL WAS I DOING WITH MY LIFE not listening to Section.80 last year? So fucking good.

I'm one and a half tracks into The Main Ingredient. How the hell did these guys not achieve greater fame? Were they big and they've just been forgotten about since falling out in the mid 90s? This fits my tastes perfectly. Could easily see it becoming an all-time favourite.

Nah, they never had any big singles. There wasn't a great deal of pop radio crossover for hip-hop in the mid-90s. Things changed later in the decade, but like Jay-Z's early stuff? The albums sold great, but he didn't have a lot of high charting singles. Pete Rock is an extremely beloved producer who had work for years, but he never had a breakthrough like that.

Really glad you were digging it.

Killer Mike's new album "R.A.P." just got BNM'd. I wonder if it's good, or another example of the rubbish taste the fork has in hip hop, because I've never been a big Killer Mike fan.

Can't say I'm a fan, but with El-P producing I'm at least curious to hear it.

Hey, I finally heard an Odd Future release that's worth a damn! Bastard is very likable. A little aimless and grates lyrically every once in a while, but I dig the more soulful vibe, the occasional good-time reprieves, and the fact that, for once, he achieved a truly surreal, psychedelic atmosphere. There's some real love in these grooves.

Goblin is still a bloated piece of shit with next to no redeeming values, but I'm more excited for Wolf now.

The Tipping Point is about as mediocre as I had always heard it was. Not bad by any means, but it's my least favorite Roots album going back to the early days.

No Church In The Wild - YouTube

Best track on the album, I reckon.
