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.

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).

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?
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.

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.

Is the song that blatantly rips off Modest Mouse Lupe's song? I hear it everywhere.

yeah. i'm glad i live under a rock and was only exposed to it via oneblood's DI list. that caused me to like it (probably also having something to do with me hearing "float on" on the radio by accident while driving home from work, an hour or so before i listened to that list), whereas if i'd heard it under circumstances completely outside my control i might think it to be incredibly annoying.

Understandable. There's significantly more thought-provoking material on the album than the singles, even including "Stan," would let on. "Criminal" is a great example of that, with Em taking on critics who claim that lyrics=reality. The skits are pretty awful, and I deleted them, but that's pretty typical for me with hip-hop skits. I dislike 99.99999% of them.

Actually, other than "The Show Goes On," I haven't heard the new singles. Any chance he's releasing the worst of the batch early?

Based on some of the freestyles he's been doing recently, I'm pretty psyched for Lasers yet.

And, these are for IWB:

good call on recommending ATLiens, i'm sure it comes as no surprise to hear me back that up. the production is astounding. it could come out in 2013 and you wouldn't bat an eyelid.

Nobody on rateyourmusic has gotten to it yet, but if this is true, I'll let you know shortly.

LASERS LEAKED A FEW HOURS AGO!


(Travis, I know you're not as psyched about this as you were a few months ago, but still! Wooooooo!)
