Wow, rateyourmusic has it at #8 for hip-hop in general and #191 overall. That's crazy. Awesome, but crazy. I don't know when it happened, but it's absolutely a hip-hop touchstone now. Maybe the day that this happened:



Hip-hop covers don't happen often, but when they do, it's an incredible sign of respect. Great MC, great song choice.

Givin' y'all nothing but the lick like two broads
Got more lyrics than the church got 'Ooh Lords'
And he hold the mic and your attention like two swords
Or even one with two blades on it
Hey you, don't touch the mic like it's AIDS on it

I wish I lived in a world where this could be a huge single, but I'm not even sure it's going to be released in that capacity. Air-tight hit right here, and the album is dope.

Kanye and Curren$y are favorite acts in hip-hop at the moment.

While Madvillainy is great, for me the Quasimodo albums are among the greatest hiphop albums ever. True Madlib genius.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's struggled with Madvillainy. I can't actually seem to finish the album, despite the times I've tried.

I dug Madvillainy almost immediately

As far as weird conceptual hip-hop goes, I think it's far more accessible than say, Dr Octagonycologist.

Hahaha I listened to that album when I had a bad cold once and was half asleep. Really trippy stuff, I barely remember any of it other than it was bizarre and raunchy.

Bizarre and raunchy about sums it up; Kool Keith is rather scatalogically obsessed. I can't say I love it, but certain songs work well (Blue Flowers) and the production by Dan the Automator is pretty good.

I'm starting to dig R.A.P. Music a bit more. I can feel what's going on here; purist, old-school hip-hop with some really in your face rapping and lyricism. It's not something to throw on whenever, but it does make you feel like a badass whenever you do.

Big Beast and Ghetto Gospel are my favorite tracks taking everything into account, but the beat of Jo Jo's Chillin' goes hard.

I have to say, Liquid Swords in my top five hip-hop albums now. It took me a while but jesus christ is it good. I'd say it and Kaputt are my two most-listened-to albums in the past year.

GZA is just an absolute master. His style doesn't hit you immediately like Ghostface, ODB or RZA, it's more like death by a thousand cuts.

Ab-Soul has a serious mancrush on Yeezy.

Besides this one sampling Addiction heavily:



There's one track on the album that references "Yeezy taught me" and there's another track here called "Beautiful Death." Makes me smile to see My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy already proving so influential on young hip hop acts.

There were three or four references to it on Section.80.

I'm only on track 1 of R.A.P. Music, but...it can't possibly be this good straight through right?

Big Beast is probably the best thing on there, but everything else is strong as well (save for Reagan which is stunningly embarrassing)

"Big Beast" starts so strong and then "Untitled" is quite good as well. It's not that it gets bad after that, but it goes from, "Oh shit, oh shit, this is my favorite album ever" to #15 of just this year by then end of the listen. "Reagan" is fucking hilarious. I'm so glad that song exists...but so confused by its existence in 2012. I like how he tries to tie it together by throwing in some lyrics about Obama, and it's just a beautiful train wreck of hilarity.
