Hey ANGE

Is it just up to you whether something is considered a hip-hop album?

For example, can I vote for Endtroducing? What about the Last Poets album? What about Dylan and the Dead? Tristan und Isolde?

Is it just the case that if gets on the list if enough people consider it hip-hop and vote for it?

Hey PENK,

No, I will not be the self-appointed arbiter of what is or isn't Hip Hop/Rap - if you think it's Hip Hop/Rap and want it on your list, that's good enough for me.

So while i might privately (and publicly) question your faculties if your list contains Dylan and the Dead, i'll back your right to include it in your list 100%

Hope this helps you, and anybody else who is thinking of joining our little albums poll.

Done! Hoping/expecting my utterly predictable 20 will be complemented by deeper cuts like MC Bob & Da Band, etc.

Thanks for all your lists!

I'll start tallying today, so hopefully results will be posted in the next couple of days.

I've sent a couple of PMs out regarding a few people's lists, so hopefully will get those sorted out quickly.

Stay tuned!

Great stuff, cheers Ange!

A couple there I’m not familiar with, but some good picks I do know. How can anything other than ’The Champ’ be the key track on Fishscale?

That particular cut was a big BCB hit at the time. I think Matt Profile started about fourteen separate threads on it!

Y'know, I completely overlooked Maxinquaye, it mustn't be tagged as hip-hop on rateyourmusic, or else I'd have voted for it.

And how can you have "Renegades" rather than "Bury Me Slowly" or "Jokes on Me" as the key track on Wooden Tongues. Sort it, fangey-boy...
