Better list so far than I thought, considering BCB's general aversion to hip hop.

I have it at #9...That combined with your vote will probably make up all it's scoring...lol...



Nope. It's high on my list.

Completely forgot about Boogie Down Productions! That was a cool record!

Great batch, this latest. I'm surprised at To Pimp a Butterfly landing outside the top 10 considering how much of a landmark album that's become in the past few years in its genre, and deservedly so. Illmatic also nearly made the cut in my list, I believe I had it at #21-22. Curious about the top 10!

Colour me shocked. Remarkably low.

Well, I’m pretty impressed by this list so far. Perhaps it’s the rap equivalent of Revolver, Pet Sounds, yada yada but it feels fresh.

I'm surprised Strictly Business didn't get a few more votes; it ticks every box for me, and sounds just as good today as it did 30 years ago.

I have a fleeting memory of the 'Guerillas in tha Mist' single, but i've gotta admit this crew and album flew under my radar at the time. One to check out now for sure.

I think I underrated it myself, I'm listening to it again right now. If there's a complaint against it, it's that it's at a time when hip-hop was getting a political consciousness and had something to say. EPMD didn't have something to say, and barely sound awake enough to get the words out anyway. But that's also its charm, laid back, with a proper groove to it, and it sounds effortless.

File after the Dog Pound. At least the Dog Pound had DJ Kurupt in it.

Very BCB. De La Soul is Dead should be in the list but wouldn't be in my top 10. It might not even scratch top 20.

Endtroducing is good, but I'd put the best of Madlib, Q-Bert, MF Doom, J Dilla and Flying Lotus up there with that.

The list is for favorite though, and if they float people's boats, I guess it deserves the ranking.

I should have put You're Dead! into my list, in hindsight. I have on my side included a bit of MF Doom and Madlib too, whilst J Dilla barely missed the cut.

Not many people voted for Absence but those who did it placed it very highly and gave it enough points to compete with albums in the top 10, maybe even top 5. I consider that a victory.

De La Soul are popular around here, aren't they?

To be honest, I feel like a total fraud voting in this thing because I don't really listen to rap anymore at all, apart from a few pillowy things from the 90s, and my consumption of this stuff has always been erratic. So I don't really feel qualified to vote at all. But I know what I like and what I don't. SO . . I guess it's a minority view, but Compton and Chronic aren't in the Top 10. Or even the Top 20. It's disgusting.
