1. A Tribe Called Quest - Scenario
2. Mobb Deep - Shook One Pt. II
3. Nas - It Ain't Hard to Tell
4. Blackstar - Thieves in the Night
5. Jay-Z ft. Biggie Smalls - Brooklyn's Finest
6. Big Daddy Kane - Ain't No Half-Steppin'
7. Boogie Down Productions - South Bronx
8. Big L - MVP
9. Biggie Smalls - Juicy
10. Pete Rock and CL Smooth - They Reminisce Over You
11. Gangstarr - All 4 Tha Cash
12. Rakim & Eric B. - Paid in Full

17. Smiff N Wessun - Bucktown
18. Dead Prez - Hip Hop
19. Dre and Snoop - Ain't Nothin' But a G Thang
20. Outkast - Southern Playalistic Cadillac Funky Music
That is a good ass CD right there, I have everyone of those songs on my comp. But I think I would make a few changes, but still get the basics covered.
Tupac-On the block we still pray
Big L-Put it on
Notorios B.I.G-Gimme tha loot
OutKast-ATLiens
Tribe Called Quest-Buggin' Out


Still a sweet list none the less!!!!
;-D


But if you're into a different kind of rap, MF Doom Madvillainy or VV2. It's more trippy in a different explantion, but it covers everything gangsta, video games, comics, Food (Off the MMM..Food album), Road Rage, and a lot more. If you're lloking for new rap I would try, Game-The Documentary Ludacris-Word of Mouf. If you like fast rap try Twista and Bone Thugs N Harmony-greatest hits, if you have heard Biggie and like Biggie I highly suggest Ready to Die. You love funk beats and just bomb westcoast beats with good rapping, The Chronic and The Chronic 2001. If you like Souther Rap I would try T.I.-King or Scareface-The Fix or The Untouchable. If you like Nas' smooth voice The Lost tapes, if you like old school try the Ultrmagnetic MC's, or if you like Old School Gangsta rap try NWA greatest hits. Beastie Boys-Paul Boutique.
If you like scratch try The X-ecutioners-Built from Scratch, or if you just like funky, trippy (not really rap beats, kinda like scratching, but still kinda hip-hop) beats try DJ Shadow.


















ANY OF WU-TANGS MORE FAMOUS CDS!!!!
Gza-liquids Swords
Reakwon the Chef-Only built For Cuban Linx
Method Man-Tical
The Wu-Tang Clan-36 chambers, WU-Tang Forever, The W and Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture-Think Differently Music! ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D!!

If you want beef than Bring Da Ruckus! Wu-Tang Clan ain't nuttin' to F' Wit!





















P.S.-Never forget Mo-Town either!
Keep it lit.

If you took a poll of people who knew all 9 albums (insert joke here on how it would only be like 3 people), "No Place For Disgrace" would probably be the favorite. They do a kick ass cover on there of Elton John's "Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting". I'd also recommend "When The Storm Comes Down", "Cuatro", "Drift", or "High" as a good starting place.

Obviously I'm biased because I love them all, but those 5 would be the 1st ones I gave to someone to try and get someone into them. "Doomsday" is their heaviest and a little raw. "Unnatural Selection" is good but probably my least favorite. "My God" is good but I think the earlier albums capture their energy a little better. "Dreams Of Death" is awesome. It's kinda like "The Wall" in that the entire album revolves around telling 1 story. It's about a psychotic killer who can't tell if his dreams are real or not.

They're not for everyone but if you like ANY 80's thrash/heavy metal, you'll like Flotsam & Jetsam. ;-D

W00t! Another Stoopid fan.

I used to listen to the Acoustic Roots CD so much I've kinda burnt out on it. So I listen to the new stuff a lot more.

Go with as much 80s music you can find. Load up on the greatest hits from major artists during the decade, and focus on the one hit wonders so to speak to fill in any gaps. That's the strategy I've used, and I still find a few songs here or there I didn't have before.

PM me if you want the list or 'master spreadsheet'. ;-D

I've been into finding the more upscure 80s soundtracks lately. Revenge of the Nerds, etc. that you just can't seem to find in the stores.

I would recommend Cuatro for someone just getting into FNJ. Its still heavy and melodic at the same time. If you dig it then the older stuff is bit harder and edgier IMO. Flotsam is an incredible live band too.

Good call there MSB. ;-D

It's hard for me to pick just 1 but I think you're right. Try Cuatro and then if you like that you can go back and try some of the earlier heavier albums. Also, if you like Cuatro you should like the latter albums as well. Let us know what you think Sling (or anyone else for that matter ;-) )!
