I love all the interludes with interviews from the talk shows he was on and the news reports. That really sets the tone for the songs on the album.You can feel the pissed off-ness and anger during this time. This was right after the Rodney King verdict. Album could probably be re-made for today's happenings.

I'm still stuck in the 90's. I just don't talk about it anymore because people give me that look.

I finally got Beats Rhymes and Life - ATCQ DB as a Valentine's present and watched it last week. God damn that almost brought tears to my eyes.

Hey I'm guilty of it too. The 90s are the best in hip-hop. It probably will never be topped how great that decade was for hip-hop.

Glad you watched Beats, Rhymes and Life. I watched it when it first came out and need to watch it again. ATCQ is so great.

I'm stuck in the 90s too. I can't name too many artists that I bump if they didn't at least have a single or feature in the 90s.

Here are the top ten hip hop albums of the 90s imo.

...trying to be as objective as possible and not just pick my own personal favorites.

1. Illmatic
2. Enter the Wu Tang: 36 Chambers
3. Ready to Die
4. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
5. The Chronic
6. Me Against the World
7. Aquemini
8. The Infamous
9. The Low End Theory
10. Reasonable Doubt

Man that was tough.

That...was...TOUGH.

This might actually be the most underrated album of the 90s.

Tough to be the follow up record to a classic like Illmatic.

But it's almost as good imo.

...Jay Z is an idiot.

This is a really good list. Some of these would be in my top 10. Might take me some time to do a list like this. One thing is I prefer Midnight Marauders over The Low End Theory.

I think you could make a convincing argument that Midnight Marauders is the better record.

But I feel like Low End Theory was the more influential piece of work.

While the East Coast & West Coast were putting out some good stuff in the 90's, I feel that Houston was owning everyone back then.
Rap-a-lot was the king, in my book.

Geto Boys, The Terrorists, Ganksta NIP, Fifth Ward Boys, & their affiliates such as Seagram and Point Blank were on a roll for years.
I still have all of that stuff on cassette and cd. Some of it is very difficult to find/expensive nowadays.

I like the Geto Boys and I like Scarface.

But aside from Outkast, I'm just not a big fan of what the South has brought to the hip hop world.

...I will carve out some time on youtube for these other acts you mentioned.

I'm in the reverse camp. I also love their debut too.
