Don't have the time @ the moment to compile a Top Ten (that'd be tough) but I like alotta the same stuff u have there bigted (Common!) and I'll also mention Jurassic 5 again (the first 6 or 7 tracks on "Quality Control" are all gold). Oh! And I gotta mention I have a soft spot for the rhymes of Young MC (the "Bust a Move" guy) on his album "Stone Cold Rhymin'," which even Will would label candy-rap (you can't laugh tho-- you ppl like Marky Mark). Oh and a great DJ cd with alotta different solid rappers on it is "Hands On" by Nu-Mark (from J5 again). Especially the Chali 2na track. Check that out, now. Oh and Nextmen's "Moving Amongst the Madness." Oh and J-Live's "All of the Above." And even tho he crosses genres, Wyclef Jean is amazing.

Let's here it for disjointed, stream-of-consciousness writing!! :eek4:

Hey man Usher's r&b, later on I'm might post my 10 favorite r&b albums later, all my choices change from time to time as I buy more albums but I mostly listen to JJFP and those artists I mentioned in the top 10 plus some of that Aceyalone and Pep Love that Tim introduced to me, I like to listen to ol' school Kurtis Blow, Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, and Sugar Hill Gang once in a while too.

Well.. It's really really hard 2 find the ten best Albums.. this is just my own list, so nothing which has 2 do with how often this record was sold or if it got 3 or 5 stars in the source!!

Boogie Down Production - Criminel Minded

Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince - He's the DJ I'm the rapper

Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince - Code Red

Pete Rock and CL Smooth - Mecca and the Soulbrothers

A tribe called Quest - Midnight Marauders

Souls of Mischief - Til Infinity LP

KRS one - Return of da Boom Bap

Organzied Konfusion - Organzied Konfusion

Ultramagnetic mc's - Funk your head up

Artifacts - Between a rock and a hard place

other classics I like: Just Ice- Back to the old school.. Souls of mischief - Triologie.. Hiero crew - Power that be... ultramagentic mc's - critical breakdown..

another very good album, which I don't own myself is the Dr. Octagon LP .. produced by Dan the Automator.. Digable Planets - Reachin..
