Chewin alligator meat live cowsteak
sittin on old newspapers by thekitchen sink
You think im off limits driving a 74 Dodge Plymouth
Up the street with human feet colored apple-green
with spots eatinblueberry Pop Tarts
With the eighth body in my trunk my elbow bleeds with lumps
Walkin from the sanitation dump with rotten skulls
on my waterbed with Miller beer kegs
Blood in my cabinet, ears in my closet
watchin the Raptors play the Houston Rockets
With your arms in the freezer I grab a icicle
puttin fingerprints on my bicycle
Walkin up to have a drink at the club ?there is? three Irish chicks
lookin at me like im sick
Walkin by chin-chins I stole the keys from ya friends
Lookin out ya ?Madrion? hotel window like Elvis Presley
coming down the elevator
Good evening mister excuse me pardon me with body parts
And credit cards walkin down Sunset Boulevard past the red light
I threw a rat with mayonnaise at ya head lights
Four blonde girls screamed and put on their hi-beams
I fake like i'm ?vomiting smoking sick? threw acid on their stomachs
And drove of with a wig down La Brea listen to a tape by Slayer
Parked in a parking lot behind Burger King
eatin a raw pack of chicken wings
With blood on my fingers I blast a CD by the Staple Singers
The cops told me to turn it down,
they like my shoes from Buster Brown
I went up the block an bought some incense
for the wrong smells in the air conditioner vents
Hey kid need twenty cents havin a cook-out with my neighbor
How ya like the meat flavor mmmm

Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five - The Message
Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions...
Themselves - The No Music
The Last Poets - The Last Poets
Boogie Down Productions - Gheto Music the Blueprint for Hip Hop

I considered Dr. Octagon, but really "Blue Flowers" is so much better than the rest of the album. Admitedly, that didn't stop me with "The Message", but you just can't get more classic than that track, and the rest of the album is still good. Funny that the song most famous for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five doesn't even have Flash on it!

Liquid Swords

"De La Soul Is Dead" is still to my ears the best work they've ever done, and
the only album in the history of the genre where the skits aren't a complete
total utter absolute fucking waste of space and time.

Donuts and 36 Chambers are my jamz.

Operation Doomsday is catching up.

Does Flylo count as hip-hop? LA is my favorite album this year.

I've listened the fuck out of Madvillain and Clipse's Hell Hath No Fury.

Eric B/Rakim, GZA, and Ghostface, I dont consider human. more like demi-god

Obviously alot of fans of golden age/old school hip hop here, which is great. But makes it more surprising I havn't seen this record pop up yet:

No, it would be more like saying White Light/White Heat was one of your favorite punk records, which I probably would say if pressed.

I always wonder with hip hop history why the Last Poets, and in particular that album, doesn't get stronger mentions. The mix of vocal styles, the content, the lyrics (note their reclamation of the word "nigger" decades before NWA). Yeah, they're not based firmly in funk beats since funk hadn't happened yet, but the first major evolution of hip hop from those funk roots was towards jazz, where the Last Poets had resided to begin with.

I understand your choice here, but yeah, funk had happened, I mean that record came out in 70 or 71 and funk was happening. Other great groups like this were: Gil Scott-Heron,Watts Prophets and Kane. My favorite cut from that record (Last Poets) is ******'s Are Scared Of Revolution.
