Actually it's by Deltron 3030 (i.e. a self titled album) which is Del, Dan the Automator and Kid Koala (I think, cbf checking)

Sorry to be a know it all but as a hip hop producer (albeit on a much, much smaller scale) I think it's only fair to credit all the people that made the music.

Tough. Illmatic will always be there, because it, along with Madvillainy, is the reason I got into hip-hop in the first place. Madvillainy is a tough one, because it's definitely the most important Doom album for me in terms of opening up my understanding of hip-hop. In fact, I probably like it more than most of my favourite hip-hop albums by other artists. However, as far as Doom's albums go, I love Operation Doomsday even more, and the more I get my head around King Geedorah the more I think it might also be a superior album. I also adore Black Bastards. Doom's definitely my favourite hip-hop musician at the moment, all told, so if I allowed more than one of his onto the list it would probably just be like 60% Doom...

Beyond that, it gets a bit trickier, because the genre's so varied and I haven't really been heavily into it for that long. Liquid Swords is currently my favourite Wu Tang release, so that would go on there. Mainstream cliche or not, I'm a huge fan of The Blueprint, primarily because Kanye on the top his game is a wonder. I'm also currently loving Donuts very much...

Further on from that, the problem becomes that their are so many I love, but roughly equally. The list would probably resemble:
  1. Doom - Madvillainy/Operation Doomsday/King Geedorah, depending on the day.
  2. Nas - Illmatic
  3. GZA - Liquid Swords
  4. Jay-Z - The Blueprint
  5. KMD - Black Bastards
  6. Dilla - Donuts
  7. Beasties - Paulís Boutique
  8. Whichever Doom I didnít pick at #1
  9. Ditto
  10. Company Flow Ė Funcrusher Plus
I donít know, that list seems totally unsatisfactory somehow. Would need to really sit down and listen to all the favourites properly in a short space of time to work out a real list. Also, I finally ordered Black Star, should be coming in the post today, and seeing how much I love Reflection Eternal and Black On Both Sides, that may well end up on thereÖ Anyway, enough rambling.
