my favorite rap album is ghostface's "Supreme Clientele". I've listened to it pretty much on a consistent basis since I was 14. I'm 24 now. In the car, in the gym, at home, walking around, eating. I can't remember places I haven't listened to it.

After that, the ones you'd expect. 36 Chambers, It Takes a Nation of Millions, Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, Paid in Full, Midnight Marauders. Criminal Minded. Geto Boys.

Some wildcards would be Company Flow's "Funcrusher Plus", I think the Big Boi's "Sir Lucious Left Foot" is as good as any hip hop ever made. I love first Jeru the Damaja lp. I would take Vaudeville Villain, even over Madvillainy. Id go with the first Roots, and then Phreology, pop Roots as it is.

UGK is only second to Wu Tang stuff for my my most listened to Hip Hop group but I never listen to their records all the way through.

Current stuff, I'm not ashamed to say it, I like Drake. His music is pretty. Rick Ross. And then Doomtree, BIG Krit, ASAP Rocky, all these dudes people are freaking out about.

I'm pretty stoned right now. But I've been back on rap for a while now. I have trouble listening to noise now that I have responsibilities and stuff.

First off, fuck most Hip Hop pre 87, the flows are weak and the beats repetitive. There's good stuff, but overall, the genre was still young and still finding itself. Very few people would argue that was its pique. Anyways, here's the best list I can come up with (not necesarily a "best of all time" list, but merely how I would rank my favorites)

1. Enter the Wu-Tang 36 Chambers- Wu-Tang Clan
2. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx- Raekwon
3. I'm Thraxx by Lil B
4. The Chronic by Dr. Dre
5. Tha Carter III by Lil Wayne
6. Ironman by Ghostface Killah
7. Pilot Talk I&II by Curren$y
8. Illmatic by Nas
9. Liquid Swords by GZA
10. Ready to Die by Notorious B.I.G.
11. Doggystyle by Snoop Dogg
12. Ridin' Dirty by UGK
13. Flockaveli by Waka Flocka Flame
14. City of Syrup by Big Moe
15. Return of 4eva by Big K.R.I.T.

Any questions?

This is so true. A$AP says absolutely nothing actually worth hearing, and genuinely seems more interested in doing drugs than making music. He stumbled upon a classic mixtape, and I predict we will hear very little even close to that compelling again.

word. he's basically an industry puppet. he gets help with everything, from the beat selection, to the lyrics, even to the clothes he wears. tweeny kids will eat it up though.

nice list, viewtiful. Return of 4Eva is the quintessential car music.
