The Chronic started a way of life...period. Dre simply produced the best overall hip hop album to ever drop on the west coast...need I say more?

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghostface is consistent....if nothing else....4.5 rating, Dec 30 2002
Ce commentaire est de: Supreme Clientele (Audio CD)
Ghostface gained his mc fame on Rae's "Only Cuban Linx" in 1995. At one point this guy was faceless. I mean yo...we didn't even know how he looked. Ghost then released his debut "Ironman" and was becoming one of the Clans most visible rappers. In comes "Supreme Clientele" where Ghost survives the ever popular sophmore slump. This LP is solid all the way threw with hot beats and lyrics..at times ghost's lingo can be confusing but hey...that's life...Overall, this is one of the Wu-Tangs best albums and Tony Starks is here for a while..

4.0 out of 5 stars You want ...Entertainment.., Dec 30 2002
ODB is the battery behind the Wu-Tang Clan. This MC always seems to have fun on the mic just as rap pioneers intended it to be. This album is hot! The production is cool and the lyrics are classic ODB rhymes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Method Man could have done a lot better...., Dec 30 2002
Ce commentaire est de: Tical (Audio CD)
Tical was as highly anticipated as Snoops Doggystyle. unfortunately this wasn't a classic album by no means. Rza used his throw away beats for the production to say the least. Lyrically Meth held it down and tracks like "Bring the Pain", "What the Bloodclot" and the grammy winning "All I Need" show that this mc can make a hit...The problem with Tical is that there are several tracks that just sounds rushed.

Ce commentaire est de: Enter the Wu-Tang (Audio CD)
Hip Hop has never been so gutter and underground. Wu-Tangs debut album sounds like the Rza produced the project in his basement. That's how it suppose to be you know. Along with Nas, Biggie and Blackmoon, Wu-tang gave the east coast much needed respect. Each track is amazing from the production to the lyrics...go do the knowledge god...

5.0 out of 5 stars When the East is in the house...., Dec 30 2002

Biggie Smalls drops his debut like an atomic bomb. I mean who can forget the first time "Juicy" was played on the radio. This was an MC that people felt on all levels. The album was almost flawless but it was the impact that made Ready to Die a classic. Biggie helped usher in an attitude that the east coast hadn't shown in years. Tracks such as "One More chance", "The What", "Machine Gun Funk", and "Things done changed" were hard to skip each time the album is played in a cd deck. The production is solid and the lyrics are incredible. Come take a ride down memory lane with the late great Biggie smalls...

A Tribe Called Quest will go down as one of the best groups in rap history. Midnight Marauders is flawless...period. Every beat and rhyme is on point. History was made in 1993..nuff said..

U-God has always been a good MC whenever he is featured on a track. His impact is greater that way. Unfortunately, the God can't hold down and entire album alone with the limited lyrical content..some of the beats on this joints are ok but overall...below average effort...one

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars for Mobb Deep this time around..., Dec 30 2002
Ce commentaire est de: Infamy Infamous... (Audio CD)
Mobb Deep will always get love for dropping "The Infamous" back in 1995. This was a classic disc. The group then released "Hell on Earth" and the serioud "Murda Musiz". Prodigy also unleashed the H.N.I.C. album receiving love from city to city. In comes "Infamy" where Mobb Deep seemed to lose the usual focus that they have..Prodigy was too busy throwing shots at Jay-Z (Takeover..diss track at Nas and Prodigy)b/c of the Blueprint. His lyrics were not as sharp and he left Havoc to fend for the group. Don't get me wrong...Havoc and Big Noyd held the Mobb down. There are some hot songs on this CD and it's not a weak album by no means......they just could have done better...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stillmatic is a Classic because of the ...Timing, Dec 30 2002
Nas was an MC with his back against the wall back in 2001. Jay-Z was being looked upon as the king of new york and the takeover was fresh in our minds. Nas sucked it all up and went into the lab to unleash "Ether". To me this track wasn't just at Jigga but at the entire rap world who doubted his skills. Nas took the radio by storm and released "Got Myself a G**" to show that he was ready for war. After Stillmatic was in the stores Nas dropped the monumental "One Mic" single and video. The hip hop nation saw an mc that went from being almost forgotten to the mc that exposed Jay-Z and new king of new york. Nas said he was Stillmatic obviously because Illmatic gave him praise as being one of hip hops finest..The Timing for Nasty Nas was perfect and he took advantage of the opportunity...
