Blowout Comb
Genocide and Juice
Fear Itself
Boxcar Sessions

Maybe an MC Eiht album too? The one where he had the same shoutouts at the beginning of every song

Everything is Everything by Brand Nubian dropped in 94 didn’t it?

Did anyone mention Word...Life by OC?

I forgot a lot of others.

Edit: Tical. Kicking myself for forgetting Tical smh

I can’t remember if All Balls Dont Bounce was 94 or 95. I feel like the Project Blowed compilation dropped in 94.

Peace,

You could include '96 as well, if you want.

The genre was still new enough that artists still had plenty of new ground musically and lyrically to cover. And also the culture of music making had progressed to the point that much of the musical innovations of the late '80s (sampling, multi's, detailed subject matter) had been perfected at this time.

It's hard to parse out if the music of this time was actually better or that because my (our generation's) tastes were cured at this time that this music sounds better to my (our) ears.

If the latter were true than kids of this newer generation are experiencing dope music even though it doesn't borrow much from the first Golden Age. Which means that kids nowadays are going what we went through back then.

But much of the hip-hop that I play too much comes from The Golden Age.

Also, this means that I am old as Hell.

Thank you God! /s /jk

94 did give us the debuts of three future greats, Nas, Kast and Biggie.

I know people are tied to certain years based on nostalgia but I have a hard time believing 91 had as many great albums.

88 I get but I’m still putting 94 over it.

94-95-96 is where it’s at imo.

the sound was transitioning from James Brown samples to P-Funk samples and jazz samples. Gangsta Rap hadn't completly taken over yet so de la soul could coexist with NWA, PE, DJ Quik, Main Source, Chi Ali, etc...

The list Anonymous posted of '94 is good too. Maybe, maybe, the top 3 outshine the best of '91 but overall '91 is a deeper crop.

Greatness came from all over the country in 94. A real banner year IMO. 91 was good in this respect, but other regions poured it on by 94.

..like, it took some people time to take in the birth of the "complete hip hop" albums of the later 80s ...it was such a new thing, but it definitely caught on by 89 and by the 90s, lots full rap albums of quality is pretty common, even though shops like sam goody still buried these LPs in R&B section!

Redman, Common Sense, Gravediggaz, Eiht, UGK, Thug Life, Spice 1, Organized Konfusion, OC, Artifacts, Warren G, Beastie Boys and Digable Planets are the anniversaries I'm most excited about.

Some slept on joints from 94: M.O.P, Lil ½ Dead, Kokane, Above the Law, Volume 10, Saafir, The Coup, Kurious, Casual, Extra Prolific, Boogiemonsters
