>KRS-One's had some weak albums. NAME A COUPLE, & Please for the LOVE OF GOD don't say SEX&VIOLENCE
> Run-DMC have pretty much >fallen off. EPMD definitely >had some whack shit. I REFUSE TO RESPOND TO YOUR INEBRIATED DAMNED RAMBLINGS: SHOW FUCKING RESPECT TO THE PIONEERS
>Tribe's group stuff was good, >but their solo efforts suck. SEE THE LUCY PEARL ALBUM & ANGIE STONE'S ALBUM FOR EVIDENCE TO DISPROVE YOUR ARGUMENTS, As if Mr. Muhammed wasn't in the group.
> De La Soul are >close, this is definitely a >toss-up. You might be >right about De La. ALL OF TRIBE'S COLLECTIVE SHIT IS JUST AS POTENT AS DE LA'S. YOU'RE MAKING NO SENSE!!
>Outkast are good, but not >up to the Roots level >(I'm not a big fan >of Southern rap)Then you have absolutely NO REAL SOUL. THEIR SECOND & 4th ALBUMS ARE AIR TYT!!
>Public >Enemy are close as well, >but again, not at the >same level. SHOW RESPECT TO THE FUCKING FOREFATHERS OR EAT A DICK!!
>NWA/Dr. Dre? > you have to be >kidding.
If I was the nigga hustlin weed to YOU, you couldn't get a BAG!!! If I was the nigga smokin with YOU I'd smoke alone!!!!
JUST FOR FRONTIN ON BOTH CHRONIC ALBUMS!!!!!
>Who says, they've put out four >stellar albums.
HOW'S THAT WHEN ORGANIX WAS ON SOME 3& 1/2 SHIT. oh but if you only said FOUR you DIDN'T INCLUDE THAT ONE DID YOU?!
I guess you're not REALLY a HIPHOP authority then, huh?
>That's more >than most of the groups >you mentioned.
ONCE AGAIN SEE DE LA & TRIBE.
YOU STUPID, STUPID- HI-TEK ON TRAIN OF THOUGHT
P.S. The roots (& hiphop as a whole) have YET to hit me with an album that moves me FOR YEARS like the following:
1.)ILLMATIC (the perfect harmony of beats, ghetto shit and plain old rhyme content, flow & skill)
2.)LOW END THEORY(Banging in my deck for GOD KNOWS HOW LONG, the Low End Theory had ALMOST reached that same apex that illmatic did, but its TRUE DISTINCTION from NASTY NAS premier, is its RANGE in production (from sample to LIVE INSTRUMENTS) and rhyme content(from Phife's ABSOLUTELY OUTSHININ presence whenever he grabbed the mic to Tip's Amazing range in topics given in story)
3.)STAKES IS HIGH (POS & DAVE put down their greatest performances on this proof that YOU CAN GET BEATS DONE WITHOUT A SAMPLE OR LIVE BAND)
4.)THE GROUP HOME ALBUM (IF YOU LOOKING FOR RHYMES, STAY FAR FAR AWAY. IF YOU LOOKING FOR BEATS, well PRIMO. yes they dropped two. BUT THOSE WHO KNOW, KNOW EXACTLY WHICH ONE I'M TALKING ABOUT!!! THIS ALBUM REALLY DOES PROVE BEATS CAN GET ANYBODY, & I MEAN ANYBODY BY)
